View Full Version : Head LM instinct vs. Head Ti radical MP?

08-13-2006, 01:40 AM

Can anyone compare Head LM instinct and Head Ti radical MP? I know that demoing is the best way to know about racquets but I don't have a plan to purchase an intinct soon. I am just curious. I am not a big fan of head racquets so the closest thing to the instinct is the Ti Radical MP I have (11.2 oz strung).

Spin generation (I like to hit shots with pace and spin = heavy balls)
Control (of course)
Power (generally I prefer 12+ oz flexible, low powered racquets)
Comfort, flexibility, feel
and other characteristics (Swing weight, feel)

PS) I recently watched Gasquet vs. Federer Monte Carlo match tape and fascinated by Gasquet's playing.

I off and on play withthe instinct,modified with leather grip and overgrip weighs strung 11.8 oz. Nice rkt in all areas I disagree with the TW review re power, I believe it has decent pop. Unfortunately it has been discontinued and it does play differntly from the current model the FP Instinct.

Thanks for the input!:D

I know there are many other comparing posts but I wanted to know it compared to my Ti Rad MP because that's the only Head racquet I had. BTW, how different is it from the Flexpoint instinct? Which one do you like better? It has 18 mains. How is the spin generation?

The FP feels less manuererable a little clumsy, alsthough the SW are only 2 pts apart the instinct the lighter , maybe my fp instinct is differnt and I have not yet weighed it, from my view point I like the LM instinct better than the FP version, but alas it is discontinued.

I own liquidmetal instinct and it's a great racquet =) and by the way, gasquet uses XL version of liquidmetal instinct which i want to get, but anyway if u want the normal tour version, heres my feel of instinct. Spin is great, control is average, power is very low... *not even kidding*, and serve is excellent, but my kick serve doesn't go high as i do with rdx 300 so thats a bad thing and... thats what it! my string is at 57 tension synthetic gut

forgot to mention, swing speed is pretty same with FXP prestidge mp or Liquidmetal 4, or RDX 500 mid.
