Background to the Tecnifibre T-Fight 300
The T.Fight range is the pure signing of one of the youngest brands in the rackets world. Inspiration from the traditional oval head and square section, which have shaped generations of competitors, to provide a competitive racket with controlled power. The rectangular section combined with the dynamic stringing pattern make this an essential racket for the aspiring generation; New balls, please!
Softer feel for muscle integrity and less fatigue. Better and quicker communication to your hand. Solid construction for long lasting performances. Exclusive PU construction for the head & handle areas. Higher dissipation of the vibrations for more comfort
Dynacore: Unmatched combination of flexibility and torsion stability. Constant feel and long lasting performance for aggressive players
Synergy Link: Construction of bumper gromet made of polyurethane (PU), which offers 18% additional shock absorption for more comfort.
The play test
“I thought the head was pretty heavy in comparison to the handle. So, whenever I was pushed out wide or running anything down, when I tried to get around it I felt the head was still behind me. That made me mistime balls and I found it kind of pushed you to play the line instead of cross court.
“I found it a little bit harder to whip up spin, with this head, trying to get that necessary rotation was a lot easier with a racket like the Mantis,” explained Will.
“It might suit somebody else with impeccable timing, perhaps a flat hitter without too much topspin, because if you’re in position, hit it sweet, then this will fly. Passing shots with this were unbelievable, you could just stand there and swing. I was really drilling it so the power is up there, but maybe just off the level of control we need.”
