    2017 was Racquetworld's most exciting year with Wilson Racquetball we have ever had. We had our first exclusive high end racquet which was the Pro Staff and we sold out of it in less than 6 months and we thought the amount we ordered would last well over 1 year. We’re even more excited for the 2018-2019 season as we now have 3 exclusive racquets which are called the Pro Staff w/Countervail (170 grams), Pro Staff Lite w/Countervail (165 grams), and the Blade Lite w/Countervail (155 grams). Countervail technology has absolutely crushed it in Tennis and Squash and Pro Staff and Blade are the 2 series that have made Wilson what it is today so we are confident that Wilson will be a top contender this year for our best selling frames. Curious about Countervail Technology, Pro Staff and Blade? Let us lay it all out below.

    Countervail Explained

    Integrating Countervail (please see the video below about Countervail in Tennis Racquets) technology into these new racquetball frames maximize player energy, reduce muscle fatigue, and shortens player recovery time. These racquets will leave you feeling like you could play racquetball all night, wake up in the morning and want to do it all over again with an arm as fresh as the day before.

    Pro Staff vs. Blade w/Countervail:

    Pro Staff Series:

    If you are the player looking for the classic comfortable feel that produces precision placement while still maintaining ultimate power the Pro Staff will be your pick.

    Blade Series:

    If you are the player looking for the traditional frame shape racquet with an emphasis on more of a hybrid feel of power and control the Blade Lite will be your pick.

    These are available in the smaller SS or larger XS grip sizes.

    If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.

    A racquet cover IS NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option to add a cover for $8-$12 if you would like.

    RacquetWorld General Notes

    RacquetWorld recommends changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), which will be $11.00 installed, for the added traction to prevent slippage.  The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down. For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.

    The Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable than the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $24.95.  It's normally $40 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $15 if you choose the upgrade right away. Another string we highly recommend is the Python Atlas Deluxe restring upgrade ($27.95), and it’s a little softer than the original Atlas for those players that prefer a softer string with incredible playability/durability.

    If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Python Vibration Dampner (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).

    The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.If you want to change colors, a small fee of $3.95 will be added for switching.

    A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet. Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!

    We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet. 

    Racquet Covers - Choose one for $8-$12 (RacquetWorld Cover is Only $8.00)

    A full racquet cover is NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option of adding a full cover for $8-12 if you would like. If you want the best cover on the market buy the Racquetworld Cover. It is oversized, has a full outside pocket, a handle strap and a large shoulder strap as well as a ventilated pocket to let your grip breathe and best of all its $2-$4 less than the others because we want to help you by supporting our company! The charge will only be $8.00 when added to the cart for this choice instead of $10.00-$12.00 like the other covers.

    Nice Racquet Better Service
    Verified Buyer
    I needed a new racquet and based upon reviews ordered this with upgraded strings, grip etc. The racquet is good, I'll most likely get 2 for a matched set. The service was nothing short of amazing. I ordered it before noon and had it the next day! Amazing!

    When I read the reviews for this Wilson racquet I was skeptical but intrigued enough to try. Players make kill shots, not racquets, right...? I demoed the Pro Staff and the results were solid enough for me to make the buy. After one round with my players group I am sold. I won games I had not before and scared the bejeezus out of payers who never saw me coming. So yes, the racquet did not make the shots but somehow this racquet allowed me to make shots I had not before. One last thing, I am 63 years old and a little post play shoulder pain is part of the fun. I may have to let that go because I feel great today.

    Very Impressive
    Verified Buyer
    The consensus at the gym where I play racquetball is that Gear Box is the racquet of choice. I played with a few Gear Box racquets that others let me borrow. I was not impressed. To me, they play very similar to a beginners racquet. I saw the rankings on this site for Gear Box and it doesn't rank very high. Noticed this Wilson Pro Staff was ranked pretty high across the boards so took a chance and purchased it. I was/am very impressed with the control, accuracy and of course power that comes with this racquet. My game has seriously improved and is noticeable to not only me. I will only play with Wilson's higher end racquets for now on. Thanks Racquetball World for the ranking you provide.

    So smooth
    Verified Buyer
    I got this racket during the memorial day sale. This is my first high end racquet ever. I bought it with all upgrades, string, grip, grommet, and a cover. I have to say that I did not think it was pretty on the internet, but when it arrived, man, what a beautiful racquet. It got me some time to get used to it, but now it is my to go racket for singles. It hits so smooth, and it does require less effort to get a decent shot. I will definitely consider it for future purchases if this one for some reason breaks.

