Interesting, I didn't think the specs would change that much from the 4D100 to the BM100.

Also, as a poster had said before, the pj has changed from the EUR version.

100 should come with a leather grip, 16x18 and capped grommets

EUROPE:
Head Size: 90 sq. in. / 580 cm².

Strung Weight: 330g.
Balance: 320mm HL (7.2 pts)
Swingweight:

The most noticeable one are the balance point. I don't know whether 5 and 7 pts would make much different.

They ruined the paintjob. Why in the world would Dunlop change the Bio 100's beautiful neon green and black paintjob to this new ugly teal one? :confused: It makes absolutely no sense to me.

I was considering buying one before, but not any longer. :(

BP, they indeed made it ugly as he11. It doesn't even look like a player's stick.

Paintjobs are very nice as are the specs, especially on the MP.

I'm really looking forward to hitting with both, especially the new 100.

Its sw has gone from 308 to 323 and balance from 8 to 5 pts HL, so I'm anticipating more plowthrough and perhaps a tad more stability on impact.

I like the green more, to be honest. The 400 looks nice in that colour, I guess, but I don't see why they would make the change, surely the 400 could have been some other colour?

I think they might be colour blind, though. I was having a look at a few of the 'lite' sticks at the club the other night. YUCK! (the pjs, not the racquets)

And what's up with the 245 sw on the 95? Cos. are just plain dumb.

Yeah BP. Not feeling well tonight! 345...I really don't understand. So, a 95 is supposed to be easier to play than an 85, but these dopey manufacturers give the damn thing a huge sw? What idiocy. I have to start a racquet company...so painful.

it is just one racquet in the 200 range, man, sheesh. They even say you need to be able to handle the sw...

I have the stock 200, it's a 95 it's awesome.

different strokes

The 200 tour has the perfect specs for me. I'm playing this racquet for over a year now and I love it (albeit the 4D 200 tour).
There is also:
200
200 plus
200 lite
The 200 lite SW is only 308!

That 200 tour would be awesome and addictive but that 345 SW would be a slow death in 3 sets!

There is a shop over here that sells Dunlop rackets for dirt cheap, i think they own Dunlop so maybe that's why but the 100 costs £70

Right, but the others you mention aren't appealing to me at all (thicker, more hollow most likely). Starting with high 320s would make more sense...easier to add weight (leather grip, lead etc.).

Well, I can't. I prefer 330 or below and there's no way I'm buying a neon yellow, aqua and black racquet unless they took $75 off.

the regular 200 (sw 322) has identical beam to the 200 tour and has scored extremely well in the TW review. http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/reviews/DB2H/DB2Hreview.html

you are talking out of your bottom, sir...

Totally different racquet. 20.5 isn't 20 and 18x20 is totally different than 16x18.
