#Itsbeast and your opponent will know it! Gearbox is making a splash with the latest of the 170Q family, the Gearbox MAX1 170Q. With a powerful 8 points head-heavy balance, a quadraform head shape, and a swing-weight of 152, the MAX1 170Q is a force to be reckoned with! New Solid Head Power Technology now extends to 45% of the frame, which compresses graphite creating a concave head shape, doubling the wall thickness and durability without adding material or weight. Also new to the MAX1 line, Power Bevels that increase string bed deflection to maximize energy into the ball, and the largest sweet-spot of any Gearbox racquet. Don't let your opponent get to this beast first!

Comments: What a fantastic racquet. I playtested the Head Ares and  the  Gearbox Quad 170, both fine racquets but the Gearbox  was the winner.  Big sweet spot even on miss hits, plenty of power and fantastic control.  TY RbW for the demos and  TY  Gearbox for a fine racquet. A playtester at RbW told me to try the Gearbox Max 1 Quad and I would be very HAPPY, what a nice guy.
