Attack Ring: Penta Wing
Five-sided AR with relatively aggressive design, slopes facing each direction.
Notable for being the only AR that lines up with Star Attack in any reasonable way.
Lack of range, obstruction and inward angle of contact points results in unimpressive Smash Attack
Too much recoil for Defensive or Stamina use
Penta Wing's Upper Attack in this direction is largely limited to destabilization, thus not worth using.
Solid Upper Attack in this direction due to the reasonably long slopes on each wing.
Moderate but not excessive recoil.
These attributes make Penta Wing a viable, if very offense-focussed Attack Ring for Spin-Stealing Attack. Its recoil does cause it to lose match-ups, particularly same-spin, where Upper Dragoon might win by outspin, but the increased offensive ability makes it reliable in other match ups.
Slopes make it effective as a Left Spin Traditional Upper Attack AR, and it is a very compelling choice for this - which also makes Star Attack a viable competitive part just for this reason.
Overall while there are many alternatives, Penta Wing is quite unique and effective.
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 Customize Engine Gear
A regular right-spin Engine Gear that uses Customize Engine Weights
The engine gear gimmick does very little of use - if it activates early it breaks flower pattern and sometimes self-KO's, if it activates late it causes major instability in most cases, and in the case of Attack Types where it can cause a late game burst of movement (albeit usually an ineffectual one), it lacks a suitable tip to work with.
You're usually better off not winding the SG, rendering it an excessively tall combo, prone to attacks from lower attackers and struggling to hit anything without using an overhanging AR such as Triple Tiger.
Sadly, the only rubber tipped CEW, Metal Grip, is quite slow without the speed of Left Engine Gear (Turbo), and the only Engine Gear tip that was actually decent for Attack, Right Engine Gear (Metal Flat), was never made into a CEW, rendering any offensive usage moot.
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.
Customize Engine Weight: Metal Semi-Flat
Slightly more of a Semi-Flat tip than the Engine Gear tip it is based on, as it actually has bevelled edges
Too aggressive for survival customs and not able to take hits well enough for defensive ones.
The fact Engine Gears are so tall, combined with the poor grip and limited speed and aggression of the tip limits usefulness for Attack type customisations.
Overall, not a useful part.
While it has a unique and rather effective Attack Ring in Penta Wing and a decent if poor value Blade Base, Rapid Eagle G fails to make quite enough impact for how rare and expensive it is. As such, while it is a nice addition to ones collection, it is by no means a must-have.
