Viper @ SFMM

I'm hoping someone can help me with a Viper dispute I'm having with a friend.  What exactly is the 4th/5th inversion called?

Arrow Dynamics refers to it as a Boomerang.  B&M refers to it as a Batwing.  My sister refers to it as a Butterfly.

Arrow calls this a Boomerang and Bowtie I think. Go with Boomerang, the whole explination is," You go back the way you Came"

So what is better? SFMM or CP? I don't care! They both have 29 coasters between them that they build so we can have a good time!

I would say..................Boomerang!

Due to fact that it is made by Arrow.

I always thought of it as a pretzel.  This isn't really correct, but thats how I thought of it.

I dont consider it a boomerang, because all boomerang coasters contain a cobra roll inversion. But Arrow refers to it as a boomerang. I myself always called it a butterfly or pretzel loop, because that's what it more closely resembles. No real FACTUAL answer here.

Arrow does call it boomerang.  The Arrow bowtie exits opposite the way it came.

ApolloAndy: No, No, you've got it backwards. The bowtie exits in the same direction it enters, the boomerang does the opptisite.

The only Arrow Bowtie is on Dragon Mountain. It's the same thing as the arrow boomerang except it exits on the opposite side (going the same direction).  The arrow boomerang is much more common.
