    I recently purchased a Head Liquidmetal Instinct without demoing it. I've found that I can't effectively play with the Midplus head size, I've always played with oversize. If anyone would like to trade for the racquets I'm very open to offers or suggestions. The racquets has a few very small scuffs on the top but otherwise immaculate, as is common with racquets played with once or twice. It is strung with Head Intellitour strings. I'd generally prefer an oversize players racquets (lm radical, etc). Anyone?

    If you have the Instinct XL, it is 10 pts head light, the Instinct 4 pts.
    That means you have a lot of room for leading it up and customizing it to exactly what you like.
    One can take nearly any racquet that is not too heavy to begin with and make it feel good and playable ... even ideal.
    My Asian version of the nCode6195 was awful at first. With lead after a little tweaking over a week or so it is now the best racquet I have ever had for slugging the ball as hard as I want.
    Just something to consider.

    So what exactly did you not like about it ?
    That will tell where the lead needs to be added.

    essentially too much power. The racquet is advertised as having a little extra pop and certainly has that. The racquet is indeed very light and has a great feel to it, but I think I want just a 'dead' players racquet.
