Anyone using a Dunlop MW 200g 90 ?

Yes, I've used it on and off for the last 6 years. I am currently down to one, as I am transitioning back to the PC600 (again).

I have used the Dunlop Tour Revelation MP (Prestige red colour) and really liked it.

I would be very interested in trying out the Dunlop MW 200g 90 but where can I get one to try in England?? :cry:

I would be interested to try the MW 90 - I've used the MW 200g 95 for several years now - it was my main racquet for most of that time. One of my all time favourites.

It would be perfect if it weren't for the closed string patter. 18x20 makes it too difficult to generate spin IMHO. I would have preferred 16x18.

18x20 in a 90 sq inch racquet is crazy if you ask me. I've got a Ti-70 which is also 18x20 in an 88 sq inch racquet. Way too difficult to generate spin.

Most of the top pros shy away from using overly closed string patterns (i.e. 18x20). I think there is a good reason for that.

As for racquet size, I think 90 sq inches is nigh on perfect.
 
I'd be curious to try one too.

Following from the replies above, can you explain how you decide on string patterns for frames - not only the choice of 16x18 vs 18x20 vs etc etc but also the positioning of the strings within the head. As an example I have a Wilson HPS 6.1 and a HPS 6.0 Tour, both 16x18 but the locations of the crosses vary enormously from one to the other.

that's interesting finch, can you give some details on how they're different? which has the denser string pattern in the middle?
 
I don't have them in front of me but the lowest cross is way higher on the 6.0 than the 6.1. I think it has 6 strings below the PWS, 4 on the PWS and 8 above where the 6.1 is 7,4 and 7.

I think the 6.1 is slightly less dense in the middle of the hoop.
