So. The racquetaholic never sleeps. That’s why I have two new frames to test out at home: the Tecnifibre Tfight 315 ATP Ltd. The model itself is not new, but from 2013 and the specs make a lot of racquet fans drool with its customizable weight, silicone already injected in the handle and low stiffness rating. People “in the know” call it a poor man’s PT57A and that’s why I’m keen to try it out in tomorrow’s hitting session.
As with all more interesting racquets – there is a huge thread on this one at the Tennis Warehouse Forum where customizations, string jobs and general opinions about the frame is being discussed. The Tecnifibre Tfight 315 ATP Ltd (maybe it’s time to shorten names?) comes in two string patterns – 16/19 and 18/20. I’ve recently started to gravitate towards the more open one and my latest stick of choice, as some of you regular readers know, is the Babolat Pure Drive Original which I now have up for sale.
Why am I selling the Pure Drive Original? Well, I tend to get bored with frames when I’ve figured out what they do for my game and how I need to adapt my technique to bring the most out of the racquet. The Pure Drive is a great frame, but it’s a lot of power to tame and that’s why I want play with a softer frame for a while so I can really swing out. Next time I’ll write about my own racquets here I’ll probably be playing with something else. But that’s kind of half the fun!
Here are the specs for the Tecnifibre Tfight 315 ATP Ltd 16/19. I will surely customize and play around with string and will update the post once I’ve done so.
