The Wilson Pro Staff 97 Countervail Tennis Racquet is the easier to play version of Roger Federer signature Pro Staff. At 11.1 ounces / 315 grams it features excellent plow-through yet due to its head light balance it has the maneuverability needed to allow you to attack the ball. Its thin 21.5mm beam compliments the head light balance and helps with the maneuverability of the Pro Staff 97.
The 16 x 19 offers a reasonably sized sweet spot in its 97 sq. in head. It also offers easy access to spin. The addition of Countervail to this model provides a more comfortable, muted feel that has been very well received. It's been great for good players that have been looking for a tour racquet but are trying to protect their arm. In the Black/White version of the Pro Staff series this is the only model featuring Countervail.
If you are looking for that attacking style of play that Roger has in a more manageable weight the Wilson Pro Staff 97 Countervail is the perfect choice!
