    What Dunlop model is most comparable to a Microgel Radical MP? I am looking to make the change and need something arm friendly and solid on volleys I like the 98 head but can got up or down slightly. I Really like the look and feel of Dunlops but the range of sticks is pretty large, I see the AG 300 looks to have similiar specs. Thanks.

    kevadodo, the Dunlop equivalent for the Radical MP is the 4D300. Same weight, same head size, different string pattern( 16x19 ). It's very arm friendly.

    IF you want to keep the 18x20 pattern, try the 4D300Tour. It has the same string pattern, same headsize, but it's 10g heavier. I've used it and it's a great stick.

    The 300T with a leather grip and 3 grams at 3 and 9 plus full poly at 44#s is insanity. The only issue is it weighs in at over 12oz, which has recently become a slight problem for me.

    But honestly, when I set it up like that it felt like a K90 or a modded pro mold that just swung easy.

    Thanks,

    The thought of a 16 x 19 is appealing to me, I saw a couple of them second hand for a nice price so wouldn't be scared to take the leap.

    Dunlop Dood,

    I put lead tape at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock position to make it a little more stable. Ii believe it added 3/4 oz to the frame.

    i took my m-fill 300 out for a spin yesturday since a while, it sounded so much different than the AG300. weird. with or w/o the dampener.

    the weight of stock grip that came with my
    AG100: 15.2g
    AG300: 14.5g

    M-fil 200

    Hi, new here, I have 3 M-FIL 200's. Is this the racquet blake used to play with? Looks as though I need to go to a lighter head and wider string pattern 16/20. These served me well for the duration especially on serve and volley. Right now I need some more control and a little extra umph in my ground strokes. I will probably put these up for sale if anyone is interested, also any suggestions on a replacement racquet.

    Sorry. You're just wrong.

    The AG100 is the best feeling racquet since the PS 6.0 85. Period.

    I use the Aerogel 200 (I have a couple). It might be time to start thinking of making a transition. I guess the natural choice might be the Biomimetic 200. I love the feel of my Aerogels and hope the bio line is similar.

    I picked up a pair of M-Fil 200 Pluses before Christmas. I'm digging them with a little lead in a couple spots.

    Great baseline racquets, and solid enough on volleys if you're paying attention.

    I used the 200G for a while then moved to Yonex. I tried the Maxply McEnroe - the graphite that looks like a woodie, and really liked that one except for the god awful looks. I wish they would bring that one back with an updated paint job.
