TENNIS.com Review
By Bruce Levine and Richard Pagliaro on April 25, 2011

Fernando Verdasco plays with a customized version of the 300, and if you can find the sweet spot consistently, it can unleash the inner Spanish shotmaker lurking within. Groundstrokes, when struck correctly, penetrate the court with depth. The racquet’s rapier-sharp potential was also evident on swing and drive volleys. However, some testers said it was slightly too light (10.22 oz. unstrung and 10.75 oz. strung) to nullify big hitters during blistering baseline exchanges.

Likes: Whether you drive a flat ball or prefer whipping titanic topspin, if you hit the ball cleanly you’ll be rewarded by the Biomimetic 300. The aggressive red-and-black color scheme and distinctive Aeroskin surface—designed to make the racquet more aerodynamically adept—highlight cutting-edge cosmetics that make a striking statement.

Dislikes: Weight and response were issues for some play-testers. (For them, the heavier Biomimetic 300 Tour, Jurgen Melzer’s frame, is a better option.) Some reported a smaller sweet spot and stiffer feel than its classic ancestor, the classic Dunlop 300G, which earned a cult following for its flexibility and feel.

Bottom Line: This racquet rewards the accurate ball striker. It won’t help the lighter hitter pack a more potent punch, but if you’ve got a good, reliable swing and the ambition to play all-court tennis, you may find a partner in the 300.
