Description: The second Left-Spin counterpart to the EZShooter. This launcher removes the bulk of the original Reverse Shooter by simply using a mirrored configuration, inverting the ripcord. To offset this they come with Neo Dragon Winders or Reverse Dragon Winders so the winder handles do not look upside-down. This more compact size and simpler mechanism generally makes them more reliable and preferred compared to the earlier counterpart.
Variants: The most common version is the Made in China version released by both Hasbro and Takara.
Three additional versions exist with more notable differences.
The SonoKong TopBlade (pre-GRev) version from their V-Force era releases is slightly smaller to match the smaller size of these releases. This provides tighter prongs which can be a good or a bad thing depending on the Beyblade attached. It also has a shorter finger rest.
The SonoKong GBlade version also has tighter prongs and a shorter finger rest, as well as stylized "G" molding.
The third is the launcher released with MFB Electronic Tops Beyblades (specifically Lightning L-Drago) years later, which is simply an Neo Reverse Shooter with an additional cylinder molded in the centre of the prong section which acts as a spacer to prevent over-insertion. This can be good for spacing Beyblades on the launcher better, but could potentially cause Bit Sticker wear.
All versions have the same overall power.
Made in China
These are quite uncommon, but they are generally identical to the GBlade version except for a different copyright year and no "G" emblazoning on the prong base. If you have one, please get in touch via the Contact Me! Page
