Description

The FX Team 285 from Dunlop is a great option to get started playing tennis quickly as it's pre-strung and suitable to a wide variety of players due to a great balance of power, control and comfort features.

The headsize at 100 square inches blends power and control with a forgiving sweet spot. Coupled with the headsize, the open string pattern has a livey feel with easier access to spin. The weight, being slightly on the lighter side of average should prove easier to maneuver for comfortable serves, quick net-play and fast adjustments in the heat of a point while still maintaining enough mass for big return of serves and great depth on big swings. Its head-light balance (unstrung) enhances its maneuverability and whip for spin potential. 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. Aero Skin CX brings less resistance through the air for quicker movement and a snappier feel. HM6 Carbon adds a honeycomb design to the graphite structure which offers up a racquet full of dynamics that is lighter and stronger.

Combined with the core technologies, the FX Team 285 is an easy recommendation to players who are just starting out and want a racquet to grow with as well as more experienced players looking for a balanced and forgiving frame to enhance their game. The fact that it is pre-strung and a great price should make the choice even easier!

Grip size palm measurements for tennis racquets

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.
