Wilson Clash customization

#1
Hi.
I have few question about customizing Clash 100 non tour vearsion.
Would like to make it 5-10 grams heavier and raising the SW for about 10 points.
Was thinking about putting 2-3 grams under the bumper (12 o'clock) and 4-6 grams under the grip.
Am I thinking right? Will I get the desired? Thank you.

I'll advise to put lead at 3&9 then its more stable, especially with harder shots and volleys!

Then I have to put more weight?
1 gram at 3&9 raises SW for about 2 points and same weight at 12 raises about 3 points. Right?

Yes thats right. Try first 6 gram at 3&9 1 gram at 12 and 3 gram in the handle, or just skip the counterweight. Its very headlight. Less headlight will get you more pop and power. You can skip at 12 also first. Try it at 3&9 first.

So finally I went with 2 grams at 10&2 and 4 grams under the grip.
It feels great. More plow thru and more stability. Not much weight added but makes great upgrade.
Now it's around 320 SW and 325 grams static weight (with strings,overgrip and dampener).

How's the control now that you've increased the power with this setup? I mean, the racquet had decent control but not amazing. I wonder how increasing static and sw would do to the control.

I don't have any problems with control. With the same swing ball flies maybe half a meter longer. I add a bit more spin if I have to and everything's good. Nothing you can't adjust to.
The racquet became more stable this way and that adds a bit of control.

How much lead did you put at 3&9 (also 3g in total)? And what did it change vs. lead at 12?
I think it already has enough weight at 12, upper hoop quite stable.
3 each at 3 and 9 I feel much better to hit through rather than whip the ball. It actually feel a bit like the tour version which i prefer.

Btw, I bought 2 and grip size seems different (0.5mm). I had to match them before wrapping replacement grip.
There's code printed on hairpin say the tour and non tour version are different layups. They play quite different, but same impact feel

I've been trying to add lead the 3/9/12 to increase the swingweight and stability on the Clash. Has anyone compared a leaded Clash to the Clash Tour? Seems like the TW playtesters much preferred the Clash over the Clash Tour.
