Head Size

The HBP (98in) has a head size that is 2 inches smaller than the WC100P (100in), so the HBP will have a slightly smaller sweet spot due to its smaller head size.

Racket Length

The HBP and WC100P have a standard racket length of 27 inches.

Strung Weight

The strung weight of the HBP (329g/11.6oz) is 3 grams heavier than the strung weight of the WC100P (326g/11.5oz), but you will not notice much of a difference in terms of strung weight.

As both rackets have a strung weight of over 320g, they would be considered to be heavy tennis rackets, that are not suitable for beginners.

Unstrung Weight

Both rackets have an unstrung weight of 310g(10.93oz).

Swing weight

Both the HBP and WC100P have a swing weight of 325g which means your arm may get tired if you are playing with these rackets for an extended period of time.

Balance

The HBP has a 6pts Head Light (or “HL”) balance, while the WC100P has a 9pts HL balance, which helps these heavy tennis rackets be more maneuverable.

Stiffness Rating

The HBP (66) has a higher stiffness rating when compared with the WC100P (59), with the WC100P being the more arm friendly of the two rackets.

Power and Control

The HBP and WC100P are both low – medium powered tennis rackets, which require the player to have a full swing and good technique in order to get the most out of these rackets.

Player Level

These Clash and Boom rackets are best suited to Intermediate – Advanced tennis players as these rackets would be considered too heavy for most beginners to play with.

Beam Width

The HBP (23.5mm/24.5mm/23.5mm) has a slightly thinner beam width when compared with the WC100P (24.5mm/24.5mm/24.5mm), so you should get slightly more control from the Head Boom and slightly more power from the Wilson Clash.

String Pattern

The WC100P has a 16 x 20 string pattern, while the HBP has a 16 x 19 string pattern, with the extra string on the WC100P helping to add more control to the racket.

Grip Type

The HBP has a Head Hydrosorb Pro grip, while the WC100P has a Wilson Pro Performance grip.
