Tecnifibre TFight 315 XTC
Tecnifibre updates the TFight 315 with better feel and a sleek Lacoste cosmetic. Named the ATP TFight 315 XTC, this racquet is built for intermediate and advanced players who want a speedy player’s racquet with a user-friendly balance of power and control. At 11.7 ounces strung, the 315 is one of the heavier models in the TFight line, but it also packs explosive acceleration thanks to a zippyy 314 RDC swingweight. The speedy feel, when paired with an open 16x19 string pattern, makes the 315 a very spin-friendly stick. The signature technology is called Xtreme Touch Construction, which is a material matrix in the lower shaft that increases flexibility, touch and stability. It also packs a relatively thin beam, giving it good feel for a modern player's racquet. From the baseline, the 315 has sufficient control for confidently attacking the ball, and the open 16x19 supplies the needed bite for bringing the ball down with spin. Like the previous generation, this stick’s maneuverability makes it well suited to cranking winners on the run or resetting the point with an outstretched flick. At net the 315 moves fast and plays great on reaction volleys. Although it’s not as stable as a traditional player’s racquet, there’s ample room to beef up the specs through weight customization. Ultimately, with some incremental updates to the feel, Tecnifibre has kept a good thing going. The 315 remains a great option for intermediate and advanced players who want a maneuverable players racquet with a great balance of power, control and spin.
