The Gearbox Pro Power Elongated is the most powerful legal paddle on the market and has the second-highest pop of any paddle I’ve tested.  With that elite power and pop comes a sacrifice of control and a smaller-than-average sweet spot.  This paddle is for aggressive players who still have good touch because this paddle will hurt your soft game.

Spin

The Gearbox Pro Power Elongated has great spin so that helps keep your powerful drives and serves in.  You need every bit of that spin because the ball just launches off this paddle.

Power/Pop

You get elite pop as well with a slightly higher swing weight than average at 121.  This paddle excels for someone looking to rip forehand and backhand drives.  You can serve big with this paddle then follow up short returns with a drive.  You will have no trouble finishing overheads with this paddle.  Your counter punches will be fast with little movement.  The swing weight can hold you back in hands battles being on the higher side but all you need to do is get one good shot with this paddle to put the ball away.  The control is hard with this paddle as the ball comes off so fast and the sweet spot is a little small. 

Control/Feel

The paddle also twists in your hand a bit on resets and blocking drives so my preferred way to play this paddle is with weight added.  My ideal setup for this paddle is with 3g of lead tape on each side at the 4 and 8 o’clock position.  This helps improves the stability of the paddle a bit and doesn’t increase the swing weight too much.  You can play this paddle stock but the control suffers.  There is also a harsh vibration that you feel with off center shots, so if that bothers you it is a good thing to know.  The price is another one to consider as at $275 there aren’t many paddles close in price but it offers something no other paddle currently does.

There’s a lot of clutter and garbage on the internet, so why would you trust us? 

Well, because we don’t sell paddles. We get paid a small cut when you use our discount code so it’s a win-win and we can be unbiased in our recommendations. 

Furthermore, we only recommend paddles that we have personally tested. We use each paddle for a minimum of 3 weeks and try to collect and present the most objective review possible. 

Sure…we give our thoughts, but we also want to give you, the reader, all the information to form your own opinion.
