Gear Review

This review is taken from the 2017 Racquet Guide which appears in the March/April issue of Tennis Magazine.

How it tested: The TFight DC 305 has the weight and firmness shared by many racquets in the ‘tweener category. What separated it—both good and bad—was its emphasis on control. The frame’s balanced encouraged fast swings, and racquet-head speed was required to squeeze spin and power out of the 18x19 string pattern. As one tester noted about her serves and ground strokes: “I had no problem putting the ball where I wanted it, but I really had to swing hard to get the pace I wanted.” Testers had a connection with the ball at net, where the feel and control offered them the dual threat of either playing aggressively or with touch. “It was easy to drive the ball through the court,” said one tester, “and I hit a couple of drop volleys that landed like a butterfly with sore feet.” The DC stands for Dynacore—a flexible material designed to increase the frame’s torsional stability. It was far from a pushover, but some testers did question whether the racquet had enough clout to repel heavy hitting. Those players may require a little lead tape on the frame’s head—or even a step-up in weight and stiffness to the TFight 320.
