A lighter version of Roger Federer`s updated weapon of choice, the Wilson Pro Staff 97 has a new and improved look to go with the latest iteration of the Pro Staff series. The cosmetics are different at the request of Roger himself as he wanted his racquet to look unique.
Many tour players use the Pro Staff line, however only Roger uses the RF97. It`s a great option for those who want the added pop, forgiveness and spin potential of Federer`s RF 97 Autograph, but aren`t interested in the 12.5 ounce strung weight. That said, the Pro Staff 97 is still a solid frame, weighing in at 11.6 ounces strung.
The 9-point head light balance adds maneuverability, while the braided graphite and kevlar construction allow for exceptional touch and playability. Like all of the new Pro Staff models, Wilson classifies the 97 in their `Attacker Player` segment, making it perfect for players seeking a feel-oriented racquet.
