    i am interested in buying some Dunlop M Fil 200 Plus Rackets but I'm not sure how they play.
    Does anyone have them? What are their characteristics? How do they play?
    I'm looking for a control orientated racket with some weight but not too much that is stable and has some pop.

    I'm looking at this the Aerogel 300 or Wilson K Six One Team.

    yeh i was thinking about the m fil 300 but i thought it was too light and that it wouldn't be stable enough.

    The Dunlop Aerogel 300 is a very good racquet, great control, helps your serves, but some people say it causes too much vibration on your arm? I dont really think thats true. Its a very comfortable racquet.

    For the M-fil 200, cant say i played with that but the M-fil 300 is a very good racquet also, adding on to LanEvo's post.

    I've seen posts by those who like the frame but in my experience, it was junk. Way too light and anemic. I tried lead, lower tensions and even a leather grip. I had absolutely no sting on the ball and the frame was not good at the net.

    Funny thing is, I had one of my best league records ever with it. I think the opponents weren't used to seeing such lousy hits and had no idea how to hit them back. :)

    i found both the mfil 200 16x19 and the mfil 300 to be very similar.

    they are both relatively light and solid frames. they do everything well and are decent frames, especially for the money. they are both better values than the aero 300 or the six-one team. if you are used to a heavy racquet you can always add some lead.

    I'm still undecided.
    Dont no whether to get get the AG 300, K six one team, or 200 m fil plus.
    Which one do you reckon would be better for a strong all court junior?

    i was thinking about leading the k six one team up a bit.
    Maybe making it a tad more head light.
    Anyway i also like the Dunlop M Fil 200 plus.
    Looks like a solid racket.

    If you mean the original Plus, it a nice stick. If you mean the one that was meant to replace the 18x20 M-Fil (aka The Best Tennis Racquet in History), turd.

    the mfil200 (97 sq inch)
    is flexier than its rating and is very good
    racket--easy to swing, thin 20 inch beam, and a solid hit. I liked it better than the mfil 300, Ag 300 or Ag 200.
    I added a little weight to the handle
    (dunlop has an easy open butt cap to
    add putty inside)
