    This racquet is sick. Tried both the Speed Rev and the instinct rev. The instinct is the better all-round weapon. It plays defense like nobody's business, hits serves with good action, groundies are deep with full access to loads of spin and it hits volleys like an ultralight racquet has no business doing. I am switching from my donnay XP-dual black ASAP.

    THe instinct Rev had amazing control and was very easy to maneuver. It was virtually effortless to create great racket head speed.

    This racquet is quite possibly insane...took some adjusting but now its firing all the right angles and not to mention the power, perfect..! so...i guess it explains why maria is so good? no, its just a bonus to her amazing game :)

    What a fantastic racquet! I've played with the Wilson nCode since 2000. I was hesitant to switch away from Wilson but saw the good player feedback and gave the IG Instinct a go, and I'm really glad I did. The feel of the ball off the strings was crisp. I experienced lots of topspin on groundstrokes, gaining confidence in the racquet immediately. The most thrilling part of the first time experience was with my serves. The second serve kick really bounded off the ground head high to my playing partner. I thought I'd lost the big kick as I got older and slower. It's back with the IG Instinct! It's well-balanced and firm despite its light weight. It's an awesome racquet at any price.

    I had a good test with this racket. I was abe to hit the ball in the sweet spot often and returned the ball deep consistently. I was able to work easily from the backcourt. The feel was very good with the weight well distributed.

    Das Racket hAt mich nach 4 Test-Tagen sehr überzeugt, sodass Es keine Frage mehr für mich war es zu kaufen. ZurzeIt spieLe ich viele nur in der Halle und mit dem racket habe ich an QualitÄt und power gewonnen. UnglaublicH wie der schläger den schwung in schlagkraft umwandelt und obwohl ich jetzt nicht so muskulös bin, Erreichen mit dem schläger wirklich ein super tempo was mein spiel total verändert hat. Der sChLäger hat einen klassE sound beim sChlag. Habe noch einen head vibrationsdämpfet drAn und der kLanG klingt sehr gut. DiE kontrolle des rackets spührt man wenn man aUs dem lauf heraus spielt. Klassse umsetzung Von kraft, kontrolle und gefühl. Der schläger bringt auch wunderbar spinn in die schläge. Bei meinem letzten schläger hatte ich auch probleme mit dem Handgelenk was nuN gott sei dank nicht mehr Der fall ist. Das grapheNe racket überZeugte mich voll und gAnz und ich werde Weiterhin meineN spaSs hABen.

    While I believe this racket has potential in the right hands, it was not for me. It is easy to string providing you string the double holes properly, otherwise one string overlaps another at the head. Generous power with a full swing, but doesn't help my half swing doubles style very much. Head's reputation for making great rackets can only be enhanced with this frame. It's a sleeper in the right hands.

Er verfügt über alle eigenschaften, die für mich wichtig sind. ich kann damit die bälle in einem für mich völlig neuen ausmass beschleunigen und habe gleichzeitig eine sehr gute ballkontrolle. selbst nicht optimal getroffene bälle werden armschonend returniert. ein empfehlenswerter schläger auch für ambitionierte vereinsspieler

    I found the racquet to be light but powerful allowing me to hit out with spin and control. I currently use a head liquiD metal 8 and the transition was supRisedly easy To get accustomed to. My serving accuracy and Velocity of serves were increased. Even as I begin to tire(I am 61, after all) I was able to impart spin and depth of shots from both backhand and forehand. My oppOnent was amazed at the ease I was able to hit with accuracy, spin and Power tHroughout our match and rallies after.
