Seeking to elevate their position in the crowded marketplace, Dunlop looks to make quite an entry with its latest offering – Dunlop iDapt (“individual aDaptable performance”). Taking cues from the customization that pros often employ with specific lengths, dampening feel, and weight, the iDapt line offers a level of personalized options not seen in the racquet arena until now.
The visual impact upon first glance is remarkable. The head, handle, and dampening interface are displayed in separate pieces, with a total of 432 possible combinations.
Depending on your preferred level of feedback and feel desired, the Shock Sleeve dampening interface offers firm, medium, and soft options which are also interchangeable.
The iDapt frame, shock sleeve and handle is connected via an aircraft aluminum grade bolt connector inside the handle (accessed through the butt cap) and tightened to the proper torque specification with a proprietary torque wrench only available through Dunlop iDapt dealers. This connection is claimed to be many times stronger than a traditional racquet connection, according to Dunlop Product Developers.
The iDapt line will be in stock and available August 15 from Midwest Sports.
