Tecnifibre Suprem 130 Reviews

I had a chance to hit with the Tecnifibre Suprem 130 the other day. I really enjoyed this racket. It’s light (130 grams) and, according to the specs, just a teeeeeeensy bit head light (34.5 cm), but it felt like an even balance.

I got a very nice feel on the ball with this racket. It felt very solid and stable, without being heavy.

I compared it to my Dunlop Pro GTS, which has a similar head shape and weight. The Tecnifibre was a touch heavier in the head, and just felt more “dense”. In other words the Dunlop felt like it had more flexibility in the shaft and was maybe more appropriate for quick, wristy shots, while the Tecnifibre Suprem 130 encouraged a smooth swing with solid contact.

All things considered I really like this racket.

Here’s what Paul “Suprem” Hargrave had to say about this racket (and how it compares to the other 2014 Tecnifibre rackets). He classes this as a “control” racket and I agree with him:

    Hey Pierre, I note from your previous posts that you use the Dunlop Pro GTS – I do as well.

    I really like the racket. However I’m considering something similar that might give me just a little more power on the ball – I’m already running quite a low tension: 25lbs on the GTS but wouldn’t mind putting in maybe a little less effort, its marginal but something I’m considering.

    (Since I’m not set on strings or tension just yet I’mc considering dropping tension further by a few lbs).

    I like the more classic shape of the GTS and the Suprem’s and the feel that shape gives, my question is:

    Do you feel any of the Technifibre Suprem range might tick the power box for me?

    As always grateful for your feedback.

      Hi Henry, I do think the Suprem 125 would be interesting for you to try. It’s similar to the GTS 130 but a little head heavier, which should encourage you to set up earlier and take a full swing through the shot, and get more power in the process. At the expense, maybe, of some ability to hit quick wristy shots.

      Another one you might want to try out is the Dunlop Elite GTS. I just did a review of it and found it’s similar to the Pro GTS but I felt the Elite has a bit more power.

    hi pierre what do u think is better and which one do u recommend for myself and others to use 125 130 or135
    for someone that plays a controlled and power game also moves well

    • Pierre Bastien says

      Hi Michael,

      I’ve never used the 135.

      Between the other two, I think the 130 would be best for a controlled power game. It’s a bit stiffer and very stable.

      The 125 is a little lighter and more flexible. It’s still got power but I think this one would be best if you prefer a fast-paced attacking game.
