pretty sure feldy bagged it because he designed it,which is also what confused me on the lack of popularity

Have there been any reviews comparing these?

There was a new guy this morning throwing them at Wilco. So that's two!

The situation would change completely if Ricky started throwing Gladiator's instead of Enforcers and Defenders. It's sort of crazy that after two world championship's Latitude hasn't really figured out how to move plastic with Ricky the way Innova can with McBeth.

I imagine part of the hoop la is that this is basically as good as the defender. But it isn't getting that kind of recognition.

Would like to see some field tests side by side to the defender.

I said to one of my fellow leaguers "What is the best Destroyer (flying to the numbers) that Trilogy makes." His response was the Defender but I was curious as to what the differences are between the Defender, Cutlass, Giant, Gladiator and Trespass. I had a Next Gen stamped Gladiator that I won as a CTP but I traded it to a buddy for a Luster Rhyno because I never thought I would throw it.

well,from my experience , the opto defender is more hss than the opto gladiator. it is most likely closer to the beefed up moonshine gladiator but just if we're just talking opto then the defender is more os. ive only thrown a few gladiators though and sometimes mine tends to hold straighter but still has the healthy fade.

nice,at least im not alone lol.

i agree though, if ricky raved about the gladiators they would be sold out and hard to find probably. im actually surprised they dont ask him to throw lat exclusively like ive heard dd asks their players to do.

i was watching wysocki's ITB and noticed he has a gladiator in the bag now. hopefully he boosts some of the popularity so they can make it in more plastics.

Also noticed, maybe he's starting to cycle out the enforcers slowly?

Since I'm a 340' noodle I barely throw mine but I'm looking forward practicing more with those sweet long reliable hyzers.
