    What are people thoughts on the Dunlop bio 200 lite?
    Anything will help. Also is it a good switch from the Fed racket to this racket?

    It's mid 11 oz, moderately soft, mid+, another of the endless options.
    If it's right for you, it's right.
    Sometimes, I wished my 200's were weighted like my LMRads, but then again, I think that is nitpicking.

    I have not hit with the 200 Lite yet but I always felt that spec-wise, it is quite unique... in that it is a flexible (57 rating) racquet that is under 12oz (mid-11oz).

    Which other racquets would you say are similar?

    I"m not much of a racket fiddler.
    My LM RadMids are 11.4 oz, about the same as 200Lites. BUT, the head is much much much stiffer, almost jarringly stiff, compared to the soft shaft.

    I demo'd it once. Nice solid, crisp feel like other Dunlops I've tried. Good flex, and enjoyed the open pattern. And many may disagree, but I think the paint job/colors are great!

    It's not really a 57 flex, TW even admitted the mistake in the "TW Comments/Feedback" section a while back, but it was never fixed.

    I have one BM 200L
    thougt it was a nice replecement of my kprotours. It was't. I prever the KPT'S. BUT: you the BM 200L is very customable (leather grip, lead, etc) so if customizing is ur thing u can easily make it something that works for u

    Yep, I was blaming strings and what not for my flare up tennis elbow and it was that damn racket. I even put full bed of natural gut with no success. Sold them right away. Very Very stiff racket, TW put a flex of 58 on their website, but in reality is more like a 68. :shock:
