Tecnifibre create high-quality racquets and strings, but don’t really get the same attention as brands like Babolat, HEAD or Wilson. With the success of Daniil Medvedev, it is possible that this will change a bit. Together with an updated logo they have released a line called Tecnifibre TF40.
The Tecnifibre TF40 is a racquet created for players who crave control and feel. The design is a Tecnifibre classic, with the base white color and red and blue to symbolize the French flag. I think their paint jobs have been excellent and their design approach really stands out among other brands. The Tecnifibre TF40 comes in two weights: 305 and 315 grams unstrung. The head size is 97 sq inches and the string pattern is 18×20, which is pretty much as controlled of a spec as they come these days.

I am waiting for my Tecnifibre TF40 demos to arrive in Malta and I am really looking forward to this play-test. Especially since I enjoyed the response of the Tecnifibre Tfight XTC 305 so much. I will string them up with Tecnifibre Ice Code for that classy mostly-white look. I think a powerful poly string will help unlock the low power of the racquet. Not sure what the stiffness rating is, but I would guess is low-to-mid 60s strung.
Jay Clarke uses and endorses the Tecnifibre TF40. Not sure what his string job is though…
