The personal racket of a 20x major champion, the Pro Staff RF97 v13 delivers premium performance and sleek design fit for a legend. Featuring the same specifications and composition as its predecessor, this racket caters to avid Roger Federer and Pro Staff fans by maintaining the signature precision and pure feel emblematic of the Pro Staff series. Racket design sports black elastic base, exposed carbon fiber weave with gloss finish at the tip above the 3 & 9, and two-toned pinstripes along the throat with a modern font treatment.
With the Pro Staff RF97 Autograph v13 Wilson updates Roger Federer's racquet with a new cosmetic but keeps everything else the same, including the magical target specs and sublime feel that Roger Federer helped engineer with the original red/black version. Like the previous generation, this update features the same silky texture and elegant simplicity. It also features a small silhouette of Federer, laser engraved graphics and a reproduction of Federer's signature. No classic Pro Staff would be complete without Wilson's timeless Pro Staff formula, including a braided graphite/aramid layup, headlight balance, thin beam and Perimeter Weighting System. Featuring a slightly wider, more angular beam than the traditional box beam of Original 6.0s, this racquet blends surgical control and feel with a dash modern power. From the baseline, the RF97's 12.6 ounce weight and beefy 330+ swingweight make it perfect for the advanced ball striker who wants tour level stability. In addition to surgical control and mindless touch, player's who can leverage the mass will find massive pace and genuine put-away power. At net this stick does not get pushed around. Simple blocks result in penetrating replies, and there is enough touch and pop to hit every shot in the book. You'll also find the required power, spin and precision on serve to rack up free points. Ultimately, there is a reason why Wilson hasn't made big changes to Federer's RF97 - you can't improve upon perfection.
