SS Gladiator from ProCricshop.
« on: June 08, 2017, 04:58:54 PM »

Well the sharpie has returned :D. Ordered a stock gladiator from Procricshop and this is what showed up in the mail. Bat is pressed really well and ping looks good. Started knocking today and we should have a detailed review in few weeks.

Weight - 2lb 10oz
Edge - 39mm
Spine - 56mm

Looks lovely! You're a strong chap who wields a 2.11 Spartan, just whack 2 thinner grips on it, and might rectify the problem. ;)

Beautiful bat..must ping like crazy...

How is the handle thickness? Maybe the thin handle is the reason for the not good pickup?

I have seen a thin handle on my friend's TON reserve edition and this gladiator is nowhere close to that. I would say the handle is of medium thickness.

Pick up doesn't feel light. It feels what its weighs. So i am not sure if that is good or bad. I am comfortable handling this weight (as @Chad pointed out few posts before ...  :D) ..

@Chad - Yet to see another Spartan which beats that 2.11 bat! Awesome bat. When are you putting up your new sale thread  :D ?
