PostHeaderIcon Racquet Review Monday with the HEAD Extreme Pro and Instinct Mid Plus

extreme-and-instinct

Since the purchase of my HEAD Speed MP 315 (18×20) racquet a few years back, I’m an avowed HEAD fan. However, after recent hits with some other sticks in the HEAD family, my fan-dom has become a bit more qualified.

Don’t get me wrong. I love what the extremely versatile Speed line has done for my game. But that doesn’t necessarily translate to equally positive experiences with the Extreme, Instinct, Prestige, or Radical lines.

Two cases in point are my experiences with the two racquets in this review: the Extreme Pro 2.0 and the Instinct Mid Plus. They’re both solid racquets, and are currently being used by some very good players on the WTA/ATP pro tours. Does this translate to a successful racquet of choice for the average club player? My answer is a qualified “Maybe”.

Check out my thoughts on each and see if either might be the right racquet for your game.

Racquet Review: The Instinct Mid Plus

(As with most of my equipment testing, demo racquet was graciously provided by City Racquet Shop. Please check them out if you’re in the San Francisco Bay area.)

(Per usual, here are the caveats on my racquet reviews. I’m a 4.0 player with a fast swing that generates more than enough power and topspin from my western grip. I hit a slice backhand for tactical purposes, but generally use a two-handed drive. Please view this racquet review accordingly.)
