Updated with a more solid feel, the Graphene 360 Instinct MP offers the speed, power and spin of a modern player's racket but with a more arm-friendly stiffness rating.
In addition to giving intermediate players the tools to play aggressive tennis, the Instinct MP should also appeal to the more advanced player who wants a lighter, faster option.
Compared to the Graphene Touch version it replaces, this update has a slightly higher swingweight, giving it a boost in stability and power. It also gets updated with 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.
On groundstrokes the Instinct MP not only rewards full cuts with controllable power and easy access to spin, but it also offers more comfort than a typical modern player's racket. Although not as solid feeling as a traditionally weighted player's racket, this stick is sufficiently stable for its weight class. The 320-RDC swingweight gives it enough speed for whipping up spin, while leaving enough mass in the head to get the ball moving effectively through the court.
At net, the Instinct MP plays great on reaction volleys, with enough pop to close out points.
It also comes around fast on service returns to deliver plenty of control when the pressure is on. Aggressive servers will have the needed precision and spin to target the corners of the service box.
Ultimately, with some impressive updates to the feel and response, the Instinct MP is a great option for the intermediate player who wants a light and comfortable player's racket with easy targeting.
