Yes, Ms. Steffi Graf did great with one early in her career. McEnroe's doubles partner, Peter Fleming also used one. I'm sure there were some other pros in the 80's as well.

that was the 200g.

i am referring to the current discontinued maxply mcenroe (graphite) that he is using now.

Gotcha. Sorry, yes that's a big difference. Your thread title does say Dunlop Maxply McEnroe and not the 200g. I sure can't think of any that have. Good question.

Dunlop made the frame as a throw back to the "good old days " of a simpler graphite frame, with Mac's name to try to help sell it. It is a frame several 4.5 45=yo I know use for the old school weight and feel.

Yeah, nice stick, but unfortunately too stiff for my liking.

Have never seen it anyone's hands but Mac and my own --sold it a few years ago, incredibly solid at net for its weight, extremely head-heavy feel to it, quite stiff. It's a racquet a pro COULD have used with minimal mods given the penchant for plenty of SW.
