Tecnifibre T-Flash 285
As I was working on this racquet I am thinking about the category in which this will be placed by me, and others probably, and I need to put it in the “game improvement” category!
Typically “game improvement” racquets are very large, ultra light, head heavy, and stiff! The T-Flash falls into this category because it is stiff! None of the other characteristics apply!
This racquet has a stiffness of RDC 70! This compares to the Wilson Ultra, and the Babolat Pure Drive, except it is not as heavy as either of those racquets.
To me the weight is an issue that can be remedied, and the very open string pattern mitigates the stiffness and keeps the effective stiffness below 30.
If you are considering a “power” oriented racquet this one should be on the list!
Adding Ashaway MonoGut ZX string to the mix assures the player of comfortable hitting!
Take a look at the specifications… then hit with it!
