    Have ordered the 16x19 version and getting TW to customise to my spec. the mold, flex etc with some mods looks very good

    My current frames strung with overgrip are 345g and 32cm balance, so have provided the unstrung specs to him based on what i use.

    Also for his reference, he asked me to estimate the swingweight of my current frames using the TW method. Its a strung with overgrip SW so not ideal for him, but gives him a ballpark. Dont know how accurate it is but did it a few times and took the average and the SW came in at 354. I have happily used frames with lower swing weights and am open to this so will see what options he can provide based on lead placement.

    I hope the TF will release a decent number of these as I got a feeling I will really like them. My main concern is going back to low flex and I don't remember the TF grip shape - I use TK82S.

    Yeah they look promising. I may end up looking into the 18x20 version, but look to be pretty similar to my current frames, hence trying 16x19 version.

    Did you get rid of all your 57a's?

    the grip looks a little closer to TK82, but could be wrong. Its been a while since using anything tecnifibre

    How does this racquet compare to the PSTGT in terms of plush, control, stability, and ease of swinging the racquet? I know you mentioned needing more lead to stabilize the racquet.

    The grip shape may be a turn off...
    Anyway, yes, got rid of the 57's and am using the Speed MP 315 with silicone/lead last 6 months or so...

    But am really curious to try this TF...

    When I click order one on TW the estimated in stock/ship date was Feb. 8. I'm still on the fence about ordering one without demoing. I may wait until a few of you guys move on & decide to sell

    If it is like the original Tfights as suspected, they have a nice feel, but are not as plush as the Pure Storms.

    I remember this happening with one other frame I ordered once. Can't recall which, but was highly frustrating. Kept getting pushed for over a month

    the delay has forced my wandering eye over to the new Slazenger V98 Tour and perhaps even the Solinco Pro 8. The low stiffness rating of the 315 Ltd. is still enough to give me cause to wait it out though.

    You'd be surprised just how often containers fall off ships in transit across the Pacific.

    The written review is up. Sentiments echoed the video in that the racquet needs weight to reach its full potential. I normally put lead at 10 & 2. I may start off going with lead from 10 around the hoop to 2. I'm not a big mod guy so this should be fun trying to get the setup right for the T-Fight 315

    For fellow Canadians: I emailed the export manager at TF and he told me the frame will either arrive in Canada via their distributor this summer, or not at all.

    I'm currently playing with modded dunlop 300 tours (leather grip, 12g at 12o clock). is it from the exact same mold as the tf315? looks pretty close to me

    It has been very annoying.

    Mine will be at my door Friday. Sorry TW but somebody else had them in stock. Looking forward to stringing them up and hitting by early next week. I'll make sure to report back.

    Is this frame just a redo of the original T fight 325, only standard length and with a little less weight? The mold certainly looks the same, As do the bumper guard and grommets.

    Mine is waiting for me at home! So weird how Tecnifibre cannot correct the specs on this frame in any marketing. Just saw the new issue of Tennis Magazine and it is listed in their Gear Guide description as a 16x18 even though the pic is 16x19 and so is the listed spec. It is wrong on the Tecnifibre site as well as multiple other retail sites.

    Hmm compared my two that came today. One has a factory misprint on the throat and is missing the last t in tfight. It was also stickered from Tecnifibre as an 18m when definitely a 16. So much for their "tour level" quality control :???:

    I'll get some more pics up tomorrow after stringing. I'm also hitting tomorrow so should have some first impressions as well. Still can't get over the goofy misprint and just all the weird marketing stuff surrounding these frames.

    Love at first hit for me so far. These are great racquets. Feel is great. You can definitely feel the benefits of the silicone and there was very little vibration, even on off center shots. Definitely better than my Bio Max200G in that respect. Groundstrokes just felt SO solid. Volleying is great, the balance makes it easy to to maneuver at net. Serving was great, when I was tossing well. I definitely had some mechanical issues getting in the way serving but I am going back out later so I'll have the chance to go again. Still has a bit of a metallic ping without a dampener in but I play with one, so a non-issue for me.

    Plow felt good, considering the swingweight is so low. Played other solid 4.5's and didn't get pushed around so I don't know that I'll be adding any lead.

    Very pleased so far and am excited to get back on court again today. Nothing but good things so far!

    It is good to hear some real positive comments about the racquet already! I am excited to try one out myself.
    Cannot wait to hear more people's opinions about the racquet.

    finally my 315 LTD 18x20 arrived. No misprints. If you look at the 4th pic you'll see an additional portion of the head guard (it can be seen in the TW pics as well). It has "Shock Absorber" written on it. did not read about this in the review. Just swinging it around the house the racquet feels somewhat heavy. Heavier than the listed 309 swing weight. Can't wait to take it out tomorrow for its first test drive. will report back.

    It's because of that extra piece on the grommets that makes me think this is the original t-fight 325 mold, but standard length and a little lighter. Can anyone confirm?
