Rackets: Tecnifibre T-Flash 265
Tecnifibre reveals the T-Flash 265, a lightweight racket aimed at developing juniors and adults.
Hard sell: This lightweight racket will give dynamic performance and great manoeuvrability for developing players and should suit good juniors as well as adults, Tecnifibre says.
Tennishead says: This was the surprise package of the rackets tested for intermediate and club players. It took a while to get used to, but once we had the measure of it, it felt better and better the longer we used it. It looks fabulous a vivid red frame with a great-looking, eye-catching string logo. The 100-square-inch racket face provides a big sweetspot, which is good for confidence, particularly around the net, but there’s excellent control too. And it’s yours for under a hundred quid. The company is probably better known for its strings, but a look at its funky website tells us that Tour pros Janko Tipsarevic, Fernando Verdasco and Gisela Dulko all use Tecnifibre rackets.
