    Can anyone compare the Dunlop Biomimetic 300 to the Dunlop AG 4D 300 (power/control/spin/stability/maneuverability/touch/feel/etc.)?

    After all my demoing, looking for a lighter AG 4D 200 Tour with a bit more pop, my AG 4D 300 is about as close as I've found. I thought it might be the Biomimetic 200 Lite, but I demoed it twice and could just never get enough power out of it.

    After playing with my Dunlop AG 4D 200 Tour for so long, which has a 4 3/8" grip (plus an overgrip), the 4 1/2" plus on overgrip on my AG 4D 300 feels like a club.

    So I'm trying to decide whether to go with the Biomimetic 300 (with a 4 3/8" grip) or just order a couple of the AG 4D 300 racquets with a 4 3/8" grip.

    Thanks for any comparisons you can give between the two racquets.

    Just a quick question for you. What did you find were the differences between the 200G and the AG 4D 300, given that they are quite closely spec'd?

    He actually used the 200 tour, not the 200G

    Yep got that, but I recall he also demo'd the 200G before embarking on the last round of demos and found it underpowered. Hence the question, as I would assume the AG 4D 300 would actually be less powerful than the 200G, but perhaps do something else better?

    Very similar racquets in my opinion. Differences seem to be better maneuverability, control, and slightly crisper feel with the 200 Lite; better plowthrough and ultimately more power from the 200G. Overall I preferred the 200 Lite.

    I do/did use the 200 Tour (now the AG 4D 300) but demoed the 200G a while back.

    My AG 4D 300 actually feels more powerful than the 200G or the 200 Lite, by a large margin. Of course I have it strung to my liking (poly/syn 50/53) which may help bring a bit more power to the racquet, but only being 3.5 points headlight the 300 seems to really bring the 'meat of the racquet' through the ball.

    Hi TripleB, why did you decide to drop the 4D200 Tour? Just curious, being a happy 4D200T user.

    Basically weight...especially when trying to be offensive with my returns and on serves. Found better success in both areas when I started trying lighter racquets.
