    Talk to TW, maybe the new 300 series grommets fit?

    for you mfil 300 users -- are the more recent versions of the 300 better? more comfortable?

    Thread resurrection!

    New Mfil owner (used obviously) elbow sufferer, love it apart from the misshits, currently trying 8 grams at 3 & 9, serves great but still suffering returning hard serves. Just strung with Solinco Barb wire as find it hard to generate topspin...struggling up to now...anybody else tried Barb Wire with this racket?

    What are you struggling with? Ball speed? Placement of your return? The serve overpowering your racket? Late to the ball? Not enough control to hit the spin you want?
    While I don't use an Mfil 300, I do have one Bio300T and 2 4DAero300's that are my current rackets. STBite 16 at 47 lbs., no problems.

    Hi Lee,

    Power serves overpowering the racket mainly, doesnt happen when I play with my Biomimetic 200 Tour

    Makes sense, but using a lighter SW racket, you need to add more forward movement, more forceful swing, to the incoming serve. Not tons more, just enough to get back the loss of depth you acquired with the switch to a lighter SW racket.

    Oh no!

    I felt unhappy with my LMInstinct so I picked up the M-Fil for a bit (shouldn't do that, been faithfully using just one racquet for a long time now) and aside from the feel of the old grip, it was a sweet hit. My serve was almost immediately better and I found more consistency. Only issue was the BH block or slice but I was avoiding that and playing well.

    Snapped the strings on a serve and that was the end. Was broken immediately and couldn't quite reel my opponent in. He commented on my play using the M-Fil 300 as being pretty steady.

    Now I have to re-string her and play her again; eek!

    Ha! I still find this to be the best all around racquet for me. It's good to know there is at least one other person still swinging one.

    I still have one new one in the wrapper.

    I demoed a couple of the new offerings from Dunlop and to me it seems they have lost their way or maybe I'm just stuck in a time warp lol
