    Good stuff...
    I ordered 1 Aero500 in Nov, one in Jan, and one in Feb, and all seem matched as close as possible, came in 2 days, and strung exactly as I ordered.
    Good stuff....

    I've ordered tennis stuff all over the innerwebs, and I can honestly say that TW does the best job. Things are always packaged correctly, and it always arrives on time. I get 90% of my stuff from TW.

    Hey Vincent, which freight option did you go for?

    I am going to get some bits and pieces for my kids (I have too many racquets already!) and was planning to go the TW route. (the green one in melbourne seems to have lost the plot)

    So, thoughts?

    I agree. I get faster service to SC than I can from an east coast company(no names).

    Hey Vincent, those are some beautiful frames you have there.

    I played with Dunlop several years ago, and feel they are a very underrated company. How do you like the way the 4D 100 plays?

    $10 over all, just ask them to pick out X number of racquet closest to a specific spec. "MRT Services"

    $20/racquet if you want them to mod it with Lead tape to a specific SW, Balance and Mass


    I used the Fedex Int. Priority (3-5days) which cost me $63 USD...[The package was 9.1lbs/4kgs] but if your order is under a certain cost and mass they can "mail" it over which take around 2 weeks or so.. which only cost $11 which is still relatively cheap compared to how much Australia charges for tennis products..

    Hope this helps haha

    As long as the items you've ordered are under 1000AUD in value, then you wont be charged the 10% of tax. This is for Australia anyway, but check with your local customs office~

    Swings easier than my aBLX90s
    Has a Larger Sweetspot than my aBLX90s
    A touch more power than my aBLX90s
    Has more "bite" than my aBLX90s


    Well worth it :)

    Get some lead at 12 and those leather grips + overgrips on!

    Guarantee you will love it at 340grams, 320mm - 325mm balance.

    I like he fact the Dunlops 100, 200s and 300s all have a nice beam shape that you can feel each side of but isn't "sharp" in your hand like the wilson 90s.

    Could you let me know if you think the TW leather increases/ decreases the gripsizre compared to the synthetic, I don't if it's me but the Hydramax replacement grip seems thin.

    Never knew TW charges a flat rate for the whole order. I always ordered one at a time and paid $10. Maybe I should start ordering multiple at a time.

    Neither do I, normally. (in fact, lycra clad middle aged men riding 10 000 dollar bikes from coffee shop to coffee shop really annoy me)

    In this case, however, I made an exception!

    What racquet is this? I can see Dunlop but what model?? I saw Almagro playing with a Dunlop but I looked on the website and I think it said it was Dunlop 500 but this one looks different. THanks,

    lol

    you can contact TW after you've ordered the items, asking for a MRT racquet matching, alternatively you could get TW to do the order for you and ask them while ordering via email :)
    (Check with them though...)
