Following on from the success of the Pro GT-X series, the all new Pro GTS series has been developed in conjunction with the PSA to offer a pro player specification and is designed for players seeking ultimate control
with additional power.
 
The new frame geometry incorporates a sharper cross sectional profile in the hoop allowing increased head speed and improved manoeuvrability. The racket shaft has a more curvaceous profile allowing greater power to be generated from the back of the court or when close to the side walls.

Technology Detail:
BioFibre
18% Reduced shock on ball impact = Greater comfort, feel and control!

Stronger than steel and lighter than carbon, Dunlop has
extracted the stem fi bres from plants and woven them
into the shaft portion of the racket.
 
On ball impact this natural fibrous structure actively
filters shockwaves by 18% to provide a cleaner more
solid hit than conventional all composite construction.
 
 
AeroSkin CX
36% Reduced aerodynamic drag = Greater racket head speed for more power and spin
 
Dunlop has taken the concept of low drag surface
texturing to a new level. Inspired by the textured skin of
sharks and engineered in a wind tunnel.
 
AeroSkin CX smooth’s turbulent air and reduces drag
by up to 36% to provide greater racket head speed for
more penetrative shot making.
 
MoS2 Grommets
27% Reduced string friction & 40% increased abraision resistance = Greater power, spin & durability!
 
Inspired by the wear resistant self lubricating properties
of snake skin, Dunlop has engineered a revolutionary
new polymer featuring a microscopic lubricant MoS2.
 
MoS2 increases grommet durability by 40% and
reduces string friction by 27% delivering more string
movement for enhanced power and spin.
 
 

Head Shape Anatomy & Choosing a Dunlop Squash Racquet:

Every player is different so selecting the right racket can sometimes be difficult. Dunlop offer 3 different types of racket head shapes and the guide below will help make the selection process easier:
 
Closed Throat / Conventional:
The main distinguishable feature of these rackets is the triangular shaped throat piece, located between the head of the racket and the shaft. Closed throat rackets have a smaller, more dense string bed which in turn provides a reduced sweet spot size and is suited to more experienced players seeking improved precision and control.
 
Open Throat / Teardrop:
Open throat rackets do not include a triangular throat piece like that seen on closed throat rackets; the head of the racket is directly connected to the shaft. The main benefi t of this head shape is the larger sweet spot size as a result of the increased main string length and is suited to players seeking excellent power and improved consistency.
 
Hybrid:
Hybrid frames are the result of combining geometry from both open throat and closed throat rackets. Hybrid frames retain the teardrop shape as featured on open throat rackets but also include a small triangular shaped throat piece as seen on closed throat rackets. The outcome is a racket which offers a good blend of power and control and is suited for players seeking all round playability.

sports. As the World’s No.1 Squash brand, champions such as Lee Beachill, Jonah Barrington & Geoff Hunt have used Dunlop products to reach the pinnacle of their Squash careers.
 
Dunlop is a truly international sporting brand with a great heritage of innovation and achievement. Each premium Dunlop racket is carefully hand crafted to precise specifi cations by skilled craftsmen utilising over 80 years of experience.
 
Dunlop have been pioneers in racket technology through the ages culminating in 2007 with the introduction of a revolutionary technology, Aerogel, to premium racket construction. Aerogel is a record breaking technology which is one of the lightest and strongest materials in existence.
 
In 2011 Dunlop employed a truly unique approach to product design and development that builds on millions of years of evolution. Biomimetics is the study of nature and the natural world to inspire cutting edge engineering solutions and technology. Dunlop used this principle to create the ultimate range of performance equipment - Dunlop Biomimetics - Inspired by nature, perfected by Dunlop.
 
For 2013 Dunlop have developed entirely new technologies and introduced new racket frame geometries to take the concept of Biomimetics to another level by creating the most performance enhancing range of rackets to date.
