Dunlop F5T.....

Hi..
In a fit of total madness, it's raining outside, I bought a ton of windsurf gear last week, I got a F5T stock stringing around 55 lbs.
My favs in my rotation are Aero500's weighted to 11.5 oz and 325 SW's. Other favs are Prince03SharkOS and Red0s, all for their serving prowess and easy power.
Less favored, but part of normal rotation, are 4DAero300's and Bio300T's, and MGRadOS.
I had PD envy, hoping to improve my flat serves one mph.
We'll see, by Friday afternoon, next chance for some decent tennis.
Yes, this is a rave from someone gone mad.

Your madness is already legendary my friend.

That said, based upon what you seem to like with your racquets, I think the F5T could be a good fit for you.

Got 4 more playing days on the F5T, stock strings SILK around 55 lbs.
I have 3 Aero500's weighted to 11+ oz and 325 SW's.
Added a leather grip over the stock wimpy white Dunlop grip.
Much more precision than the Aero500's, due to it being 4 pts stiffer.
With stock strings, not much more potential power, but more precise ball placement for sure.
Beam is much like APD's, triangular, and rounder on the outside, so maybe more aerodynamic, but I haven't hit a round of flat serves with it yet. Seems very good at easy power.
Should break the strings very soon, so STBite16 at 35 lbs. will go in.

Silk at 55 is like a board, at least it was on my 300.

I think the stock weight of the F5T will be right in your wheelhouse.

Thanks...
I'll restring with STBite16 next week or so, since I only use that racket once every other playing day, still going through the rotations of 7 different rackets right now.
Prolly 35 lbs., since I use 35 on one of my Aero500's that has one less string.

I had Pro Line II 1.15 on mine @ 50/48 and that is too boardy for me, although the control is quite good for this powerful a racquet, especially on returns. I definitely would not recommed stringing it any higher than about 45.
