The new Gearbox CX14H is not cheap but the PicklrShop made the purchase easier with its first time buy discount and free shipping! The paddle has awesome control, accuracy is so light and quick! I definitely recommend it and the PicklrShop!
I first started with a cheap 50.00 paddle and I quickly found myself frustrated with my first paddle. A member at a local gym let me try the CX14H & E. I instantly fell in love with the CX14H. I like the feedback in the paddle and you instantly know if you have a good dink or not. When it comes to resets the paddle has a lot of rebound so you don’t have to hold it as tight as other paddles I tried. I would say this paddle is more of a control paddle and helps slow the game down when you’re playing with bangers! But when it’s time to put the ball away you can definitely do it! The CX14E is a good paddle as well and very well balanced. My only downfall is with it not being as wide as the standard H. When you go to reset a ball you better make sure you try to get the ball as close to the sweet spot as possible or the paddle with twist more than the H. But overall still a great paddle!

Love the CX14 paddles. Now I have both the E & the H. ThePicklerShop shipped the CX14H fast and I got enough points to get some over grips. Thanks!
I am ranked somewhere between 3 and 3.5, so please understand that from the start. This paddle will not ultimately change your game unless you are moving from a $20 starter paddle to this one. That being said, this has to be my favorite paddle to date. (and I have tried many!) This paddle is not a power paddle. You get plenty of spin, and power, but it is not like some of the other I have tried such as from Engage. What this paddle does though, is provide a very good touch game. I have more control with this paddle than with my Selkird Vanguard S2 which is saying a lot. At the net, I can place the ball wherever I want and I'm confident with each shot. With this paddle I can slow the ball down like never before and get into a good dink game. Then when the moment is right, I can speed the game back up and with confidence. The construction of the paddle is excellent, and I don't see trying any new paddles in the near future. The cost is a bit high, but still in line with some other premium paddles on the market. I have no regrets with my purchase and highly recommned this paddle if you want to improve your touch game.
