Hello all.

I repost here, as I think I chose the wrong forum last time, sorry.

Brand new here, and from France.

So, I apologize for my bad English.

Just a question why don't you ever speak about Tecnifibre racquets?

I played Sqaush many years ago, with old aluminium Wilson racquets.

I play tennis for almost 40 years (I'm 45), and I'll restart playing squash this week.

I bought on ebay a Tecnifibre Titanium Expert + 2006, I hope it's not a mistake I made (but at 22€ P&P inc, it's quite a brgain)

Thanks for your answers.

Great forum, very goods advices, really a pleasure to read each answer!

as it's saturday evening I can wrote some posts to the forum :-)

During my squash adventure I've checked (tested) variety of brands (from Head to Dunlop, from Black Knight to Prince, from Prince to e-squash, From e-squash to Grays, from Wilson to Feather, from Feather to Harrow) and when I was in Brussels my coach was playing with Tecnifibre (Carboflex 130) and I have to say - I did not like the vibration at all. I have nothing against headheavy rackets (like my Wilson nTour was) but the vibration worked terribly on my wrist and elbow. You may say - use some dampers, but... I am simply not keen on TF rackets, though I think TF strings are the top 3 (with Ashaway and e-squash)

Hi All

Many thanks for your nice answers!

That's great to meet guys like you!

Thanks to you, I'm now reassured. My Tecnifibre racquet will arrive today, but there's a national tournament where I usually play, so I won't be able to play this week end :(

I'll tell you what I think about her when I'll be able to hit some balls (squash ones lol).

I met the "chairman" of Technifibre this week, very nice guy.

He presented us the future racquets (deliverable 05-2008). These were prototypes of course, black mat finish. Very nice racquets to play with. Powerful, very powerful, head balanced as always with  Technifibre, and nice ball touch, quite easy to volley with.

He is very proud of its products, especially strings. He can as Tecnifibre is the best string as everybody say!

I think I'll be a Tecnifibre addict (as I'm a Pro Kennex Tennis racquets addict, I play with my 5th one!)

Thank you all

i play with a tecnifibre carboflex 150 and think it's a great racket. it feels slightly head heavy and does vibrate somewhat. however, the vibration seems to contribute to the extra power you can generate with this racket. i can get a lot more power from my shots than with my previous racket, a prince tt viper. at the same time, the carboflex has good control for drop shots and front court play. after a few games i didn't even notice the vibration and i'm very happy with the carboflex.

pierre - it was probably me who confused you - I can now put posts into the correct category as some members do not use the down arrow feature and select the racket brand etc which then makes it difficult for others coming in looking for reviews, etc.Of course we do not want to keep repeating the posts/replies over and over as new people come along but rather have them see what has been previously discussed and ask further questions if necessary.

I guess one thread is what I am promoting here.

I will add however that on cool looks alone the new carboflex 130/140 wins hands down over any other design from any brand!

Well,, I have been using a technifibre racket for about 6 months now, And I'm rather happy with it. But it all depends on your game, most technifibre rackets are head heavy... so I don't exactly know what that  means, but I'm presuming it means it is more suitable to a faster paced, hard hitting game? They seem to be rather durable, as mine is always scraping the wall,, it has chips all over, but has not yet broken.


I find they take a while to get use to, but once you have, they seem to work well... but really its all preference. :)

I think the answer probably lies in the fact that there are only a small number of regular contributers on this forum, and maybe no one has ever tried tecnifibre rackets for any length of time ( as I haven't) I can't speak for other countries but here in the UK  tecnifibre rackets are just not as well known or as popular as other brands. Although saying that everyone uses tecnifibre string....
