Head Graphene Instinct MP Tennis Racquet

Head Youtek Graphene Instinct MP Tennis Racquet
Alternate Images
The Head Youtek Graphene Instinct MP is endorsed by Maria Sharapova and Tomas Berdych 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.

The Graphene Instinct MP offers a 100 square inch head, wider 23/25mm tapered beam, standard 27 inch length, and 11.1 oz. strung weight. Remains a more forgiving option to the Prestige and Radical. More open 16x19 string pattern for a bit more forgiveness and more spin potential.

Note: Head does not include a cover with this racquet.

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'm a huge fan of Maria Sharapova that's why I bought it and when I get to use it myself, that's when I understand what made her to the championship. This racquet is amazing. The weight is light yet so powerful and it gives me the spin I look for. The best racquet I've ever had.

Great racquet

A great racquet choice for the baseline player who swings fast and can control the weight distribution of the Instinct. Coming from the heavier and much more head light Wilson Six One, the Instinct felt light and maneuverable. But after some playing time, the balance and frame stiffness caught up with my arm. There's plenty of access to power and spin from the racquet, though the flat-hitters may prefer it more than the spinners. The oblong head shape took some time to get used to, as did the wide beam on slices. At net (when I got there), there wasn't much feel. But the Instinct made up for this with its stability. Overall, the racquet was easy to handle and offered a lot of energy on serves and groundstrokes without much effort once I got used to the balance. Most importantly, the Instinct has the coolest paint job out there. So even if your game doesn't improve, you'll look better while losing. I know I did.

A Slighty Heavier Winner

While the specs for this racquet and the Graphene Radical MP appear to be fairly close, there is a noticeable difference in the heft of the Instinct over the Radical. This racquet is well-balanced with some noticeable additional head-weight. It is solid and produces good power. It serves well and has good control. Someone with a reasonably fast swing would benefit the most from this racquet.

Best Racket Ever!

My entire ladies tennis team (55+) purchased this racket and couldn't be happier. Has definitely made us better players. Easy to swing, very little string vibration, good touch, easy to put spin on ball. EXCELLENT! You could spend more on a racket, but why? We love it & highly recommend it.

My husband and I both bought this racquet because we love it so much! It makes your swing effortless. The weight is proportioned exactly where it needs to be for a fast easy swing that delivers great results. It's heavy enough for us to deliver fast, hard shots but not so heavy that your arm is dead after a few hours of playing. We both highly recommend this racquet.
