Wilson LAVER CUP Pro Staff RF97 Autograph Ltd Edition Tennis Racket
: In stock
Limited edition blue RF97 as played with by Roger Federer at the 2019 Laver Cup in Geneva.
The legendary Pro Staff RF97 Autograph - a racket specially engineered for Roger Federer, the man who helped design it. Boasting the same specs and playability as the previous generation, this update is distinguished by its bold and elegant simplicity. In addition to Federers laser engraved signature, It has the same matte finish and velvety texture as the previous version.
The 2019 RF97 Autograph deploys Wilson’s timeless Pro Staff formula, including a braided graphite layup, headlight balance, thin beam and Perimeter Weighting System. Toss in a thin leather grip and the result is a truly classic feel. Unlike the iconic 6.0 85, this modern Pro Staff has a slightly wider, more angular beam, giving it a decidedly more powerful delivery than most traditional players racquets. At 340g, Federer’s Pro Staff is loaded with plow-through and stability, allowing you to redirect heavy pace with impressive ease. It also delivers a high level of precision on full cuts, with some genuine put-away power for the attacking player.
Thanks to its headlight balance (9 points!), the RF97 feels surprisingly fast for its weight - a feature that will give topspin players the kind of whippy and explosive acceleration that makes for big spin. On volleys, the RF 97 is not only unfazed by heavy pace, but it possesses enough feel to drop the ball dead. With this update to the Pro Staff RF97 Autograph, Wilson and Federer have created yet another instant classic. Experienced players looking for a surgical weapon with great feel should give this one a serious look.
