    Any of the Dunlop or racquet gurus out there able to shed some light on the differences between the purplish-blue/green paint scheme Dunlop MAX 200G Pro III as compared to the earlier versions of the racquet? Thanks in advance.

    More info here. Probably little difference except for the PJ.

    I have a max 400i which is a open string pattern (18x16) version of the 200G.

    Very little, if any, difference except for the nifty pj. I have few Pro III and they hit like a typical Max 200g.

    Agree. I used both for a dozen years. I think the paint job was Dunlop's way of trying to keep the frame look current. I like the looks of both paint jobs, tell the truth. What a fine frame!

    i've noticed the older max 200g's were a bit heavier than the ones with the golden stripes that had mcenroe's autograph. the older ones i'm referring to are the ones with the green stripes around the hoops.

    I always felt that the Pro was more flexible then the original or mcEnroe signed one.

    There were very distinct differences between each of the Max 200G iterations and its something a decent player would notice quite quickly. The purple/green was softer than the other versions (although it was closer to the original than the olive/green model) and had a greater tendency to break. The first three editions of the Max200G were the best, my favourite being the 87 model.
