Is it one of the new ones or what? Does anybody know what it is?
I heard it's his old Fischer, but repainted...
So far it's a PJ on his old Fischer. Apparently TF bought the mold from Fischer. TF is introducing a new range of T Flashes, and his frame will be a PJ of one of those (the new T Flash 315).
Why couldn't Tecnifibre just keep their simple paintjobs on the new range? The latest ones look ridiculous. Someone will make a tidy profit snapping up the older (Tipsarevic et.al) sticks.
Yeah I know what you mean.
I still think the old 325 paintjob was the nicest, the 320 and 335 aren't bad, but the new ones are pretty poor.
I think something really simple in red and black would be perfect as the font Tecnifibre use is really good looking, that alone is enough to make the paintjob imo.
anyone have any pictures? i haven't seen any of the new pj's in a match so far.
definitely a Fischer.
Yea, sure does look like the Fischer headshape.
It's not a Tecnifibre!!!!
As said before: TF "rebuilded" Baggys Fischer racket. But they didn't have to buy the mold - it's a free mold and you can order this racket from every factory that opened this mold. There was at least one copy of this racket more than ten years ago. And now TF made his "new" T.Flash 315 from this mold.
that racquet looks pretty sick
The 325 paintjob was my least favorite, although I still liked it. The other two I love how they look.
A T Flash? Are you sure? I don't think a pro player would be using a T Flash.
After seeing those pictures, that racquet at least, looks not too bad to me. The pictures on the website are too small to see clearly.
What strings is Baggy using - still hybrid of Alu Power and Nat Gut? Those pics look like that. Which direction is it in? Alu Power Mains or crosses? and is it rough? What tension? Thanks
it's a little "Fischey" if you ask me
VT Pro 98 propably..
That is ONE awsome paint JOB....It must be a newest greatest racket technifibre has ever come up with.. what is Model number and name ??
...Well you could say the same that no one really uses the nPro stock. Bagdhatis is still using his old whatever mold
If anything if you check the Tecnifibre website, the new T-Flash that "Bagdhatis Endorses" is weighted up to 11.7 oz.
A good weighted player's stick, that looks sick, and has some sick specs. truth.
Here are close ups of the new 315.
Here is the new 320.
It reminds me of Japanese art.
yeah, what's with the samurai on there??? TF is a french company this doesn't make any sense - what's their new tech? SUSHI? time to fire their graphics department.
they look HELLA SICKKK
thats one cool stick
Thats very different. Why does it say L550?
I sat in the first row behind the baseline, several feet away from where the players return on the ad side, at Baggy's first round flameout at the FO.
I recall that his racquet looked different than the pictures posted in this thread. It looked like a Pure Drive clone, with a very wide constant beam (I estimate about 26mm). It looked to be very light by the way the ball came off his racquet -- he would take big cuts and the ball came off his strings without any sting, as if it were a 10-oz. granny stick.
I'll dig up my camera and see if I can post the pics. In the meantime, if anyone else has pics from that match, please post pics of his racquet to confirm this.
I think the 315 looks really sweet. The PJ is bold and nothing in the market is like it.
Worst paintjob I have ever seen. Asian faces on a racket? Disgusting.
uggh it looks so weird.. I really liked the weight and balance of the tfight 320 I wanna hit with one, better hurry to get the old paintjob.
One sweet stick--wonder how it plays????
I think it's one of the best PJ's I have ever seen--but to each their own in that regard....
Well....About the pj...It isn't THAT bad. But I do like the simple a lot more better.
I think it looks nice also. Its time to renew our Techinifibre player package but the new sticks arent available yet. May have to demo them first since the specs between the Tfight 320 are different from the new stick.
How is that a PJ? Its obviously a Technifibre TFlash 315 its a whole new model so obviously it would be a different head size and shape .
Baghdatis racquet at Roland Garros is the same racquet at Wimbledon. It has been the same racquet through out his career, the Fischer Pro No.1. The Fischer Pro No.1 and the Tecnifibre clone are a tapered beam 20-25mm beam width. The Pro No.1 and the Tecnifibre clone start at 20mm and at the tip becomes 25mm.
Tecnifibre's new T-Flash 315 is a clone of the Fischer Pro No.1.
Didn't Tecnifibre also used the same mold as the Dunlop Mfil 300 for the Tfight 320?
No, Tecnifibre did not. Tecnifibre used the Dunlop Pro Mold that Haas, Blake, and Berdych use for the Tecnifibre T-Fight 320 and T-Fight 335.
new tecnifibre range
I had a hit with the new range of sticks and thought I'd share my thoughts for anyone who is interested.
First the Flash 315, I had played with the Fischer this was taken from many years ago and it is basically the same. The balance seems slightly more headlight and the grip has the Tecnifibre shape but other than that it is as similar as you will get, I remember a write up in tennis magazine many years ago that described it as 'like a ferrari-you'd better know how to drive if you're going to use it'. That sums it up a players stick that moves through the air quickly with a small sweetspot and good control if you find it, but if you don't it will let you know. Having said that if you're able to handle more heft some lead in the right spots would really develop the way it plays.
The Fight 320,325 and 325xl are the revelations to me. The beam has clearly been widened and the technical sell is that the frame has been firmed up in certain places to increase the balls dwell time on the strings and I have to say that I normally take a lot of technical blurb with a pinch of salt.
The T fight 325 was to me a classic and the 320 and 320xl stiffer in the shaft and hoop, they are good sticks with a big following but I have always felt that the 325 was better.
The new sticks are the nearest I have hit to the old 325's, they have the softer feel but are a bit more powerful, it seems strange that a wider beam would still have that flex and it is slightly stiffer in the shaft but the feel is much more like their previous classic and I feel these will be seen as another great stick from them.
The other racquets in the Flash range are basically the old Flash frames with new paint jobs and similar to pure drives and the other T fights are lighter versions of the Feel 300 but again good sticks.
wowza! new tecnifibre sticks!
Yea thats no samuri! its a SUMO!
So this is Baggys model?
No it's not, he plays the T Flash 315. (PJ)
What model was that then?
Baggy is using this one.
Then why did he say this?
Thanks for the review - very insightful. I have been a 320 devotee for quite a while now, but always felt that I could do with a tad more power and a slightly more forgiving sweetspot, especially as I get older (and not any faster).
I look forward to take them for a spin when they become available. too bad the PJ is really not to my liking.
how does TF not get sued by Fish?
why would they? Fischer's contract with Baggy ended and he's playing under TF now.
If anything, consumers would be able to sue TF for claiming that Baggy's playing with a 315, which he's clearly not.
