    Zidane, give your 320s another shot. A powerful flat forehand shot is possible....

    Too late buddy, they're gone :(

    Missing them a lot actually, but I'm excited for the future. I think mostly it is my swing mechanics. I don't swing nearly hard enough to hit a hard FH consistently, and the weight of the 320 doesn't help either. I think I need a tweener frame like the PD to hone my swings before I use a serious player's stick like the 320. One day I will back, I hope.

    Does anyone here have experience with the tflash 315? Is it hopefully a flexier tfight 320?

    How's everyone's Tfights doing? Haven't heard from anyone in a while

    Long story short, i'm back to the tfight 320 vo2s...actually bought the exact ones I sold back!haha..tried out about ten different frames since the 320 and nothing worked, so I figure, I just need to work on my game with the 320 and stick with it...

    Man you are weird :) haha. I think this is the 3rd time you've switched back to the 320s. What frames did u try?

    Anyways, so far so good with the 320 Vo2s; I am still trying to work my game around it. One issue I have is the return of serve, which is sometimes too powerful for my taste when I block a serve. It might be a technique issue though...

    Haha I know, I'm a little quirky...it's fun to try new frames, but I think it's time I stopped. Don't really have the time to now a days with a tough semester ahead of me...I tried a lot of dunlops because the molds are similar to the prevo2 tfights and I liked them a lot. Nice solid frames. I tried the 300 4d tour, 200 4d, ag 300, ag 300 16x18...not dunlops, I tried the pd gts, head ti radical, pd roddick...some others I forget, haha....the dunlops were nice, but didnt blow me away in any areas...

    Anyways, good to hear you're still with your frames!

    Zidane what strings are you using these days? I am really liking the 17g Cyberflash in the mains, have been using Pro Supex Titan or Gosen OG in the crosses. I started out at 56 lbs, and have gone down to 54 lbs (56 for the crosses). I think I'm going to drop one of them to 52/55 and see how that goes. I've also got a half set of Pacific Tough Gut that I'm going to put in my mains with a syngut cross. I can't wait to test that out, I'll post my results in a few days

    Go full poly topspin Cyber 17 gauge in the Tfight. Try it at 56#s. It's spin city. I am still an apdc guy, but the 320 is a real fun stick.

    I have 5 320 VO2s ... 2 in 4 3/8, 3 in 4 1/2. I'm looking to trade the 2x 3/8 in for 1/2s in order to ease my OCD mind. I would consider selling them if some 1/2s become available, but I really just want the same grip size without a grip sleeve or multiple overgrips (it's a weight/feel thing). If anyone here has or knows of such a beast, let me know.

    I also ended up getting a classic 320 to go with my classic 335. Nice racquet, but I still love the VO2.

    WRT strings: I have a full string database as I try to track down what I like best. I have a number that I like a lot (e.g. black code mains, sppp or cyber blue crosses; black magic, msv hex,maxim touch, etc. Ideal tension varies based on the string), but I think I'm going to end up with two "comfort" setups (gut mains), 2 poly/gut (or big ace micro or maybe a multi), and 1 "control" frame (full poly).

    CF wasn't in my favorites, though CBlue is. The best price/performance non-gut division front runners for me are the Black Magic/Maxim touch @ 52/55 (durability not great), Black Code/SPPP @ 50/52 (BC is expensive, can substitute others, MSV Hex, for example), or SpinX/Big Ace Micro @ 52/54. Gut, of course, is welcome any time.

    monomakh what tension(s) do you use when you put gut in your 320's? Also what are you using for crosses?

    I'm going to string mine with gut mains for the first time tonight, and am probably going to go with 58 lbs for mains and crosses.... unless I get some advice that sways my decision

    Still a huge fan of Cyberblue, just a really soft and comfortable string...have a Cyberblue/NXT hybrid right now. Pretty crisp and powerful, but might just a bit too soft and powerful.

    Going to try Lux BBO next in my other unstrung frame.Interested to hear your thoughts on how gut performs on it!

