    I didn't get to hit with Dynacore 315 that long but it felt like a stiffer 315ltd. It was nice, reminded me of a AeroPro almost.

    I am a bit confused what you are planning? You like the Dynacore315 enough that you are considering a second one, but are concerned there's a better one coming out (or maybe like Irvin mentioned with the new eyelets)? I mean if you need a second racquet in general because you are breaking strings in matches or love strings that go dead fast then you should just get the second one cause I don't think another generation of 315 will be out for a while. Do you know what I mean? If you need a second racquet you probably should just buy it but if you don't need it then you could wait to see.

    @azrael201 the 315 is the same size head, different pattern, and stiffer than the Ltds.

    The Dynacore line just came out this year and has the new eyelets, I doubt you will see upgrades for the Dynacore for a while.

    Yes I am leaning toward this because for what I am looking for I do not think I will find it either in Head or Wilson having been a prestige mid user all my life and then lately Donnay Gold. This technifibre enables me to hit freely. The only thing is against a harder flatter hitter than me I seem to hit more balls out with it. Hence, my confusion .

    I used to play in tournaments alot but now more for rec use although it is still frustrating when I break strings (which is often ) and i have to wait a couple of days for my racquet even though I have spares like my Donnay and the prestige. I just do not want to make a mistake and then regret it if some better version of the 315 comes out.

    There is only one, the T-Fight 315 was replaced by the T-Fight 315 Dynacore which was released around March of this year.

    YES I was referring to the Dynacore 315 of March vintage. I have already bought one and enjoy it which is why I was thinking of purchasing another one. The only thing is I need to play against a much harder hitter because I feel I get pushed around and resort to hitting long unfortunately..........
    But it is a tremendous stick which is why I was wondering if there was another iteration coming up soon. but general consensus seems to be that it wont be out soon another version

    YOu see previously I bought two sticks and got tired of the second one did not enjoy it as much as the weights seem to be off...but I am sure I would like a second stick of this..


    do many people in your country play with this stick?

    I can't answer that question. I know several people that play with it but I do not see a lot of them. Most ask, "Who's Tecnifibre." Tecnifibre is better known for their strings than their rackets.

    Hey everyone,

    I am a recreational player that plays for the fun of it, usually against decent recreational players that vary in power and skill.

    Now, I am very interested in purchasing the Tecnifibre TFight 315 Ltd. 16 main but I would prefer not to tinker with lead tape or anything and hope that playing it stock will work out for my recreational play.

    I provide my own power, and I don't often play against any hard-hitters, and I just want a fun, comfy (flexy), top-spin friendly frame that has a players racquet feel and comfort level. I used to play with the Volkl C10 pro, but wanted something lighter and more maneuverable.

    Would the 315 Ltd. 16 m work fine in stock form for recreational play in your opinions?

    Again - just want something comfy with a classic feel that offers decent pop and spin and I love the feedback on the 315 ltd. i've been seeing.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated :)

    You will probably be fine. Most players want a higher swingweight, but that doesn't mean the racket can't be played stock. The only thing I would say is that I wouldn't call this a frame with "decent pop", but otherwise it meets your wants. It's very low powered, specially without any lead.

    Thanks so much for your input! Really appreciate it.

    Yeah... I hear that alot about the frame being low-powered... and that is my only concern to be honest. I love to take really big cuts at the ball usually, and in the past with other so called low-powered racquets, I would find myself hitting the ball long allll the time. Granted, that was probably due to me using the wrong strings with my topspin-centric strokes that didn't bite the ball well enough to generate the spin needed to keep the ball in the lines, but basically I'm just saying I do prefer to swing out fast and full as opposed to letting the racquet provide the power. I am a recreational player but I have been playing for years so I consider myself to have good form for the most part and don't swing wildly or anything.

    I guess I would have to just try it out and see how it feels as i'm sure it wouldn't be much fun either having to swing away really hard for every single shot just to get it over the net. That would be exhausting... Even with the low SW and relatively low static weight.

    Wouldn't the lack of power from the frame be somewhat improved by a strategic string setup?

    Yes, as with any frame, string choice and tension will affect playing characteristics. I know you said you want to avoid using lead, but i don't see why. It's quite simple. And if you're worried about the cosmetics of the racket you can put the lead under the bumper guard as long as it's in the upper half of the hoop, which is where you would put lead to get more pop.

    All great points, and once again thank you for taking the time to help make sense of everything!

    I wouldn't mind if the lead was placed under the bumper guard, but still sorta iffy in general. I'm also considering a few other frames at the moment as well, but in making my decision i'm definitely going to keep all your tips in mind.

    Thanks again for your thoughts!

    I just changed the grommets in a Dynacore a few days ago. The grommets are wider and fit deeper into the frame so it would be easy to put lead under the grommets all the way around the head. With the eyelets it is also possible to take off the grommets and reinstall them.

    Thanks for your recommendation!

    Now, is this recommendation to demo the racquet with or without lead added?

    As you might have seen in my earlier comments I prefer not to tinker with lead tape since i'm more of a rec player, so I would only hope that no lead would be necessary to generate a decent amount of power (if I provided it).

    315 is fine stock but the specs really invite customization. The 320 is a slightly heftier stick and is more solid IMO. Specs say its a 95 but when I lay a 315, 320 and 325 on top of each other, they look the same.

    Also while the 315 is a 16x19, the spacing is pretty tight in the sweet spot. Looks more like a 18x20 to me.

    Edit... Not sure why you are not interested in "tinkering" with lead tape unless you want to avoid yet another variable.

    You may want to consider the babolat pct. Similar specs to the tec, but the sw is a little higher. A little more pop, but still low powered. Nice feeling frame, not quite as soft as the tec, but still pretty flexy.

    Hi yes I too play with out any addition to the racq. No lead tape. So go ahead the power is not astronomical ...against heavy hitters you might get pushed around...but if you can generate a moderate amount of power yourself you should be good to go! So try it out.....

    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look into that for sure. Specs look good enough!

    That's great to hear!

    To be honest, I love to really swing out on my shots with a lot of topspin anyways, and would love to have confidence that I won't be hitting the ball long... So, the low SW and low power, combined with the spin potential of the 315 ltd. I think it would just be a fun racquet to play with.

    I play mostly recreationally against decent hitters, none too heavy, so I doubt i'll have to worry about being pushed around. I also plan to perhaps grab a new C10 Pro or Pacific X Force Pro as well to keep in the bag for fun, and in case I am up against bigger hitters, I can just switch it up.

    The Tec 315 Ltd. just sounds like so much fun :D

    I think the "lack of power" rep is a bad rap. Before I modified mine (after playing briefly with a RF97A, and deciding I liked a headlight frame with more swingweight) I used it completely stock for several months. Routine rally shots are definitely mid-paced and not penetrating, but I was amazed more than once at the power in the frame when flattening the ball out. Strung it with gut-poly hybrid.
