    im not sure if its coincidence, but it seems like a lot of the pros who use dunlop racquets have one handed backhands

    Talkin' pros or recreational players and teaching pros?

    Either way, I'm with you. Maybe it's the historic name.

    I have had a one handed BH since iI started [age 6]. Used Dunlops all through juniors, college and then some. Great sticks (Maxply, Maxply McEnroe, Max 200g, various 200 Gs). Best balls made, too.

    good observation but doubt if its anything more than coincidence. if you are implying that dunlop makes obh friendly racquets, thats unlikely

    Yep, they do. And I'll tell you why.

    Dunlop racquets are for very loopy players, who don't really like to muscle the ball. On a 2HB, you'll see more muscling, but with a OHB it is much more loopy.

    I tried it out and got the same feedback from others, so that's why.
