Description

A lighter version of Roger Federer's latest 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. 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.

This racquet is Sony Smart Tennis Sensor compatible with the addition of the Pro Staff Tennis Butt Cap. Please indicate in the comment section of your order if you'd like a compatible butt cap included with your order.

Great stick!
5/5
I was curious about the newer line of ProStaffs, and this one was one of my favorites. I liked the weight of this one the most, compared to that of the RF and the LS. The midrange weight suited my game well. I felt the racquet gave me sufficient control, but at the same time, I felt it was a forgiving racquet if I didnt time the ball correctly. Not many negatives to list about this one.

Excellent All-around Racquet
5/5
I am a 4.0 player who is primarily a base-liner that makes occasional forays to the net. I had tried prior Pro-Staffs but had found them too heavy and dead for my taste. This new racquet is a revelation. It is light, stiff and powerful. I get plenty of power and spin on my serve and at the same time, I am able to hit out on my ground-strokes without fearing that I will have trouble controlling the ball. As a 49 year old man, I have old-school, traditional strokes and this racquet is a perfect fit for me. I was using Prince EXO-3 Warrior 100s but have given them up for this Pro Staff. If you are thinking of getting a new racquet, you should demo the Pro Staff 97 not the Autograph version, which I found to be a bit too heavy for me.

Seamless Transition, Better, Bigger
5/5
For those us who - like me - played with the Pro Staff for years lately Ive been following the Mighty Fed, so I played with the 90 for five years, this is a great improvement - but with all the comfort that the old racket had to offer. First, the return. When you face a 100+mph serve coming at you, theres no time to think. With the 90 head, you had also very little - or zero - margin of error. The new racket allows you to actually return the ball without hitting the frame. Second, the serve. if you ever felt youd like to slice it a bit more, add more kick, or brush the ball better - this is your racket. Again, a wider sweet spot area means you can hit those aces again and again. Third, the net game. It was only Stephan Edberg the new racket is another, very important part in Rogers game, in that it offers this very valuable surface area to play with during the transition game. And finally, the wright. I opted for the lighter option note: not the lightest thats another string pat

Good singles racquet

This racquet could be a little stiffer like the RF97, but without the extra weight. Overall, a pretty good racquet - still trying to figure out a good string for this racquet.

Pro Staff 97
3.66666666667/5
Although it is a moderately heavy racquet, with may aid groundstroke drive, it is head light which helps volleys and generation of top spin. It feels great. The only negative feature is that the frame can be scratched easily.
