Buying a racquet in 2014 is exactly the same as it was back in 1914. Once you find the racquet that best fits your game, you choose a grip size and off you go. Boring!

That’s all about to change.

Introducing Dunlop’s revolutionary new racquet line, iDapt. With iDapt, you can create the perfect racquet for your game. Choose from 4 different head sizes with 3 different cosmetic options each, then decide between the 2 lengths (27 inch and 27.5 inch) and 3 different levels of feel (soft, medium, and firm). Add in the 6 grip sizes and the combinations are endless. To be exact, there are 432 different combinations for you math wizards out there.

1 new line of racquets. 432 choices. Wow.

Not enough customization for you? Want to increase the weight, change the balance point, add more power, and all that fun stuff? But not really sure how to go about it? Dunlop’s got your back! Simply add the optional Blast Zone weights to your racquet! Place these weights in the indicated Blast Zone areas around the frame (at 12 o’clock, 3 & 9 o’clock, 10 & 2 o’clock and even on the handle) to add power, stability and/or increase maneuverability. Finally, a racquet that’s truly unique and built to fit your game and playing style!

Each racquet also features a new Aero Boost Grommet System. This system enables the strings to both absorb more impact shock and transfer greater power to the ball.

Once you figure out exactly what racquet you want, your job is done. We’ll put it together for you, string it up and ship it right to your door!

Top 10 most satisfying moments for a tennis player
