Broad sweet spot, long'ish handle, and thick 14mm core contribute to a stable and controlled paddle, while hand-laid graphite core results in durable construction.

Midweight/Small Grip

Gearbox CX14H Hyper Pickleball Paddle

Gearbox's new CX14 line is the first to feature their SST core technology in a thick-core profile. This means the CX14H Hyper Pickleball Paddle not only retains the generous proportions and sweet spot of previous models, but layers on an added measure of control thanks to the 14mm (0.55") thick core. "SST" stands for Solid Span Technology, which is Gearbox's patented approach to paddle core design which arranges graphite chambers in a precise manner to create excellent ball response, while virtually eliminated the issue of delamination and dead spots somewhat common to other paddles.

The Gearbox CX14H Hyper Shape Pickleball Paddle is offered in an 8.0 oz. weight which provides a balance of power and speed. Despite the design's thicker profile, it does not feel weighted down or difficult to maneuver thanks to its perfect weight distribution. The 5-5/8" handle length even provides enough space for double-handed strikes so you can change up your play and throw in some unexpected power shots. The grip circumference comes in either a 3-5/8" or 3-15/16" size.

The CX14H Hyper Pickleball Paddle by Gearbox is an adaptable choice which will impress you with its durability and playability, in a seriously attractive package.

    Not your beginner paddle Due to the smaller sweet spot But definitely a paddle for spin and control Took me 3 or 4 games to get used to it I'm very happy with my paddle

    I like the long handle, even tho I am a one handed back hander. The weight is perfect for my game. I play control and spin, and when I bang it works just fine. My game is up a notch with this paddle.

    The paddle has great touch, decent power, and speed at kitchen. It has very good control for dinks, drives, slices, and spins. There is also good power when there is an opportunity for a slam. This paddle feels like it has a mind of its own, if the ball does not hit the sweet spot, the paddle will definitely let you know lol. It’s not very forgiving but if you hit the sweet spot and take good care of the paddle, it will definitely take care of you. It’s very fun to play with, I recommend giving it a try. I love the feel, shape, weight, and how it looks. Warning, you may feel bit of a vibration when you hit hard or battle against bangers but thankfully the surface, feel, and texture can give you everything needed to reset/control the ball. Being on point with hitting the sweet spot is a must. The fact that this paddle makes you do that, will make you a better player in general. It’s a good product, zero regrets. All around good quality and a solid paddle (no pun intended).
