Wilson clash 100 Full Review
the Wilson clash was the most popular racquet in terms of aesthetic appearance.
Everyone agreed that the Wilson clash was the aesthetically better-looking racquet.
Wilson introduces the Wilson Clash tennis racket as a revolutionary tennis racket.
With the Clash, Wilson’s goal is to offer a racket that is both very flexible and at the same time powerful and stable, which doesn’t seem to go together.
Wilson also presents the Clash as a racquet that can adapt to all styles of play, just like that!
To achieve this ambitious goal, Wilson has filed 5 patents.
The 2 core technologies of the Wilson Clash are:
Stable Smart: an exclusive carbon mapping to provide excellent ball control for all types of play whether flat or lifted.
FreeFlex: a frame geometry specific to the Clash, developed through computer simulation, to provide stability and power along with great flexibility.
The power of the Wilson Clash 100 is intermediate, it’s not weak and it’s not an ultra-powerful racquet either. However, the Clash 100 is more powerful than the Wilson Blade and Wilson Pro Staff.
It’s a little bit like the Wilson Ultra 100 or the Head Speed MP in terms of power, but the feel of the game is different.
I didn’t get the feeling that the Wilson Clash adapts to the power of the player as I heard.
In any case, it’s surprising to have a racquet with such low displayed stiffness that still manages to generate so much power.
With its mid-powered feel, I think the Wilson Clash will be a good fit for a wide range of players looking for versatility.
This racquet provides plenty of control and comfort on groundstrokes, the good balance between power and control makes it easy to penetrate the court with deep shots.
The large sweet-spot makes this racquet an excellent choice for players with arm problems such as tennis elbow, however, it takes a little bit of time to get used to the muted sound.
The stiffness of the Wilson Clash 100 is 55 Ra. this is the most flexible racquet on the market today!
If I hadn’t heard this information, I wouldn’t have thought the racquet had such flexibility when I tested it in the field.
With soft racquets, you can feel the frame bending when hitting and this was not the case for the Wilson Clash 100, except on a few really powerful hits.
it is interesting to have the comfort given by the flexibility of the frame, without reducing the power.
Feel and Comfort
Whether it’s the flexibility of the frame or the technologies used in this racquet, in the end, the Wilson Clash 100 is very comfortable.
The control wasn’t there as much as a 98 square inch racquet where you can pick your spots really easily. But if you’re comparing this to 100 square inch head size, I thought the control was pretty good. As I said, it’s not quite as sharp as might be for 95 square inch head size, but no huge complaints about the control.
Maneuverability And Stability
With an unstrung balance of 31 cm, which is proper for a racquet of this weight, I expected to get a different feel.
In the end, I got sensations close to what I usually get with racquets balanced at 32 cm, like the Head Radical MP or the Tecnifibre TFight 295 XTC which is at 32.5 cm.
I had a very light feeling of weight in the head, which left very good maneuverability during the game.
It’s preferable to have a very lightweight feel at the head with a slightly lighter racquet for stability and power.
As for the stability of the Clash 100 (295g), it’s satisfactory for a racquet of this weight, even if it will be a bit low when hitting really hard or countering very powerful balls.
In this case, the Wilson Clash 100 Tour (310g) will be preferable.
With its 645 cm² head size and 16×19 string pattern, the Wilson Clash 100 delivers a lot of spins.
It’s not a topspin machine but I had no problem generating topspin on all types of balls.
Whether it’s making short crossover lifts or high and long lifts, no matter how high the ball is, I felt comfortable doing it.
Wilson clash 100 vs HEAD GRAVITY TOUR
The Head Gravity tour gave me a lot of confidence as well. Just like the clash, it is different. However, it gave me a lot of confidence in the control of the ball placement of the ball, not so much with the power.
I did find that I was hitting the ball a little bit shorter with the Head Gravity tour. I was still getting a great spin, but I really had to kind of focus on hitting the ball deep, whereas, with The Wilson Clash, it just came naturally with the power of the racquet.
Still, I do think that the Head Gravity tour has enough power with the small adjustments, you will be able to hit the ball where you want to without any problems.
with control, the Head Gravity tour gave me a ton of confidence to go for my shots and really place them. I found myself moving my opponent around the court a lot better, keeping them off balance.
It was a little bit harder to hit those deep winners or penetrating shots with the placement and the confidence I had in placing the ball where I wanted to be able to build points a lot better with this racquet than I could with the Wilson clash.
With control, the Head is better than the Wilson Clash 100, However, the clash offers more power and it’s more comfortable to use. aesthetically, the Wilson Clash 100 is my favorite racquet out of the two, I think this racquet looks really cool.
