The new Xiphos solid coverstock and proven Mohawk core allows the Spartan to read the midlane, and then make a strong, continuous and controllable arc to the pocket. In development for over nine months, this coverstock is a direct response to all of the soaker covers on the market. The Xiphos cover provides the strength of the other high end balls on the market, without the concern of absorbing so much oil that it dies out after 50 games. The Spartan 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 Spartan 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 strong midlane roll with a heavy, continuous arc reaction on the backend. With similar characteristics but a stronger cover – anyone who liked the Gladiators will love the Spartan.
