Wilson has updated Grigor Dimitrov’s racquet of choice, the Pro Staff 97S, and given it the same striking cosmetic design as the new Pro Staff 97. Its minimal matte black paint is accented nicely by glossy red on the racquet head’s 3 and 9 o’clock positions. Wilson has also slightly tweaked some of the specs on this frame. Its new 6 point head light balance means the racquet has a lower swing weight than its predecessor making for a more maneuverable and faster swinging racquet. The thin 19.5” wide box-beam remains. Meaning its classic Pro Staff look and feel also remains. The unique 18×17 Spin Effect string pattern is also back in the second generation of this racquet, so this frame still offers lots of spin potential. Those that liked the previous version are sure to love this new faster swinging version of the Pro Staff 97S. Those looking for a classic feeling racquet with lots of spin potential should also find plenty to like in this racquet.
