Updates for the 2023 version include improved frame flexibility for more comfort, as well as an adjusted grommet system for better power and increased energy return. Overall, the Dunlop FX 500 2023 is a versatile racket that offers many high-end features for players looking for a superior quality racket.


Racket Design

The Dunlop FX 500 racket is suitable for intermediate and advanced players. With its head size of 98 or 100 square inches and open string pattern of 16 x 19, it offers a mix of control and power with a forgiving feel. Its slightly heavier than average weight at 10.6 ounces (unstrung) brings greater swing force for increased power and bigger serve returns. The head-light balance (unstrung) increases the ability to quickly move the racket, an important factor for generating power as well as quick movements at the net for decisive volleys. The thickness of the section varies along the frame, offering optimized power and comfort features.

Dunlop has implemented advanced technologies in the materials that make up the racket. The flexibility of the frame has been improved to offer a more forgiving and comfortable feel. The grommet system has also been adjusted to improve power characteristics and increase overall energy return. Dunlop's Sonic Core technology is strategically located at the 2 o'clock and 10 o'clock positions of the frame to reduce unwanted shock when hitting outside the optimal zone. The Power Grid String technology optimizes the string layout for a larger sweet spot and improved spin potential.

By combining these technologies, the FX 500 offers excellent spin potential with a forgiving feel and explosive power for versatile attacking play. With the 2023 updates, players from the previous generation will appreciate the additional comfort found upon impact while still maintaining the overall swing feel. This racket should be popular among Dunlop rackets due to the versatility of its overall performance.

Advantages of the Dunlop FX 500 2023  

The FX 500 2023 offers a very accessible level of power regardless of your skill level. You can easily overwhelm your opponent with the superior spin capabilities that the racket provides. It is relatively lightweight at 300g unstrung, which provides a great balance of power and acceleration during ball-to-racket contact.

The Sonic Core technology provides better playing comfort and reduces unwanted shock. Overall, the Dunlop FX 500 2023 is a racket that meets the demands when considering the purchase of a new tennis racket.
