Tecnifibre TF 40 305

As you know Racquet Quest is always interested in racquet models from any brand and while Tecnifibre is not a new brand it is, in my opinion, just beginning to gain traction in this market.

Tecnifibre has always been associated with some of the best multi-filament strings available.

The racquet we are reviewing today is the Tecnifibre TF 40, 305 gram version.  I would place this racquet in the “player” category, if you believe in such categories, and the 21.7mm beam confirms where most “players” find themselves. The 18×20 string pattern also contributes to the categorical placement.

There is a 305 gram version of the TF 40 and a 315 gram version both having the 18×20 string pattern.  I believe there needs to be a 16×19 string pattern to complete the TF 40 series.

The TF 40 series is a no-frill approach to racquets.  The red, white, blue, and black graphics look good as does the “knurled” outer surface of the racquet head.

Take a look at the “play ready”, string, overgrip, vibration damper, specifications below to see how it stacks up, then come by and try it!
