Introducing the Clash 98, a modern player's racquet with outstanding feel and surgical targeting on full cuts. With its ultra low flex point, the Clash 98 is one of the most arm-friendly racquets in its class. At 11.5 ounces strung, the Clash is lighter than a traditional player's racquet but it feels impressively solid at impact. The exceptional feel comes in part from FreeFlex and StableSmart technology, both of which help the racket bend optimally impact. From the baseline, the Clash 98 feels crisp, precise and solid. Full swings find their mark without much fuss, and there is enough mass to get the ball moving powerfully through the court. There's also more than enough spin-potential to bring the ball down sharply. The Clash 98 also performs well on slower strokes where you'll find enough feel and precision to drop the ball into tight spaces. On service returns the Clash 98 will give you just enough mass for effective blocks and counter-punches. At net, the Clash 98 rewards clean mechanics with penetrating volleys, and there's plenty of touch for hitting droppers and sharp angles. Aggressive servers who can get this stick moving fast will find the needed mass, spin and precision to ratchet up the power. Ultimately, the Clash 98 is simply a great option for intermediate and advanced players who want a solid and spin-friendly weapon with great feel.
