Need your help! Which racquet should I take?

Hi!
An intermediate player, looking for a good access to top spin and power.
RA stiffness not over 62. (tennis elbow)
Strung weight should not exceed 315-320g.
Was looking at either:
Head Gravity 360+ MP
Wilson Clash 100.
I would love to hear your honest opinions!
Thanks.

Quick edit:
Am I doing the right thing asking for a low stiffness rating?

Definitely choose the clash. More power and spin, softer, and very headlight. But if you play with poly string around 48 pounds, don’t string up in the mid 50’s, better feel and more pocketing + spin.

Yes the Clash might play more stable than it's weight as well. It's also easy to customize a bit if you ever want more ( I did it on a 100 to have Tour specs and it worked nicely)

Why the clash over the gravity?
And if you can elaborate on what makes it special, because I didn't see any pro use it, which makes me question the racquet.

Should I stick to low RA because of the elbow?

What makes it special is even with the low RA, it is still powerful. There is one pro using it as far as I know, who is Nicole Gibbs. What makes it special is even though the RA is very low, therefore extremely flexible, it actually has more power and spin than you think. The gravity mp will have a 16/20, so a little more control, and it also weighs less. Correct me if I’m wrong but it’s also 3 points headlight, so very slow to swing. With the clash, it’s like a tweener, but because of the flex it has a very unique feel. I would choose the clash, but if you are still deciding I would demo both with a poly strung around 46-48. If the poly is too stiff( I would recommend a soft poly, just search up “soft polyester string”) then go with a multifilament like head velocity at 53-55 pounds. Let me know how it goes.

I Could ask the same question if any pros are using the Gravity MP? I tried both and I liked both but the Gravity MP was customized with leather grip and weight at 10-12 for SW of 330 and weight over 330. Stock it is head heavy, so it is a personal preference.

yeah well not the MP, but the pro version. Alexander Zverev

Have not played the PRO but I think the MP is very different than the Tour and pro. Different beam thickness and string pattern (18-20)
