The Tibhar Fortino Force is the 7-ply offensive wood of the Tibhar Super Strong Series. The Fortino Force with inside synthetic fibers is designed for an aggressive topspin game, amazingly direct but also very precise for all strokes.

It is technically hard to create fast aggressive offensive blades but the concept of core reinforced fiber blades, which in term of speed and power are able to compete with outer synthetic fiber blades will be a surprise! The basis for this is the use of an innovative fabric made from carbon and Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™, which provides an excellent uniform bounce and minimizes annoying vibrations.

In addition, the special choice and combination of the wood veneers makes it a very powerful attacking blade for an uncompromising offensive game.
Get the right rubber for a winner

I originally used this with Tibhar EX-P, which is a medium fast rubber. I loved the responsiveness but not a whole lot of feeling, not the best control for modest player like me (a Porsche setup). I put that rubber on a Donic Epox, which turned out to be a really sweet combo, although not super responsive (think Mercedes). Put Quantum S on Fortino Force and Oh Ya, this is a great combination for me. I haven't had that many bats and my ranking is only about 1000 but I'm very happy with this setup. Great feel, control, solid, responsive. Keeping in mind that it's the player not the bat, a $30 bat is probably good enough for the way I play! But I can tell the differences between them, and this last set up feels great.
