Cyber Dragoon Battle Spec.
Coro-Coro exclusive Cyber Dragoon recolor with Eight Wide, Neo Right SG (Metal Weight Version) and Gabriel's SG Wing Base.
Attack Ring: Cybernetic Dragon
Large, wide attack ring with very aggressive design, large flat faces as contact points.
Incredibly recoil laden in both directions, even with SG Grip Change Base Tip or Defense Grip Base (Tip inverted). It can even bend itself backwards over the SG from hard collisions (and even when it doesn't, the threading shows stress quite quickly with serious use), due to the immense amount of rotational recoil it suffers from.
Relatively powerful in both spin directions (less so in left), but not quite enough to be worth using given the recoil, though it does come close to being competitive in Right Spin.
If using as a Right Spin Attack AR, benefits greatly from a Heavy Metal Core, which makes it competitively viable.
Overall outclassed by better options such as Square Edge, Mountain Hammer and Mirage Goddess.
Weight Disk: Eight Wide
Weight (Hard Edge Mold): 12.7g
Weight (Soft Edge Mold): 12.2g
Very light weight
Two molds, one with sharper edges used exclusively by Takara, and one with softer edges used by both Hasbro and Takara (after production moved to China, presumably). The Hard Edge mold tends to be heavier on average but there is huge crossover between them and the difference can largely be considered negligible. The soft edge mold also often has bumps, generally smaller than those on Ten-Series Weight Disks, at one or both ends, which theoretically could make for poorer balance, though the impact is negligible.
Wide weight distribution, albeit less so than Ten Wide, Wide Defense and Wide Survivor.
Minor use with Attack AR's whose contact points are obscured by wider weight disks (eg Double Wing), though these limitations inherently render them inferior to many other options, and overall the lighter weight of Eight Wide leaves it outclassed.
Spin Gear: Neo Right Spin Gear (Metal Weight Version)
Spin Gear Shells: Neo Right Spin Gear Shells
Weight: 1.15g ea (total 2.3g)
Generally preferred to regular Right shells due to being compatible with all SG-Compatible bases, in particular for being compatible with Neo SG Cores and the Heavy Metal Core.
This means they are a necessity for Compacts, Weight Based Defense, Force Smash, Traditional Upper Attack and Driger V2 Combinations, at least aside from the rare occasions Left Spin is desired for one of these types, in which case Neo Left Shells are preferred.
Overall a crucial competitive part, but thankfully exceedingly common.
Spin Gear Core: Metal Weight Core
Only compatible with Neo Shells.
Has a cylindrical metal part in the centre to add weight
Slightly lighter than Magnecores, which limits its usefulness, even for Attack Types where the small difference between it and other cores in terms of weight means it generally fails to find a niche, or at least fails to stand out as significantly better in most cases.
This does not mean it is outclassed for all setups, however, odds are it provides the right mix of recoil control and speed for some setups, it is just that the difference it would be best by would inevitably be quite small.
Does still work well for Attack Types in general, despite usually being outperformed by other options the difference is quite minimal.
Blade Base: SG Wing Base
RELEVANT WORLD BEYBLADE ORGANIZATION RULING: The combination of Screw Zeus on SG Free Wing Base with Weight Disks that visibly do not fit and cause the parts to bend from their original shape or do not sit level with each other is forbidden.
Weight: 5.9g (without Sub-Ring)
SG Wing Base is unique in being a Blade Base which is able to accept Sub Attack Rings. The stock Sub-Ring is Wing Sub-Ring. The use of a Sub-Ring is required for legality.
Able to use any Sub AR, though some (most notably Screw Zeus) will only fit legally with certain Weight Disks.
Has modified Base Clips to do so, and these must be used with the Base at all times.
Uses Gaia Dragoon's Tip (and Sub Ring by default) - it comes with the same secondary Runner Frame, these are made of a softer, more flexible plastic than the rest of the Beyblade.
Has decent LAD with smaller Sub Rings such as War Lion Sub AR, however the large Base Clips scrape badly, reducing this significantly, and unlike all other Bases these cannot be swapped out for a less pronounced alternative.
Wider Sub Rings (including Wing) tend to scrape early resulting in poor performance.
Tip provides controllable movement with a good mix of aggression and stillness, however it fails to excel in either area. It is made of the same slightly softer material as the "Wing" SAR, and overall lacks somewhat in the stamina department.
Would be a decent Base for Compacts when used with War Lion Sub AR were it not for its scraping issues and mediocre stamina, which relegate it to tier 2.
It is legal to invert the tip, though this has negligible utility.
Sub Ring: "Wing" Sub-Ring
Note: Name comes from instructions for Gabriel, and is rather unusually formatted so it may be a descriptor rather than an official name for the part. Gaia Dragoon was the first release, however as Sub Attack Rings generally don't have an individual name (in fact, as evidenced by Great Tiger compared to War Lion, they can alter the overall name for the part), this is the closest thing to an official name the part has (other Sub Attack Ring names are based on the Attack Ring's names, however Wing uniquely appears in multiple).
Softer, more flexible plastic than usual for Beyblade.
Achieves the impressive feat of having fairly severe recoil problems despite being free spinning as it is easily used as a lever by opponents hitting from above/below, which is very common due to stadium slopes and the width of the part.
Cannot be fixed in place, tests using illegal methods to do so have found no point in doing so anyway, due to recoil and lack of power. War Bear SAR is far superior.
100% style, 0% substance: it's a terrible part - it is truly horrible, and only useful if you really, really want to lose.
Worth noting it is different to Great Tiger's Sub-AR, being thicker and slightly differently angled. See below for pictures.
The worse Blade Base than the original Cyber Dragoon, baffling inclusion of a dated Eight-Series Weight Disk, the rarity of the Beyblade, and lack of any truly top tier parts mean Cyber Dragoon Battle Spec is best kept for its value as a collector's piece. SG Wing Base is kind of cool, but Gabriel is a much better Beyblade.
