The new Carboflex models are out! I’ll make separate pages for these eventually but here we go for now.
Here’s a trailer. They did a good job with this, except for calling Marwan’s style of play “speedy”. I would have gone with “tactical”.
Paul from PDH Sports interviews Laurent Blary, Tecnifibre’s Global Product & Design Manager, about the new products:
Another one from PDH with a trailer-type vibe:
Originally I thought these rackets were going with simple names like “Tecnifibre Carboflex 125” and dropping the extra descriptors like “S” or “X-Speed“, as they have used in the past, but never mind: I see Tecnifibre is calling this the Tecnifibre Carboflex AirShaft range.
Here’s Nour El Sherbini’s model.
This is Marwan Elshorbagy’s racket:
This is Tecnifibre’s mid-priced racket:
Tecnifibre Carboflex Airshaft Junior
And won’t somebody please think of the children? Tecnifibre will:
They dropped some new bags. The range is called Team Icon:
They came out with some new strings, the DYNAMIX V.P. I’m not sure where these sit in Tecnifibre’s range of strings. One weird things is their black strings were previously called DNAMX. I wonder if they just renamed the previous string, or maybe updated the formula and took the opportunity to rebrand it? DNAMX was frequently misspelled anyway so they may have just ditched the name entirely.
That’s all for now! Thanks to everyone who sent in tips.
