Now in its 13th generation, the Pro Staff remains one of the most respected rackets in tennis, with its unique combination of a classic feel and modern performance technologies providing an unrivalled playing experience. This latest revision features a new Braid 45 system to bind the frame’s graphite and Kevlar mix together, altering the angle at which the fibres intersect to give greater stability on ball impact and more of a “pocketing” sensation. Intelligent string mapping provides the racket with a denser string bed, offering even more precision across the racket face, enhancing feel and control for every type of shot. Looks-wise, the next-gen Pro Staff combines old and new, with traditional pinstripes along the throat and exposed carbon fibre weave at the tip. The Pro Staff 97L features a redesigned ergonomic end cap for additional comfort as you manoeuvre the racket, and at 290g, it’s ideal for players who want to experience the trademark Pro Staff feel at a slightly lighter weight.

Features Include:

• Headsize: 626 sq cm / 97 sq in
• Weight: 290g / 10.2oz
• Balance: 325mm
• Length: 680mm / 27in
• String Pattern: 16/19

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:

Grip Size
USA (inches)
4 1/8
4 2/8
4 3/8
4 4/8
4 5/8

Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
