Racket Review: Dunlop Biomimetic F4.0 Tour
Originally published on 14/04/14
Evolution is the name of the game in Dunlop’s second round of Biomimetic frames, and the new F4.0 – which replaces the Biomimetic 400 – remains primed for players with longer swing patterns from the baseline.
Our testers found themselves taking a little while to adjust to the balance of the frame but once they had zoned in the F4.0 proved to be a spin-friendly racket with plenty of feel.
Be warned, though – it’s not the most forgiving of frames. The racket had a tendency to wobble on impact when missing the sweet spot, leading to unpredictable drops in power. You need to find the centre of the stringbed consistently to unleash its full potential.
