    My head racquets are getting long in the tooth. What is a good replacement similar to this racquet in terms of feel and amount of spin and power. I string them at 58 pounds with luxilon original big banger.

    Try a Radical MP.

    58 for a full poly? How's that treating your wrist/arm?

    My arm is fine as im pretty young and will demo that radical. Would u know of any new racquets that I should try like ones that have recently came out? I recently demoed the head extreme pro youtek IG but felt as if it didnt have enough power and spin as my old racquet. Thanks for the feedback.

    If you want something with a similar spec but with better feel and stability then the new Vantage bc30 would be perfect. A proper players racket in the world of tweeners.

    TW are still deciding wether to take them on. Best to get in touch with sven @ vantage USA im sure there's a demo system available soon.

    Did you mean me...tweener? ? If so imo a tweener is inbetween a players racket and an oversize and the 100" market seems to be the biggest out there.

    after the flexpoint instinct, there have been microgel and youtek versions. according to some reviews, the microgel version feels most solid, without compromising the other good qualities of this series of rackets. the youtek version wasn't very popular for some reason. but now, they have the youtek IG version, although they changed the string pattern from 18x19 to 16x19 so it should feel a bit different, even if the keep all other specs similar. if you like your instinct, you should stay with this line.
