The Instinct Lite from Head provides easier power and maneuverability due it's lighter weight and larger head size. The Instinct Lite should appeal to beginners up to club players who need easier playability.
The Instinct series, known for its effortless power and comfort, has been updated to include Head's advanced material technology: Graphene 360+. This advanced technology is a combination of Head's previous Graphene 360 for advanced energy transfer resulting increased power and innovative spiralfibers for an enhanced flex and clean impact feel.
The 107 square inch oversize head size will provide an increased power level for players with a tendency for shorter swings and the larger sweet spot will provide extra comfort and forgiveness on off-center shots. The specially designed cross-section of the Instinct racquets will provide additional stability and a larger sweetspot for easier power. At 9.5 ounces, its on the lighter side of average which will provide easier maneuverability for those without the strength for a heavier racquet. The even balance means the racquet retains stability and punch even at a lighter overall weight. The slightly longer length of the racquet, although marginal, should contribute towards the swingweight which is in line with the overall goal of "easy power".
With this racquet, you'll find effortless power and comfort available in a new design, perfect for the player looking for an attractive racquet focused on lightweight performance.

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.
