    One of the most sought out Gearbox racquets of all time is finally back in stock at an unreal price and it is only available at The GB250 series is what started it all for Gearbox in helping make them the powerhouse racquet manufacturer they are today. When the Feather sold for $200 it was hard to keep in stock and now that it is below $130 it will be even harder. Pick up 1, 2 or 3 before it’s too late as this will be one of the best deals we have available in this price range.

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

    RacquetWorld General Notes

    RacquetWorld recommends 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.

    Very light racquet
    Verified Buyer
    Your game will improve with this racquet. It is very light and will increase your power. The only potential negative is since it is so light you may over swing and hurt your elbow (tennis elbow).

    Great Racquet
    Verified Buyer
    I purchased my first GB250-165 Quad back in November and then turned around an ordered another to match. I have used Head racquets for years and wished I had switched earlier. Not only did I gain a ton of control, I did not noticed any diminished power. Just ask my playing companions. I can actually hit the ball harder knowing I can control it. The biggest improvement was cutting off a lob. I can now step-up and feel like I can hammer it while still hitting a good shot. LOVE IT!!!

    Gearbox from now on
    Verified Buyer
    I purchased this GB Feather 165 as a spare to my first one. This racquet has tremendous power with great feel. The racquet is very stable and the frame feels indestructible. I have played with a lot of different top end racquets and this one fits my game the best. This racquet compares to any of the others especially for a great price. My only change was I added a Head Tacki-Mac grip.

    Gearbox Top Perfomance Racquet
    Verified Buyer
    Was skeptical about buying this Racquet for a month! Finally made the decision to buy it after reading several reviews! Got it this past Friday October 26, 2018! And played racquetball with it! This Racquet is phenomenal superb power and control! It has a wicked feel when you swing and hit the ball! Love it so versatile with any shot! I have played racquetball for years and hit with many racquets and using gearbox top of the line racquets for the last five years! This Racquet is a superior performer and will only bring your game to higher level of performance! The only regret I have is waiting for a month and finally purchasing this great Racquet by Gearbox! Thank you racquetball world for making this Racquet available! You guys are awesome!

    Stellar Racquet. Period.
    Verified Buyer
    Was always skeptical of Gearbox ... But when I saw the emails this racquet came back to Racquetworld its looks immediately grabbed my attention. The all white is so sleek and really stands out. I was intrigued .. so I demo'd this racquet. Needless to say, the very FIRST time I hit with it on the court, I was easily hitting the cleanest I've ever hittin in my life, with such power and great control and maneuverability. I was so shocked and amazed, I ordered one that very same night. Unbelievable racquet at such a killer price. This racquet Will take your game to the next level if you feel you are in a slump. Open your mind, try something different, and demo this racquet. You will soon find you ordering one for yourself. I love this racquet.

    Best of the Best
    Getting up in age I have had to go to a lighter racquet. My faves have become the E-Force products, however! This line of Gearbox racquet is the best of the best, the balance and power is not going to be easy beaten. A great product.

    Exclusive RacquetWorld Racquet Ratings

    Ratings and comparisons for all racquets can be found in RacquetWolrd Exclusive Racquet Ratings

    Racquetworld's Durability Rating:  94.50 

    Racquetworld's Power Rating: Age 24-  98.88  Age 35  95.05  Age 45+  94.07 

    Racquetworld's Control Rating #1 (Front Court):  94.56 

    Control 1 (Front Court) represents how the racquet handles upfront in the court. We are basically looking at how certain components stacked together to produce good (or bad) racquet maneuverability. To figure this out we look at the weight, balance point, and shape of the frame. We throw all this info into Pat's brain along with a couple hours of hit testing and out pops the rating. This value is useful especially for doubles players who find themselves covering the upfront court a lot. It is also good to know if you are a good server and find yourself quickly putting away returns off your serve without leaving front middle court.

    Racquetworld's Control Rating #2 (Back Court):  93.08 

    Control 2 (Back Court) represents the traditional control rating when taking a full shot from mid to back court. Our goal with control is to redirect the Force of the ball. We again focus on weight, balance point, shape, string pattern and tension, frame stiffness and on court experience.

    Racquetworld's Overall Rating: Age 24-   99.25   Age 35  94.50   Age 45+  94.01
