I recently switched to 315 speedflex and I love it.

When I bought my second 315 as a backup, I was wondering if I should get 300. But read somewhere they are exactly same racquets except 315 has silicone in the handle. So I ended up buying second 315. I have tried nrg2/Msv hex at 56/52. It's perfect. Last night I put vs team/Alu rough at 58/53. Still need to try with it.

I feel 300 may bit light and unstable, though I have not hit with it. Also it might be little harsh on your arm without silicone.

What do you mean by 2011 cosmetics? Somebody posted alink recently with new cosmetics, but they are not on TW yet. If you already have old tfights, why no wait for the new ones?

Thnx for reply...TF 315 is great but I think if I play with TF 300 will have more spin and control :confused:

Was playing with new TF 315 but now waiting latest one:) It will come to me for 10 days:)

Good to hear another person liking 315 speedflex. I searched TW forums. There is very little feedback/talk on these gem racquets.

If you happen to try 300, please post your findings comparing with 315. I am very much interested in knowing.

As far as new cosmetics, will they be available on TW in 10 days?

I will write review about TF 300 and TF 315, and photos will post also :)

Try black code 1.24 mm/17 string it's best for me.

It think that TW will sell new rackets for 30-45 days...

I'm gonna have the speedflex 300 tomorrow. I feel like it would be better for me to stay on the lighter side first and if it still felt too light, I can customize it to my liking.

Sounds like a great racquet from the specs and according to TW power map, it has slightly higher power and larger sweet spot than the youtek extreme I was considering.

I also just saw the new cosmetics, i wonder if the older versions will be discounted in price soon?

I picked up a TF 300 and was a little disappointed with the stock balance. It was a little less head light than i would like and the swing weight felt high.

It was pretty accurate on weight though, as it weighed 315 grams strung. I ended up adding some weight inside the but cap and now it weighs 326 grams. It feels much better now.

I just need to test strings and tension to see how it works out.

Wow, both of those are very stiff. Do they play as crisp as their stiffness level indicates?

Though I have not played, that's what I expected from TF 300 as said in post #3. It's bit light and unstable and less headlight.

If you are leading TF 300 to make it heavy and more headlight, you can as well try TF 315. Added advantage is silicone in the handle makes it plush on hitting compared to it's stiffness rating.

I love TF 315. One of the best undiscovered gem racquet.... atleast till I stumble upon another gem :)

I don't know about TF 300, but as far as TF 315, it plays softer compared to it's stiffness rating due to silicone in the handle. I was pleasantly surprised ...

I've got the weight back back down to around 321 grams, which is a nice middle ground. I may have to try the 315 though just for comparison. My only issue now is getting use to the shape of of the butcap, a little more rectangular than i'd like it to be

I've have all series of t flash now will buy new one, I'am very satisfied with Tecnifibre. Try put black code 1.24 mm/17 string...

You must play some time to feel racket...

Was play today with Babolat AeroPro Drive GT, racket is really good but there is no strenght :neutral:

T Flash 315 is power monster for Babolat :twisted:

so much for keeping the racquet light. I've had to start using leather grips now because they're the only ones that last for me now. Also, had to customize the grip to be more round.

After all those modifications, it weighs 340 grams and it felt really good in the one set i played today =)

How would you guys compare these frames with the Pure Drive? Similar specs and frame mold, just curious how close they play to each other. Close to the Pure Drives before cortex?

Nice that you like this racquet because it's very good :) I think that is too heavy 340 grams :confused:

Was think that new models have only new cosmetis...

Now...option Tour prepared have models:

Only available on 295,300,315,320 and 325 models.

Process: integration of silicon in the lay up of the handle

Benefits: limits the bad vibration linked to the frequent use of polyesters string.

More comfort for player :)

Old thread, but thought I'd update since I hit with a new 2012 TF 315, but i prefer my older TF 300s

This comparison isn't at stock weight however. I have them at the same weight, yet the sweet spot feels bigger on the 300 compared to the 315. The silicone in the 315 might be giving me a disconnected feel compared to my 300s

Following up because I liked the way the 315 played against higher level people.

The 300 felt good wth 4.0-4.5 people, but playing against higher 4.5 people, the 315 felt like it had more control.

However, we'll see how they both feel when I increase the tension on both of them and play against these guys again