    Loving it
    This wasn't the racquet I was originally trying to buy but I'm sure glad its the one I got. After breaking my KW Kennex I decided to give the Drone a shot. Because of its popularity and my timing, it was sold out so the great people of Racquetworld called me and discussed this one as an option. Its only been a couple of days but I have to say, I think its the best racquet I've ever owned. I'm actually back on the site now contemplating buying a backup. One word. WOW

    I have been playing racquetball for almost 40 years and this racquet is the best racquet I have ever played with. Plays really true and provides plenty of power. Also, it is much less stressful on my arm and shoulder after playing for a few hours. Great racquet!!

    Best Racquet Ever

    I've played almost exclusively with Ektelon for the past 30 years. The reviews looked good on this racquet and I wanted to treat myself for my birthday, so I decided to change it up for once. I'm VERY happy with this choice. It hits very hard, but the most amazing thing was how many roll outs I hit with this racquet. It just seemed to know exactly where I wanted to go. I've only had a few goes with it so far, but I have been very impressed with it. I don't think you can go wrong with this racquett.

    Wilson Pro Staff Counterail 170
    Verified Buyer
    Just started playing with this racquet. Good feel, power and control for my skills as a average player. I tested a lot of racquets over the past 10 year and this is the best racquet I found. A power player (levelA) at the club disliked the trampoline effect. I like it as I am getting more kill shots, passing shots and my opponents are getting frustrated. Curious to see how the racquet will hold up after months of play. I switched from the head extreme touch which broke after 8 months and not covered by a warranty. Others have tried my Wilson racquet and are considering getting one as they played much better with it than with their current racquet. While the price is high, the improvement in my game is worth it for me.

    Most accurate racquet I have ever played with
    Verified Buyer
    I have been playing for 30+ years and almost always played with decent, but sub $100 racquets. This Christmas my son and I demoed 4 racquets and it was hard to spend this much on a racquet, but I couldn’t justify not after consistently hitting kill shot after kill shot with. It also has a decent amount of power and no strain on my elbow. I’m a control player vs power player.

    Most consistent racquet I have ever used.
    Just spent a week demoing this racquet and I'm ordering one today. I would never have believed a racquet could make that much of a difference, but shot after shot just went right where I wanted it to. I hate to spend this much on a racquet, but my game was consistently better compared to a wide range of new and older, less and similarly priced racquets.

    Exclusive RacquetWorld Racquet Ratings

    Ratings and comparisons for all racquets can be found in RacquetWolrd Exclusive Racquet Ratings

    Racquetworld's Durability Rating:  95.00 

    Racquetworld's Power Rating: Age 24-  98.72  Age 35  99.54  Age 45+  98.85 

    Racquetworld's Control Rating #1 (Front Court):  99.03 

    Control 1 (Front Court) represents how the racquet handles upfront in the court. We are basically looking at how certain components stacked together to produce good (or bad) racquet maneuverability. To figure this out we look at the weight, balance point, and shape of the frame. We throw all this info into Pat's brain along with a couple hours of hit testing and out pops the rating. This value is useful especially for doubles players who find themselves covering the upfront court a lot. It is also good to know if you are a good server and find yourself quickly putting away returns off your serve without leaving front middle court.

    Racquetworld's Control Rating #2 (Back Court):  99.00 

    Control 2 (Back Court) represents the traditional control rating when taking a full shot from mid to back court. Our goal with control is to redirect the Force of the ball. We again focus on weight, balance point, shape, string pattern and tension, frame stiffness and on court experience.

    Racquetworld's Overall Rating: Age 24-   99.35   Age 35  98.88   Age 45+  98.63

    Countervail - New for 2018 - 2019


    Countervail is the all-new material technology integrated into Wilson frames that maximizes a player's energy, reduces muscle fatigue and shortens recovery time. By smartly directing the ball,s energy within the frame instead of the body, Countervail conserves a player,s energy on every swing – keeping them in control from the first set to the last.


    To counter the extreme conditions of space travel, NASA uses Countervail to maximize energy during flight – just like Countervail does during every swing.


    Special carbon fiber, integrated into the frame, transfers less of the ball's energy into the body, so players expend less energy during every swing while maintaining incredible feel.

    Created by Material Sciences Corp and rigorously developed, vetted and tested by W Lab scientists and Wilson pro tour players.

    - POWER STRINGS - Power Strings design maintains consistent string placement for lethal power on all shots.
