    I noticed that a certain competitor to TW has these listed for sale on their website. Any chance TW are getting this frames in as well?

    I saw the ad in the new Tennis magazine. I just checked website. They are selling way under the price of the M series. Did Dunlop repaint the Slazengers that didnt sell or is this a marketing tactic to combat the new/old Prince reissues and also compete against Wilson's low price Six One releases?

    Very interesting.

    Maybe I'm late to the party but on Dunlop's website they have an F100 (which they sell on TWEurope), an M200/300, an F300 Tour and M500. All with the 'classic' label affixed to them.

    Are these going to be released to the american public or just overseas. They seem to all have the classic specs, thinner beams and less stiff than the current line-up.

    If these were indeed coming back it would be awesome, but I am hoping that TW gets them also because I would rather deal with them. On aforementioned competition's website, they have the images and the descriptions of the racquets swapped. Same in the magazine advertisement as well. How do they not even know the difference? That's why I'd rather deal with people whom I know in full confidence have knowledge about what they're selling. Viva la Tennis Warehouse!:twisted:

    Yes, we will be getting in the Muscle Weave 200G and Hotmelt 300G racquets. Look for them to be up on our website within the next few days.

    I can't see which Slazenger that would be? The specs don't line up with any of their frames. TW Will you be reviewing these to confirm they are the same makeup and playability of the originals?

    This thread deserves a "like" button.

    Will it be followed by a video review of the MW200g?

    LafayetteHitter,

    We will definitely be hitting these frames and comparing them to the originals (we may have one or two still kicking around). We are looking at filming video only for these and attach the old written reviews if they play similar to the originals.

    Why? They're actually better than the current frames if they are identical to the originals. Prince did a great job with the re-issue Graphite and Response. I hit with both and both are awesome sticks.

    I know you guys are busy over there but if you could post some initial thoughts of the re-issues, that'd be great. Especially how they compare in terms of 'feel' or 'flex' to the originals.

    TIA

    The specs of reissues are available via Racquet Finder.

    Last night, TW attempted to put the MW200 on its website under a new heading called "Dunlop Classics." It had bad images links, empty description and specs, etc. Then it was removed after a little while. The whole section (Dunlop Classics) was also gone.

    Do not know if that means anything.

    I'm quite sure. Especially since those specs come up when "Current Models Only" is checked. And when not, there are 2 series of specs, slightly different specs.

    Alex78,

    At this time, it looks like TW Europe will not be receiving these racquets.

    Oh, that would be too bad - but maybe there's a chance you can make it happen...
    Thanks as always for your quick response, though!
