GearBox CX14H (Hyper Shape)
I’ve been using the CX 14 H for 2 weeks now. After an initial period of adjustment (I’ve been using a honeycomb paddle for 5 years) I find the Gearbox paddle is awesome. I can generate more spin and find I have better control. Very well balanced which to me makes the paddle feel lighter than my old paddle which was a similar weight. We’ll done Gearbox!!
I am about average 3.5 -3.8 ish player. I find this paddle as advertised! Less pop, tons of control. It actually feels like you have a half second more to decide what to do when the ball is on the paddle. I was using a Gearbox G5 8.5 oz Control model which I was quite happy with but it was 2 years old and I decided I should splurge on new technology. I have only been using it for a couple weeks now. So far, very pleased with the control but still getting use to the lack of “pop”. I have to consciously add more power when blocking and returning shots. It’s a learning curve and I’m confident it will come. I have not been an “spin” player but this paddle has allowed me to test that part of the game. Overall, the awesome feel and control makes me very confident that I made the right choice and this paddle will improve my game.
Was hoping for less pop back on hard drives. I have a CX5 and now off the serve I can hit the ball harder with less ball flight time and the blocks are less likely to go out. Very Happy with the paddle
I have only used my great new paddle on 3 occasions so far but I am extremely happy with it and haven't had a learning curve. I have been using more hits to practice the spin that I didn't do before.
Perfectly package. Received the Canada post earlier than expected. Very happy!!

SOLID SPAN TECHNOLOGY
Solid Span Technology (ST) is a patented technology invented by Gearbox engineers. The goal: to create the most innovative paddle in pickleball that you can rely on. SST describes an advanced proprietary molding process using a blend of high strength carbon fibre materials to form a ribbed core and one-piece construction. The carbon fibre material is meticulously hand-laid and then rolled to create the only patented ribbed core in all of pickleball. The paddle's core, face and perimeter are constructed with hundreds of plies of 3K woven carbon fibre and T-700 carbon fibre material. SST has introduced the strongest #1 performing ribbed core paddle in the pickleball industry.
3K WOVEN CARBON FIBER
REMARKABLE FEEL & CONSISTENCY
The CX Collections have been crafted with 3K woven carbon fibre on both the face and perimeter of the paddle, unlocking a premium feel and sound, a larger sweet spot, greater spin, added torsion control, and more durability. This new material also helps to reduce vibration back to the hand and gives the paddle ace more consistency from the centre of the face to the edge.
HYPER-BITE SPIN TECHNOLOGY
SPIN FROM THE CORE
This technology creates spin starting from the ST ribbed core and building out to the paddle face. Our patented ribbed core allows for maximum bite on the ball throughout the swing, further increasing the spin velocity of the ball. In addition to the 3K woven carbon fibre, a urethane coat and advanced texture is applied to the paddle face to boost spin.
ENHANCED SWEET SPOT
LARGER & MORE FORGIVING
To enhance the sweet spot and make it even larger, numerous 3K woven carbon fibre and T-700 carbon fibre plies have been repositioned to provide a more forgiving and smarter sweet spot. This improvement helps capture more shots and provide the performance you need.
STABLE & MANEUVERABLE
Our 14mm profiles are shaped to cut and glide through the air. Our sleek aerodynamic edge design provides outstanding maneuverability, optimized spin and effortless play.
CARBON FIBER EDGELESS FRAME
STRONG & AERODYNAMIC
The paddle's entire edgeless perimeter has been reinforced with additional plies of 3K carbon fibre, with special attention to the two top corners, further improving the paddles overall strength, wear-resistance, and Gearbox's market-leading durability.
