INSTINCT+ BLADE FL HANDLE
Unbeatable control with attacking power! Instinct+ is specifically designed for the attacking player who is tired of blasting balls off the table. A special blend of soft and medium hardness wood gives this blade a medium degree of flexibility while maintaining a steady short game.
Highly recommended. Not going to be on the same level as hundred + dollar blades, but it is hard to justify spending so much when you get so much out of $16 dollars for this. Great for a developing player, I'd rate it as an ALL+ blade. It doesn't have a lot of flex and as others have noted, the sweet spot seems slightly small. The vibrations go right to your hand. But these are all things you would expect from a blade at this price. Perhaps try the 5-ply instinct for a slightly softer and more flexible option, which will also be slower but probably have a nicer feel. I still like the feel personally, a huge step from even middle of the pack premade bats. I find the handle comfortable and attractive as well. For what it is, it has excellent value.
