    Good article - my interest has picked up a bit, at least for the F 3.0 Tour (from what I can see, the only new offering with any real weight/plow-potential).
    Looking forward to TW's review of the F3T.

    In the article, the Dunlop rep seems to be vetted pretty well on the supposed 'enhancements'.

    Nice article, however the Dunlop guy just said the previous Dunlops racquets because of its head shape have smaller sweet spot, so they're trying to enlarge the sweet spot by enlarging the racquet head.

    I tested a Dunlop 400T while back, I really noticed the small , sweet spot even for 100sq in racquet.

    I'm not sure if what he said was good, because in between the lines he said Dunlop racquets have smaller sweet spot, which clearly is a disadvantage in losing power and control.

    I thought the new lines were based around the same headshape as the 400 range. I might be wrong though but they do look similar.

    So much hype and wrong stuff...

    When the guy said the ball rolls across the stringbed I stoped reading.

    I thought the idea of the Bio was to have rackets with nice comfort and feel and there is such a nice range for all levels and styles of play. I know these firms need to do a new pj to re-market but I don't know why they are trying to make something that plays more like another brand.

    I love my Bio.
