The Tecnifibre T-Fight 325—racquet of choice for Janko Tipsarevic—and T-Fight 320 are now Tour Prepared. (The numbers represent the racquets’ weight in grams.) Tecnifibre says that, in keeping with how sticks are primed for their touring pros, the T-Fights incorporate silicone in the handle lay-up, reducing vibrations, increasing comfort and enhancing feel. Moreover, as an ATP-level product—Tecnifibre is now the official racquet of the men’s pro tour—the company has tightened manufacturing variances, ensuring more consistent specifications from racquet to racquet.
How It Tested
The T-Fight 325 and 320 are thin and weighty enough to strike pin-point lasers all over the court, but only in the hands of players who are strong enough to bring the racquets up to speed. All in all, playtesters claimed the 325 did best executing strategies that relied more on driving, penetrating shots rather than loopy, spin-heavy ones. The 320 found an audience with playtesters who prefer their stick slightly quicker and more conducive to spin; like the 325, it features the same playeresque construction and all-court balance, but it’s lighter, and has a string bed that allows for more string movement on impact.
For offensive, big-swinging all-courters and power baseliners who hit penetrating (325) and spin-heavy (320) drives.
