Dunlop CX 200 Review


The CX range is known for its fantastic control and fast swing weight. With the launch of the Dunlop CX 200 in 2021, Dunlop have added a versatile frame with great control and easy playability.

The 2021 edition comes with FLEXBOOSTER technology, a high-elasticity, vibration-damping layer in the shaft area. It filters out vibrations, giving players a less stiff, more flexible feeling. Power Grid String Tech creates a 30% larger sweet spot, evenly distributing power across the string bed. Sonic Core reduces frame vibrations by up to 37%, resulting in a more comfortable hitting sensation and a reduced chance of arm fatigue.



The Dunlop CX 200 is a consistent performer from the baseline. It offers a traditional feel and it swings very fast through the air. While there is not a lot of free power, it is easy to hit flat shots and play a rallying game, but there is nice access to slice and spin. The racket is definitely not underpowered but it doesn't provide the 'crushing' sensation that modern rackets do. Still, the user friendliness and great control make it a solid racket from the baseline. 



The Dunlop CX 200 is a great racket for approaching the net, with its thin beam and traditional feel providing great access for slice and reflex shots. Up at the net, the response from the string bed is slightly less forgiving and the racket suffers from some stability issues. Added weight may fix that , as the racket is easy to get into position. The CX 200 can execute a variety of volleys, but off center hits are less forgiving and harder hits can be hard to pull off. Still, overheads and smashes are great with this racket, and there is enough feel for touch and delicate volleys.


Serves and Returns

The Dunlop CX 200 offers accuracy and spin potential on serves, and it is easy to generate racket head speed. The control is solid, and the precision is great for flat and slice serves. The power is a bit of downside here, but the precision, maneuverability, and solid control provides great access to a wide variety of serves. Placement over power.

The CX 200 provides a whippy response for returns, but it still holds up against big hits. The maneuverability and control gives the player confidence to swing freely without overhitting. Players can take big cuts on second serves, start the point on the attack, or block the ball. The versatility of the CX 200 really shines here.


For those

The Dunlop CX 200 is a versatile frame, that will suit a general baseline game. Those who want free power should avoid it, but taller players or people that can generate enough power themselves will appreciate the rackets solid control. Those who like to hit flat shots, with drop and slice shots should consider this racket. Control orientated players will love this frame. Those who wish to hit with more topspin should take a look at the Dunlop SX 300 instead. In an overall sense, The CX 200 is a versatile frame for control orientated baseliners, with its classic red and black design. Check out video review with former British No.4 Alex Slabinsky.
