Wilson pro staff RF97 vs pro staff 90?


New User
I am 16 years old(almost 17) and have been playing tennis for a couple of years. I started playing tennis when I was 12 years old, then I played almost every day. I am left handed and have a one-handed backhand. I play mostly from the baseline but I am really trying to hit winners and I only come forward to finish off points and put the ball away. I dont volley very often. I used a Babolat pure drive gt for a while but I switched to the
Wilson blx pro staff six one 90. I have been using this racket for about 2 years.
I tennis very often so my strings break quit often. Should I buy a second blx pro staff six one 90? Or should I maybe get some pro staff 95's, or some Wilson pro staff RF97 autograhp's? Is the new pro staff RF97 autograph any good? Both the 95 and 97 are a bit more forgiving. Or should I just get a second pro staff 90 so if my string breaks I can go on with the same racket.(because each racket plays different)

If you dont have any problems with your current frame, and like it, stick with it.

If you play alot or in any competitive way, I recommend at least 2 of the same frames.

If you're breaking strings alot, you can do a number of things. 1) Verify that the racket is being strung properly
2) Check the grommets for rough edges
3) Use a more durable string (thicker gauges, polys, etc)
4) Buy a stringer and string more frequently!

I would buy 2 more of the 90 frames and keep developing that way (if you think the strings are the issue). However I don't think the pro staff 90 is a good frame for a baseline basher and would suggest switching to a larger frame if you have any hesitations. A good hybrid between the pure drive and pro staff is the pure strike 100 (leaded up). It is also a more poly friendly racquet which means less breaking strings

If you want to get better in tennis, stop trying to hit winners. The easiest players to beat are those that constantly try to hit winners. Hit a simple ball to them, and they rip it long/wide. If you want to get better, learn how to move the ball around and how to dismantle your opponent.
