Hyperfibre Extreme Line, Dunlop brand racket. Composed 100% of interconnected carbon through the Hyperfibre system, a set of ballistic fibers that intertwine the carbon of the racket structure and a core of Eva PRO TOUCH Gum, a high-density Eva gum. It has an oversize hybrid shape (between diamond and tear) and a smooth surface with matt finish.
When you first pick it up, you get the feeling of a well-finished, solid racket but somewhat heavy. The swing is clearly directed towards the head and you can feel it right away. By placing the overgrips, I recommend 3 minimum, you will be able to optimize the balance in the direction of the handle. You can additionally put lead or tungsten ribbons on the handle under the overgrips to lower a little bit further.
In game its a racket with a hard touch. The carbon structure interwoven into the HYPERFIBRE system, conveys enough stability and a great additional rigidity to the racket. It´s got a dry, hard stroke. Presents a medium-short sweet spot. I think the oversize hybrid model contributes to the increase of the optimal impact point, in any way tends to short. In terms of power we can say that it impresses a lot, especially in the smash. There’s a short output. In the net the trays need a correct technique and a well-finished blow to reach the desired depth. The control is not it´s strong point due to the reduced sweet spot and swing of the racket. At the back of the court the lobs, come out short when the correct termination of the strokle is not performed.
The weight tested was 363gr.
The surface is smooth with matt finish.
In sound terms it is a racket that has an average sound and with a medium timbre.
The safety cord is simple. As I’ve always said, I always prefer the adjustable cord.
In terms of durability, it seems to be a solid and well-built racket which leads to wanting that can have a long lifespan when well estimated.
- Excellent power
- Safety Cord Not adjustable
- Very short output
- Sweet Spot Short
In conclusion, this is a racket for advanced level players that prefer an aggressive game. It counts with a hard hit and a very short output. In the defensive phase the lack of output and little handling. You need a correct stroke to reach the desired depth. On the net is safe and stable in the tray, volley and has excellent power in the smash. You can easily draw by 3, and especially by 4 or bring the ball back. I felt some vibration in the arm and strain on the tendons due to the high swing. I think the fully interwoven carbon structure gives it additional rigidity. VIBROPODS technology helps to minimize this effect. The finishes are good, the look is very attractive. It is a high quality racket, which in my opinion serves exclusively left-wing players who like rackets with extreme power. I do not advise for people with elbow problems, but if you want to have in your hands this extreme power I strongly advise to put lead or tungsten tape under the various overgrips. An interesting choice in terms of quality/price.
