Just saw the new design on TW, looks ugly and kinda old school
Gonna buy the 325's 2011 design before it's gone.

Anyone knows if there's any new technology in the new racquet? or just a paint job?:confused:

Are you serious?? :shock:

You think these frames looks worse than their predecessors? These new PJ's look awesome, IMO. Those Japanese masks on the previous version were beyond tacky.

The one on top looks like a Volkl Organix or Power Bridge 10.

I am, however, simply tired of black/yellow schemes. I think Volkl is foolishly sticking to the same taxi cab color for their 10 series.

Did the Volkl racquet artist get fired and re-hired at Technifibre?

The 2012 graphics and the graphics they replace both strike me as aesthetically dreadful, crudely imposing hyper-masculine designs you'd expect from a German company, not the French.

As per other posters in another thread, same racquet with new cosmetics. There is silicone in the handle now.

How does the 325 98 square inch racquet compare to the Pure Drive Roddick GT? I've heard its even MORE powerful!

I don't know about the performance of these new sticks, but in terms of aesthetics they are going in the right direction..........

Roddick is much lighter than TFight 325, feels a little heavier during swing though.
IMHO, Roddick is good for serves, 325 is good for ground stroke, top spin and volley, has better control.

haha, not even sure if Tecnifibre hired Volkl's or Babolat's old guys, the LOGO on the racquet is in a vary similar pattern as on PureDrive

People like the samurai paintjob? That's crazy. Ugliest paintjobs ever. The new ones are sharp. Im going to demo the 320, especially with the silicone in the handle now.

Does the 320 have silicon or just the yellow and black one?

I believe it has silicone now according to TF's website

hmm same racket with newer paintjobs. I don't know if I should get the new 320's or just buy more of the samurai pj's once they go on sale. I really like the 320's but the current samurai pj is a little tacky. What do you guys think? pay $180 for cleaner pj or snatch some samurai pj's once they go on sale?

+1, not even a question for me.

TF 325 is just gorgeus, I held the one Kudla plays with, it's a beauty.

His had lead on the throat piece, 3&9 and somewhere else.

About the TF the entire line is already available everywhere else including e. b. a. y .

Silocone was in the handle of the last 320. Only thing that has changed is the PJ.

Amazing sticks, but they are really best for full poly jobs.

I would use a multi or gut. Are you saying that would be too powerful?

The open pattern really helps on the full poly job. Multis are ok, but youre not maximizing the stick's capabilities

Given that it's the same spec with different cosmetics you get your choice of look for a short time.

The newer looks better, but I don't mind the experimentation even if it doesn't work for me.

The yellow on the throat of the speed looks like a stylised fleur-de-lys?

Is it just me, or is everything turning to look like the freaking blx's? Doesn't all the "across color 3 inches than to black until the next across racket" they all seem so boring x_X

They kind of have my attention with this pre-filled handle thing. The new pj is way better. Hows the 320 on volleys?

Don't really think TW will have them both on shelf. When the Samurai Design was here last year, the Red/Black design was off the shelf as soon. Where, besides **** can I get a discount old model?

dude the handle was prefilled on the last ones. It is the exact same stick.

I guess it is a youth thing? I actually love them just for the fact that they are not the typical boring black plus color. I like the paintjobs are that of the rebel and out going graphite the most though. Wish my tours had that design.

somehow this eluded me. i think i was blocked by sheer hatred of verdasco/ the ugly pj.

I don't understand it, I could really care less about cosmetics. Why not do some R & D based on the feedback from these sticks and update the frames?

because the frames are pretty good and the most complaints were that the cosmetics are.....hhmmmm.....fugly! ;)

the only things that were changed is that the t-fight 295 and 305 now have silicone in their handle too!

this is a good thing because the 305 really is a great racquet only that it used to cause a lot of people pain due to its stiffness.
that should be solved now by using silicone in the handle.

Designs do need improving but those graphics are just the addition of a transfer tatoo to the frame.

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 :)

Wait my new T-Flash 300

no, the only the 320 and up had silicone in the handle. now with the launch of the new cosmetics the added that to the 295 and 305 too.
