I’m generally always happy when the mailman rings the door. Today I received my Wilson Custom tennis racquets and they look great.
Around 6 weeks back I designed a bunch of different Wilson Custom tennis racquets and asked my followers/subscribers to choose. In the end, this is what they chose, a Sweden (or Boca Juniors) inspired Clash 98 (my elbow says thank you very much) and a Porsche-inspired Pro Staff RF97 Autograph designed by my son Aiden (who loves cars).
I had no idea what to expect from the paint job, but I opened the box I was instantly relieved. They look to be of high quality (need to hit with them a bit first, but that’s the first impression) and I enjoy both of them. The glossy Clash 98 looks different and exciting, while the Pro Staff 97 is all class and sophistication. It’s Roger Federer’s racquet of choice, right?
I made a video about the ordering process of the Wilson Custom tennis racquets. It’s fairly straightforward but I found myself going back and forward and trying various different designs, so make sure you have ample time. The UI is user-friendly and straightforward, but unless you have a particular design in mind, it might take some back and forth. Below is a video detailing the process.

So why did I chose a Clash 98 and a Pro Staff 97 RFA? Well, I am a fan of the Pro Staff RF97A, but it’s not a racquet for every day grinding. It’s for those times you want to pretend to be Roger for a while. Fun, but challenging. The Clash 98 is a nice racquet, especially for my sometimes complaining elbow. It’s also the most controlled of the quite “wild” Clash line of racquets.
I have been complaining a lot about specs and quality control over the years. But this time around I was lucky to get both racquets pretty much ON spec, which is exactly what I wanted. Now it’s time to string them up and take them to the tennis court tomorrow.
