I never liked that ball.
It was super snappy and very hard to control.
It actually was similar to the Gladiator in motion.
It really rotated down the lane a lot like it was never going to do anything and when it hit the friction it snapped hard and was all over the place.
I see that with the resin asymmetric's I have tried, they tend to go very, very long and hook very fast and hard.
I don't like that effect, it seems to magnify the over/under effects I see.
The only asymmetric ball I have that rolls very smooth and true is my Black Widow Urethane.
With that ball, the strong core just makes the ball flare a ton and get into a very early roll with little to no backend.
It has even less backend for me than my Purple.
Oh, and the Widow Spare is also asymmetric and rolls hard and early too on drier conditions with little to no backend.
My Midnight Scorcher is a very weak asymmetric ball that I have actually laid out as a symmetric.
It has a very high RG of 2.67 but a super high Diff of .069!
So even though it flares a ton, it is able to get up the lane like a taller core symmetric ball and spread its hook out front to back.
So I see opposing camps on what type of ball reaction is best for me.
You seem to be suggesting very strong, early balls, that give a smooth hook through the lane so that the over/under effects are moderated and I get a more reliable and powerful ball motion at the pins, rather than being under-gunned or watching a late reaction ball do unpredictable things.
While MegaMav is recommending a ball that can get up the lane cleanly and have a strong reaction to the pins at the end of the pattern.
Low flare, tall core, just the right surface adjusted at the lanes with pads, so the hook occurs at the correct spot to get the ball to roll up as it should.
