    Hi guys,

    Just asking about all the 3 Tecnifibre ranges they do - T-Fight, T-Feel, T-Flash

    Im looking at the T-Flight 320 and T-Flash 310.

    I want a fair bit of power with a bit of control. The specs are roughly the same so no problems just tw states that the 310 has medium power and the 320 low.

    Any owners out there willing to share their experience?

    Yep, Barca Tennis is right. The TFight is really cool, it has a crisp, soft feeling on my groundies with a fair bit of punch. Also on volleys I like this feeling that u will never miss, due to that soft feeling. On serves it's pretty nice i suppose, not the most comfortable on contact, a bit tinny though. Good stick though!

    Hi, I have a 320 18*20. Off the ground this stick is just trully insane, just raw power with control. However, I've always had problems on serve, one day I'd go out bombing them and then the next day I'd feel I couldn't make a single 1st or 2nd serve.

    Yea have to agree entirely with Johhnyf, although I use some lead on my 320 it plays amazing. The serve part I feel is true also, I guess it depends on the type of serving day ur having, but sometimes u can serve huge, sometimes u can't. All around it's a great racket.

    Yeah, curiously I'm about to take it out and give it another chance so was wondering how your's is set-up. I had 12 grams of lead between 3 & 9 and 8 under the grip.

    Thanks for all the replies. But serving is the big problem of mine. I create some power but need 10% more than my LM is giving me? Also my kick server needs work on, is the racket good for top spin serves as its a 97 inch head and im coming from 107

    Also whats the weight like. Im a teenager, the 320 seems a nicer weight than the 335 for me anyway but is there much of a difference.

    Finally 320 or 320L. Ino the L has a longer handle but is that all?

    320 will be fine for a teenager, I'm 16 and for the last 2 years have been using rackets weighed up to 375g (dropped it abit recently) and in summer when playing on an ultra slow court beef it up by another 10 odd grams

    I use about 8 grams of lead at the 1-2 o'clock, and the 10-11 o'clock position

    Yes, I'm also 16 and the racket weight is almost perfect for me, hence the added lead tape, as for spin off ur serve as long as u accelerate it's a very helpful racket.

    Nope, Nowadays i'm 6'3 12.5 stone but I was alot smaller/lighter when I started at that, At first I didn't know it was that weight, it was all done by feel by now I know that's the weight I'm used to. It's not exactly that big just what I'm used to.

    So would it be better than the Head Microgels? Also my coach can get Tecnifibres off the manufactor but doesnt yet know the price. Do you know what it will roughly be from any past experiences?

    Looking at radical pro as it weighs a bit more than the mp and is more powerful apparently

    But whats Microgel MP/Pro like compared with the 320?

    The price from ur coach should be within a range of 50-93 U.S. dollars. I don't think he will have to pay anymore then tht for the rackets.

    The radical MP is a good racket also. I think tht it's a very good racket for ur forehand, but not tht much for ur backhand. I think tht u should at least demo before u choose one.

    The difference is that you can expect the pro to weight alot more than your lm os, I'd certainly recommend the mp which has more power than an lm os (I found the lm os horrible) and should come at a similar weight

    Ok cheers but the pro is mean to have more power than the mg mp. Might demo one or both but just waiting for the 320 quote off the manufactor

    Does the 320 actually have much power or does it depend on string tension mostly

    i use the 335 and love it, basically if you can hit the smallish sweet-spot you will adore it

    string it 57 ish with syngut, i go 56 when i am not fealing great to make it a bit more forgiving
