And here’s the product:

This is the replacement for the Dunlop Force Evolution 120. As I mentioned in the video, this racket is now called the Dunlop Hyperfibre+ Evolution Pro as opposed to the Evolution 120 (and I think it’s smart they’re edging away from using the frame weight in the branding), however I have seen some product pictures with the same racket but “Evolution 120” as the branding. See along the shaft in the picture below. I’m not sure if the racket has a different name in certain markets, or if they simply changed the name late in the game, but I believe it’s the exact same underlying racket:

A similar racket to this is the Dunlop Hyperfibre+ Evolution.
Thanks to Simon for the tip!
Here’s a tweet from Nick Matthew about his new rackets. These say Evolution Pro, by the way:
