Are we talking strongest in oil or backend reaction.  I will assume it's in oil.  JMO . . .  

Immortal Solid
Frankie May
AMB Solid
Gladiator Solid

I haven't thrown the AMB Solid, yet, but with the slightly lower rg of the Frankie I would say it would start up a little earlier in oil than the AMB Solid.  These two could swap positions in the line-up but this is what I see from the numbers.  Given rg and differential numbers + oob conditions.

Because the Immortal and the AMB use a strong asymmetric core and the FMG and the Gladiator use a symmetric core, it's almost impossible to do this because the Asyymtric cored balls can drilled with the MB way out by the VAL and make them roll very early compared to the symmetric cored balls.

In general, I'd agree with TOmmymo, although the Immortal is a VERY early and very strong rolling ball. It can easily be placed up at the top of this hierarchy.

I will add a little to this.....

Throw into the mix the fact that an asymmetric core may also end up hooking less for the person depending on how much hand is put into the ball.  

If all things were equal and the person has a high rev rate, a ball like the Immortal or AMB Solid may end up rolling out much earlier...whereas for a low rev player, that ball might still have energy to burn at the break.

Point is.....there really are too many variables when trying to do a comparison between symmetrics vs asymmetrics.
