Anyone watching tennis this year has been wondering what the heck is going on with Roger Federer’s new racquet. What’s under that blacked out frame he’s been playing with on tour? What are the specs? What’s it going to look like? Well, after years in the making, the highly anticipated Wilson Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph has finally been revealed!
The most notable evolution in Roger’s new racquet of choice is the switch from a 90 to 97 square inch head size, providing a larger sweetspot for more power and forgiveness. This allows him to swing big at the ball with less chance of mishitting off the frame.
The Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph is also going to take some skill and muscle to wield! Weighing in at 12 ounces unstrung (!!), it’s going to be one of the heaviest racquets on the market.
Listed below are the rest of the target specs…(Please note, these are unstrung target specs provided by Wilson. Individual racquets may be slightly different)
Headsize: 97 sq. in
Weight: 12.0 oz unstrung (340g)
Balance: 12 pts Head Light
String Pattern: 16 x 19
Beam: 21.5 mm Flat Beam
