    Played with the demos yesterday - meh. Hate the fact it has 4 shared holes! Looked like an old Wilson Sting with the neon blue. Hahaha

    I have to admit. I don't know much (read: anything) about the Instinct line, but that is one nice looking PJ.

    Tinyman's link stated August? If its available in two weeks, that's great. I'll ask the shop when they expect to get them in.
    I have a strip of lead tape at 12 o'clock because I wanted just a bit more weight at the head. Its really made a difference for me. I'm not a great server, but I will say that I can get more speed with more control with this racquet than any others Ive used. Ground strokes have good power and the racquet has a wide 'sweet spot', while still having some feel. I also notice I'm getting more spin on shots with this racquet too...not sure if its attributed to the strings as well...
    At the least, I'd say its worth demoing it to see if it works for you, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to pick one of these up. Its a great racquet for me and where my game is currently at.

    Instinct has to be 18x19 or it's not an instinct.
    Real shame they made that decision :(

    Well, old instict was not spin friendly. so Head wanted to make it more Spin friendly. in today's game, spin is critical to success.
