Alright guys over the months I have seen countless catapult designs each with their perks and then theres some that are just plain disappointing. Theres the forward catapult, backward catapult, the full arm catapult, forward intake catapult, backwards intake catapult. There are several more I dont remember at the moment. Which catapult do you guys believe is best and why?

This construction kit challenges you to not only Build Genius, but also build a fully functional VEX Robotic Catapult at the same time! Explore the technology behind some of the most influential inventions of our culture's Age of Innovation! Inspired by ancient Greek and Roman designs, this modern Catapult has a ratcheting winch that can control the distance projectiles are thrown. Crank the winch to its maximum tension, and you can hurl balls over 10 feet! HEXBUG believes in using the fun of robotic toys to teach kids important STEM principles through hands on learning.The VEX Robotics Catapult feature two alternate builds for more robotic fun! All Catapult's construction pieces are compatible with educational VEX IQ pieces to create your own custom VEX robot and explore unlimited possibilities. Two balls included. Batteries not required. VEX Robotics Catapult is compliant with CPSIA standards.  Caution: Do not aim at eyes or face. To Avoid Injury: Use only projectiles designed for this product. Do not modify projectiles or projectile launcher.

In addition if someone has a 4/4/2 (four motor drive, four lift, two intake) setup then having 4 tanks on your robot for a backwards catapult is a lot of weight. The tanks aren't light so keeping your robot as lightweight as possible with only four motors on drive is essential. But then again team 1103 in Round Up had a rock solid robot that weighed nearly 20 lbs. (I believe he said this in a video somewhere, don't quote me on it) and had only 4 high speed motors on his drive. Very impressive!
