Can anyone compare the IG instinct MP to the Graphene Instinct MP?
 
I find it hard to believe that there's much difference between these two rackets. The previous iteration got a so-so review here and the latest one somewhat better, however, I believe the IG Instinct rackets used by TW in the playtest were very light at 10.9oz, which contributed to the semi harsh review, as mine came in at 11.1oz stock.

I mean honestly, is there any distinguishable difference between these rackets with same strings, same tension, same grip size etc.

Can anyone else give a good comparison between the 2?
The IG just had a price drop and was thinking about buying one without demo.

In a italian forum, I read that graphene is more stable, comfortable and spin friendly. It has also more touch. Are that informations true??? Because the price is very high!!!

They are very different. Head really redid the Speed MP. The new one is more powerful and also no longer extended length. The new one is closer to a tweener, whereas the IG is much more "player-ish".

Are you talking about the Instinct or the Speed?

Dont think the Instinct has ever been offered in 27.25.
Back in the day, The Instinct Tour was 27.5

The Speed. The previous IG and Youtek Speed was 27.25" long.

Any additional info between the the IG and G Instinct?

A_Instead 05-05-2013 02:56 PM

anyone hit with both and can give thier 2 cents?

A little off the topic, but why is the recommended tension on the Graphene Instinct so low? Is Head taking into account that a lot of people are now using poly strings?

zapvor 05-05-2013 08:50 PM

they are doing that for all the rackets now. its the trend

I am liking my G Instinct strung at 45 lbs...
