    I remember Aaron Krickstein using Tecnifibre way back when and I instantly became a TF fan.

    I haven't got a chance to experiment at all with my 320. What would you reccommend trying?

    I'm an allround player and I love to go to the net...
    I'm playing with Fischer M-speed pro 98 UL but I was wondering if a T-Fight 295 could be a good alternative for me...everyboby speaks about the Tflash 290 but I'm wondering if the Tfight could be more multifunctional ...?

    The T Feel 305 is what I would look at if I were you fenschlive. That I think is the most similar to the M Speed.

    Hello TecnifibrePlayer.
    Indeed the TFeel 18x20 playes better than the TFeel 16x19.
    It has recently been tweaked by an ex Wilson engineer (now working for TF) and gives a more collected feeling.

    Okay so I suck at taking pictures, what can I expect my digital camera is about the size of my tv:)

    It's a Babolat VS grip. I love them, they are so soft.

    I've been demoing sticks since a decision to move on from my beloved T10VE MP frames. Liked the FXP Prestige MP ( but small sweetspot), Microgel Pro (but slight arm pain) and the RDS 001MP (nice frame, a little under powered, good sweetspot). I have spent the last two weeks playing quite a bit with the TFight 335 (16 x 20) and absolutely love the results. Arm comfort, nice power, great control, and nice spin. The high static weight of about 12.3 oz. and the nice swingweight in the mid 320's is a good match for my game. VERY crisp volleys and a serving machine. I played an open semifinal doubles match tonight with the TFight and we are on to the finals...I haven't lost serve with this frame in the last two matches (and yes, I know about "honeymoons"..;) ). I have decided to make the switch and join the club. I have two frames on the way.

    Sorry to bump this thread up a little but I have a question.

    Which of the T-flights would be the best racquet for myself. I am 15 and coming off a shoulder injury. I'm thinking about the T-Flight 320 16x20. Could I have some feedback on which T-Flight I should get?

    Yeah, sorry apparently I can't read today. The only problem is the closet place that I can try it out in is probably about an hour away and I'm not sure about demoing them from TW. Anyone else have an opinion about this racquet because I got the competition package thing from Tecnifibre.

    Check out their website. Looks as if their coming out with an exteded T-Fight 320xl and T-Flash 310xl and a new T-Feel 300. It looks like only the the T-Feel 300 has plans for release in the states.

    If the 300 has a little less power than the 290 or 310 I'll be getting one.

    For right now, I settled for Kirschbaum Comp 17 mains and Gosen Micro 17 Crosses. Very happy with blend of comfort, control, power and spin.

    The strings I hav feels pretty good for flat hitting.

    320 and 335 are on my demo list.

    Can the 320 (16 X 20) be considered as a Prestige with an open string pattern?

    I've been looking around for racquets and found that I needed a racquet to be low on the stiff scale, with an open string pattern, and with some heft behind it. TFight 320 fits this bill perfectly. Now I have a question: How does the 320 (or 335) compare with the Dunlop AG 200 and/or 300?

    I liked the open string pattern and flex of the AG300 but it was too light, while the AG200 gave me that weight but the string pattern is too dense. Is there a huge difference in play betwen the TFlight 320 and teh AG300 (they seem to be more comparable)?

    The big difference to me was the spin potential. Which the 320 had a lot more of. They play pretty similarly besides that in my opinion.

    Voltron I sent you an email to the address you provided in the other thread.

    PackardDell, I guess you could consider the 335 16 main as a Prestige with an open string pattern. Not exactly like that but I could see where the comparison came from. The 320 is exactly the same just easier to swing.

    Is the Tflight 320 comfortable on the arm? Does it have a nice flex/feel?

    It is a lot more comfortable than most of today's frames, to me it just has a really classic feel.

    Has anyone tried both the 320 16*20 and 18*20? I'm leaning towards the 18*20 for more control..

    yes, demoed both, but liked the 16x20 a lot more. Still had plenty of control but tons more spin, surprised me, as I was coming from a 18x20 Prestige MP.

    besides the open string pattern, are there other differences you noticed? eg: is the weight distribution the same or is it totally different ?

    I've had a chance to hit with the TFights and the best one by far for me re: stability, manueverability, and power was the 335 (16 x 20). Nice 12oz plus mass with perfect headlight balance. I think the swingweight was low 320's. Serving/volleying was a dream. Nice classic feel. Tecnifibre is making some fine frames IMO.

    I have been playing with the 335 (16 x 20) for the past few weeks and have not been disappointed. For me, the swingweight is perfect and I feel as though it is in the low 320's; and the stick has some nice pop and allows me to create good ball action. This weekend I also had a second hit with a TFight 320 (also 16 x 20) and while it was a nice frame I felt as though the 335 blew it away. Although, to be fair I probably should have leaded up the 320. The 320 had a nice sweetspot and swung very (too) light for me. Just not enough mass and I could not hit as heavy a ball as with the 335. I could punch volleys much better with the 335 and could also kick some nice serves better with the 335 while still having a good flat bomb. I have not seen any problems with the static weight of the 335 (about 352 grams strung w/overgrip) during long singles matches and I was also pleasantly surprised at the quality control from Tecnifibre - three frames all within one gram of each other when strung and overgripped. Just my thoughts from some recent hits.

    One of my favorite racquets was the old Hyper Pro Staff 6.1 which was a 16 x 18. The 335 (16 x 20) reminds me very much of that stick. Very headlight, over 12 oz. static weight but easy to swing. Very good power and spin along with mass. I thought that the k6.1 95 swung a little heavier for me and just did not have the pop and maneuverability that I found with the 335. However, the k6.1 95 did create some good action on the ball and felt very solid. Just my two cents.

    I agree with you re: the HPS 6.1 and the TFight 335. Very similar sticks. I am waiting on a demo of the 335 with 18 x20 and also the 320 version. I did need to use a bit more topspin on groundstrokes to keep the ball in play with the 335 open pattern racquet versus my LM Prestige but I found that the TFight sure hit a solid ball. I am also going to compare those to the FXP Prestige MP and the Boris Becker 11 (which I am really looking forward to trying!)

    In my experience the q/c is great. I purchased three TFight 335, 16x20 frames separately and the variance in weight between the three was within a gram or two total.

    For those of you who have played with the TF320 16*20 or 18*20, can you give me a quick rundown of how it compares with the Fxp Prestige Mp?

    How do people feel about the overall thickness of the red Tecnifibre replacement grip that comes with 320/335? Is it thin like many of Head and some Volkl grips? Specifically, how does it compare with Gamma Hi-Tec replacement grip? Thanks.

    Can any of you T-Fight 320 or 335 users make a comparison between those rackets and a Prince Original Graphite mid. I am talking about things other than the obvious head size difference. Thanks.

    I called TW today re: TFight's availability and they indicated that they are not getting any more in on the 335's and 320's that they are currently selling, or sold out of. Does anyone know if the TFights are being discontinued?
