    Recently I switched to the Dunlop 4D 200. Does anybody know the durability on these rackets? Do they break easily?

    Most rackets are very durable. I only saw two broken as they had been smashed to the ground.

    racquets generally don't break easily unless you abuse them. if something does go wrong and they break in the first year you have it and you bought it from an authorized dealer, they'll likely replace it.

    exactly , if bought from an AD you are safe and beyond if a racket that fails & you return it , i can't think of a racket company that will not honor a return.

    Just don't smash it against anything and you should be fine.

    I've only ever seen three racquets break that weren't a result of abuse. One was a Yonex that cracked in the head (apparently this was a known issue with some older Yonexes I'm told) and the other two were Wilson "Spin" 5.5s that I had that I snapped at 10 and 2, weirdest racquet ever (very thin!).

    I think you will be absolutely fine
