Attack Ring: Reverse Dragon
Weight: 3.5g (Takara) | 4.0g (Hasbro)
Left Spin Smash AR
Once the recoil is controlled, Reverse Dragon is surprisingly powerful, however it suffers from its limited range, leaving it short of being truly competitive.
It is important to note that it does suffer from breakage issues due to the lack of reinforcements to the main contact points.
Nonetheless, it is a viable choice in Left Spin with the right parts.
In Right it has little power and still suffers from recoil, meaning it has little use in this direction.
Notable Mold Differences:
The Hasbro version of this part is significantly thicker than the Takara version to reduce breakage (though it still breaks somewhat often), adding some weight but having fairly minimal performance impact.
There is a second, even more reinforced mold from Hasbro which fills in most of the area behind the spikes with a thin layer of plastic. While this largely negates breakage issues, the overall performance impact is likely minimal.
