Wilson Clash V1 vs V2
The most obvious difference between the Wilson Clash V2 and the V1 version is the new paint job the new Clash V2 rackets have got.
They are now a nice cherry red color which makes the rackets look more slick and stylish and are in line with the look of the Blade 98 V8s.
The new clash rackets also incorporate the FORTYFIVE technology from the Blade 98 V8 racket which promises more flexibility and frame stability so that you have a better feel on your shots.
100% Legal. 0% Fair. #Clashv2— Wilson Tennis (@WilsonTennis) February 23, 2022
*FORTYFIVEº frame = unmatched combo of power and control
*16% larger sweetspot increases precision & feel

Wilson has also changed the string pattern on the Clash 98 V2 and Clash 100 Pro V2 from a 16×19 string pattern to a 16×20 string pattern.
This should help those who liked the first version of the Clash 98 or Clash 100 Pro but wanted more control from the racket.
When can I get the new Wilson Clash V2 Rackets?
The Clash V2 rackets went on general sale in early March but you were able to get early access to the rackets via wilson.com from the 18th of February.
The Wilson Clash V2 Rackets are now on sale at most online tennis shops like Tennis Warehouse, Tennis-Point, and Amazon.
What are the specs of the new Wilson Clash V2 Rackets?
When comparing the Wilson Clash V1 vs V2, there aren’t huge differences in terms of specs with the main difference being the string pattern changes for the Clash 98 and Clash 100 Pro.
Also, version 2 of the Clash 98 and Clash 100 Pro rackets are now 8pts head light which is slightly less head light than version 1 (9pts head light).
There are also some small differences in terms of the strung weight of all the Clash V2 rackets but the difference is not huge (See a summary of the specs below).
