Highlighted by a design that pays tribute to the historic Pro Staff series, the Pro Staff 97 v13 features a new Braid 45 construction that increases precision by adjusting the angle of the double braided fibres for enhanced feel and stability. Two additional upgrades to this racket include a denser string bed that improves consistency on every shot and a new end cap that is used across Wilson’s other performance racket lines for improved comfort and ergonomics.
Whenever we have a customer come into store and they are after a Wilson frame, the next 4 words will usually follow, “What does Federer use?” He uses the 340g RF97 v13 which to most of us mere mortals, is quite heavy. The Pro Staff 97 v13 is a lighter, more manoeuvrable version but will still offer you the same precision and feel.
Perhaps most appealing for longtime fans of the Pro Staff franchise is the presence of red and yellow pinstripes along the throat, an ode to previous designs of this iconic series through the years. Design also features unique exposed carbon fiber weave with gloss finish above the 3 & 9 of the frame for a slick touch.
Please note that this racket does not come with a head cover.
