Replacement of my TFight 335 16x20

What racquet is similar to the Tecnifibre TFight 335 16x20?

Though I like my TF335 very much I am still looking for a frame that with more feel. I mean that kind of sensational feel and sense of connectionness when you hit the ball into the sweetspot with a midsize like a Prestige Mid.

I sometimes hit with my PC600 and I really love it. When I'm into my best shape it is the best frame I ever played with. Only I think it is a bit too demanding. I need a bigger sweetspot for a bit more forgiveness.

I also want a frame with the rock solid feel of the TF335 (and Wilson 6.1s) that makes this one a great volley stick. I still didn't discover a frame that has that similar solidness.

I'm considering frames like Pure Storm Tour, Head Prestige MP. Wilson BLX 6.1 95.

In other words I am looking for a Head Prestige Mid into a Midplus headsize.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I used the Pure Storm Tour Plus the last 1.5 years. It is a great frame but is demanding on the arm. It was a little weak at the net possibly due to the extended length but I'm mainly a baseliner so not a big deal. I'm now playing with the Pro Kennex 7G which is more arm friendly and feels better to me as well.

Gee,

I find the PK Redondo to be somewhat similar to the TF335 (i have both),....with the Redondo just being a little 'softer' (more flexy). :)

Hi OldButGame,

Do you mean the PK Redondo Mid or Midplus version?

The PK Redondos are indeed interesting frames because of the many rave reviews on this forum. I always wanted to try these ones. They are only very rare in Europe. That's why I purchased and tried the PK BA98 a while. A very comfortable frame but not as solid as the TF335 and therefore not as great at the net.

I have the MP Redondo (same as the TF335),...It may be a little less solid than the TF335 due to the flexiness,....but the difference is slight IMO. :)

i own a few pc600s, and have owned both head sizes of PK redondos...and they're not really comparable imo. midplus is not stable enough and mid is nice, but not as solid as the pc600.

as for a larger headsize frame, i think you might want to give the aero storm tour a shot. never been a big fan of the PST or any of the prestige mids, but after trying the aerostorm tour, it made me switch from the blx 6.1 95s.

Thanks Gasolina,
According the specs it is indeed a frame that I 'll consider to demo. Do you have experiences with this one? What is the swingweight of the 4D200T?
No experience, but I've looked into it constantly. There's actually a TW video review in youtube for the stick but idk why they don't link it here in website.

According to users, swingweight isn't as high as 352 as listed in the specs page. Matter of fact, in the racquet they tested for power zone testing the SW was only 341 I think.

That said, it would've still ripped my shoulder apart
