Gearbox GX5 Control Heavyweight Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle

The Gearbox GX5 Control Heavyweight Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle control features a one-piece design made out of carbon fiber. The solid span technology provides the GX5 with unmatched performance and paddle responsiveness. The carbon fiber design helps give the Gearbox GX5 Control Heavyweight Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle a soft feel for outstanding control and a quiet hitting surface. The GX5 is unique compared to the majority of other pickleball paddles because it does not feature a honeycomb core. The Gearbox GX5 Control Heavyweight Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle is also edgeless, which makes the paddle aerodynamic and increases the overall sweet spot. This Gearbox GX5 Control Heavyweight Carbon Fiber Pickleball Paddle control model is a heavyweight model with an average weight of 8.5oz.
