    I demoed a newer tecnifibre and found it feels like a cross between head and wilson. I think I read that older tecnifibres were more like head grip shapes.

    so a newer 4 3/8 TF ( TFight 320, 335) would be about the same as a 4 3/8 wilson?

    the tfight 320 seems really interesting because of its 11.7 ounce weight but its low 307 swingweight.

    the older ones i have held in my hand (325, etc) were pretty much exactly like head's. not sure if they changed it, but its doubtful.

    in 2006 the tecnifibre grips changed from head-like to wilson-like.

    The Tfight 305 I hit with in a comparative review in 2006 (which was a 2005 model I guess) felt like it had a Volkl sort of grip shape--sort of square but not too much like a LM Prestige grip, which I could not stand.

    I think the TF 320/335 grips are equivalent to Dunlop grips...same mold...

    the old frames (325, etc) were indeed rectangular like head.

    you are right.
