The Yonex Ezone 100 and Wilson Clash 100 are rackets primarily aimed at beginner to intermediate recreational players as they both are relatively light rackets that offer tennis players a good mix of power, control, and spin.
This article will hopefully help you decide which of these rackets might suit your game better and explain how the rackets differ from each other in terms of playability and racket specs.
The Yonex Ezone 100 is endorsed by Top ATP/WTA stars Casper Ruud, Belinda Bencic, Sorana Cirstea, and Marketa Vondrousova.
As the Wilson Clash 100 was designed to suit recreational tennis players rather than professional tennis players, no pros are currently endorsing the Wilson Clash 100.
Comparison of the Yonex Ezone 100 vs Wilson Clash 100
For the purposes of this comparison, we will be comparing the Yonex Ezone 100 2022 version to the Wilson Clash 100 V2.
Racket Specs – Yonex Ezone 100 2022 vs Wilson Clash 100 V2
Starting with the similarities between the two rackets, both have a 100in head size, a racket length of 27in, and a 16×19 string pattern. Both rackets also have very similar strung and swing weights with the Ezone 100 weighting a few grams more than the Clash 100.
In terms of differences, the Clash 100 is more head light than the Ezone 100 so should be easier to swing. The Clash 100 is a lot less stiff than the Ezone 100 so if you are worried about getting tennis elbow then the Clash 100 is probably the better racket to go with.
In terms of power generation, both rackets will give you a medium amount of power with the Clash 100 giving a little more help in this department. In terms of control, neither racket excels in this department but the Ezone 100 is the better racket of the two.

Which Racket should you buy?
If you are still not sure which of the above rackets you should buy, then check out our recommendations below that are based on your level of skill as a tennis player and your playing style.
Although not designed with beginners in mind, both of these rackets are relatively beginner friendly as they aren’t too heavy and they give some help with generating power on your shots. These rackets are also good for beginners to use because as they improve their skills they will grow into the racket.
If I was starting tennis again myself, I would probably opt for the Wilson Clash 100 as it is a very arm friendly tennis racket that is very forgiving on off center shots.
Intermediate Tennis Players
Again both of these rackets would suit intermediate tennis players. If you want a bit more control then I would opt for the Ezone 100 but if you want a more forgiving and comfortable racket then I would go with the Clash 100.
Advanced Tennis Players
More Advanced tennis players will most likely want to go with the 98 Versions of these two rackets i.e. the Yonex Ezone 98 and the Wilson Clash 98 as both of these rackets offer the control that more advanced tennis players are looking for.
Tennis Players with Tennis Elbow
Without question, the Clash 100 is the better tennis racket in terms of arm friendliness as it has a much lower stiffness rating than the Ezone 100.
If you are a tennis player who likes to play from the baseline, then I think you will be happy with either of these two rackets. Again if you are looking for more control go with the Ezone or more power and comfort go with the Clash 100.
Net Rushers/Serve and Volley Players
I wouldn’t really recommend either of these rackets if you are a net rusher or a serve and volley player as neither of these rackets offers the control needed to make these playing styles work.
