    I've noticed there's barely any pics of MW200g (especially the 90sq)...
    As I'm originally from Poland but moved to UK, I had to call my old man and ask him if he could send me over one of my Muscle Weave's:)
    Haven't used them for ages and don't even remember how they perform... Currently 4d 100. I'll review the MW and compare both shortly.
    Anyway here it is...

    Ahh Yes.

    I remember those. I had 4 of them at one point. I let them go a while back. Beautiful racquet. I also played the 95 which was wonderful as well.

    It was a frame I picked up and played and never wanted to put down again. Just a real smooth racquet. The only downsides for me were producing spin and sometimes generating enough power from the baseline. Although I always strung them on the high end.

    I could serve some great flat bombs and volley extremely well with those sticks (90's). It may have needed some weight to beef it up a little like the newer 100's from Dunlop.

    Very interested in your review.

    I have a 95/98 MW 200 (can't remember the exact head size), and I love it. Strung it up with a 17g multi and it's a blast to play with.

    There a mid/90, a midplus/95 and an OS/107? version.

    I have some midplus pro stocks with that paint job from a former top player.
    They have darts in the throat as opposed to the rounded corners of the stock versions.

    Had a 95 as a borrowed racquet for a while. Loved it. Bee-yootiful racquet.

    Do you know if the Hot Melt 200G 95 grommets fit the Muscle Weave 200G 95?

    They do. HM and the MW grommets are interchangeable.

    I bought mine from Automatix on the board here. Nice stick - it played a bit stiffer than I was expecting and for me, it was one of those frames where the balance didn't really right to me.

    No regrets though - I'm very happy to have it.

    Dunlop is selling a brand new Muscle Weave racket. It's back and you should check it out.
