Both are nice rigs. If you are wanting the best boat for the money pick the Gladiator. If you want the best boat pick the GTX. You can pick up used Gladiators for a good price .

Well I made the decision and bought a Gladiator, but you cant compare the 2 boats because they have never ran a 37 gtx to my knowledge. But when the factory 2 boats ran, the cigarette pretty much always beat the 37. P.S. I rode on Enrique Iglesias LIP-SHIP gladiator @107.1 MPH GPS.

well let see a 37 qaud step stand up with speed sixes and 675's does 110.00 mph so the sit down shoul do at least 113.00 mph and if we added 50 horse then we would be damm close to 115mph with speed sixes, take off the sixes and go bravo drive your doing 122.00 mph

you get what you pay for

Thats great mr. treadwell but the boat that was at the boat show was a single step. The same bottom the ran 85 mph with 500's when the cigarette went 90. 110 is pretty fast with 675's when it only went 114 with 900's.

The two boats will probably run similar numbers. However, can the Gladiator handle and fit BIG hp--900+ like the OL?

What OL with 675's is running 110???? An '02 Quad-Step w/800's is running 106mph. At National Marine, an '01 w/ 1000's runs 115mph.
