I'm really interested in the Head Microgel Instinct

Can anyone give some feedback?

Re: Self learning vs Coaching

Re: Self learning vs Coaching

Re: Can't decide between Wilson nTour 95 or Head Liquidmetal Radical

You see, I WOULD consider checking into the Head racquets (or any other brands that is), but the tennis instructor in my community is sponsored by Wilson. He sells high-end Wilson racquets with...

Re: Can't decide between Wilson nTour 95 or Head Liquidmetal Radical

Re: Can't decide between Wilson nTour 95 or Head Liquidmetal Radical

One of us has something mixed up. I held the nTour 95 (Orange racket with black grip) in my hand and its very lightweight compared to my Prince racket.
