The popular Instinct MP from Head remains one of their easiest to recommend frames for a wide range of players due to its easy access to power and overall comfort. The Instinct MP should appeal to strong beginners up to advanced players.
The Instinct series, known for its effortless power and comfort, has its cosmetic design updated for 2022 and still includes Head's advanced material technology: Graphene 360+. This advanced technology is a combination of Head's previous Graphene 360 for advanced energy transfer resulting in increased power and innovative spiralfibers for an enhanced flex and clean impact feel.
The 100 square inch head size should provide an average blend of power and control. The specially designed cross-section provides more stability and a larger sweetspot for easier power. At 10.6 ounces, its on the heavier side of average which will provide extra stability on high-energy returns, solid punch at the net and forgiveness on off-center hits. The head-light balance means with the additional weight, you won't sacrifice on maneuverability which should mean fast cuts for spin and quick movement at the net for consistent volleys.
With this racquet, you'll find effortless high performance and comfort available in a new design that should appeal to many players.

Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.
Product specs such as weight may vary slightly from racquet to racquet to what is advertised due to the manufacturing process.
Adult Racquets Sizing Information
To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.
If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
