The Evolution racquet was a top seller from the 2010 to 2012 season, and this year will be no different. This year Dunlop switch the Evolution 130 to an Even Balance, creating additional power while keeping excellent maneuverability of the racquet. The Dunlop 2013 Biomimetic Evolution 130 Squash Racquet delivers a teardrop design for enhanced power, but still maintains torsional stability through a small bridge in the throat area. This frame provides the lightweight power of a teardrop head but the control of a traditional head shape. The 2013 Biomimetic Evolution 130 is World Number 1 Nick Matthew's racquet of choice.
Starting in 2013 Dunlop DOES NOT supply a cover with their racquets.
Racquet Covers - SquashGalaxy Cover is Only $8.00

Our favorite Squash wrap grip is the Squash Galaxy Wrap Grip. We've been in the business a long time and always get requests on what our favorite wrap grip is for squash so we went out and made our own! The Squash Galaxy Wrap grip has a smooth and extremely tacky feel and is the appropriate length and size for any squash racquet on the market. It's only $8 to have it installed at the time of purchase.
The Python Atlas Deluxe 17g (Black) string upgrade (+$25) is recommended at the time of purchase because the factory string generally has lesser playability and durability qualities and often strung too tight. After years of play-testing and selling strings in squash and racquetball we feel we can finally recommend a string to our customer base that not only offers great durability, but backs that up with a great feel and play. The Python Atlas Deluxe is a soft, multifilament string that will gradually fray through the life cycle of the string.(This is completely normal, so don’t worry about it. It will fray down to the very last fibers) For players looking for added “feel”, try the Atlas Deluxe in an 18g which is thinner and more responsive and for those who like a little "stiffer" string, try Tecnifibre 305 Green 17g which is still a multifilament or those who like a textured string that does not fray, try the Ashaway PowerNick 18g String.
If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Python Vibration Dampner (Our favorite), Head Smart Sorb, Head Megasorb, or the BBB (Big Bad Band).
A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?" It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet. Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper. For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!
We recommend an overgrip for players that tend a sweat a lot, want to build up a grip, or wear through wrap grips very often. An overgrip is thinner and wears quicker than re-grips, but can be changed much quicker and easier than a re-grip. We recommend the SquashGalaxy Black Overgrip or SquashGalaxy White Overgrip, but for those looking for the best sweat absorption, durability, and feel... the Overgrip/Re-grip gives the best combination. Note** when an overgrip is installed, you will not be able to see the re-grip if chose to have it installed.
We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet.
If you want the best cover on the market buy the SquashGalaxy Full Racquet Cover. It has a full outside pocket, a handle strap and a large shoulder strap as well as a ventilated pocket to let your grip breathe and best of all its $2 less than the others because we want to help you by supporting our company! The charge will only be $8.00 when added to the cart for this choice instead of $10.00 like the other covers.

Bang for the Buck $$$$
Introduced in 2011 - 2012 Updated for 2012 - 2013 and again in 2013 - 2014
Nature and its organisms have evolved over millions of years to become highly optimized and efficient in their chosen environment.
The concept of Biomimetics is the study of nature and the natural world to inspire the design of engineering solutions and cutting edge technology. Application of Biomimetic design can be seen in a diverse range of different industries from wing design on aircrafts to the design of high speed bullet trains and advanced structural engineering. Sporting examples include super strong crash cells in formula 1 cars inspired by honeycomb and hydrodynamic swimsuits inspired by shark skin.
Dunlop has taken this concept to inspire Biomimetic racquet Technologies, creating the ultimate range of performance racquets.
For 2013 Dunlop has developed entirely new technologies and introduced new racquet frame geometries to take the concept of Biomimetics to another level by creating the most performance enhanced range of racquets to date. The new Biomimetic technologies for 2013 - 2014 are BioFibre, Aeroskin Cx and MoS2 Grommets.
BioFibre: Stronger than steel and lighter than carbon, Dunlop has extracted the stem fibres from plants and woven them into the shaft portion of the racquet. On ball impact this natural fibrous structure actively filters shockwaves by 18% to provide a cleaner more solid hit than conventional all composite construction.
AeroSkin Cx: Dunlop has taken the concept of low drag surface texturing to a new level. Inspired by the textured skin of sharks and engineered in a wind tunnel, AeroSkin Cx smooth's turbulent air and reduces drag by up to 36% to provide greater racquet head speed for more penetrative shot making.
MoS2 Grommets: Inspired by the wear resistant self lubricating properties of snake skin, Dunlop has engineered a revolutionary new polymer featuring a microscopic lubricant MoS2. This increases grommet durability by 40% and reduces string friction by 27% delivering more string movement for enhanced power and spin.
Gecko-Tac: The name given to Dunlop's new grip surface treatment. Much like the pads found on gecko's feet, which can even cling upside down to wet surfaces, Gecko-Tac grip provides up to 50% more grip and tack than previous Dunlop grips, giving players greater feel and precision with their racket.
