Not much has been said about this racket on these boards. It's heavier and higher swingweight than the last 200 seem to be going against the trend. Has anyone tried it?

They don't respect the specs they provide.

1st, those 325 grams (unstrung) are totally unrealistic.

You mean a racquet brand sometimes tells lies?

i tried this racuqet out about three weeks ago. i really could not tell a difference between this racquets swingweight and the 200g. the m-fil 200 did have more power than the 200g.

crosscourt, I played an entire doubles match with one this weekend; so far I like it, but it was hard to judge the feel because it had some bad factory strings in it (it was strung with Dunlop's new "m-fil" 16g string, and there was almost NO ball feel - kind of like Prince NXG). There had been some significant tension loss on this string job as well.

Despite the strings, serving and volleying were a dream with this stick. It does play heavier than the HM200g (my current weapon), but the weight never seemed to be an issue during my match.

That's about all I can tell for now. I should get a chance to try a different demo at my club this weekend, so I can maybe post some comments about the feel once I get to hit with a frame that has some better strings.

I love how the new mfils look.... What is the grip shape like? Square or rectangular?

Power Game, the grip shape is typical Dunlop - they are square.

There is always tolerance to consider of course, but those redundant 10-15 grams on the hefty side repeats like a rule...
