    I have been playing with the Babolat Pure Control Zylon 360 + for the past 3 years now and am looking for a change. Which racquet would suit me better the Dunlop M-Fil 200 Plus or the Babolat Pure Control Team Plus Mp racquets? I am a 5.0 baseliner who is a college player. Please help me!

    well lets see... im right handed, two handed backhand, semi western grip on the forehand, usually spin or kick my serve in, strong return and groundstrokes. I am between a 5.0 and 5.5 male college player. Is that enough info?

    What did you not like about your old racquets and what are you looking for in a new racuquet?

    It would seem to me that the Dunlop would be a better fit for you. However if you like to grind your opponenet down and you can get used to the PC than it would indeed be a great weapon but that's a big IF. Demoing comes to mind but if you can't, Westerners seem to like the 200g more than the PC. One piece of advice shots from the PC would have very little dwell time so I would assume that would translate into less brushing. On the same note don't get intimidated by the 18x20 string pattern of the Dunlop.

    If I were u, i'd go with the 200 plus. I think u can adjust to it easily. It'll give u a bit more reach on the court and it's not as stiff. Pick your string, tension and ready to go...
