As the title suggests T Fight has one of the biggest threads dedicated to it in 2013 I'm wondering how many of you are still using the 315 as their main stick and if not what did you change to?
Yah I am interested in that too. There was so much buzz for a few months that it was basically like a pro stock frame. I have a couple of pt57a and wouldn't mind putting a few of these in the closet so that when my current frames die out I can simply get the tecs out since I know my feelings on the 57a and would like to avoid the high cost of purchasing more when these ones are done.2014 and I still haven't pulled the trigger.
I'm interested to know if it is still able to be described as a current-day easier-to-swing PT630?
I'm still playing with the 16 mains version with 5 grams at noon. Like you, I've hit with a few other frames but nothing I've tried comes close to matching the feel of this racquet. I pulled out my old IG Prestige Mid a few days ago just for fun and put it back in the bag after about 5 minutes.Still using the 315 but have been flirting with other frames of late. Problem is everything is now judged against the tfight and nothing has stacked up yet. Very addicting plush feel that is not easy to replicate.
I bought a 16m from the TW used section and thought that it was worth doing. I had a 320 in my bag but never quite clicked as with it.Maxxply I noticed you are from Australia too. Just thought I would let you know that I made an enquiry with Tec in Aus whether this frame was going to come into Aus and the answer was no. I had a sponsorship at the time and there was still no way of getting them.
Have you tried the 315 with some lead? I had both for a few months as well. Adding lead solved that issue for me.I am switching back and forth between the 315 ltd (more control) and the tfight 320 (more power) depending on whether I need power or control that day. Planning on picking one soon and just sticking with it.
Switched back to my 57As. The TF is a nice frame, but it doesn't have the same feel as the 57...
Can you guys describe the mods (lead, silicone, etc.) and strings (type and tension) you guys added on your 315s? 18M or 16M?Nothing does and I keep coming back to them!
Why do everybody never stop tinkering with 315 Ltds? It bothers me every time I read about it. And then everybody go on to admit rather apologetically, "but it's very plush and comfortable"The reason I ask is because I have been tinkering with mine (18M) since November with varying degrees of success. I have yet to reach a setup that really wows me. Overall though, I find the frame very plush and comfortable though.
I set mine up the same way I have my 57's, I extend it to 27.5" and strung is 352g at 32cm balance. Never tried other set ups, but the TF had too much power and not quite as soft feel...
I appreciate the feedback guys.It's a plush racquet. Try it. It's tecnifibres pro stock racquet. Verdasco used it for years.
I nailed my optimal setup pretty fast - 4-5 grams at 12 and done.
I have gone back to 330 weighted sticks and was able to try and drop the tfight down to match. Unfortunately it just does not play the same at this weight - it really is best as a 12 ounce racquet for me.
But I used the same setup on mine for 7 months. no real tinkering needed.
Actually it was more of me getting my lazy butt back into shape. Wanted more pop to end points because I was slow. Dropped 15 lbs and the wanted the control of the 57 because the power came easier and I could stay in rallies longer. But you are correct, I was tinkering with static weight and balance, just not with my racquets...Right, so you stopped tinkering but went back to 57's
I compared my TF315 ltd with my Head IG Prestige MP and I cannot see any difference in size. So I also assume the head size is more like a 95 sq. inch.Thoughts about whether the 315 is a true 98 head size? I feel like plays (and looks) smaller? The head shape seems smaller/narrower than other 98s like the radical.
I think they have better feel.Are these similar to the Dunlop 4D 300 Tours? My Dunlops are starting to get worn down and am looking for similar playing frames. Thanks!
What kind of string did you use on the TF315?I tried the TF315 Ltd 18x20 but I think it is too muted to my taste.
Though it is a comfortable and vibration free frame I miss some of that crisp connected feel of my Head IG Prestige MP.
I experienced the same with Pro Kennex Redondo MP that has a low 57 RA flex as well. I hardly felt the ball when I hit into the sweet area with this racquet. Even without a dampener.
I guess I prefer a bit stiffer frames with a 60-63 RA flex that have a more connected and crisper feel.
I use the 16L, non-soft version. The spin and tension maintenance are great. They also never break...must be the dense string pattern because in my Aerogel 4D 200 Tours (16x19) I was breaking strings weekly.Solinco Tour Bite 19.
I hit both back to back for a few sessions and flex is definitely the largest difference. With the 320, the ball tends to explode off the string bed. The sweet spot is also larger and the power and spin is far greater.Can anyone compare the 16x19 models of the Tfight 315 and the Tfight 320? Any major differences? 5 grams isnt much diff in weight.
I agree. I find both to be great frames, but like you, the plush feel was the deciding factor.I hit both back to back for a few sessions and flex is definitely the largest difference. With the 320, the ball tends to explode off the string bed. The sweet spot is also larger and the power and spin is far greater.
At the end of the day I went with the 315, due to the flex and feel. Lead tape has bridged the gap on stability and lower tension has almost brought the power level to that of the 320. TB19 has helped increased the level of spin.
