The Katana Legend might replace the Slash as my favorite Katana to date.  The strength and versatility of the Legend is something to behold.  I used a 45x4.25x35 “All Purpose” layout, and I think “All Purpose” is a great way to describe it.  The Legend allows me to play anywhere on the lane.  I can take a little hand out of it and play down the boards, I can get around it and circle the whole lane.  Being a high speed player with a low tilt, I don’t usually get that versatility out of a single ball.  The most amazing part about the Legend is how it doesn’t lose anything changing surface.  I have used mine from out of box shine, all the way down to 1500 and the ball just keeps hooking and never quits.  It truly is astonishing.  If you are a league bowler and are looking for “one ball that does it all”, the Katana Legend may be just what you are looking for.

My Personal Reflection:
The OG Katana is cleaner and has a sharper motion off of the pattern. The Katana Slash has a smoother motion but still has enough back end to cut through the carry down.

The Katana Legend takes the Katana series to an entirely different level! The Legend reminds me how the Katana Dragon reads the mid lane however it is a bit smoother vs the Dragon. The Legend's motion off the pattern reminds me of the Conspiracy with the amount of continuation off the pattern the ball has.

You could say that the Legend is a combination of the bests features of the Dragon and Conspiracy!!!
