Dunlop SX 300 Review

The new SX series features two more main strings than the previous versions. A dynamic set of spin-enhancing grommets work with the new spin boost string tech pattern, to offer players more spin, power and control. The grommets also allow more string movement, generating a spin rotation for more 'bite' on the ball. The extra movement provides a forgiving string bed, effectively enlarging the sweet spot. The V Shape frame geometry in the shaft area of the racket enhances the frames stability and overall power. 



The Dunlop SX 300 provides great topspin and control from the baseline, especially if you accelerate through the ball. It would suit players who hit with a lot of spin because of the topspin potential and easy power. The sweet spot is quite large, producing a lively response, perfect for topspin and slice shots. Hitting flat groundstrokes is more of a challenge, but if the ball is struck cleanly, targeting isn't an issue. The racket suffers with off center hits, but the large sweet spot makes up for that on most occasions. 



The SX 300 is solid up at the net. It's easy to position, and there is great power to be found for smashes and quick volleys. There is good control and nice feel, but net rushers may want to consider another option. The SX 300 suffers from a lack of touch and versatility up at the net, and off center shots lack power.  This racket would definitely suit a baseliner though. Topspin orientated players can achieve good slice by cutting underneath the ball, to make the ball zip through the court.


Serves and Returns

The Dunlop SX 300 is a great racket for serving because of the nice power and spin potential. It's easier to hit a flat shot here compared to groundstrokes, and applying kick and slice can zip the ball through the court. The racket invites players to accelerate through the ball and create spin orientated serves. The SX will suffer if you don't commit to your serve, creating a likelihood for shots to stray long down the court. 

Despite that, The ball comes off the strings well and there is good control and power here. Touch and fancy serves are not great, but the natural zip creates so many opportunities for wild spin serves. And the SX 300 is a dependable returner, but like volleys, off center shots and catching a return late can feel a bit dead. Easy depth and spin are a highlight here, and the swing weight makes it very easy to generate pace.


For those

The Dunlop SX 300 offers lots of spin and maneuverability. The yellow and black design is nice and blends well together. This racket would be best suited for topspin orientated players and aggressive baseliners. Hackers will also enjoy the power and spin, and winning points up at the net can be made easier by the rackets zippiness. At a reasonable price, players should consider the Dunlop SX 300.Check out our video review with former British No.4 Alex Slabinsky
