View Full Version : Dunlop 200 G HM - like a woodie ?

I just demoed the 200 G again after a year of weekly lessons and playing with a Prince More Response. I found I could hit well with it, but only if I used a square stance and stepped into the shot - i.e. the way I was taught to hit back in the 70's. The feel of the racquet when playing reminded me of my old Slazenger Challenger as well.

Does anyone else think it's somehow similar to a wooden ?

I agree ; never used the 200G but used the Prestige Classic . The 18x20 pattern is just like the pattern of the wood Kramer I used for yrs. just bigger . For yrs. I thought I was getting the best of both worlds dense string & a bigger sweet spot.

The dunlop max 200g plays the most like a wood racket because of the flex, internal dampening and string pattern. The other graphite based rackets that played very close was the dura-fiber models. I bet not too many played those rackets but they were really sweet. I still have a few of them and one strung with natural that is a dream to hit.

The other one wich plays similar to the old Dunlop Max 200 G and feels like wood is the Pro Kennex Core 1 #6.
