Head to Head

The Blade 100 is the better option in terms of control, with the Clash 100 being the better option in terms of power, spin, and arm friendliness.

If you are a flat hitter then you will likely prefer the Blade 100 as it has a lower ball trajectory and less spin.

Player Recommendations

In my opinion, these rackets will best suit an intermediate to advanced tennis player, with the Blade 100 being the better option for more advanced players as the Clash 100 is more focused on power and spin rather than control.

Beginners will find these rackets too heavy and unforgiving, so beginners will be better off going for the lighter 100L versions of these rackets.
