The Clash 100L v2, the follow-up to the popular and redefining v1, brings more consistency, sustainability and an updated design suitable for a wide range of players from beginners to intermediates or those looking for a lighter-weight, very flexible and comfortable frame that is capable of delivering modern power and performance.
The Clash 100L is for developing players who are working on improving their swing and racquet speed. The weight and balance make this a great racquet for juniors stepping into their first adult racquet as well as new players to the game who want a racquet they can grow into and improve with. Slightly lighter than the Clash 100, this model will offer easier access to power and is also easier to manoeuver on court. This model comes with a 100 square inch headsize that will provide an ample-sized sweet-spot without feeling clunky, consequently giving a blend of power and control. The relatively open 16x19 string pattern will provide plenty of bite into the ball and string snapback and should offer lots of spin potential. The very head light balance makes it extremely maneuverable and the low stiffness index means that the frame is very flexible which means the racquet is very arm friendly. This racquet stands apart from many other racquets in its category due to the high flexibility on offer which should really appeal to players seeking feel and comfort.
The second edition of Clash brings some technological improvements including a revised construction at the tip of the hoop for additional consistency with its enhanced sweet spot. This improves on the already fantastic feel and comfort characteristics which add up over the course of a match. Wilson has integrated a sustainable, plant-based material called Agiplast that can be found in the bumper, grommets and end cap. The overall design has also been updated with an anodized elastic finish look with a tactile embossed logo for a more dynamic and rich impression.
With its unique blend of extreme flexibility and stability coupled with great feel and maneuverability, the Clash 100L is definitely worth a try for those players looking for a comfortable and easier-swinging modern frame. Previous players will likely be quite satisfied with this improvement as it does not fundamentally change what makes the Clash experience so unique and popular.
