The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Wilson Pro Staff 97 V13 is a user friendly racquet for intermediate and advanced players looking to get into the more traditional players racquets. It offers a more moderate swingweight and slightly stiffer response to help generate more pace and topspin that is typical of the class. It does retain the great control of Pro Staff racquets of the past with its smaller 97 sq in head size to give players confidence to go for small targets.

Ideal for
  • Controlled response gives confidence to go for small targets
  • Moderate swingweight helps generate topspin
  • Slice backhands have great bite
Not ideal for
  • Overly stiff for a control oriented players racquet
  • Small Sweetspot

Highlighted by a design that pays tribute to the historic Pro Staff series, the Pro Staff 97 v13 features a new Braid 45 construction that increases precision by adjusting the angle of the double braided fibers for enhanced feel and stability. Two additional upgrades to this racket include a denser string bed that improves consistency on every shot and a new end cap that is used across Wilson's other performance racket lines for improved comfort and ergonomics. Perhaps most appealing for longtime fans of the Pro Staff franchise is the presence of red and yellow pinstripes along the throat, an ode to previous designs of this iconic series through the years. Design also features unique exposed carbon fiber weave with gloss finish above the 3 & 9 of the frame for a slick touch.

When it comes to hitting with the pro staff v13 racquet, I found some things I really enjoyed about the racquet and some others that took me a while to adjust to. -Love this with serves and volleys. The serves came in heavy, and I felt I had excellent control of my volleys, like my racquet was listening to where I... Read more

What a gem!
5 /5
Allison is fantastic! She is super knowledgeable, friendly, and gave great suggestions. Allison took the time to understand what I was looking for, my likes/dislikes and then gave recommendations based on really listening to my needs. And she was spot on! Her recommendations were so great, I had trouble deciding but she was there again, helping me to narrow down to final choices. I have used Allison a few times and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again. It was by sheer coincidence I got connected to Allison, who actually lives fairly close to me, and besides a knowledgeable expert for my tennis needs, I feel like I’ve gained a friend. She checks in periodically and I love that personal touch.

I had no idea this service existed, and after a couple clicks starting a racket search I landed on Curated with Russell as my expert helper. I was very surprised to get an immediate response to my question and then repeated follow up. He gave me detailed recommendations and made it so simple for me to choose, even by helping me with my shopping cart. This was an incredibly helpful service with a very friendly, extremely knowledgeable expert to guide my choice. And the best part is that the price of the racket was a great deal! Very pleased with this service, and particularly Russell's help. Will definitely recommend to others! Thanks!
