hey I'm 13 years old and i'm looking for a new racquet. I've narrowed it down to either the lm instinct or the lm 4. I'm a baseliner, strong topspin forehand, decent serve, two handed backhand. i'm not sure which one to purchase. anyone have suggestions?

LM Instinct.

I demoed each thoroughly.
The Instinct has much better control.
LM4 was just a cannon. Couldn't spin too well either.

LM Instinct.. for sure the LM 4 is a really hard frame is get any feel off of and maintaining control will not be easy for anyone with long fast swings.

I'm playing with the LM 4 and have had great results with it. As opposed to others here, I've been impressed with its touch, spin and shot accuracy. And yes, there's lots of controllable power.

All that said, for a 13 yo looking to improve technique and ability the Instinct would be the better choice. With the LM 4's giant 107" face of all sweetspot, it's an excellent mashers racquet for those of questionable technique (like myself), but also fun. Try to demo each before you decide.
