Aggressive ball strikers should have a blast with this update to the TFlash 315. At 11.7 ounces, this one draws a nice compromise between speed and stability. The racquet's midsection has been updated with Tecnifibre's Velocity Shaft Design, giving it a speedier, more aerodynamic feel. Fast swings from the baseline deliver penetrating depth, loads of spin and explosive bounces (see heavy ball). Thanks to its Tour Prepared Technology, which features silicone in the handle, the response is wonderfully crisp and clean. Our TW playtesters reported high levels of confidence attacking the ball where they were impressed by the accuracy on fast swings. At net this one moves into position like butter, and there's plenty of pop for finishing points. Serving with the TFlash 315 is an exercise in power and spin. Strong intermediates and advanced players should be able to get some free points with this one. Ultimately, this fast and powerful stick is a great option for the aggressive player looking to kick it up a notch.
