Patented Solid Span Technology (SST)

Patented SST uses an advanced proprietary molding process utilizing high strength unidirectional carbon fiber, that is meticulously hand laid and arranged at very precise angles. The angle configuration of these carbon fiber is critical and directly related to the paddle’s overall durability and playability.

Superb Sound and Feel

Starting with your first hit, Gearbox paddles will have you saying WOW. The paddle has a soft quiet sound and feels solid with control. The quiet sound is great for communities with noise restrictions.

Gearbox dedicated endless hours of research and testing exclusively to both the sound and feel in a paddle. The goal was to create a paddle so outstanding in both sound and feel, that a customer would immediately feel that WOW factor.

Slim Aerodynamic Frame

The slim design has less air drag; allowing a player to move the paddle in a fast and responsive manner. In addition, the paddle has excellent torque control, feels balanced and overall is very stable. With a slim frame, maneuverability is optimized, assisting with roll for ball spin.

Carbon Fiber Edgeless Frame

The edgeless perimeter of the paddle expands the overall hitting surface area of the paddle face, all together helping to increase the size of the sweet spot. This design also helps reduce potential mishits.

Massive Sweet Spot

Gearbox engineers can be very precise with the overall size and response of the sweet spot. This delivers a paddle with a remarkable ball response from the center of the paddle to its perimeter. This also gives the paddle a consistent performance, optimizing shot accuracy and returning more energy back to the ball with every shot.

Hyper Bite Spin Technology

Gearbox achieves spin in its paddles with various technologies, including Aerodynamic Slim Frame design, High Performance Grip Circumference and Hyper Bite Spin Technology.

Hyper Bite Spin Technology gives the paddle surface more ball bite, offering spin on demand.
