Like Tecnifibre’s 325 and 320, the T-Fight 315 is Tour Prepared: Silicone is now injected into the handles, which the company says increases comfort and feel. Tecnifibre has also raised their quality control to ATP-level standards (+/-four grams), allowing players who buy multiple racquets, just like the pros, to match their sticks to the same exact specifications.
How It Tested
The T-Fight 315, upholding several old-school traditions, features a leather grip, thin beam and flexible construction, befitting all-courters and net artists who value precision and feel. Advanced playtesters approved of the stick’s dexterity in rapid-fire volley exchanges, as well as its keen feedback, which many said facilitated short angles and drop shots. In the backcourt, the 315’s pop fell short of that of many thicker-beamed racquets; still, playtesters claimed that they could generate a good amount of racquet-head speed, which, coupled with the stick’s responsiveness, allowed them to hit deep, well-placed shots. In a final twist, the 315 is available in two different string patterns: 16x18 and 18x20. As expected, the open string pattern was more adept creating spin, while the tighter pattern offered greater, albeit flatter, control.
For experienced all-courters and net rushers who prize control and feel.
