Looks even more interesting....

Great review from these skilled play testers! I am curious as to how this frame compares to the current Bio 300T in overall power level and is it as fast through the air? Play testers noted that it plays crisper than the current version and that it was more stable in stock form which would seem to come from the new frame design and updated materials but this new model also looks to have a slightly higher static weight? Thanks!!

Very nice review Jason but I have a quickie for you or any of the TW people that can answer this. In the thread "New Dunlop line???" someone posted a picture of an F300 Tour Classic. So I just wanted to know when can we expect that frame? http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showp...&postcount=113

I heard "modern feel" several times. What does it exactly mean? Not too flexy, not too heavy, not too HL?

It probably means hollow, pingy, stiff....?

The model numbers Dunlop use are so confusing. F3.0, M3.0, S3.0 - how is anyone going to distinguish between those? At least with 100, 200, 300 etc, you can guess that one's at the top of player range grading downwards.

F = fast
M = medium
S = slow

for swing speed, and by extrapolation racket power level

Yet, the reviews indicate that F has the most power...

Power varies with swingweight so if you can swing a heavier racquet fast then that racquet will have more power.

The review didn't look so good: pinging and small sweet spot; other aspects look good, but I'm looking looking ahead to the new Blade and Steam models.

does pinging have to do with new material they put in ? hope it doens't mean more bad vibrations ?

Exactly. Just like a lot of Babolats.

No. S has most power.

Which is the review you have seen? Small sweet spot? Maybe the older 300 tour, not this one.

As big as any other 98" 18x20 racquet

Does anyone else think that the new Dunlop frames BM 3.0 frames are shaped like the Wilson Blade 98s? (wider throat and rounder head face)
