If you really want to run equip, go with Grarl. It allows you to softlock your opponents monsters after kuriboh, econ, and windstorm while really stong vs Guardian Statue.dek
The fact that this card replaces itself when destroyed isnt really a good argument since if you do lose the equip, you'll probably going to lose your monster as well and are losing anyway. Which is why less people run equips
In the current meta, this is better than grarl and big bang shot, due to the high presence of HHG decks
Welp, this is infinitely better than any other equip except for the situational uses of Grarl combos + Windstorm of Etaqua. It replaces itself when destroyed by Harpies, Storm, Wild Tornado or Twister so it's plenty good.
