    I just switched from my Aeropro Drive Strung with Babolat Pro Hurricane and Babolat XCel Premium 17 to a dunlop m-fil 300 strung with basic, free, prince synthetic gut looking to add some comtrol to my game, but i hate it the Racket has apsolutely no feel, control or power. with such great feedback for the m-fill 300, I am forced to Blame the string any input?

    It could be the strings. I peronally think that the strings alone can make or break the racquet. However I can't complain with Prince Syn Gut but give it a second try with another string. Every player has there preference.

    Why don't you first try matching the weight distribution of your mfil 300 to your aeropro drive. You can match it almost exactly by doing the following:

    Add 3 grams at 10 and 2 (1.5 on each side, center of mass at 22" from butt), plus 8 grams at the butt (center of mass at 0.25" from butt).

    If you do this, your mFil 300 will play a lot like your Aerpro drive (but a little more flexible). You should be able to tell betterif the string is making a difference.
