It’s clear from our several interviews with Gearbox’s Founder, CEO, and Lead Engineer Rafael Filipinni, that his goal is to exceed industry standards with new technologies and forward-thinking innovation that will have an immediate positive impact on a player’s game. By all indications, they’ve hit it out of the park with the Pro Series. Watch and listen as the man behind the creation of these pickleball paddles talks about how they have separated themselves from the pack.

Gearbox Pro Series vs. CX14 Series

Gearbox has added five patent-pending technologies to help in the following key areas: power, control, spin, sweet spot, and noise reduction. 

  1. PrecisionCore Technology - more control, more sweet shots, more points! Patent-pending Precision Core Technology optimizes the paddle core’s density, creating a massive sweet spot with superior accuracy and consistency for precise shot performance.
  2. Smart Dampen Technology - for the best feeling paddle possible.  The Smart Dampen proprietary process reduces paddle vibration, delivering a plush controlled touch for enhanced comfort and shot mastery.
  3. TXR Surface Grip Technology - the ball has never spun so much! Experience a spin revolution with TXR Surface Grip. This new, patent-pending texture application technology catapults spin rate levels and unlocks incredible ball grip, allowing you to effortlessly shape and spin the ball.
  4. Flexplay Technology - for all-around playability, control, and accuracy. Flexplay's proprietary manufacturing method refines carbon fiber dynamics, optimizing torsional resistance, blending moments, flex, and responsiveness to create a tailored paddle performance and play experience.
  5. Quiet Tech Sound Technology - less noise, fewer problems! Quiet Tech Sound technology creates a lower decibel, lower frequency sound standard, and is ideal for noise-restricted communities. Plus your opponent will be challenged in deciphering between a stealthy dink or a power shot.
