Here To Win

If there is a single reason that you should check out this website, it would be to visit the The Technology link to understand better the unique characteristics of the patented Gearbox Solid Span Technology and to specifically watch video segments of Gearbox Mastermind Rafael Filipini literally peeling back the covers to get a peek at the internals of the SST (solid span technology) as it compares to the internals of the honeycomb paddle design that is inherent in EVERY OTHER paddle on the market today. HINT: thicker is not better folks, you merely need to try SST to know that.

Greg Murphy's (orange GX5) & Greg Baker's (red GX6) in the queue to play @ Kenmore (the early days, before we had sold 30+ Gearbox paddles to SFS members). Now, you'll see Gearbox paddles everywhere!

Introducing Pickleball 4/2020 - These were the very early days of our conversion from racquetball to pickleball (about a month or so into it), we were playing with the Onix pure 2 ball and experimenting with paddles ranging from cheapie sub $20's to the elite Selkirk (purchased used-on-ebay for about $80). Covid-19 drove us from the indoor danger zone of enclosed racquetball courts to the safer outdoors to explore a new activity that would give us much desired cardio while the pandemic passed over. Who'd have thunk over a year later that we'd still be battling it?

What do you do when you have too many people and not enough courts? Quad Pickleball Max of course!
