    I've been using a hybrid of Cyberflash 17g and Gosen Micro 17g for the last few months. My tension has gotten progressively lower with no ill effects thus far. Right now I'm stringing the CF mains at 51 and the crosses at 52. I don't plan to switch any time soon, but I do want to try the new Cyber Red when I can get my hands on some.

    Hi,
    at the moment, I play with a babolat PDR GT, but i'm maybe looking to buying a tecnifbre racket :D (been saving up)
    I'm not sure what racket I should get. I'm a baseliner, hit with a lot of topspin, looking for a light racket, and forehand is my best shot. What do you guys think?

    Def the TFight 320....best baseline racquet, built for extreme topspin.

    Have a pair of 320 non VO2, 16x20, if you're interested. Near new condition.

    I disagree, I would go with the T-Flight 320 VO2, best netplay racquet.

    Tecnifibre 320 VO Max user here.

    I've been using Pro Supex Big Ace 17g at around 62lbs. Probably going to go down in tension. Playing indoors I need a little less string dwell time.

    How about you guys.

    Too bad Tecnifibre doesn't make the new TFight in a 335, I would snap that up in a jiffy.

    Hey Sup,

    How does Big Ace play in the tfight? I just ordered a pair, one strung with luxilon big banger alu power @ 57 lbs and the other with BBO @ 57 lbs. Thanks man, and if you have any good string suggestions to try out that would be great.

    I used the lux for a long while. I found that it took a bit to get the strings to settle. So I started to prestrech the string per another posters suggestions. Found it to be very helpful.

    Then I found Pro Supex Big Ace 17g. Which felt just like lux after it settled. The good news that it didn't need to be prestretched and was a fraction of the price.

    Try it out. You can get it at a certain site. Email me if you need the website

    sup2dresq@aim.com

    Thanks
    Sup

    can there be an edict that anyone who says "T-Flight" instead of (correctly) "T-Fight" has their membership from this club revoked? T-Fight, people.

    Hows the review coming along?
    Could you also post a few more pics of the actual frame, mainly because on pictures of the t-fight on different websites the head-shape looks strange sort of yonexy like so i was just wondering what it looked liked in real life?
    Thanks.

    Sorry mate, I totally forgot the review.
    This is an amazing stick! Very good from the baseline, my forehand is stable and powerful and my 2handed backhand is much more stable than it used to be with the t-flash 290 VO2 max. The stick is a spin monster, and has much power, so I would not recommend it to flat hitters!!!
    serves are great also, kick serve has huge amount of spin. volleys are deep, so i can't complain about anything.
    I love this stick.
    pics later

    By the way, it looks like we are premier league fans here. I am a huge Arsenal fan. Anyway I admit Aston Villa is a good club ;)

    TFight 320 vs TFight 320 VO......The best of the best

    To all of you that have been use both sticks, what is the best?, i have been playing for two years with TFight 320 and i can tell you i dont need any other raquet, great raquet with solid performance and with old fashion feel.

    Your comments.

    I recently obtained a T-Fight 335, the 16x20 version, and I was wondering, those who use it/have used it, how do you string it? I don't have much experience with the racquet and am trying to get a idea of what strings/string tension I can use to help get as much as I can out of this racquet.

    I have been playing for 1 year with TF335 16x20. First I put a powerful multi string TF X-one 17g at 55 lbs but after a few months I tried my trusted Head RIP Control (at 55/53 lbs) that dropped the power level a bit but I gained more control. I lowered the tension to 53/51 lbs for some more feel and power.

    I have one string with Unique Tourna Poly Big Hitter String 16 at 62lbs.

    And the other strung with Forten Aramid Composite 16 (mains) and Gosen Polylon Ice 17 (crosses) at 62lbs.

    I like the Big Hitter for more control.

    The best of course is personal preference, in my case i Had both and ended up selling the vo2 model. just not the same racquet, the older model 320 had a thinner beam (my preference) and seemed more maneuverable, especially at net. both good quality racquets

    going from an AK90 to a 320 VO2 Max... good idea? Love serving with the AK90, feel is very nice... but looking for larger head size (less shanks). :)

    Normally use co-polys in low 50's... how do strings like Topspin Concept Pure, KB Pro Line II, Polystar Energy or even Lux ALU Power Rough play in this stick?

    jcs I have been following your thread on Concept Pure and look forward to trying this string. I've been using Cyber Flash strung in the low 50's and have been very happy with it, it just doesn't last very long before it goes dead and balls start flying, but I guess that is to be expected with any poly. I strung up a couple with the new Topspin Cyber Red, but it's been so damn rainy here lately I've only got about 1 hr of hitting out of it, which is not enough time to formulate a decent opinion. I've also got a few packs of Tecnifibre Promix on the way... Very interested to try this one out and see if it is indeed a "soft" poly type string. Will report back with results on both as soon as I can get on a dry court

    Have things dried up? :) Promix looks interesting... would like to hear how that plays...

    I heard the Cyber Red is stif, is it stiffer than Cyber Flash? I just strung my TF 320 VO2 with PolyStar Energy, will play that later this week. (had a go with the TF strung with MSV Hex, it was not too bad)

    A little drier these days... but my foot has a nice blister so I haven't really been playing much. I hit with the CyberRed for about an hour last week, it did not feel quite as stiff as Cyberflash to me, but I did not do a head to head comparison. Red definitely feels softer in the coil or when stringing but they are more similar feeling stiffness wise when hitting than I expeced. Its been a long time since I hit with Big Ace, but for some reason I am reminded of that string when hitting with the Red...and there is just some quality of BA (mainly the unique feel on impact) that I am not a fan of. I haven't had a chance to use the Promix yet, but I am really looking forward to it. Hopefully it holds up to my expectations

    Almost forgot..let us know how the Polystar Energy matches up in the 320. I

    also have a set of Pacific Tough Gut that I want to try, but I just have a feeling that I wont like it in this racquet. I may try that in my Dunlop 4D200 16x19, as that stick feels a bit underpowered, especially compared to the 320

    Brief hit with PSE in the 320... not too bad! I took off the leather on the handle and used just two overgrips (a little lead added to handle) and got a ping sound going... needless to say, the leather is back on and sounds/feels a lot better...

    need more time with PS Energy. Spin is there, but I am using the 1.20... feels a touch wiry... control is nice, not terribly powerful (as noted from others, but i have to consider the racquet the strings are in) will try the 1.25 next time. :)

    Ooh nice. I'm using the 320 V02 max.

    String: Mains: Red code 57 lbs
    Crosses: Black code 60 lbs

    Lead at 12 o'clock, 3 and 9 o'clock. Lead also under the over grip. I don't use a replacement grip. Grip size is 4 1/4 but it is custom built up

    LOVE IT!

    Anybody using (or used) a leather grip on their 320 VO2?? If so what did you think?

    I put one on one of my sticks the other day, but the weather is so crappy I havent been able to hit with it yet... Boy does it feel nice in the hand though, you can feel the bevels MUCH better than a standard synthetic grip.

    what type of leather grip did you use "i suck at tennis"??

    I'm thinking of getting one myself for one of my two 320's

    I felt that a leather grip helped dampen the ping/metallic response... and the racquet believe it or not felt more solid and more controllable.

    Handle wrapped with Pacific ATP Pro Black.
