With the Clash 100UL, Wilson brings its revolutionary technology to beginners, early intermediates or any player who wants an ultra maneuverable racquet that combines exceptional feel with surgical targeting on full swings. What separates the Clash 100UL from its competitors is its low stiffness rating, making this an obvious choice for people who want an arm-friendly racquet. According to Wilson, this racquet's feel is achieved using FreeFlex and StableSmart technology, both of which help the racquet bend optimally at impact without sacrificing the crisp and solid feel that has come to define the modern player's racquet. On groundstrokes the Clash 100UL not only moves with lightning speed, it feels crisp and comfortable at impact, with impressive stability for a light racquet. Shot placement comes easy, and the light weight makes it possible for improving players to execute shots on the run or swing faster when more pace is needed. There is also plenty of spin to be had thanks to its rapid acceleration and open 16x19 string pattern. The light and speedy feel continues at net where 100UL comes around very fast to deliver great feel at impact. Although it doesn't redirect pace as well as the heavier models, the maneuverability makes it very effective on reaction volleys. On serve, this racquet's precision will give you more confidence when swinging for power or selecting ambitious targets. Ultimately, with its impressive maneuverability and great feel, this is a must demo for the improving player who wants ease of use. The arm-friendly feel is a very nice bonus.
