Racket Review: Dunlop Force 98
Amighty popular frame for our testers
Force by name, but would Dunlop’s advanced offering be a force by nature?
Well, perhaps not a force as such, but a mighty popular frame for our testers nonetheless.
The cosmetics pleased both Sarah and Elliot, with the 300g, 98-square-inch set-up providing enough power and there was control too.
Elliot was so impressed he even found an element of control over the ball when he didn't quite find the sweetspot, which isn’t always the case with frames aimed at better players.
Sarah was a particluar fan. “I love it,” she said, explaining that it gave her great power, felt very stable and seemed to particularly help her around the net.
Dunlop Force 98 - voted Best Value in the 2016 tennishead advanced racket awards
It is not easy finding a racket that’s aimed at the top end of the game for under 160 notes, but this Dunlop Force 98 came up trumps. Our tester Elliot said: “I wouldn’t pay top money for it but if it's cheap then it's a good option.” Well, not cheap exactly, but definitely good value for money.
