Tecnifibre TFight 280 XTC - This racquet received a major overhaul in 2018. The TFight 280 is ideal for the intermediate player who wants a light performance frame that delivers easy targeting on full swings. It should also work for the dedicated beginner who needs a racket that will facilitate improvement.
For this update, Tecnifibre has not only redesigned the beam for easier power, but it has also added a more open and spin-friendly string pattern. The signature technology is called Xtreme Touch Construction, a material matrix deployed in the lower shaft to increase flexibility, touch and stability.
On groundstrokes, power and spin come easy thanks to how rapidly this racket accelerates. There's also enough mass in the head to give this stick decent stability for its weight class. As one of the lighter models in the TFight family, the 280 is great for scrambling on defense or cranking winners on the run.
Tecnifibre has also given this racket a longer grip, making it easier to execute a two-handed backhand.
As with the previous generation, the 280 moves into position very smoothly at net. It also whips powerfully through contact on serves to deliver a great combination of spin, pop and precision.
With some impressive updates to the feel and response along with sleek Lacoste inspired graphics, Tecnifibre has delivered a very seductive option to the rising intermediate looking to play more aggressive tennis.
