    Comments about HEAD Graphene Instinct PWR:

    I have always used head racquet but this is the best. First time I played with it never wanted to go back to my old racquet. Everything about it is just right for me so glad I made the purchase.

    • Q:

      What strings would you recommend for this racquet that still provides comfort, but has good playability and at what tension should it be strung? 57? Head recommends PWR Fusion but it isn't available as an option.

        Since the HEAD Graphene Instinct PWR is a fairly stiff racquet, I would recommend trying a soft string like HEAD FXP or FXP Power. Both are currently being offered free of charge with the racquet purchase. Choosing a soft string will help offset some of the racquet's stiffness and should give you plenty of comfort and playability. I usually suggest stringing in the middle of the manufacturer's recommended range when players are switching to a new racquet (which would be 57 for the Graphene Instinct PWR). That usually gives players the best feel for the racquet and allows them plenty of room for adjustments later on. Ultimately, though, string choice and tension are largely based on personal preference and players' individual style, so don't be afraid to experiment with different tensions and string set ups once you've become accustomed to your new racquet. If you have any questions or need further guidance, please feel free to contact us at (866) 860-1416 or info@holabirdsports.com

        Head YOUTEK Graphene PWR Instinct is ideal for players with compact strokes. The Graphene speed would be best because of it's larger sweet spot and larger swing weight allowing more pop on each swing from the baseline.
