Description of the Racquet

Gearbox is now 10 years old and they are so excited to celebrate it that they designed their new 2017-2018 racquet line around the anniversary. The new racquet line will be the same feel of the GBX1 but they spruced up the paint job on the new line to show off their 10 year anniversary. If you loved the previous GBX1 racquet line or have been wanting to try Gearbox this cool and fresh looking line might be your choice. This year once again consists of 6 new frames ranging from 165 grams to 185 grams. There are 3 teardrop racquets in the 165 and 170 weight range (For the Power Player) and 3 quadraform racquets in the 165, 170, and 185 weights (Power w/more control). This new series is continuing with the C3 Power Groove technology which is explained below.

Technology for GBX1 10th Anniversary Series

New C3 Power Groove is a single groove that extends the entire length of the racquet down to the throat area. The C3 Power Groove creates three concave shapes in the structure of the racquet.

  • Radical Concave – Creates a larger hitting surface area, increases the overall size of the “sweet spot” and provides impact resistance at the head giving the racquet more strength.
  • Double Radical Concave – Expands the main strings and cross strings to their maximum possible distance resulting in superior Power and Control.
  • Progressive Concave – Increases overall main strings length providing more Power and Control

These three concave shapes in combination work synergistically to maximize Power, Control and racquet strength. The C3 Power Groove also increases string deflection to its maximum distance resulting in exceptional power.

These are available in 3 5/8 and 3 15/16 grip sizes

A full racquet cover IS NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option to add a full cover for $10 if you would like.

RacquetWorld's General Notes

I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), which will be $11.00 installed, for the added traction to prevent slippage.  The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down.For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.

The Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable than the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $22.00.  It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away. Another string we highly recommend is the Python Atlas Deluxe restring upgrade ($25.00), and it’s a little softer than the original Atlas for those players that prefer a softer string with incredible playability/durability.

If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Python Vibration Dampner (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).

The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.

A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet. Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!

We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet. 

Racquet Covers - Choose one for $10 (RacquetWorld Cover is Only $8.00)

A full racquet cover is NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option of adding a full cover for $8-10 if you would like. If you want the best cover on the market buy the Racquetworld Cover. It is oversized, has a full outside pocket, a handle strap and a large shoulder strap as well as a ventilated pocket to let your grip breathe and best of all its $2 less than the others because we want to help you by supporting our company! The charge will only be $8.00 when added to the cart for this choice instead of $10.00 like the other covers.
