    I have seen previous threads about them having same molds and so on. Anywyas, i got my Tfight 320XL from TW recently and with it came a extra sett of grommets. On the plastic that the grommets where protected by there was a sticker with som information about the grommets. one of the things it said there was "Mold: PT205". Does anyone know if this is the name of the same mold used on the tfights as some Dunlop rackets (mfil 200 plus?) wich has been previousley discussed?


    Here are some pictures:

    I believe the Mfil 200 97 is 16x19, not 18x20.

    Yes, but the mold (geomotry) is the same.

    Be interesting to see if they did in fact use the T-fight mold for the 16x19 Mfil 200. Perhaps someone who has both can compare them.

    Its a while ago but if my memory serves me correctly, the HM 200g was PT98 and the HM 300g was PT099. It is highly unlikely that DSIL would be sharing any of its tooling with Technifibre.

    I have used both the Dunlop 200 mfil and now use the Tecnifibre 320 they hit very similiar .But the 320 definetely feels stiffer.I dont think they are the same mold though.What is suprising is how different sites have different specs and different string tension recommendations on the 320.
