At 9.1 ounces the Head YOUTEK Graphene Instinct Rev is one of the lightest racquets in the YOUTEK Graphene series of racquets. In fact it is one of the lightest Head tennis racquets and it shows how effective the new Graphene technology is. Graphene has been implemented in the shaft and is not only ultra light, but also 200 times stronger than steel. This allow Head to place more weight in the handle and at the tip of the frame, which is very important to pro players.
The Head YOUTEK Graphene Instinct Rev is well suited for beginners, where maneuverability and a less demanding racquet that offers power on short swings with low racquet speed is important. The balance is 3 points head heavy and that creates some stability to this racquet and players can generate some good power on those forehands at the baseline. The responsiveness at the net makes this racquet well suited for double players and the control is excellent as a result of the flexible frame. Players can endure long matches without arm fatigue as the mixture of control and power is excellent.
