It’s almost impossible to find the perfect racket. Everyone’s different, so there’s always going to be some degree of compromise – and a single measurement not being quite right can turn a potentially great racket into one that’s just “okay”. But what if you didn’t have to compromise? What if you could tweak every attribute of your racket until it was absolutely right?
That’s the opportunity afforded by HEAD’s ADAPTIVE racket series, which allows you to customise your racket to the Nth degree. You can adjust the weight, balance, length, swingweight, and string pattern until you get the exact feel you want.
Utilising advanced 3D carbon engineering in combination with specialised grommets, the new Instinct provides more stability than ever before, giving you greater control over its inherent power. The bumper and bridge sections of the racket seamlessly integrate with the frame, streamlining its performance and working with the grommets to dampen vibrations. And that’s in addition to the latest Graphene Touch technology, which makes sure you receive only the relevant sensory information through the racket handle for exceptional feel and touch. All that tech is dressed up in one of the best looking paint jobs around, using multiple shades of blue with a pop of green to complete the signature asymmetric HEAD look.

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.
