    PickleballGalaxy General Notes

    Upgrade Your Pickleball Paddle Grip to a Python Rubber Grip for unbelievable comfort and control. They don't just look great on your paddle they will also last for the life of your paddle. Python rubber grips work best with a leather glove.


    Love it!

    I was using a heavier paddle and the lightweight Gearbox is so much better. I feel like I have more control and it doesn’t hurt my wrist.

    Love this paddle
    Verified Buyer
    I love this paddle, has both power and control and coming from tennis it’s not too heavy for me. Won my first tournament the week after I got it.

    Great Paddle
    Verified Buyer
    The one piece graphite design makes the paddle feel natural in my hand. The control style seems to really grip the ball. I love the edge less style - it seems to give me a larger surface area. Since I got mine, four others in our group have also switched gearbox paddles within one month!

    A couple of friends of mine bought this paddle and I tried it out and liked it. I like that the handle is shorter so it fits my hand better. I haven't had it long but am enjoying it and I know I will be using it for a very long time.

    I tried out 4 Gearbox demos and decided the GX5 7.8 oz was the best for me. Excellent touch and power. I custom ordered a Python grip and still received it in 2 days with free shipping. I would recommend using a demo program before buying. Most of my friends (including 5.0+ "pros")have the elongated GX6, but I prefer a traditional wider paddle. My 2nd time ordering from Pickleball Galaxy and I'm 100% satisfied.

    So far my "Goldilocks" paddle. I've tried quite a few high end paddles and so far this is the best considering it's not the priciest. Bigger sweet spot, durable (for all those paddle clash), feels solid and still keeping control which is a very important aspect on my game. I highly recommend this paddle.

    I have tried various paddles and this stands out as superior to the rest of the competition. The carbon fiber technology far surpasses anything on the market. I highly recommend this paddle. It is light, durable, and flexible. It will raise your game to another level.

    Amazing feel
    Verified Buyer
    I’m an ex-tennis player who can generate power. This paddle has much better feel and control than the other paddies I’ve used. Highly recommend.

    GX5 Control
    Verified Buyer
    I shattered my elbow on the pickleball court and my previous paddle cracked. I was looking for a lighter padded with a smaller grip and found this. I'm very pleased with the results I'm getting but it will take more time to get back to where I was. Immediate shipping and was here in 2 days. Excellent service, I brought one just before the closure of all courts and their return policy was perfect.
