The Head Youtek Graphene Instinct PWR is the most powerful and comfortable frame in the Instinct racquet line and introduces the use of Graphene - the world's lightest and strongest material. Allows for an optimal redistribution of weight from tip to grip, producing increased swingweight without sacrificing maneuverability, for more penetrating shots. 8.6 oz. strung, 115 square inch headsize, 29mm wide beam, and 308 swingweight for incredible power and forgiveness. This combination of specifications adds up to big power and a large sweetspot for beginning to intermediate players with slow to moderate swings. Longer 27.67 inch length for added reach and power.

HEADs new core technology introduces the world’s strongest and lightest material: Graphene. Discovered in 2004, Graphene consists of a single two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms. This material has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, which makes it the ultimate substance for creating new HEAD tennis racquet frames with exceptional properties. Graphene technology allows for the first time an optimal redistribution of weight in HEAD racquets. Through the use of Graphene in the shaft, the weight in the middle part of the tennis racquet can be reduced. Instead, weight can be shifted from the racquet shaft to more functionally relevant areas in the tip and grip. This unique construction provides players with an unmatched maneuverability and an increased swingweight. In other words, a racquet with Graphene is easier to swing and enables even more powerful shots.

I was looking to replace my HEAD Intelligence IS 12 Racquet. Just purchased Head Youtek Graphene Instinct Power Racquet. Very happy with this racquet. A light weight racquet with good power.

I have 2 daughters that have both played tennis now for a couple of years. I wanted to invest in their high school team and getting them new rackets was the best way to start. We demoed 4 rackets and this one was great! It helped their power, control and feel. They love them.

Love it!

After spending an hour or so on the court, I could see and feel an immediate improvement with my forehand delivery. Was it me or the Racquet, time will tell after continuous usage.... It's the racquet.

I demoed this racket at my local club and the only thing I didn't like was that it was very loosely strung which added power, but lowered control. So I ordered it with 55lb stringing. Voila. The perfect racket for me and my full swing.

5 Stars It works for me (but not necessarily for others)

from NY wrote (December 29, 2013):

My style of play is somewhat unique...I play right handed but switch hands when I have to reach/stretch for a ball on the backhand side. With that in mind, I searched for the lightest racquet with the most power. I believe that my search has ended. Prior to this I had the most success with the Wilson Tempest Four BLX for light weight and control and the Wilson One BLX for power (but weighs more, especially the swing weight). This racquet is lighter than the Tempest Four and delivers more power (not quite as much as the Wilson One, but clearly more than the Tempest Four). Control is great for directing shots where I want, and I have no difficulty slicing the ball or getting the racquet up for volleys and overheads. P.S. The racquet is strung at 60 with Luxilon Alu Power Fluoro 1.23 (17 gauge string).

The Graphene Instinct PWR is an amazing all around racket. It is extremely light and yet really packs a punch! The top and bottom of the racket are weighted heavier due to the light graphene center, which adds an amazing feel to each swing. I for sure recommend buying a Head Graphene tennis racket, the addition of graphene unlocks worlds! Plus, there are so many graphene rackets to choose from!

4 Stars light & comfortable

what is amazing about this racquet is the comfort level, and the light swingweight of it. even off center hits feel okay. big improvement over the s6 and the Wilson 5.3

5 Stars Excellent

from IN wrote (July 22, 2013):

I am both a senior and an intermediate player. This is a great racquet for me. I have to remind myself not to over hit, but to let the racquet work for me.

5 Stars Excellent Racquet for Seniors

from CA wrote (May 20, 2013):

I replaced my Wilson Stratus 3 with this racquet, gives a similar feel and power level & is even lighter allowing for quicker swings! Love it!

5 Stars Very good intermediate racquet

from FL wrote (May 09, 2013):

I have been using several TiS6 racquets for years because they are so light.This has a similar feel and a softer touch. My drop shots are noticeably better.
