We need more feedback on how it compares to blade in terms of feel and other 100inch racquets you have played with.My new Clash tour 4 3/8 with tounagrip and 16 gauge string weighs in at 11.8 ounces. Perfect weigh for a 5.0 tweener like me. Switched from the blade 98's 18x20 pattern and so far no wrist our shoulder problems. With the blade, over the years have developed sore shoulders and wrist pains. Could play every other day singles, but very sore after each match. I too welcome the softer frame. Lets a person play tennis without creating injuries. After playing stiff for 10 or so years, nice to have a change. Still get equal power and control to the blade without the harshness.
If you are like me, that enjoys playing 4 times a week, give it a try. Your joints will appreciate it. And if I continue to play 4 times a week competitive singles without injuries, then it was worth the change!
Also a comparison with the base clash if you tried it...?
