Clash 98 Customization Suggestion

Hi guys have bought Clash 98 and it is pretty nice to hit with. Easy power and spin. Only issue is the weight and Swing Weight of racquet need to bulk up.

Problem i faced is the racquet seems to be very optimal engineered like the balance and weight location etc seems to be perfect(unable to feel any paticular area of the racquet lacking weight)

Things that can be further improved:
1.more racket weight and SW
2. More Vibration dampening at handle
3. Slight stability and less ball launch angle

Hope to create this tread for clash 98 users to share around thier customize setup done :D

I’ve added a few grams of lead at 10 and 2 which ups the swing weight and stability a bit. With OG and dampener I’m right at 11 3/4 oz. I have a few shock shield grips on the shelf, but so far enjoying with just that small amt of lead.

Tour Bite at 52lbs gets me the launch angle I want, but the frame is so comfortable that I could easily go higher to get the launch down if I wanted.

I was thinking that a little weight at 3 & 9 might help with stability, which is needed more on my one-handed backhand side. Forehands and serves feel good but I do feel a little lack of stability on the backhand side. 10 & 2 might also be a good option, as suggested.

I haven't had a chance to try this, I played the demo in stock form only
the 3 and 9 spots were a good start, but i would add 3" strips to the 4x corners of the racquet, 1' to the handle,, and increase the butt-cap size a bit more (ala gasquet)
 
Thanks so much for the suggestion guys :")

I tried adding lead at 3 and 9 only around the greyish part(cus its matchy matchy colour with the lead tape haha). stability increased but i find the racket still lead abit of swing weight. I tried counter balance by adding 5 grams at the handle but it didn't work that well as it make the balance weight

Tried addinh around 4g at 3 and 9 again find it making the racket twistweight to be too high .thinking maybe shld placed at 12 and 6 instead, shall continue to try
