    To me , the Instinct is more comfortable and despite the Prince Triple Threat, more resistant to twisting. I may well switch to the Instinct from the POG OS for more power and less weight. If you like a "crisp" feel, you would prefer the Shark. I never liked the TiRads, but I like the TwinTube on the Instinct - feels very smooth.

    Shark is much more solid feeling to me...more powerful too...Instinct feels very flimsy and "cheap" to me...but Shark was TOO powerful for my swings....I'd say they're similar in comfort level..the Shark is very dampened and not as stiff as you might think....I think it's a much better tweener racquet

    I have two Sharks 4 1/2 grip strung with Babalot X-Cell (both played with for one hour each) if anyone interested.
