Dunlop Srixon - foam filled?

Ok, thanks.

Did they talk anything about the arm-friendliness? I feel that the repulsion effect will absorb the shocks and increase the arm-friendliness. Definitely worth looking if they fall around or below the 65 RA.
There is a technology called Sonic Core VG that dampens vibration (About 30% in reduction). It's available in some of the Srixon rackets such as the CZ series.

james Blake is using this. does this mean this is super low powered ?? I wonder if it is same power as pure aero or pure drive ?

Has anyone here actually hit with the 61RA Tour 18x20 version? With all the tech and silicone in the handle, I'm sure it feels soft, but what I'm looking for is actual frame flex, specifically at the throat. I'm looking for real world feedback.

I have a Prince TT 100P which has a 62RA, but due to then Textreme at the throat, it doesn't really feel flexible even though it's supposed to resist twisting and allow bending. I also had a Dunlop HM200G which had a 61RA and it felt noticeably stiffer than the 60RA MW200G.

The ProKennex Heritage Redondo Type C 98 MP has a 57RA and everyone says it really doesn't play like it has a 57RA. The Prince racquets with EXO3 ports have even lower RA's, but they're flexible in the hoop. The RA can be misleading at times.

Yeah the 98 and strung with diadem SP @49. I will add a wilson shock shield grip to add weight to the handle and somewhere around 4 or 5gms to the head for added stability and SW
I actually have the previous model love the racket. Super solid

Word. Looks like they ran out of money for a graphics designer after thinking of all of the "new" technologies haha
It's like exactly opposite principle that @PeterFig sold to Wilson. While I am not a fan of matte and some of the color choices he made I must say he is correct in urging Wilson to do away with technologies decal pj and did a good job with Wilson

It just looks exactly like two totally different paintjobs stacked on top of each other. Just so weird. What matters is how it hits, but yeah, an eyesore.

I've hit with previous version in stock form for a while. Feels like pt57e with comfort level of pt57a. Good control and unique beam geometry. Grip runs a size larger like yonex. Anderson uses a different layup and is extended.

Is his name pronounced like Chucky or cookie? i.e. short or long 'U'?
Pronounced according to spelling using Japanese syllables. Fu = the first half of food without holding full o sound length like in food.
Next double up on the k and transition to say ki similar to key. What you will have now is Fok key

can you post a pics of the handle: it's classic PU hard foam or pallets?
The shape is similar to dunlop handle?
thanks.

Found that video too; at 1:40; it's all in Japanese though! Could anyone just give the gist of the reviews in English?
i think they stressed it's not "sponge" material but much denser, resilient material (silicon i think).

it's also interesting it's only half filled to the outside layer.

He is stressing the characteristics of Sonic Core where the material returns energy to the ball compared to a sponge material. The sponge absorbs and dissipates the energy. He does not mention the material being denser. He said it may be hard to see, but the material (Sonic Core) has properties that rebounds well and is flexible.

There is no mention about the density of the material. Repulsion is more appropriate than resilient in this case "hanpatsu ga aru".

I've never put much stock in all the "technologies" that companies come out with and market. However, I'm sure there are a few out there that actually make somewhat of a difference. I just hope this racquet has the solid feel I'm looking for. Been trying several things over the last 2 years since I finally put my original 200gs down. I pre-ordered this the day it came up on TW. We will see. :)

Are you playing with the Prince Textreme Tour 95?

I have tried to replace my mw200g for some time now and I have not had any success. I have a TC97 18x20 on the way. Ill be awaiting your review of this one.

yeah nothing quite like the 200g

i do like the angell tc95 ra63 a lot with low tension poly but i did modernize my strokes... it is the best stick ive ever used for my game but nothing destroys the ball like the 200g... flat forehands omg
 
I had my first session with the TC97 and for me, it's a good stick to transition from the mw200g. The TC95 just had too much boom boom pow. Could not control it without that sweeping spin. I can hit flat snipers similar to the mw. A year ago, Paul told me the 97 would probably suit me better but I didn't listen and got the 95 just because the mw was the same size. Trust me and paul, tc 97 is the Angell to get if you are looking for the modern 200g replacement.

likely true... I hit with a lot of spin on backhands and I modernized my forehand 4-6 years ago going from eastern to semiwestern forehands. I also hit heavy topspin ant twist serves as a second serve. That said my main hitting partner is also an ex 200g user and he's using the TC100. That said a MW200g is different from the 200g and yeah a tc97 shares a lot more in common with the mw200g (including the fact that the same designer is responsible).

Dunlop Srixon Revo CX 2.0 Tour 18x20 is a great frame. I demoed CX 2.0 Tour strung with Dunlop Silk at high 50 lbs and enjoyed with it for roughly 3 hours-hitting. I was surprised at a silky buttery feeling on impact and better topspin potential compared to IG Prestige MP and Ultra Tour, respectively. One thing I found is that the demoed racket is unstrung 306g that is 9g underweight based on average 315g. Despite that, it felt very solid. Such a feeling might come from Sonic Core Technology utilizing urethane and silicone according to Dunlop. I think TW review is on the spot and I would like to recommend this great stick to tennis player looking for a control-oriented well-balanced racket with still classic feeling and advanced technology as well.
