With the Clash 100 Tour, Wilson has created a uniquely flexible modern player's racket with easy spin, controllable power and great feel.
At 310 grams (unstrung), the Clash 100 Tour is weighted for intermediate and advanced players. Thanks to a 32,5cm balance and a swingweight in the low 320s, this racket delivers explosive acceleration from the baseline and speedy reactions in the front court.
The Clash 100 Tour is defined by its low stiffness rating (55-RA), which gives this lively racket an impressive boost in pocketing, dwell time and control.
Unlike traditional flexible rackets, which tend to vibrate excessively off-center, the Clash 100 Tour manages to feel surprisingly solid, crisp and lively. According to Wilson, this is achieved using FreeFlex and StableSmart technology, both of which help the racket bend optimally at impact. On groundstrokes the Clash 100 Tour feels fast and comfortable.
Full swings produce penetrating power, and the whippy acceleration translates seamlessly into spin. Like our favorite modern player's rackets, the Clash 100 Tour is well suited to scrambling on defense or cranking winners on the run.
At net, the Clash 100 Tour won't give you the stability of a traditionally weighted player's racket, but it is, according to our TW playtesters, plenty stable for its weight class, and the touch is spot on.
It's also very head light and quite fast, making it great for springing into action when opportunity knocks. On serve, you'll find more than enough power and spin to cause trouble.
You'll also have the needed speed and precision to stay aggressive on service returns. Ultimately, with its seductive combination of desirable features, the Clash 100 Tour is one of the more impressive rackets Wilson has produced in a while.
