Racket Review: Dunlop NT R4.0

Dunlop NT R4.0

I felt it had great feel on everything all round

This Dunlop racket wins the vote as the best all-round racket

In the second part of our 2017 racket reviews our testers put rackets aimed at club players through their paces.

As part of the brand new Dunlop NT Yellow range, the R4.0 didn’t disappoint. It came across as a well-balanced, powerful and extremely solid racket. At 290g, Howard and Jenny much preferred this lighter weight than that of the 308g R3.0 in the advanced category.

The stability of the racket was evident at the net and the baseline which made for an all-round solid piece to add to the racket bag given the combination of spin, power and control that it offered. The technology behind the NT R4.0 is to give the player less vibrations and more power, feel and spin and by offering a larger head size at 100sq it will suit players who are after a slightly head heavy frame with excellent power and manoeuvrability.

This racket certainly appealed to Howard who said, “I felt it had great feel on everything all round.”
