    May 10, 2020 12:20:22 PM / by Jeff Warren

    The tennis season is well under way here in Canada and what a season it has been. It was  a slow start due to the pandemic but once tennis opened more people than ever are playing.

    2020 has also marked a real renaissance for Dunlop in tennis here in Canada.

    We are very excited to be one of the Canadian retailers selling and promoting Dunlop. They have a great product line and you can learn more about Dunlop's tennis racquets below ...

    Dunlop CX Series Anderson Banner

     

    Dunlop is a leader in tennis technology.

    The Dunlop resurgence started globally in 2016 when the Japanese conglomerate Sumitomo Rubber Industries division, SRI Sports purchased the brand. Sumitomo is a technology driven company that invests in creating products of the highest performance and quality.

    The Dunlop resurgence in Canada started January 1st 2020 when the brand changed distribution here. Like the global company, Dunlop in Canada is focused on growing the brand and telling the story of how impressive their quality and technology truly is.

    The Dunlop tennis racquet line is a shining example of the quality, technology and performance that SRI Sports brings to the Dunlop brand ...

    Dunlop has three primary tennis racquet lines. They are the FX series, CX series and the SX series. Each series has different models in it to suit different skill levels and player preferences.

    The Dunlop FX Series

     

    The Dunlop FX Series of tennis racquet is designed with maximum power and comfort in mind. Dunlop's description of the series is:

    "Can you feel it? That’s power. Pure, unchecked game-winning power. To snatch 12-shot rallies, to launch shots from baseline to baseline, to unleash decisive smash shots. Power that feels more comfortable, more reliable than ever. Fuelled by a new aerodynamic frame shape, a larger sweet spot fused with a consistently smooth and stable hitting experience. Capture power to play like you never played before."

    The technologies in the Dunlop FX series are:

    • PowerBoost Groove
    • PowerBoost Frame Geometry
    • FlexTouch Resin

    The Dunlop SX Series

    The SX series is designed for the player looking for more spin. I love Dunlop's tagline for the series:

    "It's not just about more spin, it's about more in. Welcome to spin redefined."

    Dunlop's technology really shines in the new SX series. They have developed a frame that will provide more spin but do so while also improving forgiveness. With the amount of spin players are hitting with today; there is an increased chance of hitting off centre. Dunlop have improved how the racquet responds to off centre hits which results in more balls going in.

    The technologies in the in the SX series are:

    • SPIN BOOST
    • POWERGRID
    • SONICCORE made with Infinergy
    • V-Energy Shaft II

    Technologies

    PowerBoost Groove

    Balance power and comfort with a new grommet structure.

    Play in comfort with a precision groove engineered into the racket frame. Enlarge the sweet spot thanks to a new grommet structure that increases string movement Hit with more power and more comfort.

    PowerBoost Frame Geometry

    Feel the power with a new frame shape

    Hit harder thanks to a new aerodynamic head shape engineered to pack more power Get a more balanced feel thanks to a sharp, modern-looking shaft. Strike consistent shots thanks to a wider throat design that delivers greater stability. Play with more power and more reliability.

    FlexTouch Resin

    Move and strike the ball with more comfort and power.

    Smooth out your game with a high-elasticity and vibration-damping racket. Play with more power and feel.

    SONICCORE made with Infinergy

    Play harder, cleaner shots, with increased comfort

    This super elastic material dampens impact shock and reduces frame vibrations by up to 37%, resulting in a more comfortable hitting sensation and a reduced chance of injury.

    PowerGrid

    Better control, more power and more spin.

    Power Grid String Tech creates a 30% larger sweet spot, evenly distributing power across the string bed, allowing modern day players to hit the ball towards the top of the racket.

    Box Frame

    Play shots with more power, comfort and control, thanks to a thinner front edge, enabling more frame compression which enhances the sweet spot. This modern aerodynamic frame shape features sharper angles and cuts through the air to hit a faster, cleaner shot.

    Spin Boost Grommets

    YOUR NET JUST GOT LOWER AND YOUR COURT JUST GOT BIGGER.

    Spin Boost technology. A dynamic set of spin-enhancing grommets that work with a dense, control-string pattern. The oblong shaped grommets are located on the 10 main strings through the top section of the racket hoop, they allow more string movement in the direction of the arrows shown on the racket (forward and backward on some strings). Lateral (sideways) in one direction on other strings. This movement helps create ‘bite’ on the ball and generate high mechanical rotation – SPIN.

    Play Harder shots with less errors. Striking the ball at high impact locations on the string bed, gives less string slide motion (compared with low impact locations), less bite on the ball and gives less height and distance on shots. At low impact locations, this gives 46% more string slide motion (compared with high impact locations), more bite on the ball and gives more height and distance on shots. This combines to produce a ball trajectory that is 13% more consistent in terms of height and distance* – resulting in greater accuracy.
