As the sport of tennis evolves, so does the Pro Staff, which has been developed over 3 years by Wilson Labs, working closely with Roger Federer to refine every aspect of the racket for the next generation of tennis. Designed to be the ultimate ‘Attacker’ racket, the new Wilson Pro Staff line is suited for a variety of attack-style players, from avid players to youth striving to improve their game.
The Pro Staff 97 LS comes with a lighter weight and more manoeuvrable frame. Together with Spin Effect Technology, it packs more power and delivers precision spin for players looking to attack the competition.
Spin Effect is a complete racket technology and a ground-breaking new advancement, which allows players to produce significantly more spin without changing their swing. Wilson Spin Effect Rackets can add over 200 RPMs of rotation on every shot, giving 2 inches more net clearance and causes the ball to drop quicker, which in turn extends the court and gives players 12 inches more margin for error.
The Wilson Pro Staff 97 LS is compatible with the new Sony Smart Tennis Sensor, which records accurate shot data alongside real-time video.
Spanning 31 years and steeped in history and tradition, the Pro Staff has played an important part in over 200 Grand Slam victories. Of these, Roger Federer has accounted for 17, in addition to 79 ATP career singles titles, and winning a Gold medal for doubles in Beijing 2008 and a Silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
