Hakuna your tatas.
4 months later... nothing.... NOTHING!!!! NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't forget about great T FIght junior racquets that won't kill their developing arms.
Tecnifibre make awesome racquets, their string selection is elite, their apparel is well made and actually looks good, they should have a much greater market prescence than what they do here in Aus. Which is basically zero. And it is honestly hard to understand why.
It's like tecnifibre australia just really don't give a flying f**k at all
Here's the people we need to start harassing.

why bother. tecnifibre australia don't seem to give a stuff whether anyone buys their racquets or strings here.
Yes. Why bother... Great attitude... Typical apathetic Aussies...
tecnifibre australia franchise must be owned by The Big Lebowski
Well, wait until you try giving those guys your money for some ProKennex gear. Then you will know true apathy. Thus far, I haven't purchased anything overseas that I could from them but they're testing my patience, big league.
i had to send some NRG to a buddy in Mel... It wasn't cheap, but the second time he had family over in the US and they brought a crap load back for him... Sorry guys
I'd love to see more Tecnifibre racquets on the shelves in Australia. They make a great frame imo.
I'll have a Tec 315 Limited 16M (2013) available for sale soon... PM me if interested
What didn't you like about it?
I just received them... bought two and only need one... that's all... I now have both the 18M and 16M versions...
yeah I have both as well, everyone seems to prefer the 16m but I just can't hit that well with it, no matter how many times I crank it out of the bag and give it another go, the 18m is awesome
All the TW testers preferred the 18M and said that the 16M was more difficult to be consistent with. I have not had a chance to hit with them yet. Combination of shoulder injury (inflammation), stringer being away, and bad weather. Itching to go and give them a go...
The 16M I'm keeping had a 4 1/4 grip (they both do). I got some Twaron grips that I got some time ago which I was going to try and put on other racquets than the old Heads in order to "copy" the Twaron feel (or at least try to). Turns out they are very heavy to use as an entire grip and increase the grip size a bit, so I needed a smaller grip to start off with (all my other racquets are 4 3/8 or 4 1/2). So I took the 315 Limited 16M and applied the Twaron grip to the flat (wider) parts of the grip. That way I increased the weight and the size of the grip (and made it a bit more square - like a Wilson handle). I also added Tungsten Tape from about 2-4 o'clock, 8-10 o'clock and a bit at 12 o'clock. According to the "bounce the ball in the living room test" the racquet feels good. I'll see how it truly is when I hit the court. Weight wise, it's a beast... 374g (from memory), and if the grip doesn't feel right and it's too heavy I'll have to change the grip to a 4 3/8 and add less weight to the handle... But first thing's first... play with it as is.
The 18M I have to take to the stringer and then modify with weight in head and handle...
As I've said, I haven't had a proper hit with them yet. However, when I bounce the ball in the living room (at least with the 16M), the PT630 and the Radical Tours still feel nicer, if I'm being honest.
The main test will come when I take them both to the court and have a proper hit back-to-back...
