James Blake's new Dunlop

Anyone know what this new orange racquet is going to be? New line from Dunlop? Surely his trusty old frame, but no longer blacked out and now has the Dunlop stencil.

Nice to see Dunlop give him frames again, c'mon Babolat your turn to give Roddick some new frames now. It feels wrong to see him with a blacked out racket after so much of their success was because of him.

Could be the Srixon factor, wanting to get the Dunlop brand out there again, bit by bit.

Too bad they lost Mac... :p
For the moment...We'll see if the new management does something smart and get Mac back. They would probably have to make a deal with his academy as well which I believe Head did. Would be a good move on their part in my opinion.

Saw Chang and Blake play last night. Both looked very good. Didn't know Chang switched from Babolat. He came out with a Srixon bag and a racquet with Dunlop stencil.

James Blake is using the new Dunlop Srixon Revo CX or at least that's what his paint job wants us to think. There's a new Dunlop commercial featuring James that's been airing on The Tennis Channel. He actually gives a testimonial about switching to the new Srixon from his previous racquet that's he's been using for the past ten years.

Wow, does this thing swing like a bat. Definitely a massive swingweight, favors a flat game. Don't have a way to measure the swingweight till next week.

Also no PJ, seems to be the regular mold with different specs. No lead under bumper so different starting specs than store model on this one obviously

Well, RA = 69 (unstrung) and it's clearly one of their newer molds. It probably is "the POS that they sell" aka Revo CX 2.0 (with 18x20 drill pattern), or at least similar.
It’s not anything that they are selling. It’s the old 300 Tour mold I can’t remember code with a new grommet channel with Blake’s layup.

Get your eyes checked man. The bridge is also a different shape than the old 300 mold. Wider on inside of hoop than outside.
The label from the Keen Tech factory shows RA = 69, that's WAAAY stiffer than his old layup.
