Gearbox GX5 Power Carbon Fiber Paddle

The Gearbox GX5 Power Paddle is highly responsive, textured for spin, and intended for players seeking incredible pop. This design features an 8" width with an edgeless frame so you can use every bit of surface area. The graphite chambers comprising the SST (Solid Span Technology) core are laid out specifically in a way that will return more of the incoming energy of the ball, resulting in surprising power behind your strikes. The GX5 Power is great for those players who are confident in their precision, and who desire a paddle that can match their swift decision-making so opponents are forced to keep up or lose out.

The Gearbox GX5 Power Carbon Fiber Paddle is manufactured using patented SST which utilizes hand-laid graphite, instead of a polymer honeycomb core, leading to incredible durability and consistency across its entire face. Performance remains strong over time due to the lack of face/core delamination, and the slim 7/16" paddle head thickness results in improved hand speed. Choose your ideal specs with the green model at 7.8 oz., or the blue one at 8.5 oz. The handle is 4 3/4" long, with a grip circumference that can be ordered in an extra trim 3 5/8" or standard (for Gearbox) 3 15/16" around.

The GX5 Power Pickleball Paddle by Gearbox will support speedy reaction times and deliver plenty of power so you can outplay your competition like never before.
