Gearbox CX11Q Quad Control Pickleball Paddle

The Gearbox CX11Q Quad Control Pickleball Paddle has a broad 8" width which offers a large sweet spot and easier defense against aggressive players. It uses Gearbox's patented Solid Span Technology (SST) comprised of T-700 graphite chambers in the core. This not only absorbs energy from hits so that it's easier to resist torqueing on impact, but prevents eliminates so the paddle continues to play consistently over time.

The Gearbox CX11Q Control Paddle has a gentle feel and quiet sound. It's a great choice for players focused on dinking and desiring more accurate placement. The grip size can be ordered in a 3-5/8" or 3-15/16" circumference depending on how much padding is desired. The 4-3/4" long handle and overall 15-7/8" length result in fantastic proportions for those players used to a traditionally-shaped paddle, with a bit of extra reach. The CX11Q is offered in two weights: a 7.8 oz. in the purple color, or 8.5 oz. in yellow.

The CX11Q Quad Control Pickleball Paddle by Gearbox offers the control you're looking for, in a slim profile paddle that is easy to maneuver during fast exchanges.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

Gearbox paddles are excluded from our 30 day Paddle Test Drive.

    I've bought several brands of paddles, and by far this is the best. I can control my spin especially on my serves.

    Such great control, and a little more power than then GX5 Control I've been playing with.

  • Great Touch and Maneuverability

    This is a really really fun paddle. Great touch with the control series paddle! The thin profile also gives great maneuverability and quickness at the net. Everyone should at least try this paddle!! My only drawback was that off center shots were pretty unforgiving.

    Received this paddle as a Christmas present and I can honestly say I could not be happier. As an ex table tennis player this paddle gives me all the control and feel that I am looking for. Great job Gearbox.
