Has anybody switched from the Flexpoint Instinct to the MG Instinct?

    Since the Flexpoint version has become scarce and only available on auction sites, I'm looking at at least giving the Microgel version a demo this summer, but since the specs are almost identical and the user reviews say it's about the same but a little better, I'm just curious if that's the consensus.

    I demoed the FP Instinct a few months ago and recently tried the MG Instinct also. I agree with most of the reviews and comments I have read on these boards. The MG is definitely more comfotable and swings a little easier than the FP. The FP felt more powerful and slightly more head heavy to me also. I had Wilson Sensation in both demos and they were strung at 57lbs. I really liked the MG, but decided on the Babolat PDC b/c of the substantial power level difference. The MG is a great all around racquet, but not as powerful as the PDC and slightly less than the FP.
