The new Pro Staff’s sleek matte black finish combines with red accents to bring the latest version of the classic racket to life.
Boasting all the same technologies as the Federer Autograph edition Pro Staff, the 97S weighs in at a lighter 310 grams unstrung, giving you the chance to sample Federer-level performance without needing Federer levels of ability. Don’t be mistaken, this is still a pretty weighty frame, but one that’s far more easily controlled than the Autograph. It is though 6pts head light compared to the previous model’s 3pts, making it even more manoeuvrable and suited to all-court play.
The racket’s Braided Graphite + Basalt construction offers stability for block returns and volleys, while its headlight balance gives access to power when swung quickly. The S version also features Wilson’s Spin Effect Technology, increasing snapback and spin potential.
Headsize: 97 sq. in.
String Pattern: 18x17
Weight (U): 310g
Balance: 325mm / 6pts HL
Beam: 19.5mm Flat

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.
