The personal racquet of a 20-time 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 racquet caters to avid Roger Federer and Pro Staff fans by maintaining the signature precision and pure feel emblematic of the Pro Staff series. Racquet 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.

Featuring a design that summons the heritage of the iconic Pro Staff franchise from years past, the all-new Pro Staff series enhances precision while maintaining the classic feel beloved by its users worldwide. The key ingredient: double braided fibers arranged at 45 degree angles that net incredible ball pocketing feel and stability.

Players should expect more pop from the 97 square inch head, and slightly wider 21.5mm beam, but with the same great control and feel expected from the legendary flat beam, Braided Graphite + Kevlar, Pro Staff construction. 12.6 ounce strung weight and 336 swingweight for the aggressive player seeking extra heft in their frame.

Pro Staff upgrade
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

In order to keep pace with the game and my student athlete's it was time to upgrade my pro staff rackets with this newer version. Immediately I could feel the additional power and control making me more confident and competitive with my opponents. I provide private lessons and coach the local HS team. I received my training at Van Der Meer Tennis Academy, Hilton Head, South Carolina. I purchased two of these rackets but I will only submit one review.

The racket has a lot of power. The Negative points to the racket include the standard grip that comes with it is very thin and unless you put an over wrap on it it will rub against your skin. The second drawback is that the racket scratches very easily and since the paint is black it is noticeable.

Decent racket so far but I lean more toward an earlier version of RF97. This one feels al muted in terms of feel and power. Same swing on this racket seems to give less power than the older RF97 or prostaff rackets. Might change with additional stringing tweaks in coming months

Love the feel of the racquet, it definitely feels like the old 6.0/6.1 from 90’s. My only complaint is that the paint chips very easily and stands out against the black paint job.
