    I have a Rev Tour Pro 95; purchased it used. Played with it for a couple of times. It's a good racquet but found it too light for me and compare it to MFIL 200. I added lead tape at 9 and 3 o'clock - it helped stabilized the racquet, bringing the racquet weight up from 12oz to 12.3oz.

    Very old school feel and the frame is not as flexilbe as the MFIL200. I just got a new set of grommet and head cover for it - I will need to have it restring inorder to get a better feel on how the racquet plays.

    Revelation Tour Pro 95 came in at 27 and weighs 12oz ( I weighed mine before and after adding the tape). Or you may have seen a non US version then (that's a possiblility).

    Is this new or used? If used - the owner might have cut it down to 27inch. Just a thought....

    Here's the link to the specs of different racquets. Follow the instruction, navigate thru the Dunlop and you'll see the spec. Maybe this will help you find the answers you need.

    I used to hit with this many years ago. It is extremely comfortable, with a strong vibration absorbing system. The throat is very thin and flexy, while the head is fairly stiff. It would be a tweener today, at the lower end of tweener power. Because it is a Dunlop, it is hard to get 2-3 that match up in weight and balance, etc. I gave it up as too powerful, when my swing developed. Now that I am an old man, it probably would be a better fit. BTW, it is very different from the racquet with the same name and paint job, but 1 inch longer. The extended racquet was lighter.

    You are Welcome Fortunecookiesjc!

    I think you or your friend will like this racquet, even though its rated weight (strung) at 12oz. This racquet is very maneuverable due to 6 pt head light, offers adequate power with the medium stiff frame. Spin should not be a problem as well because of the 16x19 open string.

    The only thing you'll need to tinker is the string tension.

    I hit with the Tour Pro Exact a few years ago - someone I knew was selling a couple. They were basically new.
    I took them out to the courts and tried them for a day. I liked them. They were far too light for me, though - but I liked the way they hit.
    A friend at the courts that day tried them, too - and he liked them as they were.
    So, knowing I'd have to play around with the weight and balance of them, and he wouldn't, I let him take them.
    He's still got them - and, depending on the day, he either loves them or hates them - as is always the case with any tennis player and any racquet.

    Don't think you have to go that low - I'd say between 55 to 60lbs. Unless you have TE. With the open string pattern, you can string it in the upper 50's - racquet won't feel like board.
    As others have chimed in the Tour Pro felt light; you might just need to get use to playing with it the first time.

    Let me know how it plays....

    I'm with kinsella on this one.

    I owned one and gave it a serious try, having read at TW that it's a kind of Dunlop version of the popular Wilson Pro Staff 6.1.

    However, I could never get much control with it. Some good power, but it always seemed I'd hit shots a foot or two out. Maybe the fact that it was a bit stiffer, and the flex arrangement; some factor caused this for me.

    I was hitting with it today and its very very low powered. Just need o get used to it but its nice to play with. Dont think i get too much spin with it but i feel i can hit as HARD as possibly can and still be in. Its a nice racquet solid purchase for 30 dollars

    Its similar to my original 6.1 but felt it was lighter and more control

    i do a more in debt about how i feel about it.

    It has a leather grip and i dont really like it. Putting a syntec on for later try

    I played with these back in the 90's. They are nice sticks with an old school feel, but with an extra bit of pop. I developed shoulder problems while using them, but of course before that I used a 200g which was preceeded by a Maxply.

    It would be a fun racquet to hit with once and awhile , but I think there are a lot of better racquets out there now.

    Nope. Sold one on these boards and gave the other one to a friend about 5 years ago. Happy hunting.

    How does it compare to the MAX 200G? Does it feel way stiffer? Someone mentioned that it has a very old school feel to it... Well, when I think of old school feel, the first racquet that comes to mind is the MAX 200G. That thing felt almost as if it was made of wood... So, how do the two compare?

    200g is much more woodlike. The revelation tour pro has quite a bit more power. If you want a revelation that is more woodlike your could search for what I think was called the revelation select pro, instead of red it is gold in color. Someone tried to sell me one once, and it played like a select pro without the pop. I assume it was more flexible.
