    I'm watching the Istomin vs Nadal match and the frame is mostly black unlike current T-Fights 325s...

    If you look at the picture...

    And yet Tecnifibre on facebook says he's promoting the 325...

    Just a guess. Maybe he's promoting the new 325s out this fall.

    Tec TFlash..........

    These racquets are part of the new TFlash series from Tec. Baghs is also using the new frame. The TFlash 315 is already out.

    Cheers, TennezSport :cool:

    Eeee I don't think so. This would mean that all the pros endorse the T-Flash line and that is, well plain stupid.

    Besides the TF blog says they are endorsing the T-Fight 325s.

    Couldn't see the writing below the chest logo clearly but it looked like Mizuno. Haven't seen that brand on the tour since the days of Lendl.

    It's "La-ning," or something to that effect. Going off of a hazy memory, it's a Chinese based company that also endorses Na Li and Ivan Ljubicic.

    I have a 315 strung at 62 with BB Original 16 and it is an awesome stick. I love playing with it. Looks great too.

    Here's a screen capture I got from the Tecnifibre site you have to sit through 30 second of the introduction.

    It looks like an all black frame with white and yellow text.

    The new PJ is black and yellow and white. And there's a face of a Japanese WWII general (at least that's how it looked like to me)

    Just go to the Tecnifibre site and click the 325's. You'd see a picture of Tipsarevic with the Japanese cartoon on the background

    At the risk of sounding stupid, I was wondering if Tecnifibre is trying to make the characters on the rackets look like the players that use them?

    Gisela Dulko obviously has her face on her racquet, Baghdatis kinda looks like the Neptune charter on the 315 and Tipsarevic kind looks like the Japanese General with the Helmet.

    Bagdhatis should start growing a beard then. :)

    If that's the case then that's awesome.

    I've seen the new frames firsthand and cosmetically they look good but the overall shape(s) and Speedflex tech isn't really sitting well with me.

    Has anyone got a chance to hit with the 325 VO2 or SpeedFlex?

    I'm still playing with the old T-Fight 335 (16x20), does anyone know it compares? I have to "upgrade" pretty soon.
