    Hi TW, so I recently purchased a NEW Mfil 200 18x20 from TW. But the problem is that the comestics is different from my original (OLD) Mfil 200 18x20 (did not buy from TW).
    I never known that there were two different version of the mfil 200 18x20 before. Any mfil 200 users can help me out here.
    Is there any difference between the two frames? I don't have a scale so I can't weight them. Any information on them?

    The shade of blue is about the same. But the weird thing is thaton TW, they show a picture of the OLD model but I was shipped a NEW model so essentially, I received a different racquet from the one pictures from TW.

    They are the same model... it's just that when the M-Fil came out there Was the big Dunlop logo change and that's why they have slight differences... so don't worry they're the same racquets :)

    I have the "new m-fil" in your second set of pictures, I bought it in the uk. I think the newer cosmetics look better. All the rackets look brighter on TW for some reason.

    ^Does the handle feel loose/ creaky as if something is about to break after you hit a hard shot?

    i have both actually, the "older" one you have is an older paintjob of dunlop m-fil 200. the racket is the same though, i can't feel any different between the 2.( i did the opposite as you did...i brought the newer version first and brought the older version from a friend...)

    Hey tennisfa, did you actually weight them on a scale or just go on feel? Also, does any of your mfil 200 have the loose/creaky feeling in the handle?
