Okay, so I wanted to demo the Head liquidmetal instinct. Unfortunately, because it is an old model racquet, it's no longer available for demo and is soon to be discontinued (a couple more orders coming in, but that's it.)

I want to get a lighter racquet at about the 11.1-11.3 oz weight range, and this racquet was perfect.


Plus, I can't spend too much money either.

I'm hoping for a midplus too.


Should i just buy this racquet or look for another one? if it's the latter, any recommendations?

well you would def need to demo any racket before buying one so you can talk to pros in your area to see if they know anyone who uses it. I played with it when i was looking around; cant say i was fan of it, jsut didnt fit my game.
I use a fischer m pro 98 ul, that weighs 11.0. If you cant find liquidmetal i would recommend demoing that. And if its too light you can always put lead tape on it to add a little bit.

How much is it though? I might settle for the LM radical if I can't get an instinct. I might ask my friend to see if I can demo one from him.

yea its more expensive than what a radical would be. I also played with a radical for a year or so... not bad
