Pros and Cons
The Burn 100 is a forgiving frame with a generous sweet spot and lots of power, which is great for beginner to intermediate players but advanced players will find it is too light and lacks control.
The Clash 100 is a powerful frame that has a manageable weight and is very comfortable to play with but advanced tennis players will find the racket does not offer enough control.
Head to Head
The Burn 100 is the better option in terms of power, control, and spin, however, the Clash 100 is better in terms of comfort.
The biggest difference between the two rackets is definitely their stiffness ratings, with the Clash 100 being very flexible at 54 RA, while the Burn 100 is a very stiff frame at 72 RA.
|H2H||Burn 100||Clash 100|
Both rackets are good options for beginner to intermediate players, however, more advanced players will prefer a racket with more control e.g. Wilson Pro Staff 97.
