Introducing the lighter version of Roger Federer’s choice racket! Call it a Holy Grail for those who want to experience incredible precision and sublime feel but in a lighter, more manageable racket. With its speedy headlight balance, the Pro Staff 97 CV was designed to accelerate very smoothly and efficiently through the strike of the ball.

Of course no Pro Staff would be complete without Wilson’s special Kevlar/graphite layup, a tried and tested formula which lends the 97 its distinctively crisp yet slightly muted feel. From the baseline this racket has been designed to swing easier than Federer’s RF 97, a fact that will enable a wider range of players to produce effective pace and spin. The combination of speed and stability makes this a very user friendly racket at net. Factor in the compact 97 square inch head and the rackets classic Pro Staff feel and touch artists should have all the ingredients needed to drop volleys on a dime.

The Pro Staff 97 Countervail combines the sleek tuxedo look of Roger’s new Pro Staff RF97 with the enhanced precision, consistency and energy derived from Countervail. The next evolution of ultimate performance has arrived to the Pro Staff franchise.
