Dunlop Biomimetic 300 Tour
 
I have 2 of these just arrived
but they seem to be different, the cosmetics are slightly different
one also says stiffness 63 the other stiffness 64
just curious as to why they are different if anyone has any clues,
i have attached some pictures.

that is really odd. the one that is all red in the photos is the one that is 64 and the one with the orange color mixed with red is the 63. i cannot explain this except to tell you that i have 8 300 tours and they are all 64 with the red color scheme. they were purchased over different periods the last 2 years

Hi
thanks for the reply, actually the one with all Red is 63 stiffness

I bought a used one from TW.
It says 64 RA, but is more orangish like yours.
maybe faded?

toucano 02-22-2013 06:15 AM

not faded from what i can tell.
Balance seems to be different than the other too
the Red (without orange) very head heavy and no lead under the head guard.

zapvor 02-22-2013 07:32 AM

maybe they sent you a pro stock by mistake;)

toucano 02-22-2013 09:23 AM

not sure about that, I am never that lucky haha

I have the red/orange one with RA64. I've never seen one with RA63, very strange indeed:confused:

LeeD 02-22-2013 02:48 PM

Mine also is the red/orange 64.

toucano 02-25-2013 01:46 AM

How would i know if its a pro stock dunlop ?

The Red one (RA 63) with Leather grip weighs 307g strung Balance 34cm
The Red Orange (RA 64) with leather grip strung weighs 336g strung Balance 33cm but does have some lead under the bumper not sure how much .
So i am curious as to why they are so different
If anyone can shed some light please

robbo1970 02-25-2013 03:30 AM

Strange difference.

I can understand the leather making it weigh about 330ish, but with leather and only 307g seems off.

My non-Tour version Bio300 with leather grip weighs 314g. That does sound like one of those rackets is a bit of a strange anomoly

I had one Bio 300Tour, RA:64. Does the one with RA:63 have the same paint type like the regular RA 64 ? - That kind of "aeroskin" ?

That's very strange, lead on top and the weight and balance doesn't match at all.

toucano 02-25-2013 04:01 AM

Yes they both have the Aeroskin design.
they came from a UK top junior, who is now sponsored by Dunlop
thats what makes me think one of them is a pro stock

Can you measure weight, balance, and swingweight, strung+overgrip, for both rackets ?

toucano 02-25-2013 12:47 PM

The red one weighs 320g with Volk leather and vs over grip
I have put approx 25g silicon in the handle and the Balance is 32.5
Unsure of the swing weight, the red/orange weighs 340g with dunlop leather and vs over grip, it has lead under the head guard but not sure how much did not want to remove the head guard yet. The balance point is 32 cm, don't know how to measure sing weight

robbo1970 02-26-2013 04:08 AM

The 320g with leather seems light for a Tour.

The 340g sounds about right. Dunlop leather is heavy and with lead I can see it getting up to 340g.

Its a bit intriguing though. Are you able to get in touch with the person you bought them from? They might have some answers.

toucano 02-26-2013 05:25 AM

yes i tried but he was given the rackets so he does not have any more info, the junior who was using them is now using the dunlop pro stocks. which makes me think this one is, just trying to find a way to confirm it. from what i have read the Dunlop pro stock come headheavy and light as a hairpin. when i can finally get out to the courts will give them both a test run.

robbo1970 02-26-2013 01:54 PM

Sounds like it may be pro stock, designed to be customised. A good platform to spec a racket to your own requirements.

toucano 02-28-2013 12:04 AM

yes seems to be.
i have it matched to the retail one so when i get to the courts will see if i can feel a difference.
