With the same specs as its Blue brother, the Gearbox Solid 1.0 170Q is more forgiving on off center shots with it's wider head shape and sweet spot.  Gearbox has added two new technologies in conjunction with their Solid Head and Proportional Frame designs.  New in the Solid 1.0 line are the Displacement Channels for improved structural integrity and maximum power and the new String Dimples, designed to reduce harsh string angles and improve frame durability.  The new cosmetics give these improved frames a fresh, contemporary look.

Comments: I completely agree.  This is a great racquet. It in itself has escalated my game in power, reach and accuracy.  Gearbox was an unknown to me but not anymore.

Comments: I read reviews about this racquet and have wanted to try it for some time. I have used a judgment stun 175 which I liked for control, a head dirty deed, a head Full house, and a ProKennex Quad. All of those rackets are inferior to the Solid 1.0. This racket was the best out of the box I've used without question. Great control and accuracy. I love how smooth this racquet powers through the ball.

Comments: I own 2 of these racquets and have nothing negative to say about them. This is a totally forgiving racquet with dead nut on accuracy. I'm so glad I invested in Gearbox and as long as they continue this high quality - I'll continue to buy their product. Way to go guys!

Comments: I demoed every major racquet out there and I switched from a Head Black Jack to this Gearbox Solid 170 Q for three reasons. Great power with fantastic control with the most forgiving racquet I have ever used in ten YEARS ! Absolutely Wonderful. Nothing comes close to this racquet
