The CX 400 Tour from Dunlop is suitable for a wide variety of experienced players from intermediates to advanced players looking for a modern control-oriented racquet that fuses feel with power, control and spin.
The headsize at 100 square inches provides a blend of control and power with a forgiving feel. Coupled with the headsize, the open string pattern has a livey feel with easier access to spin. The weight being slightly heavier than average at 10.6 ounces (unstrung) brings added swingweight for increased power potential and bigger return of serves. Its head-light balance (unstrung) increases your ability to move the frame quickly, an important factor in generating power as well as being conducive to fast movements at the net for game-changing volleys. The beam thickness brings a little more punch and stiffness than the thinner CX 200 series thereby providing easier power in your game requiring less effort for depth in your shot, more common in the 100 square inch racquets of the modern era.
Enhancing the above physical characteristics of the frame are the core technologies Dunlop has implemented into the materials that make up the racquet. Flex Booster enhances feel, increases flex and reduces vibration. Sonic Core reduces impact shock and frame vibrations. Power Grid String Tech optimizes the string layout for a larger than usual sweet spot with enhanced spin potential.
Combined with the core technologies, this racquet does it all with a more traditional frame-feel infused with modern lively and spin-friendly improvements. This racquet should prove quite popular among Dunlop's racquets due to the sheer versatility that would make many players happy with its overall performance.
