  • Wonderful feel, great racket for a one-hander.

What customers say about "Features"
Wilson Pro Staff 97 Matte Black Midplus 16x19 Tennis Racquet Strung with Custom String Colors
  • The 97 is just a little lighter than the RF which suits me. I ordered this one from Wilson so I could get the 97 in all-black.
  • Not too light and not too heavy but very stable at the net. I believe this is one of the best all around raquets.
  • The latest Pro Staff97 design is amazing (well balance, good control and feel, plenty of power)
  • I have been playing with Wilson rackets for 30 years and the PS 97 is a great blend of power and feel and one of the best "player's rackets" on the market
  • Love it, stiff, great feelingl. Looking awesome too.
Wilson Pro Staff 97S Tennis Racquet
  • The 18x17 string pattern added some spin but didn't cause the inconsistencies I have found in other Spin Effect racquets.
  • And of course, the stock leather grip gave me good feel!
  • It offers a unique feel with its 18x17 string pattern.
  • I liked the look and feel of the Pro Staff 97S.
  • I love how it rings when you make a good shot.
