Is this HEAD Flexpoint Instinct ?
I'm searching the net to find and buy a successor of Head LiquidMetal Instinct(2004). Now I know the production line of Instinct series was: LiquidMetal Instinct --> FlexPoint Instinct --> MicroGel Instinct --> YouTek Instinct, hope I'm right.
The question: finally I have found last two rackets in local e-shop but I'm not sure if this is Head FlextPoint Instinct that I have been looking for. Here is the link
Pictures of FlexPoint Instinct at tennis-warehouse review are different.
Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.
flexpoint is easy to tell because it has the 2 holes drilled at 3 and 9 o clock
o.k it is Flexpoint, thanks.
then I have one more question: is the Flexpoint 2008 at my local e-shop the same as the Flexpoint 2005 at tennis-warehouse, I mean based on used technology? Based on specs bellow I would say - yes, am I right? Flexpoint at TW review is from 2005, my local e-shop says: 2008.
May be it is only because of bad picture of Flexpoint 2008, but the 2008 frame looks much thicker than FXP 2005, by spec it should be the same 23/25/21 mm.
Flexpoint 2008 specs:
technology: HEAD Flexpoint
construction: Head Liquidmetal
Composition: 23/25/21 mm
head size: 645 cm2
weight(string less) 295g
balance(string less) 320mm
length: Standard, 685mm
string pattern: 18/19
swing style: L3
TW flexpoint 2005 specs:
Length 27 inches, 69 centimeters
Head Size 645 cm2
Weight 11.2 ounces 318 grams
Balance Point 13.125 inches, 33 centimeters, 3pts Head Light
Construction LiquidMetal Titanium / Graphite and Piezzo Electric Fibers
Composition 23 - 25 - 21 mm Tapered Beam
String Pattern 18 Mains / 19 Crosses
p.s. I don't understand why Head uses product name Flexpoint and technology LiquidMetal, very confusing... or HEAD mixed these two technology together :confused:?
Thanks for any response.

the 2008 fxp is fake
thank you a lot, you saved me money.
I have seen that paint scheme before, and think it is legit.
Are you in Canada by chance?
For some reason, I think that was a "regional" paint job.

the 2008 frame looks different to 2005 version, much thicker.
I can't speak to the frame's beam width, but like vsbabolat has indicated, that is a legit Head painthjob. (I saw it on their website as well.)
its a legit cosmetic only update of the 2005 flexpoint instinct , and quite good looking to if i may add . there is a vendor on the big auction site in italy that sells this particular version of the flexpoint instinct . i play the instinct tour xl but my favorite paintjob of the instinct line is the 2005 gold and black , would love to have the instinct tour xl in that paintjob but it was never offered to the public maybe for prostock ?
