    I have already done a search on this topic. Some posts say the stiffness is in the mid 40s, some say 60, does anyone know what the exact #, or atleast a close estimate is? I would also like to know the beam width and string pattern.

    vkartive,
    I played with the Dunlop Max 200G for 13 years. It was indeed a very flexible racquet. Probably the smoothest frame ever made due to its unique injection molding manufacturing process. The flex was actually only 40, so Meh is correct. Not a whole lot stiffer than some of the wood racquets of its era when it first came out in 1983.

    Here are the official specs in this article: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Reviews/MW200G/MW200GReview.html

    The Max 200G supposedly stiffened a little on impact so it's actual 'in play' stiffness would be a little higher than it's measured value.

    I'd be surprised if it's as low as 40. My F200's are much more flexible than the Max200G and they came in at 43.
