Dunlop Biomimetic Pro GTX 130

Finally, I’m posting about my own squash racket! I started using the Dunlop Pro GTX 130 a couple months ago and so far I’m liking it.

Prior to this I was using the original Dunlop Hotmelt Pro. I had been using that for years. I finally got down to my last Hotmelt and thought it might be a good time to find a new racket. I tried a few at my club’s pro shop and narrowed it down to either the Dunlop Biomimetic Evolution 130 or the Pro GTX 130.

I was tempted to go for the Evolution 130, but the sweet spot felt much further up the string bed than I’m used to. I thought that could be pretty handy, after adjusting to it, when having a tight rally up and down the wall.

Still, the sweet spot on the Pro GTX 130 just felt so familiar. The same was true of the weight and balance — it all felt so familiar. I went ahead and bought it.

Later I found out why the racket felt so familiar. I laid it on top of my last Hotmelt Pro and saw they were pretty much identical frame shapes. In fact I couldn’t really tell them apart in terms of frame shape, weight or balance. So I guess it makes sense that I went with this racket in the end.

Update: This racket has been succeeded by the Dunlop Pro GTS 130
