AKA: Dranzer Gigs / Dranzer Gigus (Full Name)
Attack Ring: Wing Survivor
Very high recoil due to poorly angled contact points
Some Smash Attack ability, but not enough to be worthwhile, again due to poor focusing of hits from the poorly angled contact points which mean most of the energy is wasted in recoil.
Has slopes for Upper Attack and Force Smash, but only the latter is particularly effective, and even then the recoil means Smash Turtle is a better choice. That is still Wing Survivor's best use, however.
Usable for Smash Attack, with some recoil concerns due to the contact point shape and somewhat limited power.
Compared to Right Spin, less recoil but less power.
Not competitive in this spin direction.
Weight Disk: Ten Balance
Decent weight, with a compact yet edge-focussed distribution which makes for good all-around performance.
Thanks to the additional weight, the weight distribution provides a good mix of RPM maintenance/grinding and overall survival ability.
Generally outclassed by Wide Defense unless a more compact weight distribution is required. This is most noticeable in Compacts and Semi-Flat Base Stamina, where the compact weight distribution helps their stability and grinding ability while providing a little extra survival over mode compact options. However for compacts, the greater weight of Ten Heavy is generally preferred.
Overall a good part.
SonoKong G-Blade Mold (as opposed to their earlier mold) is generally very similar to the regular mold, meaning it can be used interchangeably.
Spin Gear: Right Engine Gear (Metal Semi-Flat)
More of a small flat tip rather than Semi-Flat, as the edges aren't bevelled.
Moderately aggressive movement, but not all that much.
Final Clutch Bases are generally better than First Clutch (which tend to break flower pattern or even Self-KO), only due to the chance of a desperate last minute attack which generally lacks the speed to do anything but sometimes even manages a loose flower pattern. Were the available bases less tall, this might have been useful with an Attack Ring like Square Edge, however Engine Gear setups are too tall to make use of it.
Overall though, a lighter and less bulky Normal Base (Wolborg 4 Version) or Normal Base (Rock Bison Version) is generally a better way to go unless you want to show off the EG Gimmick. In this case it is best to not wind the EG.
Right Engine Gear (Metal Flat) tends to do everything Metal Semi-Flat aims to do better, making it heavily outclassed.
Generally better than Left Engine Gear (Metal Semi-Flat) due to access to good overhanging ARs such as Triple Tiger.
Blade Base: Final Clutch Base (Dranzer G Version)
Engine Gear compatible Blade Base with Final Clutch.
The heaviest Final Clutch Base and second heaviest EG Base overall after First Clutch Base (Zeus Version), with relatively edge-focused weight distribution and an okay if slightly recoil prone side profile.
Despite the weight, it is not useful with Circle Survivor as its details scrape slightly and its edges have recoil when hit, making the combination much more vulnerable to being thrown off balance and outspun by opponents using Customize Grip Base for example.
Clutch activates late in the battle, on most combinations this is an issue leading to instability or just not very useful as the overall RPM has dropped too far to effectively KO, but for this particular Blade Base as well as Final Clutch Base (Gaia Dragoon G Version), this has notable use.
Most notably, alongside Final Clutch Base (Gaia Dragoon G Version), this Blade Base is one of two which work with Right Engine Gear (Metal Flat) to create strong Life After Death properties due to post-topple firing of the Engine Gear and the overall shape of the Blade Base
Compared to Final Clutch Base (Gaia Dragoon G Version), tends to be slightly better due to heavier weight and an overall better shape, but is also generally not worth the overinflated cost of upgrading to, given that Base comes alongside the EG required to make either viable and Dranzer G suffers from an extremely severe case of Kai Tax (the phenomenon where people will pay and charge ungodly amounts of money for anything associated with Bakuten Shoot's resident Edgy 00's Antihero) while the other releases of this Blade Base are rare Hasbro exclusives.
While it has found use, it was disappointingly the first Dranzer Blade Base aside from the questionably included Frostic Dranzer not to feature a gimmick (aside from those inherent to the Engine Gear System - and it only includes a generic engine gear in its original release as well).
Overall a good part and technically optimal, but often not worth the price.
Lacking the gimmicks of its predecessors, and with an AR that would look more at home on a Trygle-family Beyblade (while not being nearly as effective), Dranzer G isn't much of a Dranzer, however the Blade Base being a technical best (if somewhat poor value) does mean it is more useful than Dranzer Auto Change Balancer. While the Blade Base is a great part, the severe Kai Tax on this Beyblade combined with the relatively mediocre other parts makes it a questionable purchase unless one should find it uncharacteristically cheap.
