A great choice for intermediate players looking for a tennis racquet that increases power and spin without sacrificing control, the Dunlop Black Widow provides a forgiving 102 head size to help players learn and excel at the game. Lightweight and fast, the Black Widow is remarkably maneuverable with a slightly head heavy balance that creates a solid feel at contact. Rounded out with Dunlop’s Biomimetic technologies, this all court racquet is comfortable to hit with, provides outstanding grip and slices through the air up to 25% faster than standard racquets for increased power.
This racquet is prestrung with Dunlop Black Silk 16.
Reduces aerodynamic drag by up to 25%* for increased racquet speed and power.
Aeroskin is inspired by the skin of the most highly evolved marine predator, the shark. Its streamlined body is covered in microscopic riblets which create localized turbulence which in turn reduces drag. This allows the shark to slice through the water with more speed and strike with more power.
Like the shark, Aeroskin uses a unique textured skin strategically applied to the surface of the racquet which helps to smooth airflow around the racquet to reduce aerodynamic drag. This makes the racquet quicker through the air to generate enhanced power, improved maneuverability and allow faster reaction time.

HM6 Carbon: HM6 Carbon reduces racquet frequency and vibration by up to 10% for ultimate energy return and feel.
HM6 is inspired by one of the strongest, most efficient structures in nature, the honeycomb. Its complex mass of hexagonal cells creates an incredibly strong, lightweight structure that's up to 95% air to naturally absorb impacts while maintaining its shape.
Using a revolutionary new manufacturing process, Dunlop has taken high modulus carbon fibers and engineered them into a hexagonal structure. The HM6 carbon material is placed between layers of Aerogel enhanced carbon to create an incredibly stable construction.
HM6 carbon is so effective because a hexagon is made up of 6 equal sides. When this construction is applied to a racquet, it means the unwanted frequencies are absorbed and distributed evenly, giving enhanced racquet feel and minimal energy loss which equals maximum energy return.
Gecko-Tac: Provides up to 50% more grip and tack than previous Dunlop technology, giving greater control, feel and precision.
Gecko-Tac is inspired by the pads on the foot of one of the most highly evolved species, the gecko. The nanoscopic surface of the gecko's foot gives it the ability to stick upside down on any surface, in any condition.
Like the gecko's foot, Dunlop's incredible surface treatment technology provides superior levels of grip in any condition. The smooth tacky surface is also perforated which helps wick away excess moisture ensuring you never lose control. Gecko-Tac grips provide better control, precision and comfort, whatever your level of play.
