Default Brilliant Bowmaker vs Gator Bite?

I've read most people love the Gator Bite & I have seen a picture so I kind of have an idea how it works, but what about the new Brilliant Bowmaker? I can't seem to find a picture of it, only the bows it can produce. Can anyone post a picture of it & leave a review of it vs the Gator bite? Thank you..

I can't post a picture but I have the bowmaker. It is completely different than the gator bite. I actually use the BBM & then the gator bite too for my bows. It is really cool as my bows come out the same exact size each time & they actually look identical too.

BBM is a tool to help you format/construct (form the loops) a basic bow the gator bite is a tool you use after you have the format to securely hold the bow in place while you tie off the bow. ITMS

The BBM instructions actually show you how to use the gator bite w/ the bowmaker

I don't have a picture of it but if you look in Little Pink Ladybug's etsy store (Etsy :: Your place to buy and sell all things handmade, seller name = littlepinkladybug33) you will see it in her ad for the item. They are the white shapes under the lettering in her first picture. The bowmaker and gator bite perform different functions - the bowmaker helps you get the loops even & well formed and gives recommendations for tying/creasing (but that is done OFF the bowmaker). The gator bite only helps with making the crease & tying the center after you have shaped the bow. I have the bowmaker (and I think it's great) but do not have the gator bite (other methods of tying & creasing work fine for me).

I just got my gator bite a few days ago, and I have to say it is the best bow making investment I have ever make.
