Drachen Fire's cutback:

Outlaw's thingamabob:

They look pretty durn similar to me! It is hard to tell from the angle of the two photos, but the entry and exit angle into the inversion looks much flatter on Outlaw.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

At best, that's totally still an inversion. At worst, it's a Stengel Dive on likely par with Maverick's.

I don't think either option is particularly bad!
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

Parks: 51

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

So, if this isn't a cutback what do we call it? A super stengel? Stengels don't normally fully invert.

I've gone pantless!

This is turning into the coaster-enthusiast version of "Tastes great! Less filling!"

This is probably the most surprising coaster I have ever seen! I don't even know what's next. I have a feeling that this is going to be one of the most intense wooden coaster!

If it is a Stengel Dive, a super dooper one, I think it's great.

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

I think it's called a hill with a lot of banking (close to 180*) applied to it. Think of the high five element but extremely banked.
