Draciel G

  • AKA: Draciel Gravity (Full Name)

Attack Ring: Shield Hammer

Weight: 6.3g

    • Large, relatively heavy Attack Ring

    • Too recoil prone for Defense yet not aggressive enough for Attack

    • Main use is as a very outclassed Smash Attack AR, but the contact points are poorly angled and largely ineffectual.

    • It is also the best main-line Draciel AR for Weight Based Defense, the general idea of early Draciels (I don't think even Takara know what the general idea of later Draciels is), but only because the others are abysmal - it still suffers from severe recoil issues which greatly limit its Defensive ability. Even here it is heavily outclassed by the likes of Smash Turtle and Mirage Goddess.

Weight Disk: Ten Wide

Weight: 14.0g (Takara/Hasbro) | 14.3g (SonoKong G-Blade)

  • Moderately light weight

  • Outward weight distribution, though less so than Wide Defense and Wide Survivor.

  • Recoil means it is far less effective for spin stealing and survival than those weight disks

  • Still has plenty of use for Smash Attack, particularly with Attack Rings which are obstructed by Wide Defense.

  • Can still be used for spin stealing to decent effect with parts that compensate through LAD (Spiral Change Base/Full Auto Clutch Base etc) or by providing a buffer (Dragon Saucer SAR), but is still outclassed.

  • A number of SonoKong Ten Wide WD's from their G-Blade series have been recorded as being slightly above the average weight of Wide Defense, see the Ten Wide page for details.

Weight: 11.5g

    • Engine Gear does nothing of any use, at high RPM it just causes slightly more aggressive movement, at low RPM it causes instability.

    • While remarkably heavy - heavier than a Heavy Metal Core in Neo Casings, it is let down by Base availability and tip shape.

    • The Metal Ball tip and its surrounds skip over the Tornado Ridge very easily, giving it poor defense and recoil control.

    • Stability is too poor for Stamina (not to mention being heavy and centrally-distributed) and not mobile enough for Attack.

    • Not a useful part.

Weight: 7.3g

    • Two tiny metal balls in the clutch tabs do relatively little to add to weight or defensive ability.

    • In fact, Final Clutch base (Draciel G Version) is actually the lightest Final Clutch Base (the heaviest being Final Clutch Base (Dranzer G Version))

    • Final Clutch does occasionally cause a late battle offensive push with flat tips, but generally the Beyblade is too low on rotational energy at this point to do anything of note, and with ARs that might help this such as Square Edge not being effective on such tall setups, this is generally ineffectual.

    • Nonetheless, this does make them more effective than First Clutch Bases. However, Normal Bases tend to be better simply for being less bulky, even though they generally don't make use of the Engine Gear mechanic.

    • Usable for Circle Survivor Defense, however Normal Base (Wolborg 4 Version), Normal Base (Rock Bison Version) and Final Clutch Base (Desert Sphinxer Version) all work better, all having lower recoil, and the latter being heavier. It is nonetheless the next best choice and the only other truly viably option.

    • Limited LAD with a poor weight distribution means that it isn't useful with other combinations.

    • Generally not useful.


  • With the very common Weight Disk being the only really useful part, Draciel G is for collection only.
