I had a hit with this racket and really liked it. It has a nice forgiving head shape, good touch, and is quite maneuverable as well. There are some minor changes to the shaft over the previous model, but nothing too dramatic.
Here’s the blurb from Dunlop:
Looking for raw power? The Dunlop Sonic Core Revelation 125 has a larger head size and thicker aero beam to help you hit with maximum power on every shot. The Sonic Core with Infinergy technology enhances all round performance, with increased power and comfort from a larger sweetspot feel. Infinergy technology also helps to reduce vibrations by up to 37% compared to a standard carbon fibre Dunlop racket. Glidepolymer helps to reduce friction between the grommets and strings to allow for greater string movement. A new V-shaped cross-section increases the frame stability for greater ball feel and enhanced shot power.
The new Dunlop Sonic Core POWER series is made up of five rackets and has been developed to offer excellent racket power and enhanced comfort due to Japanese technology (Sonic Core made with Infinergy by BASF).
