The Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph (2017) has been worked on tirelessly by Roger and Wilson designers around the world to breathe new life into the legendary Pro Staff family. This racquet is step by step as powerful and precise as its predecessor. The heavy static strung weight (12.5 ounces) and swingweight (335) makes this an ideal racquet for any player that wants to control the rally. The balance compensates for the heaviness of the frame and lets you swing freely through the ball. Spin is readily accessible thanks to the 16 x 19 string pattern and the thin beam provides plenty of feel and responsiveness. A true modern players racquet that is excellent from the baseline, serve, at net or on approach shots, the redesigned RF 97 is a must for any serious tennis players. The new sleek design embodies the same elegance and style that is associated with Roger Federer. The racquet's look is grounded in two high quality paints, Black Velvet and Tuxedo Black. The matte Black Velvet paint provides a smooth, soft, light-absorbing finish that has been engineered to create a "feel," a tactile experience, for attacking players like Roger. The inside of the racquet's throat carries Roger Federer's signature and an image of his face; complimented by "Designed with Roger in Switzerland. Engineered in Chicago." Constructed out of Braided Kevlar and Graphite, the Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph is the ultimate player's racquet designed by Roger for you.
