Dunlop Biomimetic Ultimate 2013 & 2012

The Dunlop Biomimetic Ultimate squash racket is one of Dunlop’s top-of-the-line models. I’ve had a hit with the 2012 version (I think the 2013 version is the same frame). It’s got a looooong head, which feels sort of funny when I hold it, but it strikes the ball nicely.

Here’s a nice review by Paul from PDH Sports, including a comparison to the Dunlop Biomimetic Elite. He feels the Ultimate gives more control, while the Elite gives more power:

  • Looks like Greg Gaultier now has this as his paintjob at the World Series Finals:

    • Thanks Jeroen, that’s interesting. I wonder why they are now painting it to look like the Ultimate (he used to have it look like the Elite). And they didn’t even do that good of a paint job!

  • I doubt Shabana ever used this model, I think he just kept on using his signature ice custom elite painted as whatever the latest version of the ultimate was at the time. You can easily tell the two models apart because the ice custom elite had a removable handle (with a screw at the racquet’s bottom) and because of the stringing patterns which are different (14 x 18 on the ice custom elite vs 15 x 19 on the ultimate).
