Gearbox CX14E Elongated Pickleball Paddle

The Gearbox CX14E Elongated Pickleball Paddle is made with a 14mm thick core (0.55") that is thicker than Gearbox's typical 11mm thickness. In fact, the CX14 series is the first from Gearbox to apply their patented Solid Span Technology (SST) to a thick-core design. The SST core is comprised of graphite chambers arranged precisely such that the paddle offers excellent touch and potency, yet the long shape and thicker core add to stability. Better still, the core design doesn't run the risk of delamination so that you never have to worry about your paddle developing dead spots.

The Gearbox CX14E Elongated Pickleball Paddle has a 16-5/8" overall length, which increases players' reach and ability to defend across the court. It also has a 5-5/8" long handle so that you can add double-handed backhands to your repertoire. The grip circumference can either be selected in a 3-5/8" or 3-15/16" size. This paddle comes in a single 8.0 oz. weight that is optimized to provide power without being so heavy as to reduce reaction time or hand speed.

The Gearbox CX14E Elongated Pickleball Paddle is an adaptable model that will help you improve your skills and precision with every game.

Reviews of the CX14E Elongated Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:


"I was very excited to play with the newest innovations from Gearbox. The Gearbox paddles truly are unique, and I am always interested to see how they play. But before I get to the playability, let me just say these paddles look great. The clear coat over the face, with the logo embedded above the carbon fiber layer, gives the look of the paddle some really attractive visual depth.

The biggest difference you feel in the paddle is in the thickness of the core – 14mm compared to the 11mm of the
GX5 Control and GX6 Control models. The paddle absorbs more of the energy and makes it the softest playing Gearbox yet, with very little feedback from the paddle. The sweet spot is generous and the paddle plays quite consistently. I played with the Elongated model, as that is the type of paddle I prefer. While I had no trouble with getting balls deep, I felt it missed just a little put away power. It was recommended that I add lead tape to the upper portion of the paddle to gain back the power, and I am excited to give that a try next time out.

Overall, the mad scientists at Gearbox have created another level of technology that adds to the already impressive performance of their paddles."

5 of 5 Great paddle January 15, 2022
Reviewer: Jim Trulby from Franklin, MA United States  
Initially purchased the CX11E. Felt it had dead spots towards the top of the paddle. Sent it back for the CX14E..really like it. Definitely much softer than any other Gearbox, but once I got used to it, really loved the touch game. Good paddle and might actually be worth the $$s!
