    Jeff -
    www.tennisworld.nl has a listing with pics of several frames from the Technifibre line (just click on the Technifibre icon), last time I checked the red model was not on the website, but the rackets will be coming

    Just go to the www.tecnifibre.com site and then to Europe and the English section. You'll see them all along with a list as to which player uses what.

    According to the Technifibre web site, Jerome Haehnel uses a Technifibre TFight 325 racquet.
    http://www.technifibre.com/siteus/tennis.asp

    Looks like they have quite a few male pros using their racquets, including Verdasco. Most are French, though. They also have a pretty complete line of racquets with like 13 different models.

    they have a lot of new racquets and many are made for different players based on baseline, all court, and net. Kinda strange

    Michael...do you know the flex of the Tecnifibre Fight 325..?
    I couldn't find it on their website...I looks like an interesting frame.

    Thanks Michael...I will try to get ahold of one and try it. If it similar to the PT 280 it should be a nice frame to try.

    TF and Major are from the same company. Is TF now the market brand for all their racquets?

    Major never produced a racquet I really liked. I would bet the frame with specs similar to the 280 would play like the old Major Bullet Elite D Ti, just 1/2 inch shorter. Remember that one, Michael? I sold it to you a few years ago. Tennis Mag reported they may start selling frames in the US later in the year.
