I've switched again
I decided that the winter testing I did wasn't extensive enough, I didn't try the Prince, Dunlop or Technifibre rackets because I assumed they would be awful, and I hadn't tried all of the new Yonex rackets.
I really vibed with the V-Core Pro for a while, and the 305g E-Zone 98 was fun to hit with, but overall neither gave me enough of what I was looking for. The Technifibre rackets felt very odd to say the least, the Dunlop rackets were as useless as expected and the Princes were boardy beyond belief. I miss the days when Prince made good rackets
I had another look at the Head Rackets and tried some different setups. The new extreme is still a hard pass, but I enjoyed the new speed and instinct iterations. Both really gave me the maneuverability that I wanted, with the instinct providing me with easier power and spin, with the speed giving me better feel and control. I have yet to decide between the two
I'm leaning towards the instinct because as a naturally flatter hitter, the powerful instinct beefs up and plays to that, whilst still giving me a decent amount of spin which is needed in the era we are in now where most amateur players are spin machines or junk ballers. I enjoy the control and feel of the speed, but aside from my lob, my other touch shots like the drop-volley and the slice are just average and no racket will make them any better.
