Gearbox MAX2 185Q Black Racquet
+ Demo Racquet


Durability, power, and hot new graphics will help you achieve your MAX potential! The Gearbox MAX2 185Q racquet features an all new Material Response System (M.R.S.) which maximizes the frame's response by adjusting the ratio of High Modulus Graphite and Higher Impact Resistant Graphite. Weighing in around 15 grams heavier than it's MAX1 Red predecessor, this MAX2 185Q is slightly less maneuverable (because of an increased swingweight) but has the same 6 point head-heavy balance.  Overall, this new design includes improved torsional stiffness, more power, and continues the tradition of durable frames that Gearbox is known for.

Comments: When I used this frame, the thing that I noticed was the head-heavy balance.  There was easy power off the frame.  I found when I had the time, the ball exploded off the string bed.  the issue I had is: the racquet felt so ssssssssllllooooooowwwwww coming around I think I would prefer a lighter frame.  Otherwise, the racquet felt durable, solid and looked good.
