They really developed that awful ping with racquets introduced following the 2009 models. Hopefully, they will take a step back. The stiffness ratings look promising.Hmmm the specs in racquetfinder are different from the website. Stiffness is way low at 61 and 59 respectively. Interesting if the metallic ping of the Tfights make an appearance.
Swingweight is so low too. I thought it'll be close to around 5-6 pts HL strung since the unstrung balance at the website was at 8 HL
Lol if that's the case then this must be the best thing that happened to them.
Hehe I don't think there's any other racquet out there at 315 unstrung 98 square inches in a closed pattern, thin beamed too!
Had a hunch they might just be using an old mold. Those ridiculously low flex numbers just feels like something from the past.
It's more like they took a page from Babolat PS Ltd by introducing thinner and flexier limited version with leather grip.They did a version of the old Dunlop 300 tour?
The grip is red leather!
How about swing weight / plowthrough on ground strokes?I got a chance to hit with the 315 in the open string pattern. Serves as an intermediate between the Pure Storm weight and the Pure Storm Tour weight. Very nice stick to hit with, I found more depth on my shots than my current Aero Storm GT racket. I have a feeling I'll be picking up a few of these in the future. I don't know why Tecnifibre would limit the production of these, spec wise it'll be the best stick that they offer.
Not as much plow as my Aero Storm, but I do have it leaded with 6 grams in the head to add stability. I would definitely add lead to the 315 if I were to make that my stick of choice. I guess I didn't notice a metallic ping noise, but maybe if I had prior knowledge of that I might have noticed it, I guess I didn't know to look for it, therefore I didn't notice it.How about swing weight / plowthrough on ground strokes?
And is there any metallic ping to it?
Would TW be doing a review if this was a limited production as mentioned above. Specs look good, except the low swing weight.
Good observation. Not a lot of deep balls. But they all said it needs lead at 12 at the very least. Interesting they all seem to prefer the dense pattern. I normally play with a 16/19 so it will be interesting to see the differences myself.looks very low powered, everyone hitting very short balls, but interesting racquet, would love to test, but don't see it available in europe yet
And here is the answer:I wonder what is the closest Head or Dunlop mold for this one? Would be interesting to see it compared against Head PT280 and Dunlop 200T with some swingweight customization
That's great! Now, let's find out optimal lead placement...Love the PT630. That's a good comparison...I'd say the feel/flex/softness is pretty similar between the PT630 and TFight 315. The PT is definitely heftier, so it's not as maneuverable but has a little more pop and plowthrough. However, with a little customization that can easily be fixed with the TFight.
I am not sure if you have realized that the racket did not ship yet and is estimated to ship on February 5.Anybody else played with this racquet yet? Any more comparisons? I am thinking about making this my next stick, so I would love to hear more feedback on the racquet!
I can telly now..it is what the old TF used to be...I do realize, however some (somehow!) get some early because of their connections. Like Tennis_Enthusiast said he got to play with the open pattern version.
So I was asking for some people like that to maybe give some more information.
I look forward to what you say about the racquet as well though.
I am getting impatient. haha
Never tried any when they started the VO2 stuff...I am not sure how the old TF used to play as I have only played with the 2011 TFight 325 version.
For this reason, all information about the racquet will be incredibly useful for me.
Could you maybe compare what the old TF felt and hit like compared to the more recent ones?
