Wilson Pro Staff 97s 2016
Co-designed by Roger Federer, the Pro Staff delivers the pure, classic feel players have come to love but with an all-new uncontaminated design. meticulous in detail and bold in its beauty, the new Pro Staff introduces a whole new dimension of engineered paint finishes and textures with matte black velvet, chrome touches, and laser engraving never before seen in tennis.
The Wilson Pro Staff 97s 2016 is one of the most maneuverable racquets in the 2016 Pro Staff line. This version provides you with not only extremely quick responsiveness, but also massive spin from the Spin Effect string pattern technology (18 X 17). With only a slightly head light balance (3 pts), the Pro Staff 97s delivers a rock solid feel at impact along with amazing stability for a sub 11 ounce strung weight. The classic ultra-thin 19.5 mm constant beam has has that old school control, feel, and controllable power with none of the harshness. This is a lighter, thinner, more maneuverable version of Roger's frame, and still rock solid stable, powerful, and an awesome spin generator. The Wilson Pro Staff 97s is yet another great addition to the venerable Pro Staff line for 2016/2017.

Using fewer cross strings than mains, this technology allows the main strings to deflect more for maximum snapback and greater energy transfer back to the ball. The result is outstanding spin and power driving balls deep into the court with the control you need. This is the first racquet system that actually increases the ball Rpm without players needing to radically change swing speed, increase tension, or lower head weight. Design form follows function for more spin with no increase in player effort!
