Designed for pure power – a teardrop head shape, long main strings and a slightly larger weight. Also the head light balance makes it very easy to maneuver.

Update: This racket has been already replaced by newer models – the Biomimetic Revelation 125 and Biomimetic Revelation 135.

Reviews:

Dunlop’s most powerful squash racket, the Max, has been upgraded into the Biomimetic lineup. The teardrop head shape with long main strings (responsible for that extra power) remained the same, only the head is a bit slimmer now, compared to the previous Aerogel 4D version. Also a new PowerMax string pattern has been used so the strings now lie in a fan shape, not parallel. And it still remains the heaviest racquet of the top-class lineup.

It retains most properties of the older Max – lots of power for a good basic length game, very good maneuverability thanks to the head light balance (effective for volleying) and a different, stiffer feel than other Dunlop racquets.

The first version of Biomimetic Max came in 2011 and new versions appeared in 2012 and 2013 – they differ in weight slightly and also the technologies have evolved – for example the AeroSkin for faster head speed, BioFibre and HM6 Carbon for reduced shockwaves on ball impact and reduced vibrations.

Players report it plays nicely, the balance is great and that it has a nice feel. It enables very powerful shots and control is quite good as well.
