The Wilson Pro Staff 97L is ideal for intermediate players looking for a user-friendly entry point into the legendary Pro Staff universe. This racket looks like the one Federer uses on tour, complete with the same velvety paint finish, laser engraving and chrome touches. This stick is lighter and faster than Federer's RF97 Autograph, making it easier for less advanced players to load the ball with pace and spin. Made with a graphite construction and head light balance, this racket comes with Countervail, a material technology designed to reduce impact vibrations and muscle fatigue. Taken together, these details give the 97L both an amazing look and feel. The racket has an impressive stability for its weight class. Full swings deliver easily targeting with just enough pace and spin to keep your opponent off-balance. The light weight feel of this racket comes in handy on service returns where the 97L whips around extremely fast to deliver accurate targeting.
|Please note that this racket comes without a protective head cover|

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.
