Wilson Pro Staff Team racket

Features and specifications of the Wilson Pro Staff Team (280) tennis racket

2021 Wilson Pro Staff Team tennis racket

From a short research that we did last week we noticed that the 2021 Wilson Pro Staff Team racket is quite rare to find and can't be bought in all markets around the globe. 

For many tennis fans and most professional players the Pro Staff Team wouldn't be of any interest due to its more forgiving approach aimed at recreational players. Still, we decided to spend some time and take closer look into this quite interesting racket. 

First of all, lets start with the specs:

Wilson Pro Staff Team - product specifications

Head Size99.98 in² / 645 cm²

What we liked most about the Pro Staff Team tennis racket is its design. It kept the simple and elegant design of previous Pro Staff models and in its latest generation is entirely painted in black. Very similarly to the Wilson Pro Staff 97LS that we used and tested couple of years ago, this design and paintjob seem to be a real classic and not age with years at all. 

The main difference from the rest of the Pro Staff family is the head size. For the Team version Wilson decided to go with a bigger head and it is actually the only 100 racket from the Pro Staff series that is currently offered. This might be a great news for intermediate players who want to try (and probably stay) with a Pro Staff racket as they have been always somehow associated with more advanced players and professionals from the tour. 

Wilson Pro Staff Team - product price 

Wilson Pro Staff Team is one of the cheapest frames in this model line. For European customers retail price would be 140 Euro (often discounted at around 120E). 
The Pro Staff Team is also offered in Australia where prices vary around  A$150.

As you can see the whole 2021 Wilson lineup for the Pro Staff models is designed the same way, so we guess that is what customers liked in the previous generations after experimenting with white or red stripes on the side of the frame. 

Please note that the Wilson Pro Staff Team racket does not incorporate the same braided graphite and carbon technologies which are kept for the more expensive 97-inch models from the Pro Staff family.
