I was teaching a class on Monday night and on the court next to me there were four ladies playing during their Reserved Season Contract Time. I couldn’t help but notice that all four of them were playing with the same racquet, which I also play with. The Wilson Clash has been selling like crazy and for good reason. The racquet provides phenomenal control yet allows you to give off a powerful shot with the flex from the racquet head. If that’s not enough for you to go out and buy it immediately, did I forget to mention that you don’t feel a thing in your arm during the impact of the ball. I love this racquet and apparently so does everyone else! See Tim Hahn at the Pro Shop to try it for yourself. You are in for a treat!
Wilson believes its new Clash has the potential to redefine the tennis racquet. The uniqueness of the frame lies in its blending of extreme flexibility with high-end stability. The success of the marriage stems from two new technologies. FreeFlex is a proprietary carbon mapping construction that allows the frame to bend in new dimensions—both horizontally and vertically—when compared to a traditional frame. This is designed to increase ball pocketing and dwell time for enhanced feel and control. But to preserve integrity through the swing on such a flexible racquet, StableSmart frame geometry allows the Clash to bend where its designed to, while still providing enough backbone to handle incoming pace and return it with interest. There are two frames in the initial launch: Clash 100 and Clash 100 Tour. Both have a 100 square-inch head, 16×19 string pattern and a constant 24.5 mm beam. The difference lies in the weight, an unstrung 100 checks in at 10.4oz while the 100 Tour is 10.9 oz. This racquet is best used by players who may have arm, elbow, or shoulder issues due to the flexible frame to provide comfort when hitting the ball.
