My paddle has almost a full two inches longer grip length than this. Not sure it’ll be for meGearbox CX11E Control 8.5
When I started playing in August I watched a couple interviews with the company owner explaining the construction of their paddles and was sold, so I bought a GX6 Control 8.5. I played it for a bit but noticed that the sweet spot was small compared to friends paddles I would try (OneShot Proshot, Paddletek Tempest Wave Pro, one of the Head Radical models, Diadem Warrior). I added some lead to open the sweet spot some, but it was still lacking. I was getting ready to buy a Warrior when Gearbox announced the new paddles. I'm glad I waited.
I tried the CX11E Control 8.5 and the CX14E. The CX14E was super soft, but I didn't have enough power and had to "over swing" which lead to accuracy problems. I ended up with the CX11E and am super happy.
Compared to my GX6, it has a bigger sweet spot, more consistency, is softer, and has more spin. Zero complaints about it.
