Designed for players who like to hit clean winners from any position on the court, the Dunlop FX 500 features an aerodynamic head shape and a streamlined shaft for increased swing speed and unrivalled power. The racket’s POWERGRID string tech utilises wider crosses at the top of the stringbed to create a 30% larger sweet spot for greater control over off-centre hits, combining with precision groove grommets to allow increased string movement and improve power potential. A wider throat provides stability when you’re going for big shots, while FLEXTOUCH resin in the shaft combines with SONICCORE technology at the top of the frame to reduce unwanted vibrations and give a more natural, accurate feel. Designed for comfort and manoeuvrability, the FX 500 Lite weighs in at just 270g – ideal for younger players making the step up to adult rackets, or anyone who simply prefers a frame that’s easier on the arm. Like every racket in the Force range, it features a 16/19 string pattern for easy access to spin, while a mixed-width beam provides stability where you need it.
Please note: this racket comes unstrung.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
