The revolution continues. Wilson introduces new racquets within their revolutionary Clash racquet line. The Clash gets its name by combining usually different traits of (power + control) & (flexibility + stability) all within the same frame.

The Clash 98 is designed to take advantage of the more vertical swing of the modern game. The Clash 98 bends in a very unique way, which creates a deeper ball pocket -- enhancing the overall feel for the frame while still providing excellent stability.

Wilson has implemented all-new technology into the Clash, starting with the introduction of “Free Flex.” Powered by a proprietary carbon mapping, the Clash bends in all-new dimensions so players can swing freely with more confidence. Wilson also developed the Clash with a unique frame geometry known as “Stable Smart” – designed through digital simulation, providing best-in-class stability and power, making the Clash one of the most flexible frames in tennis.

Specifications of the Clash 98 are very similar to that of the Clash 100 Tour. With a slightly smaller 98 square inch head, an 11.5 ounce strung weight, and a 16x19 string pattern -- the Clash 98 fits a wide variety of players looking for a mixture of power, control, and spin.


For Optimal String Performance Wilson Recommends:

  • Comfort: Wilson Sensation Plus
  • Control: Luxilon Smart

If selecting tension "Below Range", please note at checkout within the comments field your desired tension value.

Super - a comfortable Pure Strike

This is a fantastic racquet in every respect. I played with Clash Tour, Blade v7, Pure Strike 98 and Tour gen. 3, and Prince TT 310, and this racquet is by far the easiest to play with, comfortable and powerful, while being controllable and precise. Note that after coming from a control racquet like Pure Strike or Blade, you might experience a bit of a change, but you need to give this frame a chance. Also note that this racquet is not really just a variant of Clash line. It is bit different. It feels more like very comfortable Pure Strike 98 than a Clash 100 with more control. I've been playing with this frame for three months, and I like it more every day. Well rounded in every area, and especially good for offensive spins (including kick serves and slices) and defensive groundstrokes (because of its head light property).

I bought this as an "upgrade" from my Burn, which I happened to love. I feel like I will need to experiment a bit with my string tension a bit before I can come up with a final verdict on this racquet, but my initial takeaways are: THE GOOD: I'm getting some extra effortless power off of this which has done some great things for my backhand. THE BAD: The strike feel of this racquet is unique in a way that I could best describe as soft. I feel a disconnect and lack of touch/control. THE TROUBLING:I've never had wrist issues in my life, but every time I've played with this racquet I've experienced wrist pain. I AM in my mid 40s and experiencing new aches and pains all the time, but the timing of this is suspicious. TAKEAWAY: I bought this without giving it a test run and I'd recommend not making the same mistake as myself. You may love it or hate, but it definitely lives up to the hype of being a unique feeling racquet

Head light so it feels much sturdier that my previous request. Less vibration, less elbow pain. Great raquet for flat power but you better be in position for your swing. It gives no assist to bad body position swings. Love it!!

FANTASTIC!!!
