    Gear 2 vs. Gear 3

    so
    Gear 2 - upgrade of speed, strength - so the imapct is probably similiar to a normal attack but the speed make it possible to land lots of hits for a small amount of time

    Gear 3 - upgrade of size hence might - it could be quite destructive for static objects

    and my opinion is that Gear 2 is way better cause with Gear 3 the bigger size is more difficult to control, easier to avoid cause the resulted attack is slower than an usual attack. also gear 3 has a side effect - chibi mode

    Gear 2 make luffy tired quickly and shotening his lifespan i wont say gear 2 way better since luffy can only use it in small period of time.
    and for the gear3 luffy put air into his bone to make the bone bigger thats its strong

    Gear 3 seems to be a killing strike. It's like comparing kaioken to kamehameha in fact lol.

    ok but he said that Gear 2 evolves all his moves a step and it did but gear 3 increases power but lacks speed so it didn't increase the moves yet another step - it made them more destructive but not better

    lucchi says in chapter 422 (sumari and pics) that gear 3 is not better than gear 2.
    luffy gets stronger , but he's way slower , and he can't react to lucci's hits....

    Maybe we will see one day a gear 3 in gear 2 mode, since they don't seem to negate themselves...

    If Gear 3 was that slow, Lucci would have dodged it

    lucci didnt dodge gear 3 he took it head on, he thought it wasnt gonna be that powerful, plus i think that gear 3 could be more powerful cause luffy stayed a long time on gear 2 he might have gotten tired, imagine if he had went straight from gear 1 to gear 3, he probably woulda had more speed or he woulda been better energized

    well, now we know why he got that small when he smashed that door two chapters ago.... he destroyed the door with gear 3 and so he hadn't any air inside his bones so he was .....tiny so this shows us that gear 3 is a one shot move..... damn, this sucks a little bit don't you think?

    Re: Gear 2 vs. Gear 3 (latest chapters) - possible spoilers

    well that last chapter added some important details
    the fact that luffy can freely transfer the air inside his bones make the techique quite versatile... but then comes the ages-old question: does size matter?
    a fusion between gear2&gear3 would be best but is it possible - it'll mean that in order to circulate faster his blood has to travel quite a long distance in his gigantic-bodyparts form

    and yes - gear3 could get rid of the whole buster call in a minute but if it is against a single person - it's unreasonably destructive - i mean he destroyed the whole building where the fight begun just to punch a single lucci-bastard... come-on... its visualy nice for a bad guy to get smashed and thing but... anyways i still like gear 2 best - it's way more elegant

    I don't think he can fuse Gear 2 and 3 logically.. Gear 2 increases blood flow thus his body would get tighter as if you have just finished a workout and all your muscles are pumped. Gear 3 pumps his bones which I assume he'd need his muscles to be relaxed to accomplish.. I dunno though I'm sure if Oda wants to he could work it out, but I'd rather that Gear 2 and 3 stay seperate and Luffy just learn how to use each of the 3 gears in different situations.

    Maybe, this is a stupid question, but: How can Luffy inflate his body/bones (I'm not sure)?

    Unconsciousness is my destiny, my joy but also my desperation.

    His whole body is made of rubber, as simple as that.

    Gear 2 is better for the reason that it's faster. In other words, as the speed increases so does the power. The faster luffy's hits are, the more strong they are (To prove it, try throwing 2 rocks on something at a different speed, the rock which made most of the damage to that thing/made most of the sound when it hit was obviously thrown faster :P)
    . Gear 3 is just a pump of luffy's bones to get him the giant's strength, but actually he is slower because of the fact that his muscles aren't strong enough to lift such heavy bones.
    So if you do math, Speed + Power > Power. :P
