Comments: Excellent Racquet. The Head YouTek Graphene Instinct MP compliments my game very nicely. However,
I did need to up the weight of the racquet ever so slightly. It's very maneuverable and very spin friendly. I am not going to say that
this version of Instinct is as stable at the net as the Ingera version of the same racquet; but it still plays well at the net. Being a
baseline player who likes to hit heavy ground strokes and serve big, this is certainly my racquet of choice for 2013 and possibly
longer. I use Luxilon M2 Pro 1.25 mm 16 L stings in all my racquets as I find the strings to be very comfortable and durable. If
anything I have found that these strings actually make this particular racquet even better. No issues with arm pain what so ever.
This racquet is my top pick for anyone who plays a heavy baseline game and likes a powerful serve.
Comments: I usually play with APD GT. This stick has more power than my APD GT. It also has better feel and easier
access to spin and precise targeting. The flex rating is 70, but it didnt play that way. It feels much more flexible. I was hitting flat
serves easily and generating spin was no problem with the open string pattern. This is arm friendly and easy to swing. Highly
reccoment this stick!
Comments: Coming from an APD GT, this Graphene Instinct MP is now my raquet of choice base on previous model
review. As New APD GT'13 seems to has more power, I decide to go for more controllable power. From the first hit, I'm not
with lighter swing weight and tend to make some errors by over exaggerating the racquet's head speed. Though the Instinct plays
very comfortable from the baseline I noticed vibration on volleys, especially on off-center hits. Then I added a little lead tape to
increase swingweight and amazingly all the problems are gone. With lead tape, the racquet response enabled me to play volleys
comfortably. Now my shot has more plowthrough and also good spin, though it's not that heavy spin like with the APD GT.
Comments: I love this racquet very much. Compared to the last version, it is more stable frame-wise, but took
time to get use to the shift in the weight distribution. It still gives that effortless power and then some. Also for me it gave me
of that topspin and control I needed. All in all this racquet has potential to be a great weapon for those who know what to do with
power. It really feels like I just need to use my instinct and the racquet does the rest, hence its name.
