The long awaited Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph finally shows its true colors. For over a year, people were wondering what this racquet would actually look like and what the specs would be. It features a strung weight of 12.4 ounces, 12 pts headlight balance and a hefty swing weight of 337. At 0.9 ounces heavier than the Pro Staff 97 and 1.8 ounces heavier than the Pro Staff 97LS, the RF 97 is not for the faint of heart. Wilson also continues the tradition of using Braided Graphite and Kelvar in these latest Pro Staff racquets.
