    New Vo2 Max 320, 16x19 is bought, in my hands now. I would love it to play best at it specs, but I fear there is a need for some lead tape (I like more hh r. for my 2H BH). Well, we will see!

    Yes Zidane, after tested Tecnifibre, wilson, babolats and head strings, i found Wilson enduro tour 16 and Wilson superspin ex syn ( cross) at 62 pounds.

    Now let me tell you something, this weapon loose about 2 or 3 pounds very easy i noticed about that since begining, i started with 58 pounds with tecnifibre strings but one week later loose control, so i changed to Wilson enduro tour that gave to me more responce and control then i added Wilson superspin ex syn and with this i added great spin, to avoid any issue about string tension i tried with 62 pounds with great results, also i noticed control gots better but when you apply power this great stick got it.

    About swing speed, at begining i tought to add lead tape, but with this string set up and new string tension was enough, also i can apply with out any problem very good swing speed.

    This raquet is army friendly too.

    Custom is nice.

    I hope my expirience with this great weapon helps you.

    My best regards

    Great, I will have to try that setup out. I have two, so I'm going in the 50s with one with Big Ace, and 60s with the other with Big Ace. I might try out lead tape, but the SW is absolutely great right now. I've never swung so freely before in my life!

    Thanks for the reply!

    Let us know your experiences. I also have the 320, but it feels weighted already from the previous version for extra pop. Weight feels great, but I don't get as much racquet head speed as the previous versions since it is more HH.Definitely an awesome stick though. Have fun!

    I have found really good setup for 320 vo2: yonex 850 pro @ 53lbs in two-piece...

    Highly recommended.

    You should definitely try it again because Yonex changed 850 pro string. It is different now (better!).

    Btw, maybe you could put me on that list of yours :) I have 2x320VO2 and 1x320 Original...

    Thanks,

    Bob

    I already joined the T-Fight club before so you can add me to the list . I own 2 x TF335 18x20 and 1 TF335 16x20 and one more on the way. My favourite stick is TF335 16x20. It is more versatile and slightly more forgiving than the denser version.

    Before I decided to stick with TF335 I used to play with Head FXP Radical Tour. A very nice baseline frame but my net game was suffering with it.

    So I was looking for a frame that is doing well everything.

    I demoed many other frames like with the following experiences:
    • Dunlop AG300 -> good control and power but too light and therefore unstable for me
    • Dunlop AG200 -> very pinpoint control but too stiff/firm, too demanding and too heavy swingweight
    • Head Radical Pro -> very forgiving frame with huge amount of power. I could do everything well with it only a bit too stiff. I almost considered to buy this one but I hated that the strings are moving like crazy due to large open string pattern.
    • Head Prestige Mid -> great stick with a very nice plow through feel. Pinpoint directional control with groundstrokes. However my slice bh and kick serves pale compared to a midplus frame due to the small 90" headsize.
    • Head MG Prestige MP -> I decided to buy this one because through the experience with mid version I felt I need a midplus for more spin and easier baseline game. Because the low swingweight of the MG MP in stock is much too light for me I customized to the specs of the mid. I didn't manage to achieve the desired result so I sold these ones lately.
    • TF335 18x20 -> At last I tried TF335 18x20 that has a pinpoint control that I like very much but the lack of spin was an problem for me.
    • TF335 16x20 -> Because I read many good reviews about the TF335 16x20 I decided to buy one and it seemed to be a bull's eye! My penetrating slice and kick serves were back again and I noticed the softer more comfortable feel from the slightly bigger sweetspot.
    As strings concerned I use at the moment full Head RIP Control 17g that feels comfortable with good control and ball bite due to the textured surface. But I want to try a hybrid Leopard Big Ace 1.22 mm (crosses) with RIP Control 17g (mains) for a bit more punch at volleys.

    What is your opinion? Which is the better racquet and why: the old T-Fight 320 or the new T-Fight 320 VO2 max ?

    I think they both have great attributes, so its up in the air for me. I think its subjective to a player.

    The PreVO2 swings super easy with a 308 Sw, but lacks the pop of the more heavy and HH VO2.But, the PreVO2 is more manuverable and forgiving, in my opinion. They are both great frames!

    Please sign me in, I got two TF320's one strung tight with red string and the other lose with white strings. I took off the dampeners, I hope that is OK. But not if I have to get dismissed from the Pure Storm club, because I actually like them better, I just don't have them handy to hit.

    I think it's a great club though. More pics would be great though...

    Hey where'd my membership go-LOL

    I have 3 x t-fight320, 16x20, grip 2, (4&1/4) strung in redcode at 58 lbs -wilson pro overgrip

    I have had thoughts about using leather grips instead of the red ones and removing the extra 8lbs of lead on the handle, thoughts anybody?

    PS always looking for more if anybody has them for sale.

    Tecnifibre brand..........big mistake

    Lets put this issue over table, why does Tecnifibre stop to sell T-fight line :evil:, this weapond gave to them great results and put them on the map of raquets brands, what happened?, may be to much cost to maintain two raquets line?, may be a wrong marketing move?, what happened?, already we can find T-fights line but what will happen in one year or two, what if one of my raquets goes break?.

    My best regards.

    Hey no brand will usually stick with the same stuff for years on end, they feel they have to try successfully (or otherwise) to create a buzz with new gimmicks and stuff, technifibre are no different

    i think they should of kept with the idea of old school more as in smaller beam width more graphite and whatever new gimmick.i dont think switching the general characteristics is so smart.i havent tried them out yet so i may not know if they are an improvement.

    Guys, I hit around with the 320 VO2 max for about an hour again tonight and its becoming a dream! I'm coming from the KBlade Tour, which I felt was hindered me by a small sweetspot, unforgiving head size, tight no spin pattern, and high static weight.

    The VO2 cures all those problems but maintains the best attributes of the KBT! I can get massive spin, but I can still crank out flat winners! Its still stable weight wise, but low enough that its comfortable. The string pattern's great also and the headsize felt like a 98".

    A must demo! I'm sticking with this one for a while.

    I hope to hear a few more like this thank you:) I want to get this racquet, but don't really want to demo a single racquet.

    Nope that is the original grip. The white grips are Babolat VS

    Guys, I'm currently using the string setup that came with my 320 VO2. At first I thought it was a poly hybrid, but after looking it up, its KEVLAR! A hybrid of Gamma Infinity and Pro RedCode @ aorund 56lbs. I felt no pain in my arm, and the power and spin are great. First time trying kevlar, and I like it.

    Thanks! Yeah they should from now on post pics to be added to the club, that should be a rule. They are just so beautiful, the colour scheme. And yeah, Noveson posted nice pics, but at #34 should be OK for him.
