Overall, this Pro Staff 97 was comfortable, firm and stable enough to put the ball away.” Jaye continued, “This racquet is plush, solid and comfortable. The frame’s flex gave me the confidence to stick my volleys, and I felt like I should move my game up to the net instead of grinding on the baseline.”
In this way, which Wilson Pro Staff is the best?
The most popular model is the Pro Staff 97 v13. Here are the specifications for this racquet. This is a relatively heavy tennis racquet, built for control and feel. The 16×19 string pattern allows you to generate plenty of spin on your groundstrokes, or slice on your backhand like Federer himself.

Who Should Use Pro Staff?
Who should use the Pro Staff 97 V13? Fast arm, aggressive players who are looking for plenty of feedback and feel on their shots who can manage a reasonably heavy, stiff frame. That stiffness will give you plenty of power, but you need decent stroke mechanics to generate it.
37 Years of Pro Staff
Having been around for 37 years, it’s best known for its classic double braid of carbon and aramid fibers (commonly known as graphite/Kevlar®), and of course the many greats who use(d) it: Chris Evert, Stefan Edberg, Jim Courier, Steffi Graf, Pete Sampras, Roger Federer.
The Burn has not been discontinued. The Burn 100S, Burn 100LS and Burn 100ULS remain in our line!
For a racket in its weight class, it has good stability and of course, great spin and power. I gave the Wilson Burn 100LS a 7.5 out of 10 for groundstrokes. It’s a great racket for an intermediate or advanced junior who’s looking to be an aggressive baseliner.
