Head has fully maximized the new graphene technology in this ultra light racquet that weighs 8.6 ounces. Graphene is very light and super strong, and this material has been inserted in the shaft for a better weight distribution. This way players still get mass behind their shots by having weight at the tip of the frame, and better control by having weight at the handle. The integrity of the frame is maintained through the strength of this material that is 200 times stronger than steel.
The Head YOUTEK Graphene Instinct PWR is perfect for beginners and Head has done a lot to make this racquet very powerful. Most of the weight is focused towards the tip of the frame as can be seen on the balance point being 11 points head heavy. The stiffness rating of 70 ensures that much of the energy from the ball impacting the strings are transferred to the ball rather than the frame being flexible and losing some of the energy transfer. The beam width also helps to add power. Beginners can get away with short and slow swings by using this tennis racquet.
