A new Roger Federer Autograph racquet is part of
a Pro Staff line of four models from Wilson that is being introduced to
retailers this month.
After three years of development and dozens of
prototypes, Roger Federer and Wilson officially announced the new Wilson
Pro Staff line of rackets, which they collaborated in developing. The
new Wilson Pro Staff RF 97 Roger Federer Autograph delivers the precise
feel Federer demands with a larger sweet spot and more power.
The racquet will be unveiled closer to the
projected October 1, 2014 in-store delivery date.
The re-engineered Pro Staff models feature a 26
percent wider racket beam providing for a significant boost in power.
Compared to Federerís previous racket, the Wilson Pro Staff RF 97
Autograph is seven percent larger, resulting in a 10 percent larger
sweet spot that consistently produces more power for Federer and for
tennis enthusiasts. Wilsonís use of braided graphite and Kevlar maintain
the consistent feel that players have come to know in the Pro Staff
Secretly, Wilson hopes the success of the Roger
Federer Autograph will match that of Wilsonís Jack Kramer Autograph
model. It became the best-selling racquet of all time. It was so
successful that eventually Wilson bought out Kramerís contract and
Kramer used the proceeds to buy a golf club in Chino, California.
