The Wilson Pro Staff 97L Countervail (CV) brings the precision and classic feel of the Wilson Pro Staff line to every player. Designed to resemble the RF97 Autograph, the 97L CV has the same matt black finish with glossy black paint at 3 and 9 on the racquet head and Pro Staff script on the throat but on a frame that's under 11 ounces. The lighter weight of the 97L CV plays very fast making it perfect for players that have trouble using Roger's RF97 Autograph or the Wilson Pro Staff 97 CV. Countervail has been added to the braided graphite of the 97L to reduce vibration and fatigue. The 16x19 string pattern brings classic control and easy access to spin to anyone's game making it a very versatile racquet. While the racquet can unleash great power in the right hands, it does not have the same plow-through and stability of the RF97 Autograph or the 97 CV, it is extremely fast cutting through the air thanks to its strung weight and balance, and perfect for doubles players at net. A truly versatile player's style racquet, the Wilson Pro Staff 97L CV is fast, comfortable and plays with great control.
