any idea of swingweight???

I posted a query for the specs in the comments forum, so you can stay tuned there for a response from TW themselves. The Dunlop rep said these frames won't be available until April.

I hate you!:)

Several of us from the "Pro's Racquets and Gear" section have been salivating over the potential release of this one for some time. This means that finally, Dunlop is giving us Dunlop 300 lovers a heavier version. I already know that it's the HM, MFil, and Bio. mold. I hit the HM 300G for five years. Any way you could post a pic or two?

Would've been much nicer if they released the NeoMax for the rest of the world. Looking forward to pics:D

Looks exactly the same as the one J. Mac was wielding in the photo, near as I can tell. Yes, I'll see if I can put something up later today when I have a real camera handy.

It looks like the Pacific was no match for your Londons, P1. Do you think this could be the end for them?

OMG, tremendous looking specs (though, clearly that doesn't always add up).

What is he beam width?

I just got a Pacific demo in the mail again today, with the Melbourne, X-325, and IG Prestige MP. But then you do this, and it's all moot. Moot I say! I think that all four of these demos that I have today could be a match for my Londons, as they spec out perfect for me and perform incredibly. But the real issue now is the blinding realization that nothing will match this new Bio. 300, imo. They can call it a Max 200 if they want, but it's a HM, Mfil, Bio 300 mold with some weight. I will preorder without a demo for the first time in my life.

I'm almost positive either 21 or 22, maybe 21.55.

Pics - Please!!! Been waiting a long time for this one...

Fed Kennedy 03-12-2012 11:47 AM

Nice work AO, we needeth pics!

The RA number of 66 seems a little high for a racquet Mac would use. Sometimes the number does not always correlate 1:1 with comfort / softness though.

the dunlop maxply mcenroe racquet had a similar stiffness rating

That's been my experience with recent Dunlop offerings with middling stiffness, such as the 200 Lite. I imagine this one will be just as soft, despite the rating of 66 (which is what's printed on the frame).

Gentlemen, I assure you there will be pics. The good folks at TW are stringing it up for me whilst I take in some live tennis on court 1. Patience!

Then I have to tell you this: have a VERY good day and hope you'll see some great tennis!

You may want to double-check that powerball ticket. You're on a hot streak.

Why not call it a Biomimetic 300G rather than a Biomimetic Max200G?

Mac has used the 300G mold for years, he's almost as well known for that as he is for the Max200G, and it would be more accurate as to where it fits in the range. Sure, they've taken the aesthetic from the Max200G and employed that on the 300-series frame, but I don't think that is expressly a reason to call it a 200 or to use the Max moniker (which is tied, in my opinion, very specifically to the IMF process [obviously used with compression molded frames like the Black Max, but if you use that nomenclature, this racket should still be called a Biomimetic 300Max]).

If I end up getting one or two of these, I'm going to send them to my paint guy and have him re-stencil them to say Biomimetic 300G... Take that Dunlop... Wait that would be stupid and pointlessly expensive... Nevermind...

So you're at Indian Wells? And anyone can get one from the TW tent?

Yes and yes. If anyone else is here and wants to chat me up, just lemme know.

I'm in Illinois, but my parents are in Phoenix. I should really send them over to IW to pick up goodies in the TW tent. It's under 4 hours and they like to drive. Lol.
