Introducing the lightest member of Dunlop's Srixon Revo CX series. At 10.6 ounces strung, Dunlop's Srixon Revo CX 4.0 Tennis Racquet is not only suitable for intermediate players, but it should also work well for the less advanced player who wants a performance racquet that will reward continued improvement. Boasting a thicker beam than the other CX models, this racquet offers easier access to power, but it still manages to feel precise and predictable on full swings. Part of its control comes from the open 16x19 string pattern, which provides the needed spin-potential for bringing the ball down sharply. Thanks to Dunlop's Synchro Charge System, CX 4.0 benefits from a uniquely elastic graphite which improves the stability, feel and response on off-center impact. It also has Sonic Core Technology, which injects urethane and silicone into the head of the frame to increase dwell time and energy return (think power and spin). To improve comfort, Dunlop deploys its vibration absorbing Rubber Grommets along with a sweetpsot expanding Straight String System. From the baseline, the CX 4.0 feels comfortably firm, and it offers easy targeting on full cuts. There's also plenty of spin to be had thanks to the fast feel and open string pattern. The mobile weight makes this a great racquet for scrambling and hitting winners on the run. At net the CX plays fast and accurate, and it offers enough put-away power to close out points. Finally, the lively and precise response on serves should help you force some weak replies.
