    I have seen the PS97LS. It's the same paint job. Given this, the PS97 should be no different

    The color choices in the 97 RF is just plain terrible. It looks completely like a cheap $49 racquet that you find at a retail discount store like Walmart or Target.

    I been hitting with it; and I don't like it at all! It bulky and ugly at the same time. The super bright fluorescent red is too much for me to feel comfortable using this racquet! The color looks like it was part of the color scheme of the current Head racquets!

    It does hit nicely however! But the colors and the bulky feel is a turn off!

    I am into colors, I don't like any racquet that is dull egg color sheen. Looks cheap! But if a racquet company start releasing attractive glossy frames, I will be buying again! Worse color is a black matte color frame!

    Umm... No one questioned whether or not that was a Pro Staff 6.0 85, genius.

    Care to elaborate? I do know @PeterFig is always the best and true guy to consult on this potential set of changes

    Apparently Fed will have his own line of rackets within Wilson (not unlike Jordan and Nike). Rackets for all levels of play too. Pretty cool I suppose.

    No idea about prices, No idea about customize-able rackets (better have an 11oz Blade option in there X_X)

    While I can't comment on future / unreleased products, I will just say there is a large amount of incorrect information here. :)

    Wilson or Head should get ahead of crowd and offer pro stock series racquet directly to the public! Think of the markup Wilson or Head could make on these pro Stocks! No marketing or advertising needed either! LOL!
