    Quality control is great. My dunlop 500Tours are the exact same weight. All three are 11.5 strung. No grip problems at all. I've had them since they came out on the market. Very high quality in my opinion. I highly recommend any Dunlop product.

    I love the way my mFil 300's play, but the specs are all over the place. I bought 3- differed in weight by more than 1/10 oz & also in balance. Played around with lead, but gave 1 away because I couldn't get it to work(heavier & more head heavy). A friend gave me a 4th, but didn't like the 3/8 grip. Just recently bought a new one at Sports Authority for $59- balance is fine but it is heavier than the others.
    I had to go back & add lead to my other 2 to get them all close. They are fine now, but have taken a lot of tinkering to get to that point.
    I doubt that I will but Dunlop when it is time to get new racquets

    So not true... I'd give them an 8 and Wilson a 5. Dunlop has great products, and they are nowhere near as bad as Wilson products...

    I've played with them and they have great control and the strings don't pop as easily if you have them strung to the tightest tension.

    It is true for the stuff ive used...10 dunlop mfil 200s which all had very different weights and SWs...some were off by at least 15 grams. Also on 8 of them the butt caps made a very annoying noise during play becuase they were so loose.

    2 Aerogel 300's which played like different rackets..again same problem with the handles.

    1 Aerogel 100 with paint that wouldnt stay on..

    Sorry...

    I just checked the weight of my 4 Dunlops... 2 are leaded up with 6 grams, and they are the lightest at 11.8 and 11.9 ounces. The other 2 are 11.9 and 12.0 ounces respectively. Saying that, I'd rate it about a ~5. (Only because I've seen others that are off by a mile)

    IMO, the worst is Wilson, little better Dunlop, Head. The best: Vantage, Fisher, Yonex.
