100% performance at under $100.

Featuring thermoformed & injected foam wall technology.
The ultimate value hands-down.
Meet the Gladius Centurion.

The Gladius Centurion is fully thermoformed using a single piece of 360-degree wrapped Toray T700 carbon fiber to provide the perfect balance between power, control, and spin. This time-intensive process requires custom molds to apply continuous heat to the entire paddle to increase the strength of the paddle.

Edgefoam is injected into the entire perimeter of the paddle to maximize the sweetspot while each layer extends the entire length of the paddle for a unibody construction, making the Gladius Centurion extremely durable.

Whether you are looking to drive winners, put away volleys, or dink at the net, the Gladius Centurion excels at any shot. All of this for only less than $100.

USAP approved for tournament play, the Gladius paddles from Spartus are the ultimate choice for any pickleball enthusiast or competitor. Upgrade your game today!

The control master

I've been playing with the Ronbus 1.16, which is a great paddle. A friend let me try the Gladius 16 and though I'd give it a try. It's my new main paddle - good touch and great spin. Power is just fine (full disclosure - I played raquet ball for a number of years). I may get a second one as a back up.


Great paddle


Excellent well balanced paddle with which one can impart great spin. The sweet spot is of good size. The grip is just a bit wider than I’d prefer but it is plenty long for a two handed backhand. Fast and free shipping. Codes for $10 off are available on YouTube.


Had it about a week now. Built well, surface is awesome for spin. Very good control with the 16mm. This really feels on par with the $250 Joola’s and the other paddles pros are playing with. I personally prefer the power of the 13mm, but the 16mm is Perfect for my wife and we both love playing with our Gladius paddles.


Solid construction, insane spin, and of course great control. One of my go-to paddles of the 20+ that I’ve tested thus far.
