I bought this racquet because I had been using the old version of this same racquet. I love the new, sleek black look. This racquet is great for generating spin on my groundstrokes and good power on my serve. It is very steady and maneuverable when at the net. This is a great racquet for players who are in the 4.0-4.5 range.

My 12 year old daughter said it was the best racquet that she was. Before we tried a few different types of Babolat.

Since Federer and Wilson just released a couple new versions of the RF racquets I wanted to test them both at the same time to see which one I liked better. I really love the cosmetics (as they’re basically the same on both) but the LS seemed to be the better fit for me. Obviously these are the same racquets as the older version with a cosmetic update, but something felt even better about this one! It’s very comfortable and maneuverable on the court, and easy to swing as well. If you’re looking for a powerful racquet with a sleek aesthetic this is a great frame to try.

4.0 player that played in college, big Roger Federer fan, I was pumped to check out the new LS version of the Pro Staff. Extraordinary engraved graphics. I drove down to Midwest Sports' showroom yesterday to pick up the racquet. Stop and hit against a wall with the racquet before I got home. The racquet itself is very maneuverable and fast. Although it was brief, the crisp, clean responsiveness stuck out. Look forward to getting out on the court and testing this racquet out further!
