Video of me demoing new Dunlop M 3.0
 
http://youtu.be/HQs5jHgWXWM

very nice frame. Great upgrade from the BioM 3.0 IMO.

if you guys want to give me some pointers or comments on my technique,
please do so on this thread in the tips/instruction section...

The new M 3.0 is a bit more powerful than prior models and feels crisper. The sweetspot feels good when you nail it and you know it when you miss. Great control and you can swing away without fear if hitting long. Its got a nice balance of control and power. Firmer feeling than past models as well.
Good touch and feel on volleys and dropers. Racquet seems heavy enough stock but would benefit from a little added lead tape. I also tried the F 3.0, but definitely preferred the M due to it's livelier feel and more open pattern. Not sure why TW gave the M such mediocre reviews? If you are interested in this frame definitely check it out yourself. The TW review doesn't do it justice IMO.

Nice agility dog....

Very nice strokes, nothing to advise as you are much better than me, :) Do you think the "Tour" version would play better?

I always thought you were an up and coming junior heading up the ranks.

You need to relax everything, it seems that you are forcing your body to hit the shots.

Very robot like. But some guys are just like that. Eg. David ferrer.


Otherwise, very clean. But if you can relax before, during and after each stroke. It will look so more natural.

Is that a PGA Superstore? Dunlop Demo Days? :)

If you were in balance throughout your motion, it might help you relax. You seem to be catching yourself at the end of a lot of your strokes.

pretty much all arm. nothing is "chained" or fluid and foot work/prep awful

You seem like you drag yourself into your shot a lot. You seem slow and a little overly forceful when you really don't need to be to get the same out of your shot. To me it's just wasted movement and takes time away from what you could be doing moreso which is moving your feet.

My main word of advice is to just play more natural. You look like the tin man from wizard of oz the way you plant yourself after your swing and your swing is labored and overly exaggerated.

Loosen up your body, loosen up your swing and just try to play more freely. I can't imagine you playing sets and having someone run you around while you hit like that. It would seem like you would behind in the point a lot.

In the video, it seems like you're really self conscious of the way that you want people to perceive the way you hit.

When you play really good players, you'll find out quickly that competing against them has a lot to do with movement, getting to the ball and I can't imagine you being in a good position to play the next ball if you're taking so much time completing one stroke.

Lose your structure or whatever, whoever taught you to hit like that and just play freely and naturally.

You're a tennis player, not a lumberjack. Stop playing like one.

disagree that david ferrer is robot like.

if i saw a player on a tennis court moving and hitting the ball like ferrer, i would realize that he is a very accomplished player.

the rest of your input as well as all the other advice is spot on. OP needs to relax and swing smoother. more human racquet and less graphite racquet. swallow the magic pill.

I like the golf swing backhand. Looks kinda cool.

Dgdavid 11-16-2012 03:06 PM

I agree. I need to work on staying on balance and trying to be more fluid and less stiff.

tistrapukcipeht 11-16-2012 04:10 PM

People bashing Jack for nothing, unbelievable.

I think He was working on his strikes only, nothing else, that is exactly why you get a ball machine to work on it, over and over and over again, once He has it down, watches the ball around the string bed, doesn't move his head after hitting the ball He will move on.

But to be fair I don't see JackB1 talking that He is a big thing, like a few others do, I'd like to see some other guy here in this thread post a video of how good he is, after so much rant and anger in most of his posts.

Keep it up Jack, to be honest I think your mechanics are as good or better than most play testers of TW, excluding Andy/ Brittany/ Sihoban.

Ferrer still looks very mechanical, robot like. Sorry, that's how I see it.

I didn't say he was not a good hitter

Yes! Agree. :)

Hey Jack. Nice to put a face to the name. So may freaking posers here! Ugh. I think the long delay between shots is what frustrated watchers. Nothing much you can do but stand there and wait.
