Paint the lines with new Dunlops

November 4, 2016

GREENVILLE, SC – Dunlop announces the introduction of its new Precision line of racquets, aimed at intermediate to advanced players. To deliver unprecedented levels of control, the four new frames mark a return to some of the performance characteristics that defined Dunlop for many decades: thinner beams, slightly heavier, and control-oriented. However, the Precision racquets also take advantage of modern frame geometry and Dunlop’s most powerful new technologies, including the SR-X handle system and parallel stringing, giving players tremendous feel and forgiveness.


“For the past few years, we’ve focused on delivering the most powerful and spin friendly racquets ever for Dunlop,” said Kai Nitsche, V.P. and General Manager for Dunlop Sports Group Americas. “iDapt did that in an unprecedented way; it introduced the first truly customizable racquets to the market. Earlier this year, we introduced the Force racquets, which gave players huge amounts of power, but with a fixed handle system. We’ve engineered our new Precision line to give players more control than ever, via thinner beams, added weight and our latest technologies.”

Advanced players will appreciate the specs and look of the the new Precision 98 Tour. At 11.7oz strung and 4 points headlight, this frame is extremely easy to maneuver and perfectly suited to customize by adding weight. It has an 18×20 string pattern and an RA of 67. It features a black on black cosmetic.

Each of the new Precision racquets uses Dunlop’s new SR-X handle system, giving them an entirely unique feel. Glass fiber rods slotted into precision channels inside the handle help dissipate vibration, resulting in a softer feel on your hands when striking the ball. To enhance racquet control and stability, the size of the flare at the base of the handle has been increased by 30%.

Dunlop introduced parallel stringing in its iDapt line of racquets, and the new Precision frames also employ this technique of grommet hole placement. With parallel stringing the grommets are realigned to be directly parallel across from one another. This small change results in greater string movement, which translates into a wider sweet spot, helping with off center hits.
