Newest update to Dunlop's racquet line, the Dunlop BioFibre F3.1 Tour updates the Biomimetic F3.0 Tour. This frame offers the outstanding control of a moderately thin 22mm beam with the added forgiveness of a 98 sq. inch head. Dunlop technologies include BioFibre in which Dunlop has extracted the stem fibers from plants and woven them into portions of the shaft of the frame. New updates to BioFibre technology provides a cleaner more solid hit and enhances racquet feel. The F3.1 Tour continues the use of Aeroskin Cx to reduce aerodynamic drag, making the racquet faster through the air and MoS2 grommets for more efficient string movement.
Geared to the advanced player with a moderate to fast swing, the Dunlop BioFibre F3.1 offers more heft than the BioFibre M3.1, weighing in at 11.6 ounces strung. 317 swingweight for added depth on your shots and a dense 18x20 string pattern for added stringbed stiffness and control.
For Optimal String Performance Dunlop Recommends:
Durability:Dunlop Black Widow
Please note: Dunlop does not include a cover with this racquet.
18x20 string pattern, gave me that player’s frame feel, but in an ultra modern styled racquet. Really allows for that whip like swing. 7pts head light makes this racquet really unique. This racquet really is about control. If you can really dictate play and pace, this racquet will allow you to do so. You need to be able to produce some of the power on your own. So if you are more of an advanced play who hits predicable shots (center of the string bed) and can muster your own power, I would really recommend this frame to you.

4.5 player and spin is not my game. Have always hit a flat ball and finding modern 18x20 is not that easy. This thing plows through nicely. Great control, especially on serves. Stability is not an issue either. Black Code and NRG setup and quite comfortable still. Great Blade alternative. Much more feel.
