    Talked to the guys from Tecnifibre yesterday and it looks like Kristof Vliegen has changed to the actual 325 XL, ofcourse leaded up to his old balance and SW, they told me that they still keep his old Major's X-one's cos players can suddenly change their minds, especially when they have bad results...

    Good info...he really destroyed that racquet against Lubijic!

    Any other info you could share about TF players would be awesome, thanks!

    Well i saw the new Gisela Dulko racket, looks fantastic, can't say when it will come out but it's in the same colours as the rebound bags (pink etc...)
    Underneath still the TF 295.

    I just got the Technifibre Major X-1 recently. I have no idea about the head size, but it has very thin beam and feel really nice in hands. It hits heavy balls with dynamite plow-thru (if you hit the sweet zone, that is kind of relatively small). However, it's too stiff for me and a bit unstable on off-center shots. I can't lead it up anymore since it's already heavy. Anyway, it's a beautiful racquet.

    Nice found Suppawat, these are quite rare and hard to find in perfect condition! That's what Vliegen used most of his career but it seems now he switched to the new TF325, that counts for Janko Tipsarevic too. (before he used a Major Bullit frame)



    @Suppawat: the headsize is 98 sq. and 19mm contant beam.
