New Racquets from Gearbox

June 9th, 2008 by Geoff Thomsen

Gearbox made a big splash at this year’s 2008 USA Racquetball National Singles Championships with a large booth showcasing the new frames for 2008-2009.  After some product training from Joel Arredondo and Rafael Filippini, I got a pretty good feel for the new racquets from Gearbox.  Building off the popular Gearbox GB250 (170g), two new frames will debut this season.  They will both feature the same design as the GB250, but will offer two new weights – 165g and 185g.  The GB250 from last year will get a graphics refresh with gold letter replacing the silver versions.  There was a also a pink GB250 (170g, I believe) in the Gearbox booth, but I didn’t get a close-up (manufacturer’s booth photos coming soon).  Rafael was also telling me about his road trips in the Gearbox RV, spreading the good racquetball word across the nation.
