filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

I recently play-tested another of the new “Biomimetic” racquets (200 Plus) and now it's time for the 300 playtest. If you haven't read my 200 Plus review, here is a synopsis of the brand-new technology that Dunlop is offering. Technology and engineering which is inspired by “Nature”! There are three unique features of a Biomimetic racquet: “AeroSkin”—a coating on the hoop—little raised bumps almost all-around (kinda feels like a basketball). Dunlop says these assist the racquet to travel faster through…

Prince EXO3 Tour 100 - 18x20 Tennis Racquet Review

June 2nd, 2011 by Graham Theriault

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
- An attractive paint job with nice shiny metallic orange EXO grommets.  Also a thin beam (21mm) and solid weight yet whippy and maneuverable. I couldn't wait to hit with the Tour 100, the headsize, 100 sq inches, and large round sweet spot looked like it would provide a fun demo ahead.  I wasn't disappointed.

GROUNDSTROKES:
- The Tour 100 18x20 felt consistent and solid on forehands and backhands especially.  It was very spin friendly and had less depth on shots then it sibling the 16x18 providing more margin on my shot, which I appreciated.  It oozed with confidence thanks to the large strike zone on this thing.  And it perfected top spin forehands and hard sliced backhands equally well which really impressed me and flat out made my wife want to switch her regular…

Prince EXO3 Tour 100 - 16x18 Tennis Racquet Review

May 30th, 2011 by Graham Theriault

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
- A nice thin beam and flashy paint scheme looked inviting when I first saw it.  I was excited and very intrigued to see how this racquet performed.  It looked like it had a huge sweet spot, which it did and had a good solid weight to it.

GROUNDSTROKES:
- It took me a little while to dial in my forehand with the  Tour 100 16x18,  Immediately I felt the racket had much more power then I am used too in my regular racquet.  I adjusted and hit with about 75-85% of the normal power I would use and quickly realized that this racket was great for depth shots and spin.  At 11.6 oz strung it is a nice solid baseliner's racquet.  The sweet spot is large and “punchy” as I have found similar to many other Prince racquets with the EXO grommet system.  My backhands felt accurate and the thin beam was comfortable to load-up with in preparation for the shot.  I did notice that the Tour 100 was not nearly as stiff (rated 52) as I am used to and sometimes felt the “wobbling-lance” sensation after ...

May 20th, 2011 by Graham Theriault

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
- a thin beam (20 mm), attractive paint scheme, somewhat weighty racquet with slick dimples on the frame called Aeroskin, designed to reduce drag upon swinging.   Also a 100 sq inch slightly rectangular head.  At 11.5 oz it isn't overly heavy but it feels solid and meaty in your hands.  Let's put it this way, after feeling it in my hands and then reading the specs, I expected it to way more than it did.  And it's much lighter than it's brother the Biometric 200, it reports in at 11.9 oz and 95 square inches.

GROUNDSTROKES:
- Hitting with the Biometric 200 Plus was tricky at times.  It was always solid but often felt “dead” to me.  It's response sometimes seemed numb and even sounded muffled upon hits.  Perhaps it was the unique carbon technology Dunlop is famous for and I hadn't yet gotten used to it's extreme dampening characteristics.  It took some

Babolat Pure Storm LTD GT Tennis Racquet Review

May 18th, 2011 by Graham Theriault

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

-  This is a beautiful player’s frame.  Right away I noticed the thin 19 mm beam, egg-shaped small head size (95 sq inches), supple leather grip and overall appealing paint job.  It felt somewhat heavy yet swinging it felt quick and responsive.

GROUNDSTROKES:

-  Upon hitting with the Pure Storm Ltd, I noticed the precision it displayed on forehand shots.  Easy access to spin yet could really perform flat shots without a hiccup.  The maneuverability  of this racquet shined on the backhand as well.  It weighs in at 11.9 oz and has a relatively quick swing weight (rated at 305) and is rated at 12 pts head-light which gives the neck of the frame a real meaty feel to it.  This racquet had exceptional plow-through characteristics and although the stiffness is…
