If a classic movie is remade with the colors and special effects of today's greatest movies, the final product will most likely be a success. The same can ring true in tennis. With the TF40 305 Tecnifibre makes a racquet with a superb classic feel but also one that offers a perfect response for the modern game. The launch of this tricolor frame marks Tecnifibre's 40th anniversary. The TF40 305 also comes straight from the factory with impressive comfort. The Dynacore XTC technology is designed to allow extra dwell time and pocketing to give players an instant connection with the ball. Our team took this stick to the courts for a month-long playtest, and even with their varying games, all of the testers were delighted with the blend of control, power and feel. The 18x20 string pattern enhanced control and helped the TW players with pinpoint targeting. The racquet also displayed its heftier nature on each swing with an impressive level of stability and the ability to redirect pace. Our team thinks this TF40 305 is a gem for the intermediate through advanced level player seeking feel and control.
