Tester picanto (2), 2019-05-12  registered Residence: Germany male seniors recreational player, medium strokes with heavy spin, allround game
Test Conditions Tension Racquet
53/51 lbs Wilson Clash 100 (MP, 16/19)
Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Played on clay court with Dunlop AO balls.
On the Wilson Clash 295g at 23/22 kg the string had too much power for me. 24/23 kg worked a bit better in terms of control, touch and spin. The ball frequently dropped down into the court unexpectedly. By tuning my frame with 1.5 g each at 2 and 10 o'clock and 4 g lead on the grip cap I further increased the positive characteristics.
The 310g Clash would be too heavy for me. Multifilaments and also the WeissCannon Ultra Cable don't work that well on the Clash. They tend to move. The Focus-Hex 1.23 is the best string for me on this frame at the moment.

Compared to the Focus-Hex 1.18, the 1.23 provides better comfort and more direct feel, thus better control.

Used it in a hybrid with MSV Soft Touch crosses. Thanks to MSV for the recommendation and the sample. Due to my sensitive arm I cannot play the Focus-Hex in a full bed. But it works very well in combination wih the multifilament crosses. It provides good touch, relatively good power, and lasts me around 8 hours indoors. The characteristics are maintained very well and there is no string movement. That is frequently observed also with other more expensive multifilament cross strings.
Great hybrid for the price.
