Replacement for Dunlop Biomemetic 200 Tour

My favorite current frame; but is there anything currently made that is similar? It seems that frames have gotten lighter, with more 16x19 at least patterns, and stiffer, and larger. The 200 tour is only available in beat up old versions on ****, if even that.

Why do you want to replace with smth currently made? You can find previous versions you know where. I consider 4D Aerogel 200 Tour the best from this series.

Can you explain more about why the Aerogel is better? More flex?
I can't say it's more flex. Actually i don't like flex racquets, i have many old Dunlops of 200 and 300 series and this one (4D Aerogel) is the most penetrating stick for me.
Some people think that this series was the last quality Dunlop racquets, may be Bio line also, don't know.
 
The Bio 200 Tour though is much higher swingweight than the CX Tour; anyone who has tried both, are the swingweights nearly the same on the 4d 200 tour and the Biomemetic?
 
I played with the 4D 200 Tour, and served the heaviest, beastliest serves ever. I truly had people way back behind the baseline. Incredible frame from the baseline but tougher for me on short court put-aways.
Anyway, great stick. Mine were used and out of spec with each other - couldn't get them matched to my satisfaction, and went to the Pure drive Roddick + for a few years.
I would go back to the 4D 200 Tour, though. I don't remember much about how stiff/flexy the hoop/throat was, just that they were smooth frames.

Smooth is a good description. The flex rating is pretty low but the hoop does not flop around like some frames do. I play PDR+s as well, and it is pretty easy to go back and forth between them, even though they look vastly different on paper.
