It does, but it's well past the minimum recharge time now, since it's been almost an entire day since he last used itI'm not really keeping up with the manga or anything so I wouldn't know what's going on but doesn't Gear 4th have a recharge time or something?
He would've already known how strong Katakuri was from their first clash at the Wedding Ceremony. Had Katakuri been seriously going for the kill, Luffy would be dead by now, so there's no real reason for him to hold back his trump card, regardless of the consequences.Yeah it makes sense for Luffy to feel out his opponent before going gear 4. Gear four seems to be worse on him than gear 2 was originally. Not to mention he can't just force himself to use it when it reaches it's limit like he at enies lobby.
He's going to need something more than regular gear 4 to get out of this anyway. He barely beat Cracker with Nami's help. Katakuri is far stronger and has godlike observation haki.
Which shows how much of an idiot Luffy is and how little he's learnt from his past experiences.When has luffy ever not held back his trump cards though? He'll continually try ineffective attacks long after they're proven useless.
He countered an Elephant Gun with his own punch and gained the advantage. That should be more than enough for Luffy to know anything below G4 would be useless, especially when combined with his precog.And their brief clash at the wedding really doesn't give us any indication of how powerful he really was.
