In this article, I will look at the specs of both rackets to see how they compare to each other.
Racket Specs Comparison
NB: For the comparison below I have used the 3rd generation of the Pure Strike and the V2 of the Clash 100 Pro.
Main Differences: The Clash 100 Pro has a bigger head size (100in vs 98in), a more head light balance (12pts HL vs 7pts HL), a lower stiffness rating (59 vs 66), a thicker beam width (24.5mm vs 23mm), and an extra cross string (16×20 vs 16×19).
Similarities: Both rackets have a 27in racket length, a very similar strung (326g (11.50oz) vs 327g (11.54oz)), and swing weights (325g (11.46oz) vs 327g (11.54oz)).

|300g (10.58oz)||Unstrung Weight:||310g (10.93oz)|

Head to Head
The Clash 100 is slightly better in terms of power and arm friendliness*, with the Pure Strike (or “PS”) winning in terms of control and spin.
Both rackets are best suited to intermediate to advanced tennis players as they both offer good levels of spin and control.
