The Gladiator LE uses the Panoptic coverstock (a blend of several reactive coverstocks) along with the Mohawk core, to create a ball with easier length than either the Gladiator Pearl or Solid, and provides a smooth transition on the backends. While not meant for extremely dry lane conditions, this ball handles lighter patterns very well and will give you the length and control you need for when the lanes breakdown.

This specially blended material was originally produced for an international order that unfortunately got canceled due to the economic downturn in their market. As a result of these circumstances, we are releasing this ball in the US as a limited edition ball, individually numbered to 1,000.


The GLADIATOR line is equipped with an asymmetrical, dense center core design with a lighter wrap. This allows for a quicker revving ball that begins to roll in the midlane while keeping a controllable continuous arc reaction on the backend. The “MOHAWK” on the core creates a mild mass bias for fine tuning the balls reaction.

The GLADIATOR core takes a candy wrapper shape and adds a “MOHAWK” to produce a mild mass bias and better pin positions. The med-low RG ball with a medium differential creates a good midlane roll with a continuous arc reaction on the backend. With similar characteristics but a more durable cover – anyone who liked the Executioner line should love the Gladiators

I purchased this LE ball after talking to Frankie in Reno last year 2010.  He highly recommended it and I needed a new dry lane ball.  Love the way this ball rolls.  I have high revs high speed and I can pull this ball out on the drier lanes and you can see it read the lane but just have a little flip instead of some uncontrolled backend flip.  I tried this on the cheetah pattern one night and loved it.
I am bowling on the Broadway pattern this weekend and will assume it is going to be my go to ball.
