T.O have a sale, buy 2 RF97 tux versions for $150 each. I can weigh and spec both and keep the lightest (hoping Wilson QC gives me one about 340g strung with 325W. Am i expecting too much, even from Wilson?!)

Have read the tux version swings "lighter" or faster to swing than the previous ones...... anyone with these versions can comment on how the black/white tux compares, and how it plays?

thanks

There is no difference in playability from the tux version to the all black version in my opinion. I have played extensively with both. Roger claims differently and who are we to argue with the Maestro!

Didn’t play the original red/black version and notice a difference with that one did you Geoff?

Have only hit the first version.

I have played with the RF97 since the original release of the red black version design by @PeterFig in my opinion there is no difference in playability from version to version.

Ive ordered the hand select RF from TW. The lightest they could find (unstrung) was 337.5g. I think you’re barking up the wrong tree looking for 340g strung, but you can ask.

What will they do now anyway, Roger doesn't want to play with the white version lol, so I think sales are going to be quite poor.

Do you think they will bring the black one into sales again?

i got the black/white rf.. its my favorite of the 3, the red/black is my second favorite,, the black/black is my least favorite of the 3
when ever possible i try to play test them side by side usually just get to try 2 of them,,
1 time i got to try them all side(r/b) x side(b/b) x side(b/w)
the b/b feels heaviest 2me, r/b second heaviest, b/w was the easiest to swing

the material fatigue from the r/b to b/w rfs might have affected feel, who knows
its a personal choice i guess?!!! since we've been told that they are the same weight,,??? but 2me their was a noticeable difference, small but noticeable

my advise though, go with what looks good 2 you, and or a good deal$$,, after a few times youll get used to the weight

Yeah I know, maybe 350g is a little more realistic?!

No probs. If one of them is way under spec weight and you don’t like it, will give you 150 bucks for it!

I have heard that the RF97 will be all black and the PS97 and PS97L will be the tuxedo.
