Super B-Daman Spread Wyvern

This is the main rival to Combat Phoenix and like the later B-Daman series that came afterward, the main rival character usually specialises in rapid-fire. Here, a one-handed trigger and the Spread Wings which allow power shots to be toggled on or off allows for one-handed operation so you can load marbles with one hand as you fire with the other.

It also has a Perfect Mode which requires the Short Stroke System, replacing both the stock core and trigger.

Contents. As usual, the EX Frame takes up one runner.

Assembly revolves around the generic EX Frame.

The Spread Wings have detents to keep them in the closed or open positions.

The arms are bolted onto the frame with screws.

The EX Core uses a Double Hold System (WHS) which supposedly increases power and accuracy. It seems to be a downgrade from its predecessor Valiant Wyvern which has four Shooting Rollers mounted inside the hold parts though. The hold parts are only anchored at the bottom so they wobble loosely.

The EX One Hand Trigger simply adds a pair of wings to allow for one handed operation.

Nothing special going on with the feet.

The toy is almost totally black without stickers.

With stickers applied. I forgot to stick one that goes on the EX Core/chest.

The EX Core has protrusions on the sides of the hold parts which press against the Spread Wings in open mode to restrict the amount of flex and build up more tension. This allows you to fire power shots with one hand compared to conventional power type toys which require the use of both hands to achieve a power shot.

Rear view. The arms have hard points for mounting the Mega Cannon Wing but I have no idea if doing so provides any additional benefit compared to using the default Spread Wings.

I’m not sure whether it’s a problem with my copy but my toy fires marbles off to one side and the problem is more apparent in power mode.
