    Problem with dunlop racquets?

    I persoanlly see no problem in the dunlop mil series racquets, excuse me if i didnt say that correctly. I think the problem with dunlop is that they dont spend the time or money to try and sell their products for tennis any more, like sponser people and what not, but in my oppinion i think their great racquets especially for the price.

    They are great racquets but there are better ones out there with the feel that people love to play with. Now with Vantage, you can just customize your own racquet.

    Dunlop sponsor's top pros. James Blake, Tommy Robredo, Tommy Haas, Thomas Berdych, Thomas Johansson, Nicholas Almagro. All these players are in the top 40.

    Talking Dunlop Australia

    I had a dunlop aerogel 500 (beautiful racquet)
    Living in Australia and, not all pro shops stock dunlop racquets. Mainly, i am told because of their poor delivery times. They make a lot of money on balls and cheap K-Mart type of racquets
    I have been told by my pro-shop that they often find it difficult to get the dunlop sales rep to show up.

    I am sorry to hear that. I thought since Dunlop was based in England that Australia would be a big market. I know they have a Dunlop website in Australia.

    Dunlop is alive here and, i can get their products. The problem is i have to order over the internet or drive 140 mile ther and back to demo the racquets.
    Do demo 100 to 500 aerogel is ok but if i wanted to demo the 700 i would have to call in advance to have them get the racquet in for me to test.
    I live in a major center so that is not the problem.
    My understanding is they run a very sloppy business in dealing with racquets & even balls for the pro shops and tennis centers.
    Everybody here uses the dunlop slazanger balls so the shops have to work with that but maybe the racquet side with dunlop is too hard work??
