Dunlop Launches Revolutionary Line Of Racquets

Dunlop’s new iDapt line of tennis racquets launches at select retailers today.

The racquets, introduced last week at an event in New Orleans, give players the ability to individualize and adapt their frame based on their playing needs. Players can customize the head size, look, feel and length of their racquet, to create any of 432 different options, then have a retailer assemble it on the spot. The initial range of patented iDapt racquets features four different head options, each available in three different cosmetics: iDapt 98, iDapt 100 (16x19 string pattern), iDapt 100S (14x18 string pattern) and iDapt 105. 

iDapt racquets will retail for $199.00. Players can visit to learn more, build their own iDapt racquet, and find an authorized iDapt retailer.
