Hold off on the technical jargon – what will it do for my game?
The TFlash 315 is perfect for an aggressive player, capable of producing great pop from the baseline and extremely forgiving thanks to a sizeable sweetspot. On your side even when you hit off-centre, the racket also features a 16×19 string pattern that encourages heavy topspin, which in turn facilitates control. Coming from a French brand that prides itself on developing technology for players of the future, this fabulous frame certainly suggests that Tecnifibre’s stars of tomorrow will be gracing the Slams sooner rather than later.

Go on then, give us the technical bit
SpeedFlex technology incorporates a revolutionary shaft design that provides a 10% increase in stiffness without sacrificing comfort and control, while the RSD (round section design) technology ensures a round beam that increases resistance to twisting. The integration of silicon in the lay up of the handle limits the bad vibrations that come from the frequent use of polyester strings, ensuring greater comfort.

In English?
Like to keep the ball inside the lines? (It helps, right?) This stick is a power-player’s right-hand man when it comes to dictating play from the back of the court.
