New Dunlop racquets on the way - SX Spin Series

lol...'Coming soon 01.12.19'

me: Wait...Hasn't January 12th, 2019 come & gone? Don't they mean 01.12.20?

... thinks about it...

me: (face-palm) oh, December 1st, 2019! Dammit! Why can't we all list dates the same?
It's an American way to write month/day/year. And Dunlop is not from the US, so it's December the first.

The rest of the world uses the day/month/year format. Much like the US still uses "standard" or the king's measurement while the rest of the world uses metric. So we'll see the new Dunlop on December 1st.

@Notorious_Junkballer and @Tommy Haas, yes, I'm aware the 'we' (the US) do dates (as well as times) differently, and that was kinda my point: Why can't 'we' (e.g., the US) do things consistently w/ everyone else.

In other words...the 'lol' was directed at myself for assuming it would be written as month/day/year.

On the unit of measure, there are only 3 countries that use SAE measurements: Liberia, Myanmar, and the US. Something tells me that's an exclusive group 'we' really don't want to be in...

Looks like a competitor to g360 extreme series

It's not that standardized everywhere else either. The Swedes, for example, use year-month-day while their neighboring countries go with day-month-year. Though when it's only about days and months, they turn them around for some reason and write day-month. :)

This should be a fun release to keep an eye out for. My first two real racquets were Dunlops so I've always had a soft spot for them, can't wait to see how these play

It will be hard to top the current revo 3.0..
It's a superb racket with great feel and playability.. only thing wrong with it it doesn't have the 2 stripes or a W painted on it..
legit question: why do the good Dunlop frames have such hideous paint jobs? Would’ve been interested in the 3.0 but it’s a turrible color. I know we shouldn’t care about colors of rackets, but that thing is ugly.

The latest CX 200/400 series with its red and black coloring looks nice to me. But their predecessors, the CX 2.0 line, looked pretty messy.

At least it doesn't look like anything else....and the best thing is it doesn't chip just by looking at it like some do..

Looks like there is a Tour 310g version. I loved the Bio 400 Tour from years ago, this could be a long-awaited update

hi, I have always used dunlop after a long stop I have taken with new models dunlop I own both the cx 400 and the revo CV 3.0. I read the RA will be 64 of these interesting rackets, this series should take the place of the CV series. I'm curious how much better they will be than the revo CV 3.0 despite the lower 64 ra. They wait too long for the exit.

I hope they make a 24 beam that's not in a 100 head size and not super high or low flex. *fingers crossed*

They should just release the Yonex knock-off made for Wang. Then at least one of their pros would use a racquet from their actual line up. :-D

Certainly I try it or buy one the doubt is the choice of the weight 300gr or 285gr. Since I understood the strings can only move in certain directions in off-center hits. This is an innovation that can help you have more control in off-center hits than just more spin. I'm not a nadal player because I use older school grips.

I have been looking at the CV Revo 3.0 that I really wanted to buy.....but found it way too ugly to buy it. So, I have been waiting for an update. Just reading about this new SX racquet with "spin technology", with enlarged grommets etc to make the strings move more.......Does not convince me at all. Maybe I am wrong, but having tried the Pure Aero a few times, to me it was way too much a rocket launcher. I had to get perfect spin every time to keep the ball in. And stringing over 25 kg (+55 pounds) is not the best solution to me.

I don´t really understand why racquet companies mess too muich with a racquet that was getting great reviews from real users as well as companies such as Tennis Warehouse. They should just have updated the Sonic Core material and updated the color along with some minor things.

Or perhaps the new SX racquet ends up playing better. I have my doubts though.

I found these two websites with some info about the new SX racquet line:

1. https://www.teneefy.com/en/dunlop-srixon-sx-300-test/

2. https://tennistaste.com/dunlop-serie-racchette-sx-2019 (need to choose "English" as otherwise the site is in Italian)

At the least there is some info in there that I hadn't seen before. Still sceptical about these "spin boost technology". Sounds silly when even mentioning "grommets" in the same phrase as technology. But, as always, racquet brands must continuously come up with buzz words for selling more.....

Yep, just like the Strikes are too white
