    I scored 2 of these for next to nothing.
    Definitely notice the extra swingweight, not used to the extra length though I think. Nice to have them in the bag.

    Noticed in your photos that you have an accuswing. How do you like it? How is the build quality? I have been considering buying one for some time now.

    Maybe that is the way they are bringing the racquets up to spec during QC. The previous generation had just the right amount of silicone injected into the handle -- again, one side only -- to get a perfect match to spec. Also, pallets come out of the mold with some varations in weight. I've seen 9 g and 14 g, and in both cases, the exact weight of the pallet half was written in marker on the pallet itself. The 9 g was paired with 11 g, the 14g was paired with 15g. Never seen a mismatched pair installed before.

    Older head pallets TK57 had a cavity in them -- presumably specifically for such fine tuning at the very last moment.

    Big time Head Classic 660 user, ventured in many directions in the last few years. Played 2013 315 limited edition and loved it, surgical precision. Thouht I needed more easy power so ventured over to prince tt100p, Yonex dr98 and extensively tried blade cv 16x19. All are great, all have real strenghts. This said, pulled the limited 315 back from the closet this week and got reacquainted with pinpoint accuracy, directional control. Maybe less pop but pop that matched my swing speed and intention. New paintjob coming out soon but will be giving the dc ltd version a shot using unstrung pro specs I’ve been blessed to get access to. Will report back. Thanks Tecnifibre...you truly seem to get the userX concept.

    New paintjob? Saw one with mostly white, doesn't look as good as current or previous one.

    Yeah, it's new since it hasn't been released yet. It's got a lot of white but one side is mostly black and red, the other has some red and the inside of the hoop has quite a bit of blue... so mostly white is a bit of an understatement... at least in my view... the good thing is we all have different tastes... won't be fighting over the same racquet.

    I love it..... and as a result I keep buying them (now have 3 in my bag........ I have added a little lead at 3,9 and 12 and do use an overgrip and dampener. Can't imagine why more people don't use this rqcquet.

    Thx for asking Jay. I haven’t had the chance. The only Tecnifibre frames I got to try enough to comment, outside the limited 315, are the T-Fight ATP Tour prepared 305 and T-Fight DC 305. Would’ve liked to hit the 320. I have a customized 315 ltd on the way at 326g unstrung. Will report back next week after more extensive hit.

    Just picked up a pair of 315 ltds (16m) last week, and am in love after my recent mods!

    Hoop:
    2.5g Total at 3 & 9
    2g Total at 12 under the headguard

    Handle:
    TW Leather
    6g Total distributed evenly along the four straight faces of the pallet
    OG

    Think the racquet is at 9 Pts HL with a beefed up swingweight now.

    I have 3 of the 18M's and I too added a little lead to the hoop at 3,9,12 bringing my total weight to 11.9 oz, balance is 7.5HL. Thought about a leather grip but wanted to keep weight under 12.................

    I have 3 of them and my advice is to grab them while you can.......They are really great player racquets ..... a tiny bit of weight in the head is all that is needed and the 315 LTD really plays well, extremely comfortable (very "old school").........They are foam filled and play very much like the Angell Custom TC series racquets.

    Where do you add the weight? 3 / 9 or 12?

    Man what a great deal on the LTD's going on! Haven't hit with the 2017 model but I love my 2013's, if I wasn't saving up for my wedding next year I would buy 2 or 3 right now. If your curious about these rackets scoop them up now while you can!

    I added a little lead at all 3 points ( 3,9,12) just enough that with overgrip and dampener the overall weight is 11.9 ...... all 3 of mine are 18 x 20 ..... the HL balance is still 7HL.

    Is the 2018 the same as the 2017 Limiteds? Will there be more after this model or is this the last of the Limiteds?

    I still think 2013 feel more classic in a sense. I like them more than the 2017 ones even though difference is subtle, to be honest. The newer ones feel stiffer to me. True for both 16x19 and 18x20. Probably the Dynacore in the mix. Just my $0.02 offcourse.

    Oh and congrats on the impending nuptials :)

    Used three different racquets in 18 yrs. Still own them. Discovered this site. Now use three different racquets every set. Collection, eh?

    2 new dc315s on the way, really hope the slightly stiffer feel is the tweak I'm looking for. Wish they came with leather grips though

    Could you request TW replace the original grips with leather for a fee?

    Too late for that now...

    I have a couple of spare TW leather grips from other racquets I've smashed, so I'll put them on. Tecnifibre leather grips are about $25au so don't really want to buy two of them, would've been nice of tecnifibre to include them stock to keep the theme, and save me money lol

    Salvaged Fairway & Balmforth leather grips from old racquets and swap them when needed. Had a few racquets like the Wilson HPS 6.0 95 with a stock leather grip.
