    Hi guys, can anybody give me any info about this frame from just this pic? It's a 300G obviously, I know its 98sq inches, but what model is it i.e. Muscle Weave, Hotmelt etc...this is probably a stupid question but i know NOTHING about Dunlop sticks. Maybe the 300G is just called 300G and nothing else?

    If anybody knows what year it is from or has any specs on this stick that would be great too.

    Also does anybody play with one? Any feedback? I am thinking of buying this to add to my collection. Thanks!

    Hotmelt. IMO, best of the 300 series so far. Great platform for modding, nice flex, good feel...

    Thanks for your help louis netman!

    If it's a great platform for modding, does that mean it's a bit light? I prefer sticks to be at least 11oz unstrung from the factory, I don't really like adding lead tape:(

    Yeah I've still got mine and it is a bit light... um, year was 2001 or 2... hotmelt, (muscleweave was before this), responsive thin beam, nice rolled edges, but yes just too light so I've always had lead all over it...

    Yep here it is: link

    And the review too: link

    Yes, it is "Hotmelt". This is still my first choice of sticks, uncustomized btw. Buy it if you have the chance. If you're then not satisfied with how it plays you will probably have no problems in finding another buyer. Quite a few people are looking for/using this discontinued frame. My collection is getting seriously worn, I am considering an "upgrade" (?) to Aerogel 300...

    Know that for many posters, this frame has a special feeling. Many dislike its predecessors including the M-fil and the Aerogel

    This thread has confirmed for me that I need to make a trip back to my local big box sporting goods store and buy the one they have new on the rack for $30 bucks. The grip size is too big for me so I didn't get it when I saw it about a week ago but I'll be returning today to buy it.

    I'm pretty sure this is an older frame; the M-Fil's and Aerogels came after the Hotmelts...
