Dunlop Biomimetic Elite GTS 2014

Just spotted the Dunlop Biomimetic Elite GTS. It’s just starting to come on the market in August 2014. Thanks to Daniel for the tip on this.

This racket is part of the long-running Dunlop Biomimetic Elite series.

Dunlop Biomimetic Elite GTS Info

It looks quite similar to another racket, the Dunlop Biomimetic Ultimate GTS, in terms of weight (medium), balance (head light), head size (large) and head shape. Hell, even the color schemes are pretty similar — the Elite has a splash of green, the Ultimate a splash of yellow.

So, what’s the difference then? It comes down to the string pattern. The string bed on the Elite is more open — 14 mains and 18 crosses. The string bed on the Ultimate is more dense — 16 mains and 19 crosses. This should translate into a bit more control on the Ultimate, and a bit more power on the Elite.

Weight: Medium (135 grams)
Balance: Head-light
Head Size Large (500 sq. cm)

Dunlop Biomimetic Elite GTS Reviews

Here’s a review from Paul at PDH Sports. He says this racket offers good power, and is a bit livelier than the Dunlop Biomimetic Ultimate GTS.

Update: Here’s my own review. Enjoyed this racket, nice power and good touch.

Dunlop Biomimetic Elite Squash Racket 2013 & 2012

Here’s the 2013 version of the Dunlop Biomimetic Elite squash racket, which is promoted by¬†Gregory Gaultier of France, former world #1 and current world #2, though it doesn’t appear that he actually plays with this racket himself.

However I’ve seen comments here and here that he may actually be playing with a much older racket called the Dunlop Custom ICE Elite and had it spray-painted to look like the Biomimetic Elite. Perhaps he really loves the older model and doesn’t want to switch, even though Dunlop moves ahead with newer models each year for business reasons.
