Gavna - how is the HDX tour string? I use X1B, like it a lot, but saw the specs on the HDXT and am VERY intrigued by the string.The SW should be 322 per TF for the new 325
I just strung up 4 new 315s with HDX tour (plus string-a-lings).......going to go back to the RDC Monday and retest all. Specs per TF are 330 SW
HDX tour has caught my eye, how does it compare to full poly?I've been trying different setups - I like both Origin and HDX tour in the 315s. HDX is great stuff
Swing weights seem to vary quite a bit in my experience - I've seen a pair of racquets that are with 2g and 2 balance points but the swing weights had a difference of 11 kgcm^2The variance is strange...........I'm going to restring tonight and slap em a Babolat RDC machine tomorrow
i've strung my T fight 315 with Dunlop Balck Widow 1,26, it weights 314 grams unstrung and it's 10 points headlight. Strung weight is 330 grams without dampener and overgrip. Anyway,it's a great racquet , offering a solid and plush feel at impact, semi-firm but very comfortable frame..Well I just strung up one and slapped it on the RDC.......I got SW of 320
That's with HDX Tour 17G, tourna grip, Luxilon O dampener........hmmmm
Sounds comparable to the 320 that it replaced.Played with new 315 Dynacore today. String pattern is very open so it is spin friendly. Very powerful racquet for players racquet. Much more power then 315 Ltd and much more stiffer feel.
Control is ok but nothing special. It Plays Like modern racquet but is very arm friendly, no hard vibration at all. Somthing Like Tflash 300. It is very maneuverable.
I usually play with Tour 100 16x18 and new 315 has little bit more power. I'm playing more effective with Tour 100 but will continue demoing New TF 315.
I've put SPPP due to it's lower power to see if I can tame the power of the racquet.
I appreciate the feedback, Spinovic! The HDX Tour specs are similar to X1B but it looks amp'd up (in a good way). I'm going to have to try it out.I love HDX Tour. I may like it better than Biphase...I'd love to string both up for a direct, side-by-side comparison. You didn't ask me, but I figured I'd chime in anyway.
Not sure where you get that from. The 315 Ltd sells in miniscule numbers compared to the rest of the Tecnifibre range. TWE for example, have had them on sale for half price for some time now and still haven't managed to clear their stock.It's crazy how successful the 315 ltd has been for Tec.
The Tec rep implied that the Ltd was more successful in the United States...so maybe it's appeal is more regional.Not sure where you get that from.

I can buy that. The 320 was listed as a 95 sq in frame. The 315 is listed at 98.Even bigger Sweetspot and Spin, IMHO, and greater on serve.More maneuverablity, also.
I contacted TWE about purchasing a Tfight 315 ltd in grip size 3 since the website mentioned they are out of stock but due in stock in a couple weeks. TWE replied that they will not be getting any new tfight ltd's at all. So I guess they are sold out.Not sure where you get that from.

To be honest, i've just spent 3 hours on the court with the new 315, but first impressions are very positive. Very solid and stable despite the low swingweight, this helps to bring the head of the racquet quickly through the contact zone, and the very open pattern also translate into massive bite and huge spin to the ball.I can buy that.

I say listed, because having owned a 320 and 315 Ltd, they looked exactly the same laid on top of each other.
In any case, it's listed slightly bigger, and slightly lighter, which should translate to your conclusions.
I'd love to try out some of the new Tecs
A concern I had was would there be lack of stability due to the low swing weight; sounds like that may not be an issue.To be honest, i've just spent 3 hours on the court with the new 315, but first impressions are very positive.

Irvin are those strung or unstrung flex ratings? Thanks!The 2015 rackets have been released through customs and should be available Mar 20. The new rackets have about a 10 point flex increase as follows:
280 - 67RA
295 - 67RA
300 - 68RA
305 - 69RA
315 - 69RA
325 - 68RA
285 - 69RA
300 - 68RA
315 - 69RA
265 - 67RA
275 - 64RA
295 - 66RA

Accordings to my rep that is about 10 points stiffer than the prior models.Isn't that pretty much the same flex as prior models?
Tec Rep in email said:You may know already, but our 2013 TFights had a good amount of flex to them, which supplied a lot of power, but only if you had a big enough swing to help generate that power. The NEW 2015 TFights, are on average, 10 points more stiff than the 2013 version, which allows the power without having to have such a big swing. This allows a player at a much lower level, i.e. 2.5, 3.0 to be able to use the NEW TFights. The following are the stiffness levels/ratings for all our NEW TFights, as well as, all of our other up to date racquets:...
Yeah, I don't know how they'll actually feel, but they are pretty much in the same ballpark as previous versions, whether you look at TWs specs or the specs from Tecnifibre themselves.Hm, that's strange isn't it? TW has the prior TFight models flexing out in the high 60's when strung (minus the ltd editions of course). The numbers Irvin's supplied are in the same range unstrung, meaning the strung models should have a lower RA. And yet the Tec rep says the new TFights are 10 points stiffer? If that's the case, and they're taking out the silicone, I wonder how these sticks will feel on impact :?.
Have you had any more time with this, Id love it if you (or other users) could do a quick but more detailed review , especially in comparison to the tfight Vo2 320 Max.Even bigger Sweetspot and Spin, IMHO, and greater on serve.More maneuverablity, also.
I have been playing with the Radical MP line, picked up a friends TFlash (315) one day and had that exact thought "this feels like cheating". It's so easy to hit a super heavy ball. I've not played with the Fights but the Flash is definitely worth a look....
I was thinking lately of switching to an Aeropro drive just because its soooo easy to use that its like cheating, but I'm a Teccy at heart and would miss them. Is this new dynacore 315 frame the perfect solution at the perfect time. Tell me folks? Also is the feel similar on the 315 Dynacore to the Vo2 Max320 as I'm so used to the feel that I hate most other frames now.
Give it more than a few daysOk so nobody was telling me so therefore I've got a demo of the T-Fight Dynacore 315. from TW. This is quite the most stunning racket I've ever used.
Wonderful. The perfect racket. I knew it would exist one day.
Well its funny you should say thatGive it more than a few days
This is just TFs version of the Pro Staff 97. Almost identical specs.
But it's no magic stick. Still takes some talent to wield it effectively.
Glad you like it though...TF makes quality products.
