The FX 500 from Dunlop, their ultimate all-around racquet, is suitable for a wide variety of experienced players from intermediates to advanced players looking for a punchy modern racquet that fuses power, comfort and spin.
The headsize at 100 square inches provides a blend of control and power with a forgiving feel. Coupled with the headsize, the open string pattern has a livey feel with easier access to spin. The weight being slightly heavier than average at 10.6 ounces (unstrung) brings added swingweight for increased power potential and bigger return of serves. Its head-light balance (unstrung) increases your ability to move the frame quickly, an important factor in generating power as well as being conducive to fast movements at the net for game-changing volleys. The beam thickness varies along the frame providing optimized power and comfort characteristics.
Enhancing the above physical characteristics of the frame are the core technologies Dunlop has implemented into the materials that make up the racquet. Power Boost increases string movement improving power response. Flex Touch Resin enhances comfort and vibration dampening properties. Sonic Core reduces impact shock and frame vibrations. Power Grid String Tech optimizes the string layout for a larger than usual sweet spot with enhanced spin potential.
Combined with the core technologies, the FX 500 brings great spin with forgiving feel and explosive power for an all-around attacking game. This racquet should prove quite popular among Dunlop's racquets due to the sheer versatility that would make many players happy with its overall performance.

Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.
Product specs such as weight may vary slightly from racquet to racquet to what is advertised due to the manufacturing process.
Adult Racquets Sizing Information
To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.
If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
