Clash 100 features a unique frame technology to create ultimate control. 3D Bending uses proprietary carbon mapping to generate new dimensions of frame bending, giving players free-swinging accuracy with every stroke. Read more..
On the surface, the Clash 100 looks like any other modern players’ racquet, and at first glance the specifications also seem ubiquitous. As the name suggests, the Clash 100 boasts a 100-square-inch head-size. Being the most popular head size offered in this category of racquet and one that will provide an ample-sized sweet-spot without feeling clunky. The relatively open 16x19 string pattern will provide plenty of bite into the ball and string snapback and should offer lots of spin potential. A balance point of 10-points head-light, coupled with a 10.4-ounce static weight (unstrung), means the Clash 100 swings fast and is slightly more maneuverable than most of its competitors. The 24.5-millimetre constant beam width, while wider than most traditional players frames, is also standard fare these days.
Where the Clash 100 really separates itself from its competitors, as well as any racquet in Wilson's own past or present offering, is its extreme level of flexibility. Most racquets in the modern players racquet category will have a flex rating (RA rating) of 60-70 and while Wilson does not list a flex rating on this racquet - they instead opt to use their own internal flex rating called Stiffness Index - measurements from the prototypes we tried were registering RA numbers in the high 40s and low 50s. According to Wilson, the Clash 100 is 215 times more flexible than the Babolat Pure Drive and the most flexible racquet currently being offered by any racquet manufacturer. How does Wilson achieve such extreme levels of flexibility? Wilson says that it is because of a new technology they are using called FreeFlex. FreeFlex is a carbon-mapping construction that allows the racquet to flex with any swing style both horizontally and vertically. This not only makes the racquet extremely comfortable and easy on the arm on each (and every) shot, it also adds to the level of control on offer thanks to the enhanced ball pocketing and dwell time that will instill confidence in your ability to place the ball where you want it. While it is one thing to have a racquet with an abundance of flex its another thing to make that racquet stable and powerful as well. That's just what Wilson has done with the Clash 100. By incorporating StableSmart, which is a unique frame geometry designed using digital simulation, the racquet flexes only where it is designed to and according to Wilson results in best-in-class stability and power to go along with its high flexibility.
With its unique blend of extreme flexibility and stability coupled with great feel and maneuverability, the Clash 100 is definitely worth a try for those players looking for a comfortable fast-swinging modern players’ frame. Wilson claims that they took twice the typical development period to design the Clash racquets and produced 45 prototypes, proving that sometimes you can't rush a revolution!
A racket for the modern player has arrived. Powered by proprietary carbon construction and a unique frame geometry, Clash features a remarkably innovative frame that bends in all-new dimensions while maintaining best-in-class stability. The result is a racket that exudes unmatched confidence and free-swinging accuracy - a racket that delivers a playing experience unlike any before.
