In this article, I look at the racket specs of the Babolat Pure Strike 16 x19 and the Wilson Clash 100 Pro to see how these two tennis rackets compare to each other.
For the comparison below I have used the 3rd generation of the Pure Strike and the V2 of the Clash 100 Pro.

|323g (11.39oz)||Strung Weight:||326g (11.50oz)|
|300g (10.58oz)||Unstrung Weight:||310g (10.93oz)|

The main differences between the two rackets are 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).
In terms of similarities, both rackets have a 27in racket length, and have very similar strung (326g (11.50oz) vs 327g (11.54oz)) and swing weights (325g (11.46oz) vs 327g (11.54oz)).
