Description: The original Left-Spin counterpart to the EZShooter. This launcher's bulk comes from using two additional gears with an additional layer of structure to allow for left spin without inverting the ripcord. This means more moving parts to break, and a particular issue that quickly develops where the launcher does not stop immediately as the winder exits but spins a little longer, making attack launching somewhat more awkward. As such, usually the later Neo Reverse Shooter is preferred.

Variants: There are a number of variations, shown below. The first is the "No Guard" version which lacks a finger rest from various early releases. The second is the earlier but less common Japan-made version with sharp prongs, which has sharper edges and more defined moulding, but performs the same (with possible risk of fragility on some colours like many Japanese plastic colours of the era). There is a second Japan-made version with softer edged prongs but the same overall sharp moulding.

The main version is the China version released by both Hasbro and Takara, which has more rounded prongs and will be the most familiar to the average blader.

One additional version exists with more notable differences. The SonoKong TopBlade (pre-GRev) version, 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.

All versions have the same overall power.

In later releases starting with V-Force's Dragoon V, this launcher was replaced by the somewhat simplified Neo Reverse Shooter.
