The initial cosmetics and promo photos from Dunlop show “Evolution 130” printed on the shaft, but the one I tested, and the name I think Dunlop is going with, is the Dunlop Hyperfibre+ Evolution.
This racket is the 2017 update to the Dunlop Force Evolution 130. There’s another Hyperfibre+ racket new for 2017 with the same frame shape but a little lighter called the Dunlop Hyperfibre+ Evolution Pro (Nick Matthew’s racket).
