Two days ago I received a Dunlop 4D 300 Tour. I received and a few sets of poly just to try. I got it strung with MSV Focus Hex 1.18 black @ 51lbs. It was first time hitting with poly. I have to admit that if the Focus Hex was 1.30 even at 51lbs I am not sure I'd play. I had to adjust. Hopefully the 4D 300 Tour is lighter enough than my K 6.1 and PS 6.0 95 and I could generate power.

What amazed me though was that I have the impression that with the ProStaff 6.0 original 95 could produce more spin or at least I had easier access to spin even strung with Rip Control 16 or Tonic 16 @ 53lbs.
I had a 2 hours practice session today and used only the AG 4D 300 Tour.
Tomorrow during the practice session I will use all three, PS 6.0 95 with Rip Control 16 @53, PS 6.0 95 with Tonic 16 @ 53 and AG 4D 300 Tour with MSV Focus Hex 1.18mm @ 51...

Second day practicing with Dunlop AG 4D 300 Tour strung with MSV Focus Hex 1.18 @ 51lbs...
I do not know if it is the transition from a K 95 or a PS 6.0 95 to a lighter racquet but the Dunlop with Focus Hex felt like a cannon... First day it felt more stiff...
And as I dial in more and more I start to explore the spin potential of a full poly setup...
When I restrung the Dunlop I will raise the tension at least 2 lbs...
And I will get the PS 6.0 95 16x18 with PL II 1.15 or Blackcode 1.18 to make the ultimate comparison...
