ATP Tour player Nicolas Almagro is playing with the Dunlop Biomimetic 500 Tour. Players will find that this tennis racquet is very comfortable and performs well in all areas of the court. The open string pattern allows for a big dose of spin. Baseline players have an easy time to maneuver this 11 ounce racquet with a swingweight of 313. It is very forgiving and reaching for the tennis balls almost out of reach can be returned without problems. The fact that the Dunlop Biomimetic 500 Tour is easy to maneuver also shines through at the net. Players can easily position the racquets for volleys and there is a good feel as the racquet is not as stiff as many other racquets used by the professionals. Intermediate players all the way up to pro level players can benefit from this tennis racquet.
The Dunlop Biomimetic 500 Tour has been treated with a surface application that has been inspired by shark skin. This technology is called Aeroskin and helps make the airflow over the racquet surface more streamlined, thus reducing drag by up to 25%. The result of reduced drag is a faster racquet speed and therefore more power. Another technology utilized by Dunlop in this tennis racquet is HM6 Carbon, which consists of sheets of high modulus carbon fiber. HM6 Carbon reduce vibrations and enhance the feel by up to 10%, and also minimize the energy loss for a more powerful shot.
