Wilson introduces a new addition to the Clash family with the release of the Wilson Clash 98. With a more surgical head size and a slightly higher swingweight, the Clash 98 is the most control-oriented and stable frame in the series to date. Like the other racquets in the Clash family, this 98 model features a low stiffness rating for a comfortable feel with good pocketing. From the baseline, our playtesters enjoyed generous access to spin and easy depth, and they could get the racquet head flying through the air for effortless power. The soft, flexible feel led to great touch on volleys, and the added mass helped our team get the ball moving through the court on serves. All in all, players looking for that signature Clash feel in a more control-oriented package should give this 98 model a whirl!
Featuring the smallest headsize of the revolutionary Clash franchise, the Clash 98 lies at the peak of confidence and control. The 98 sq-in head delivers laser-like precision for players who consistently hit the sweet spot, while the very head-light balance reduces swing weight and adds control through the swing. Driven by a proprietary carbon mapping construction, FreeFlex gives the frame additional bending angles, creating an incredibly flexible racquet that works effortlessly with the modern swing for enhanced ball pocketing and dwell time. Despite the impressive flexibility, stability and power are not compromised thanks to unique StableSmart frame geometry. Delivering the performance that confidence promises, the Clash 98 creates a playing experience unlike any before.
