    Surely, we don't need yet another thread? There are already extensive threads for the 300, 200 and 100, which must surely cover what the majority of people use.

    Hey Damp,
    Hope it's going well. I got into the 200 Tour because of its extra heft and 16X18 string pattern. So far so good. Got in some really good s&v practice yesterday -- plenty of oomph and feel, on the serves and the volleys. :)

    I'd love to see Dunlop producing a 4D 100 Tour.

    Good question. :wink:

    What I've done is hand select a couple of sticks that swing much, much lighter than TW's spec (sw 352 -- yikes!). Their strung weights are around 352 grams and they're around 7-8 pts HL. So far so good with the arm..

    Actually, the more often you play with a heavier racquet, the stronger you get and the weight becomes a non-issue. All of my racquets thanks to double overgrips and head protector tape weigh in at ~350gms or more.

    How does one actually do this? Do you visit a retail store and bring your digital scale with you?

    Rev, that all depends on your age and build. I'm a lighter guy north of 40, and swinging a club for three, long sets can take its toll.

    Yep, I visited my LTS and used their scale and balance beam to narrow down the number of candidates (he had a good number of Tours on hand) -- and then I swung and swished them around the shop. The one I picked was the same one that the LTS owner thought swung the easiest. For the 2nd one, I dispensed with the scale and beam, and just went with feel. Very happy with both sticks.

    I'm in.
    I have 2 Control Revelations. Don't know anything about them though, I got them for free. Fantastic racquets.
    If anyone knows anything about them and know about a racquet similar to it, please let me know.

    Hey there. I'm still playing around with lead and grip setups on my 400G. How did you lead yours up (assuming you did)?

    And how do those two hand selected gems compare in weight and balance to your precious 100s?

    Finally i just got my brand new pair of AG100, fantastic racquet, a lot of control, perfect for a "modern" all-court player.

    IN the past I've owned:
    2 M-fil 200's
    2 M-fil 300's

    I currently swing an Ag 300 Tour 4D.

    THe best thing I love about my Dunlops is that I can get them brand new at about 20 dollars below the cost of a comparable Wilson or Head and the quality is much better as far as I'm concerned.

    Agree. Cost is lower, quality is much better, and the Aerogels and 4Ds are among the best-performing frames on the market today.

    Count me in

    I'm switching to the 4D 100 or 200 tour. I'm demoing both now and play a tournament tomorrow so I'll post my thoughts then, I hit today with them for 30 mins each and liked them both.

    I played with both and since i felt snowboarding my arm hurts pretty easy, the 200 made it hurt in 1 minute, while the 100(not 4d) made me fall in love in 5 hits. But i don't really have a good amount of time playing with the 200.

    Thanks, and I won the tournament without dropping a set so these racquets must be good :)

    200 tour: I was very impressed with this one and it really surprised me. Even though the swingweight is up there (353) it was really easy to move around. I wasn't hitting late and it was easier to take the ball off the rise (a la Davydenko style) because of the stability. I didn't feel like the racquet was pushed around at all and I played against a very heavy hitter when I used this. I got plenty of pop and spin with it from the baseline and was easy to change from defense to offense. Volleys were solid because of the high swing weight and it had a lot of touch and feel for drop volleys. I got plenty of pop and spin on my serves. This racquet is a must demo for Dunlop lovers.

    100: I didn't like it at first so I added 4 inches of 1/4 lead tape (about 4 grams in total) at the 3 and 9 positions. I like it a lot after that. Groundstrokes had a ton of topspin and pace on them, but not as much pace as the 200 tour. I thought it was easy to move and could get more spin, but had to work for the pace where with the 200 tour the racquet did the work. Volleys were good but not as stable as the 200. Touch was about the same but if I was to play a lot of doubles
    I would have to get stronger so I could control it at net better. Serves were amazing, just like what everyone says about it. It is one of the top serving sticks out there today.

    I was really pleased with both and will play with them one last time tomorrow before I make my decision. I'll edit this post tomorrow if I find anything different.

    I play with 2 AG500s...a really fun racquet to play with, though the looks leave a little to be desired.

    Still using my heavily modded M-Fil300's. I have three all about 13oz and 8points HL. Love the easy access to power and spin with a thin Poly at low tension. A friend (Wilson 6.1 lite user) hit with one of mine today and was hitting with much more depth and pace. Needless to say I will be modding up his Wilson soon!

    Intrigued by the 4D models, especially the 200 and 300 Tour models.

    What I like about Dunlop is they are well made, fairly cheap amd lend themselves to modification. Hit with lots of other frames and not found anything yet to match my Dunlops.

    Congrats on winning the tournament -- and with new racquets, to boot. That's impressive. :)

    Your comments on the 200 tour and the 100 mirror my experience pretty closely. For instance, yesterday, with my 200 tour, I volleyed away several very hard hit line drives with ease and with authority. My opponent was taken aback (and, later, quite complimentary). On groundies, dealing with pace or spin or both was no problem -- this racquet exhibits tremendous stability. Very confidence-inspiring.

    Agree with your observations of the 100. That's why I'd love to see Dunlop introduce a tour version of that stick -- with more weight, evenly distributed.
