Discussion in 'Racquets' started by jdeloach, Dec 30, 2006.
I added 2 grams each at 9 and 3, 4 grams total, for torsional stability.
Just curious Has anyone weighed their 325. Mine are slightly diff. in length but way diiferent in manuverbility. I need to waeigh mine very soon..........I need to see where mine fall
Don't post drunk dude. :grin:
on a different note, jdeloach, are you still playing with Tecnifibres or are you a 100% Yonex guy?
No they don't
My son stole my 320 and loves it! Can I still be in the club while I have to wait to order a new one?
Anyone demoed or played the TFlash 310?
Im seriously comsidering getting this racquet but the lack of reviews/feedbacks is holding me back.
BTW,dies anyone know the beam width of the 310?
Our friends at TW posted it at 22mm at first,but now changed it to 24mm.
Can I join the club? Three TF335s (16x20 pattern).
sweet! got 2 of those and love them, even hough I've been playing with the 320 lately.
Anybody still enjoying their t-fights? Or is everyone tired of clubs?
Im still enjoying mine even after messing with other sticks. I still seem to play my best with the 320. Im still hoping to pick up 2 more for cheap. Perhaps even customize one with a little lead.
Tired of clubs, not of the sticks - quite the contrary.
I'm playing almost exclusively with my TF320's (with lead at 3,9 and 12).
Absolutely love them.
I demo'd for 2 months strait.
The T fight 335 ended the search. Love it.
Now the search for strings...:wink:
My 3 racquets currently have in them:
I started with the flexpoint prestige mid and went to the tfight 320 and then the tfight 335. nyc, I was looking that you place lead at 3,9, and at 12 o'clock on the tfight 320. Do you counter weight at all? I would prefer to play with the 320, bit its too light.
I thinking of stringing the tfight 335 with x one biphase 17g on the cross and red code 17g on the mains - good multi, mono combo I'm using on my ksix one 95 xl.
I am in, 335 16x20 full pro redcode 17 at 57 Still have to personalize it.
OK anyone hit with both the 315 and 305....I am not sure which to demo...?
How is the 68 stiffness in the 305? is it too powerful or does it work??
No I didn't counterweight. My resulting balance is 5pts HL and resulting weight about 338g strung. It feels pretty similar to my 335's but adds a bit of oompf on the serves.
nyc, thanks for the info...I'll get out my 320 and experiment with some lead. I'll see what balance I get on the viper board.
nyc, I'm curious about how much lead you added, because 338g is exactly what I've weighed my 320 16x20 at. I don't have any lead on it. It does have an overgrip and multifeel 17 with a dampener. Balance is 9pts hl by my measurement.
I don't have a postal scale, so I estimated the weight to be at 338 or thereabouts based on lead + strings + overgrip. Might be a bit off, as I assumed base weight to be what's listed on TW.
Oh, I see. Thanks. I have an analytical balance at my work that I use to weigh my racquets.
Was just a little concerned that if I decided to pick up an extra 320 it would be quite different as far as mass. Although I suppose that at my level a little variation really doesn't matter that much.
Hey guys....can i chime in....ive got 4 325's jacked to about a little over stock 335's...but 2 35's...with 8 ...6 inch strips @3..9.....the thing just explodes!!....solid solid!!
I have two that come it at 348.5g (two lead strips that run between the 3rd cross from the top to the 3rd cross from the bottom -- about 10' or 5g total) I have not counter weighted the frames, frankly I thought they swung too easy stock weight when I got tight( I tend to swing out under pressure )...don't know if I'm done adding weight, but grounds strokes are sweet and they serve absolute bombs now...
anyone using lead with the 335?
Can I join? I've got 2 - 335s coming in this week - very anxious to hit with this stick. Does anyone add lead in the hoop? I'm thinking of adding maybe 6gms before I even start using it.
I have been playing exclusively with the PS 6.0 95 (346gms) with 12gms of lead running from 9-11. I like the feel of a heavier ball that lead provides. It's much less head light but I can still volley well and I can last about 2 hours before wearing out. I really love my PS but I was curious.....
Hey guys, I just hit with the T-Fight 335 18 X 20 and the T-Fight 320 today, I can't remember the pattern on the 320 though. The 335 was OK, but not head light enough, and not heavy enough, with lead I think it might be quite good. I hate the 320 though, it's WAAAAAY to light for me, I just couldn't get any plow through on it. For reference, my sticks are about 13.8 oz and about 18 points head light. TF makes good sticks though, they just need a little meat on their bones.
that's why I love the 320, as it leaves plenty of room for customization, and it PURRS beautifully with some "meat on the bones"
Just got my Tfight 315 today just barely in time for my high schools conference tournament. Love it!
welcome to the boards!
Also, let me know if you need another one.
So I got my tiny and accurate scale and weighed all my sticks - and the results were surprising...
