This is a classic racket from Dunlop that was the business back in the day, and is now, as they say, “back by popular demand”.
I used to play with this myself years ago, maybe 2007 or so? Dunlop just re-released this back onto the market as a “classic” frame. It’s similar in style to the Dunlop Biomimetic Pro GTS (2013) and Dunlop Biomimetic Pro GT-X (2011).
Lloyd notes in the comments that the re-released version of the frame is not the same as the original Dunlop Hotmelt.
Here’s Paul from PDH Sports comparing the re-released Dunlop Hotmelt Pro against some of the newer frames. He says the newer frames are a bit stiffer and provide a touch more power (though they are still control rackets). The Hotmelt is firmly in the control camp.
Weight: Medium (140 grams)
Head Size: Small (470 sq. cm)
