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.
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!
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
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.
