Gearbox PRO Power Elongated Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle
"Innovative to the Core"More about the PRO Power Elongated Pickleball Paddle!
Reach, power, and precision...the Gearbox PRO Power Elongated Pickleball Paddle allows you to stealthily overpower during hands battles, and crush a winner when the opportunity presents itself. At the center of this powerful paddle is a 14mm (0.55") carbon fiber SSTCore. To engineer max power, Gearbox suspended the vertical carbon structures in the middle of paddle, allowing them to return energy to the ball and impart spin as well, very much like the strings of a tennis racquet. This breakthrough core design also mitigates the negative effects of mis-hits, and minimizes impact vibrations which can travel up your arm and aggrivate muscle and joint issue. But make no mistake, this paddle was engineered to deliver eye-popping power.
The PRO Power Elongated Paddle from Gearbox Pickleball continues the theme of power with elongated 16.5" by 7-3/8" overall proportions, raw Toray T-700 carbon fiber hitting surface, and 5.5" long handle with plenty of room for two-handed drives. When near the net the elongated shape promotes reach, while the slim profile and 8.0 oz static weight enable quick hands and post-contact recovery to ready position. To augment your spin game, the rough T-700 face imparts nasty rotation on cuts and slices to keep your opponents guessing. This texture is not a peel-ply approach on top of the face material, Gearbox's TXR Surface Grip Technology IS the face material so you can be assured the texture will be very long-lasting.
Finally, Gearbox has engineered "quiet tech" into their PRO models which emits a lower decibel sound upon impact. This is perfect for noise-restricted communities, disguises the power behind your shots, and will one of the first details you notice which set this paddle apart from many others.

Great spin, not unworldy. Comores well to other good spin paddles. Power is surprising. A little too much sometimes, ie., defending speed ups or mid court drives directly at your body often go a bit long. Still adjusting.

This is a very good paddle but not for everyone. Most players would benefit from a more control oriented paddle, this is not that. This is a power paddle with decent control that can be inconsistent. This paddle needs a "Breaking-in" period where the internal core needs time to open up. It may also take you 40+ hours before you can feel comfortable with it. All that being said, it is very fun and very powerful. Great spin and quick in the hands.

I'm a 4.0+ player coming from a legacy pro. Grip was below 4.25" and weighed at 7.65 below the 8.0 oz in description. Happy with this purchase, but requires adjustment time to see full benefits of this paddle.
Lives up to the hype
