Driger G (Hasbro Metallic Black Ver.)

  • AKA: Driger Gatling (Full Name)

  • Hasbro late G-Revolution recolour of Driger G with a Customize Engine Gear and CEW instead of a standard EG.

Attack Ring: Triple Tiger

Weight: 6.3g

Right Spin:

    • Solid Smash Attack, less recoil than the size of its contact points suggest due to the fact they perfectly follow the beyblade's rotation (putting all of the Beyblade's force behind each hit), having roughly the same amount of recoil as Triple Wing.

    • Decent Upper Attack and Upward Smash, which can help make opponents more vulnerable to its smash attack.

    • Overhanging design means it is a good choice to compensate for tall bases like Customize Grip Base and Defense Grip Base (Attack Mode), making much more versatile combinations. This comes at the direct cost of general ineffectiveness against Circle Survivor Defense, however.

    • Generally appears to prefer high speed over more weight and is therefore one of the rare situations where Wide Survivor may be a better choice than Wide Defense as the Weight Disk.

    • Overall a fantastic Smash Attack and Traditional Upper Attack AR in this direction.

Left Spin:

    • Thick, pointed edges behind the heads provide main contact points.

    • Very recoil prone, but once controlled it is very powerful.

    • A very effective Smash Attack AR in this direction, though falling under the Hyper Aggressive category requiring strong recoil control.

    • Can suffer a bit against lower opponents due to the sloped underside.

Weight Disk: Ten Balance

Weight: 15.0g

  • Decent weight, with a compact yet edge-focussed distribution which makes for good all-around performance.

  • Thanks to the additional weight, the weight distribution provides a good mix of RPM maintenance/grinding and overall survival ability.

  • Generally outclassed by Wide Defense unless a more compact weight distribution is required. This is most noticeable in Compacts and Semi-Flat Base Stamina, where the compact weight distribution helps their stability and grinding ability while providing a little extra survival over mode compact options. However for compacts, the greater weight of Ten Heavy is generally preferred.

  • Overall a good part.

  • SonoKong G-Blade Mold (as opposed to their earlier mold) is generally very similar to the regular mold, meaning it can be used interchangeably.

Weight: 6.7g

    • A regular right-spin Engine Gear that uses Customize Engine Weights

    • The engine gear gimmick does very little of use - if it activates early it breaks flower pattern and sometimes self-KO's, if it activates late it causes major instability in most cases, and in the case of Attack Types where it can cause a late game burst of movement (albeit usually an ineffectual one), it lacks a suitable tip to work with.

    • You're usually better off not winding the SG, rendering it an excessively tall combo, prone to attacks from lower attackers and struggling to hit anything without using an overhanging AR such as Triple Tiger.

    • Sadly, the only rubber tipped CEW, Metal Grip, is quite slow without the speed of Left Engine Gear (Turbo), and the only Engine Gear tip that was actually decent for Attack, Right Engine Gear (Metal Flat), was never made into a CEW, rendering any offensive usage moot.

Weight: 7.3g

    • First Clutch activates at start of battle. Slightly less self-destructive than Final Clutch because the Beyblade resists the destabilization caused by the Engine Gear's activation, instead it breaks flower pattern and sometimes self KO's.

  • Does not have the recoil issues of many EG Blade Bases due to lacking protrusions, though this also means it cannot compensate for the height of the Engine Gear for offensive Setups.

  • LAD is acceptable for an EG Blade Base but still not particularly good.

  • The only worthwhile CEW Parts are better served by a number of other bases - generally Normal Base (Wolborg 4 Version) and Normal Base (Rock Bison Version), as these are more compact, lighter (though this is one of the lighter EG Bases with a clutch), and allow for better LAD.

  • As such, serves little use, but still one of the better First Clutch Bases.

Customize Engine Weight: Metal Semi-Flat

Weight: 3.6g

    • Slightly more of a Semi-Flat tip than the Engine Gear tip it is based on, as it actually has bevelled edges

    • Too aggressive for survival customs and not able to take hits well enough for defensive ones.

    • The fact Engine Gears are so tall, combined with the poor grip and limited speed and aggression of the tip limits usefulness for Attack type customisations.

    • Overall, not a useful part.


  • With an excellent Attack Ring, competitive Weight Disk, and decent uncustomized performance due to the Attack Ring compensating for the height of the Engine Gear setup, Driger G is an excellent Beyblade, albeit not a must-have. The Customize Engine Gear is generally more useful than the standard EG used in the original, but neither is a competitively relevant part and this version is much less common.
