That was a few weeks ago when my coach was talking to a guy she knows that who works for Wilson who is also a stringer about strings he recommends for my racquet, when I was looking to try new strings.. after that he gave her a really good recommendation about luxilon alu power and some good cross recommendations which are working great for me.

Anyway he asked her what kind of racquet I have and I have a pro staff 97.. she said what racquet I have and also how I weighted it etc... and that I probably plan on buying new racquets next summer and im annoyed that pro staff 97s are black and white now because I like the black one much better and its hard to get.
And he basically told her that im in luck because Wilson plans to release new pro staffs in 2020 that will be black, and also that he can get good deals if I want to buy etc...

So basically thats all I know, that apparently there will be new pro staff 97s in 2020 and that the color will be black, but nothing beyond that, don't even know if its just a paintjob or if the racquets will be different or whatnot, thats why I opened this thread to see if anyone knows more info.

hmmm..... interesting

The 2015 ProStaff 97 was the only one worth playing with imo. Hopefully if they do decide to drop a new one it will be much nicer than the crap they put out last.

You going to buy new rackets for better cosmetic or for better playability?

Hoping there will be some upgrades tho and not just a PJ, especially after the success of the Clash and the Blade v7.
Unlike the Blade there are 2 points that could be improved:

- Lower stiffness rate (probably around 64).
- Tighter 16x19 pattern since all versions have a very open string bed with an erratic response.

- Slightly more head heavy 5/6 pts.
- Leather grip like the old ones.
These last 2 are more subjective tho.

I have a 2015 and 2016 version. 2015 feels crisper and livelier. I prefer the 2016 as it feels more stable but probably due to wilson's horrible QC, as it's heavier and more HH.
