315g version of Roger Federer's Pro Staff, with revolutionary Countervail technology.
Colour: Matte Black Velvet / White
The new Pro Staff has a stunning tuxedo-look finish and is equipped with everything you’ll need to refine your game. The vintage design is bold enough to demand attention on and off the court, yet simplistic enough to make your performance the centre of attention.
Designed by the 20 Grand Slam winner himself, the new Pro Staff 97CV has been created to inspire players to even higher levels of performance. The new Pro Staff gives you the extra edge you need against your opponents, the confidence that you have a racket that will be able to take your gameplan and execute it perfectly. The new Wilson Pro Staff 97 CV offers more play-ability than the signature RF97 Autograph while maintaining the gorgeous black and white decal, and is designed for players who look to attack relentlessly but enjoy using a racket that has more manoeuvrability. The 315g unstrung weight and 97 square inch head give you a large sweetspot and headsize, while the Head-Light balance offers you the pure, classic feel that the Pro Staff line is renowned for, as well as unrivalled control.
Designed for passionate players that leave everything on the court, the new Pro Staff lets you find your rhythm early on in the game, letting you dictate every move, fine-tune your performance in-game and re-invent yourself as you play, creating a performance that means your shots are smooth, sharp and full of power.
This Countervail model distributes impact shock throughout the racket and prevents it reaching the players arm. The result is reduced muscle fatigue and recovery time. The energy maximising technology does not affect the feel, flex and control, so will be a natural upgrade to current Pro Staff users.
Play Your Heart Out.
If you want the tennis world to listen up, then make noise when it’s time to play by putting your whole heart into it. It’s how you go from good...to great...to rock-star status. And it doesn’t hurt to be armed with the most classic of instruments: Roger’s legendary new Pro Staff.
History of the Wilson Pro-Staff
Engineered in Chicago, the Wilson Pro-Staff line is one of the most legendary names in tennis. Used by some of the finest players in tennis history, the Pro Staff has long been known as Wilson's finest product. While the original Jack Kramer Autograph model is the first Pro Staff racket, the Pro Staff 85 was the first well-known graphite version, and was established as a legendary racquet by Pete Sampras, who used it throughout his entire career. Following Sampras, players such as Jimmy Connors, Jim Courier, Stefan Edberg, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Mary Pierce and Roger Federer have used Wilson Pro Staffs, making it the choice of champions.
