I used to be turned off to the samurai paintjob these racquets had, so I never even tried this racquet, even though I used to have the early 2008 model TFight 320 with the spin monster 16x20 pattern. I used to not like the tinny feel of the original TFight 320, but was surprised at the demo I had.
The difference is that the head flexes well, even though the stiffness rating is near 70, in the Babolat Pure Drive or Aero Pro Drive territory. I get all the spin and power I would want out of a Babolat but with a nicer flex feel of a Head or Volkl racquet. Hitting flat feels good with the 18x19 pattern, but the spin potential is incredible! I have absolutely no fear hitting high topspin one handers with this racquet. I felt like Vilas on the backhand with this, because I didn't even need to use a loop to get the spin! lol
These come with silicone already in the handle too. The stability is amazing and the bite on the ball is just nasty!
The specs have not changed from 2010 for these racquets, so if you don't mind the samurais in gold or red, the racquet is exactly the same as the 2012 racquet. They can be found for 129 on the web!

Pro Blend sucks for sure. But I demoed it with Head Synthetic Gut. My demo is not pictured here.
The Prestige Pro paintjob looks classy, almost a dark red and brown, like wine. The new TFight looks absolutely boring without the samurais.
I scored three of these babies from a UCLA student! The thing just plays wicked warp speed with full Tour Bite in it. Wait until I put Gamma Verve in them.
Personally, I like to samurai design on the black racquet.
Glad you liked it. ;)