    I've tried a range, but generally right now I've settled at 57# with gut on the mains and 55-60# when on the crosses (depending on the main). Full gut setups I go in the 57-60 range to try to tame the power of the frame.

    For crosses with the gut mains, I've only used multis: Pro Supex Maxim Touch, Babolat Addiction, X-1 Biphase, NRG2, and a couple Alpha multis. For price/performance, I'd go with the Maxim Touch. None of them are particularly durable, but that's the best overall value.

    Anyone know why Tec changed the specs on the old 320 and the new VO2 Max 320? Really disappointing imo, thats why I can't switch to any of the current VO2 models...

    Not really sure, but you are right, they are completely different sticks now. Perhaps they are trying to make the trend towards a modern game? The vo2 def is a more baseline oriented stick IMO, with a lot more spin and power. Def does not have as much feel and old school hitting of the preVo2.

    I mean the specs of the old TFight just fit my game. 97 sq, 11.9 strung, 18x20, couldn't ask for anything better. Especially coming from a Head Prestige.

    Its a shame really. I was going to switch to Tecnifibre but they told me they can't offer the old 320 in the sponsorship package.

    I had to settle for a Dunlop 4D AG 300 Tour which fits my game a bit better.

    The hugest change they made was the string pattern . They just made it alot more open and it makes such a huge difference IMO... I am one of those people who can't sway away from my dense 18x20 pattern

    One of them cracked on a serve. And I gave the other two to my sister because she actually liked it more than her pure drives. I got a great deal on the 325's. 3 for 120

    Ah, you used the 18x20 of the Prevo2? I actually thought you were referring to the 16x20 version, which I used more extensively.

    Actually, some people say the 4d 300 tour has the exact mold of the prevo2 tfights! The grommets of the tfights actually fit the 300 tour supposedly! I have a spare 18x20 tfight grommet hanging around, but I haven't had the time to try this theory out. Either way, the molds are very very similar, so maybe you got the same stick in the end, except a bit lighter.

    Yes, I have heard that I did pick the right stick in the end. And it is also similar to the Prestige, except a bit lighter. I am fine with the less weight, as I was trying to find a racquet that I could swing faster and get more pace

    Demo'd the 325 XL ...I liked it just not sold on the 27.5" handle...maybe the 335 would be more to my style, they have them new for 99.00 just would like to try it out first

    Can anyone confirm that the new Dunlop AG 4D 300 Tour is the same mold and basically a lighter version of the Tecnifibre 320 (pre VO2 Max)

    MrMo, I still have that 18x20 grommet of the tfight series laying around that I don't use.. If you want me to ship it to you so you can try to see if it fits in your 300T and confirm it is the same mold, I would be willing to do that. Just pay for the shipping. Let me know, zidane339@aol.com.

    I got both rackets and yes, they are basically the same. Except 300T is lighter and softer.

    All right thats great. Would you say that the 300T is the closest racquet to that 320 out there in the current racquet market? And do you think coming from a Flexpoint Prestige MP that the switch isn't very drastic?

    I wanted to find a lighter swinging racquet that gave me more pop (power) without losing any of my control that I got w/ the FXP.

    Tecnifibre TFight 325
    12.1 ounces
    21mm beam
    98 sq. inch head size
    27.4 inches
    Strung with poly/syn gut hybrid at 55/57

    Groundstrokes:
    This racket is really comfortable from the baseline and really solid. The extended length is great with my two handed backhand. Despite the 18x20 string bed, it has the most spin ever that I have experienced with a dense pattern. The slice stays nice and low as well. This racket did not have as much feel as the Liquidmetal Radical MP or the K six one tour 90 which were my previous rackets. It definately had more feel than my old Prince Ozone tour/pro tour.

    Serves:
    The extended length gives great leverage on the serve and again, really solid. I felt really comfortable with my second serve, I had a few second serve aces going.

    Volleys:
    At first I thought the volleys were going to be tough considering it is a hefty racket and not to mention the extended length. Once I got up there I was shocked by how manuverable it was. It must be the really headlight Balance.

    You got the extended version? And also isn't the string pattern very tight? Like 18x19? If so, how does that differ from something lets say... 18x20
