Last Friday, the highly anticipated Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph launched around the world for pre-sale! There has been chatter around this racquet for months, and finally, it is here (or at least available for pre-order)! With specs that point to a strung weight of almost 13 ounces (with an overgrip and dampener) and a hefty swingweight, some players out there might be wondering if they have what it takes to swing this stick. But I’m here to tell you, it really does make you betterer!
Let’s put it this way, I’m slowly starting to learn that a higher swingweight may be just what I need to help control some of my raw power and put balls away even deeper and heavier on our slow TW court. With that being said, this racquet hasn’t really been targeted to the female player, but that doesn’t mean she won’t enjoy it. Since our TW gents took this one out for the formal playtest, I’m here to give perspective from the ladies’ side of things!
