Those looking for the same great look and design as Roger Federer's racquet, but in a much lighter-weight and more user friendly package, will love the new Pro Staff 97L CV.
The same sleek, black tuxedo-influenced design found on Roger Federer's Pro Staff RF97 is used on the Pro Staff 97L CV. However, the specs of this racquet will make it much more appealing to intermediate and low advanced players than Roger's hefty frame. Coming in at 10.2 ounces (290 grams) unstrung, this racquet has enough weight to produce solid shots and remain stable when returning hard struck balls, but will provide a little help to those players that have trouble generating racquet head speed with heavier frames. This racquet also possess a slightly wider beam width (23mm) than the other members of its family (Pro Staff RF97 and Pro Staff 97), resulting in a slightly crisper feel (69 RA flex rating) and a little bit easier access to power. However, the addition of Countervail–a shocking dampening technology that reduces vibration and in-turn muscle fatigue–makes sure the racquet remains arm friendly. The 97 square inch head provides a nice sized sweetspot as well as plenty of controllable power.
