No such thing as just plain "better"... better depends on you, your condition or age, your goals, etc

For a beginner... I would not spend that much money on a racket...

Better also depends on your "nature" on-court or playing style, and a ton of other very personal variables...

If you say you're a beginner... gym going 30 yo ... I'd pick a heavier racket 315g and above - my rationale being you'd learn to use the weight and learn proper technique, instead of getting rewarded by these super-light modern sticks despite one's poor technique... ie. immho these modern frames (like the Clash that I play with) would delay your progress by giving you immediate gratification...

This recommendation is also a very personal one based on my own biases :)

So if choose one at clash100 and gravity mp. Which one you suggest
 
For a beginner, there’s no difference. A beginner will suck with either. If you’re in shape at 140 lbs like me, Clash 100. If you’re more muscular, Gravity MP. Due to the difference in swingweight alone.

(edit: removed the generic “you”)

Dang. Tough crowd.

@Hoiming611hk Definitely choose the Clash. It will be much easier to play with, and easier for you to progress with. Gravity is a bit heavier to swing and less power, so everything will feel a bit more difficult for a beginner.

See @Hoiming611hk ? totally opposite points of view based on different personal biases ;-)
I'm not saying who's right or wrong - in this respect I don't think there's either, just different paths

Thanks your analysing. I use clash100 first. I hope I can change to the other racquet faster since I have upgraded myself to higher level.

I played test both due to TE injury and settled with gravity MP. Personally, Clash 100 feel clunky and doesn't feed connected to the ball. GMP feel little head heavy to swing but when i recover from injury, i might add 2-3g to the handle. It also doesn't offer a lot of power so you will need to swing through the ball.
For reference, i'm 30 , 5"4 120# 4.0 on good day.
 
Wow. This has the potential to be as much a religious argument as a practical one. I would lean a little toward starting a person with the lighter racquet. I've just gone through this with two very fit, strong middle aged guys, giving them a selection of racquets to use each time out, and they've both settled on older (and consequently much less expensive than the Clash vs Gravity argument), lighter models with slightly oversized heads. In both cases I saw improvement with the lighter racquets. As they progress and feel more confident in finding the middle of the racquet (I think part of the oversize is psychological) and learn to hit consistently, I'm sure they'll settle in on something a little heavier and average sized head. In the meantime, getting them out to play, practice and develop good technique is probably far more important than some minor racquet differences, and if the lighter racquets do that for them, they are part of the solution.
