    I just demoed the TF 315 and loved it, and am definitely going to make the switch. Anyone else use Technifibre? I've heard some good reviews from people and also some bad ones; they seem to be quite an up-and-coming racquet company though. Thanks in advance for the input.

    hit with 315 and 325 extensively. like them both. very solid sticks. give the nod to the 325 due to better serving with it.

    I've Been playing with the TF 315 for over a year now. It plays solid both from the baseline and at the net. It has good abilty to hit topspin given the 18X20 string pattern. I like how it plays up at net. It feels very solid and stable hitting volleys. It does well against pace as well.

    i am a high school freshman player and am looking for a new racket, i am new here but anyway, i was looking at the Babolat Pure Storm and then came across the Technifibre TFeel 305 and was wondering if that is a better racket compared to the Babolat

    I have hit with the storm and i thought it was terriable i think that the wieghting and balance in the storm is just awfull i have never meet anyone who liked the storm. I play with the Tfeel 305 it is solid and has great spin acess it is a fantastic racket

    I've played with the TF315 for nearly a year now and I can agree with Robkat. Is does give good spin even though its a 18x20. I used the i.pres mid+ before and the TF string pattern is slightly more open. I found that the rqt played better with a lower tensions and with softer strings.

    I just bought the T-Fight 325, it's a perfect racket.
    Great power, control and spin.

    How does the Tfight 315 compare with the LM Prestige(MP)?

    a little lighter, stiffer, more power. i thought the 315 was more like the i.prestige MP rather then the more flexy lower powered LM pres MP.

    I found the 315 to have a similiar feel to my Head i.prestige mid, but a little more pop. It is such a solid racquet and I can't wait for mine to come in. What do people use in their Technifibre racquets? I demoed the racquets with some type of Technifibre string, and I don't know if I should stick with that, or use Luxilon like I did in the i.prestige. I don't know if I can use a Technifibre string and get as much spin as with Luxilon.

    i would string the 315 with something soft and would string at lower tensions as uk skippy suggests...otherwise you could be in for a pretty harsh ride. the texalium (sp?) in there felt a bit like the twaron in the old prestiges to me, but a bit more harsh

    I am supprised at the bad Storm review. I have used it for a year or so now and I like it very much. I get great power, good control and it has a nice feel about it. I demod about a everything there is before selecting it. (Note , I used to use a Prince Graphite)

    Lol, I read your comparitive review on Tennis Warehouse. I felt that the stick was very solid, I didn't really feel that the racquet was as harsh as you suggested, but I respect the opinion. However I agree, as you also suggested, that the racquet feels very solid or raw at impact, so a soft string sounds to me. How about the hybrid in my signature?

    safin i have the signatures turned off. my joints and tendons have been beating tennis balls for many years...i think i am a little more sensitive to a harsh hit than many.

    I see, no problem, it was a good review; I use Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Rough for the mains and Prince Synthetic Gut with Duraflex for the crosses.
