    • NEW! HYPER SPIN TECHNOLOGY: Get ready to boost your Spin. The GBX’s paddle surface is constructed with Toray T-700 Carbon Fiber.

    • NEW! POWER1 TECHNOLOGY: The Power1 technology consists of a Gearbox engineered lay-up to the throat area of the paddle. This lay-up allows the throat to flex for Power and optimal Stiff ness. This technology also increases swing speed, amplifying its power performance .
