Head adds some stability and power to the Instinct Lite! Like the previous generation, this racket packs a forgiving 107 square inch headsize along with a seedy 10.1 ounce strung weight.
It also has a slightly extended length (27.2"), which will give you extra momentum on groundstrokes and serves. As such, the Instinct Lite is the perfect tool for beginners who are looking for easy access to pace and spin. This racket should also work for the intermediate player or savvy doubles specialist who wants a slightly more forgiving and powerful response.
The signature technology is Graphene 360, which not only reinforces the shaft to achieve the benefits of polarized weighting, but also reinforces multiple locations around the stringbed for a more solid and powerful response.
From the baseline, this version of the Instinct Lite swings a little heavier than the previous generation. As a result, it offers easier access to power and does a better job when redirecting the pace of a big hitting opponent. The generous 107in² head provides a forgiving response on off-center hits, and the open 16x19 string pattern supplies the needed spin for bringing the ball down effectively.
At net, the Instinct Lite feels stable at impact, and there is enough pop to hit penetrating volleys. The slightly extended length provides easier net clearance on serves where our playtesters reported impressive targeting on big swings.
The Graphene 360 Instinct Lite is a must hit for beginner and intermediate players who want a forgiving racket with controllable power, easy access to spin and above average stability for its weight class.
