Which racquet is Daniil Medvedev endorsing? Tecnifibre is now releasing a new model, the Tecnifibre Tfight ISO 305.
What is new in the Tecnifibre Tfight ISO 305 compared to the Tfight RS 305 model it replaces? Thanks to the ISOFLEX system it utilizes a variable beam stiffness to create a more forgiving and consistent string bed. The RS beam is still there and like other Tecnifibre racquets, the Tfight ISO 305 is injected with foam for more comfort and stability.

The swing weight on average spec looks slightly higher than the predecessor. That will allow stability and power, but might not appeal to intermediate players as the racquet can feel heavy to get through the air.
Otherwise the specs of the racquet look relatively unchanged besides the stiffness being slightly lower. However, the RA rating doesn’t tell the whole story, it all depends on where the racquet flexes and how much it flexes in different locations.
If you like head-light racquets, you will need to add a leather grip or some weight on the handle. Sadly, Tecnifibre does not yet provide a so-called trap door at the end of the racquet handle to be able to add silicone or other weight into the handle. The reason might be that the racquet is already foam-filled there, but it would still be good to have the option.

Who is this racquet for?
If you’re an intermediate to advanced player who likes a heavier-feeling racquet with good stability and control, I think the Tfight ISO 305 should be on the demo list. I’m yet to test this racquet myself, but will do it later this week (at the time of publishing) and if it’s as good as the RS 305 (currently on sale at Tennis Warehouse Europe), I think I’ll like it. But it will be fascinating to compare the two as many model updates these days only contain minor updates.
I think the racquet has a versatile spec for players looking for control, so whether you’re an attacker or defensive player, it should be able to deliver. However, clay court players who want loads of top spin potential, should look at a more spin-oriented racquet.
