Hello, tennis fans! In today's consumer review we are taking a look at my very own tennis racket - the Head Graphene 360 Instinct S. I got it brand new two months ago and had about 20 games with it so it is time to share my personal impressions and give you first hand feed back.

Also, I made a short Head Graphene 360 Instinct S video review for you and I hope you will appreciate the information.

Gameplay
With unstrung weight of 285g the Graphene 360 Instinct S is definitely not meant for professional players on the tour. I am a mid-range amateur player and take part in amateur tournaments couple of times in the summer. Most of the time I play single and it is just once in a while that I take part in doubles matches. 

I should say I am pretty much satisfied with how this Instinct handles on the court. It is easy to swing and it is quite maneuverable. For someone with shoulder problems like myself it is quite forgiving and I don't feel tension after longer rallies.

It is also pretty good racket from the baseline. I found it quite easy to generate topspin deeper back in the court. Flat shots are OK though definitely not among the Instinct S strengths.

Compared with the Wilson Ultra 100L which I used for a whole season (2019) and still keep it for a backup racket, the Instinct S has a slightly smaller sweet spot and also I feel like it has a thicker beam which makes it more stable. But honestly I prefer thinner beams when possible (loved the puristic feeling of my other ex-racket, the Wilson Pro Staff 97LS).

What I don't like about the Head Graphene 360 Instinct S

There are couple small things that I would change in the Instinct S if I could, and here they are:
  • I wish it had a slightly bigger sweet spot
  • I would definitely appreciate a thinner beam
  • Head's grip 3 feels a bit larger than what I used on other brand's handles
