    Tecnifibre TFight 335 Mid+
    (whats the difference between these two technifibre?)
    Tecnifibre TFight 320 Mid+

    Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine Mid+

    Dunlop M-Fil 200 95 18x20


    Can someone give me their opinions on any of these racquet? I've played with the Head LE OS 18x19 and its great but I want to see what else is out there. I have flat groundstrokes, SW forehand and 2hbh. Any opinoin/info would be greatly appreaciated.

    Thanks

    You should demo them. TFight 335 is heavier than the 320 (352 vs 332 grams) so it depends how heavy frame can you handle. The Tour 9 is not a really good racquet, compared to other Volkls it is stiff and just doesn't feel right. The Volkl is also a lot lighter and stiffer compared to the others you are checking out. The Dunlop is quite nice, but only if you can handle the weight and swingweight.

    Try them

    Thanks for your input panic.:)

    What other Volkl would you suggest that is a MidPlus and have a 18x20 pattern?
    I'm interested in the Volkl 9 VE mainly because of its price and because I haven't hit with any Volkl before. I wouldnt minded leading it up to 12 oz - 12.5 oz, the weigh of my current LE OS.

    So the main difference b/t the 335 and 320 is the weight?
    If its true that the 335 is 352 g / 12.4 oz, then that really doesn't leave room for much customization...

    ^What about it? It is any good?
    I might actually try the MP version instead.

    I strongly recommend you try the Tfight 320. I use the 18*20 version and it is excellent at everything.

    My friend played with the TF335 and M-Fil 200 and said that Tecnifibre although heavier than the M-Fil is still more easy to play, however he also stated that if he could handle the weight and balance of the M-Fil 200 for at least 3 sets then he would choose the M-Fil... so I'd say if you're in good shape and like really high swingweight go for Dunlop however if you like a lower sw and more HL balance frame go for Tecnifibre...

    If Volkl Tour 9 is already on your list, then I'd suggest you try Boris Becker 11 (regular version) as well. So far they're the only 2 Volkl sticks I really like.

    Read on these forums that it was prone to breaking at the throat.

    Suggest you see the extensive Tecnifibre thread on this board, where 320/335 are compared and discussed in detail.
