The Head YouTek Graphene Instinct MP is endorsed by Maria Sharapova and Tomas Berdych and is perfect for the player who wants a perfectly balanced racket with increased power and superior handling.
This newly-updated version within the Instinct series comes with new core technology. Discovered in 2004, Graphene consists of a single two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms. This material has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, which makes it the ultimate substance for creating new HEAD tennis racket frames with exceptional properties. Graphene technology allows for the first time an optimal redistribution of weight in HEAD rackets. Through the use of Graphene in the shaft, the weight in the middle part of the racket can be reduced. Instead, weight can be shifted from the racket shaft to more functionally relevant areas in the tip and grip. This unique construction provides players with an unmatched manoeuvrability and an increased swing weight.
In other words, a racket with Graphene is easier to swing and enables even more powerful shots. And it will give your opponent a really hard time.
YOUTEKTechnology infuses d3o a smart material, made from specially designed molecules, which dramatically change when in use. d3o is a soft material that locks together upon racquet impact. Located in the shaft of the racquet, d3o reacts to the needs of a player in nano seconds, providing a softer touch and better feel. Whether your game is aggressive and adventurous or consistent and smooth, YouTek enhances your performance and brings out the best in you.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
