Description

The racquet revolution has come with the Clash series from Wilson. An innovative new way of creating racquets that combine seemingly impossible features of the game into one package. With the success of the 100 and Tour models, Wilson has launched three more frames in the Clash family.

Precision combined with the smooth feel that the Clash series offers. This racquet maintains everything that makes the Clash 100 popular. 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. These features usually make a racquet underpowered compared to competitors but with the Clash we know this is a different story, the advanced Carbon Mapping and StableSmart technology allow the racquet to only flex where necessary on ball impact, keeping it rigid and powerful during contact. The purpose behind all the technology is to increase dwell time on the stringbed, thus enabling the player to control and place the ball more effectively. The Clash 98 will require players to have a longer and faster swing than someone who would use the lighter and larger head sized Clash racquets but will reward you with better control than the other models.

Wilson has found a way to combine power and control, agility and feel, and maximum comfort into a series of racquets like no others. Feedback on the 100 and Tour has been overwhelmingly positive and we’re excited to help bring the Clash series to a wider player base as the revolution continues!

Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.

Product specs such as weight may vary slightly from racquet to racquet to what is advertised due to the manufacturing process.

Adult Racquets Sizing Information
Grip Size Length
L0 (4") 4" (4 inches)
L1 (4 1/8") 4 and 1/8" (4.125 inches)
L2 (4 1/4") 4 and 2/8" (4.25 inches)

L4 (4 1/2") 4 and 4/8" (4.5 inches)
L5 (4 5/8") 4 and 5/8" (4.625 inches)

To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.

Grip size palm measurements for tennis racquets

If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
