Courtesy of the folks over at Dunlop we've recently received a copy of the new Dunlop Precision Elite squash racket.
We'll be doing an in-depth review ahead of the next issue of SquashXtra, due out September, but here's our first look at one of Dunlop's latest offerings.
Dunlop Precision Elite

Stringing Pattern 14×18
Target Play Style Control
Like the new Dunlop Precision Ultimate, the Precision Elite is a new look version of one of Dunlop’s existing range – in this case an update on the old Elite GTS.
The Precision Elite is endorsed by World Champion Gregory Gaultier, and carries the Frenchman’s signature on the throat.
Like the Ultimate, the Elite has a large 500cm2 head but weighs in just a little heavier at 135g compared to 132g.
The main difference between this racket and the Ultimate is the stringing pattern, with the Elite featuring a 14×18 pattern compared to the 16×19 on the Ultimate. As a result the Elite should, in combination with the added weight, deliver more power on the stroke but sacrifice a little control to it’s brother racket.
The supplied grip, like the Ultimate, is incredibly tacky while the technology in the frame – including fancy sounding elements like Aeroskin CX and Biofibre – are designed to give a smoother through-the-air swing and greater responsiveness during play.
Look out for a more in-depth review at a later date