TF320 (1) = 345g with lead
TF320 (2) = 338g with SAME amount of lead, but diff strings
(i was spot on with my guess)
TF335 (1) = 362g stock
TF335 (2) = 356g stock, diff strings
I will have to take measurements next time I restring to see if the strings make that difference or if it's the tolerance in the racquets.
Then again, 6-7g difference in overall weight is probably less of an issue than say, slight variance in how the grip feels.
I have to admit that the T-Fight 320 (16X20) is a GREAT stick and have used them since late summer 2006. Does this make me an official member?
Have a good weekend,
Does anyone have experience with the 320 and 325?...i sold my 325 in hopes of finding a lighter stick with somewhat similar characteristics. Does the 320 feel alot lighter to swing?? I dont want a puredrive type racket so maybe go down to the 305 or 315??
Thanks for the welcome nyc and I certainly would be interested in getting a spare!
To nhstennis: while the 315 is the only Tfight I have hit with I would imagine that the less head-light balance and resulting higher swingweight might not give you that same feel with the lighter weight you're looking for. My advice would be to try it out and see what you prefer. I probably demoed 10 racquets before settling on the 315.
Also does anyone have suggestions on what to string my racquet with? I bought it strung with the NRG2 17 at 60 lbs but they tend to move and I don't feel like I can hit out on the ball without losing control.
how is spin production from the closed patern of the 315???
Ive actually found the 315 to be quite spin friendly. I've been able to get much more topspin on groundstrokes and serves than my old Babolat Soft Drive which had 16 mains and just as much as other 16 mains rackets i tried.
Right now im planning on demoing from tw and dont know which tec racket to choose(i have to make room for other makes as well). Does any one have personal comparisons of Tecnifibres lighter rackets with some similar rackets??
cmatt: what other sticks did u demo???

I want in! I have two 335's and love them just got the second with red code in it - very nice. Also I just picked up the technifibre 12 racquet bag also very nice.
I have two 335's 16x20 they are great. The first w/babolat syn gut the second I just got from tennis warehouse and it has Red Code 17 @ 57. Very nice racquets I had alittle problem really bombing serves for a while but it seems to be working out just taking a while. Great sticks!
Finding this thread excited me a lot:lol: So much talk about the 320 and the RDS 001!!! What a perfect place for me. I'm absolutely dying to try out the 320 16 main. I can't wait!!!
Count me in. I'm the proud owner of the T-Fight 335, 16X20. Also, got a Tecnifibre bag. Both are quality.
Could you perhaps post some pictures of your bag? I would thank you very much.
Noveson, I'd be happy to do that. It'll have to be later this weekend. It's late and my camera doesn't have batteries, in addition I don't know if I even have batteries to put in it. If I don't get home to late tomorrow from the in-laws, I'll post them then, otherwise look for a few pics on Sunday.
If anyone else happens to have the new style Tecnifibre bags and would care to post some pics before I do, please feel free. I'm sure Noveson will appreciate it.
Haha yes I would. Not a big deal, if you have some free time then it would be appreciated. Thanks.
How is the t-fight 320 18x20 compared to the Fischer M1 pro?
I might be in too, just recieved word I got a preferrred package from tecnifibre and am looking at the 320
So what strings are you owners of the TF320 16x20 using?
I've been using Poly mains/Syn Gut Crosses, with various Polys.
I love the response, feel and control I get, but really dislike the lack of durability. Generally I don't pop the strings, but the string bed goes flat and dead on me to the point where control goes south.
I am ready to try different setups - any recommendations?
Full Poly? Full Multi? Weedwhacker Line? Just live with it and string more frequently?
At first, sorry for my very bad english. It`s a long time i am write any word in english. So i hope you understand me.
I am playing just in time an TFeel 305 racket with 16x19 strings. This racket give me 95% an good feel. But not absolut perfect for me. The racket how perfect for me, is the wilson nBlade98. With this racket i feel good. But when i played the nBlade, i will become some problems in my arms. I change the string etc. but it was the nBlade, who was nod good for my arm.
The TFeel 305 was very comfortable for me - so i have no arm problems.
But the feel vs. the nBlade was "only" 95%. I am a perfectionist, so i search for other racket.
First i play the TFight 320 in 18x20. A great racket, but to hard and to good for me. So the racket plays better then i.
The TFight 315 was very nice. But a little, but only a little uncomfortable fpor me. The racket has a great control and great power, but it s a tick too much uncomfortable.
So. At last my question. I will look for the TFeel 18x20. When i look on the technicals, i will see:
nBlade 98 ~ TFeel 305 (18x20)
The same weight.
The same string build.
Ok, frame 21mm vs. 22mm.
Whats about the feeling with the TFeel 305 18x20. It plays absolutly otherwise than the 16x19 racket? It s a big range with the TFeel 305 in 16x19 and 18x20? Or the two rackets are the same? Feel i the different much?
Thanks for answers!
i have two T-Fight 335's 16x20
