Trypio



Attack Ring: Flying Defense

Weight: 6.2g

    • Hasbro and Takara's versions of this part differ greatly, likely due to Hasbro distributing the product in areas considered more litigious than Takara.

    • Takara version has a flying gimmick when launched from an upside down launcher.

  • Airflow creates down force in Right Spin, lift in Left Spin

  • This seems to make the AR very unstable in either direction, rather than the intended stability gain in Right

  • In left spin the lift and air resistance causes incredibly poor stamina

  • Protrusions along the end create some recoil, including below the AR, meaning it lacks the niche use of Flying Defense (Hasbro).

  • Easily destabilised by opposing Beyblades as its size and light weight give them huge amounts of leverage.

  • No competitive use and quite possibly the worst AR in plastics, being even worse than its Hasbro counterpart.

Weight Disk: Eight Heavy

Weight (Regular Mold): 15.3g
Weight (Indent Mold): 15.5g

  • Generally outclassed by Ten Heavy for all purposes, being suited to the exact same combinations but being lighter. Heavy Attack is also superior on combinations which protect it from contact.

  • Eight Heavy can successfully be used in Compact Customizations, being slightly heavier on average than Heavy, with slightly lower WD recoil, however Ten Heavy is still a superior choice.

  • Takara and Sono Kong Eight Heavy Weight Disks have a shallow indentation on one side around the centre of the Weight Disk, as well as sharper edges. There is only a minor weight difference between the Takara and Hasbro molds and as such they perform practically identically, though SonoKong WD's are lighter due to smaller size (which also means they don't fit well on standard SGs). Takara may have used the Hasbro mold in later production, particularly once production moved to China.

  • Fairly competitive in Compacts and Traditional Upper Attack and a backup choice for Weight Defense, Semi Flat Base Stamina Combos and Force Smash. Usable for Driger V2 Combos but aside from the Driger V2 (Hasbro Magnacore Version) the stock Weight Disk is outright superior.

Spin Gear: Right Spin Gear

Spin Gear Shells: Right Spin Gear Shells

Weight: 1.1g each (Shells) + 1.12g (Metal Weight Gear) (Optional)

  • Standard SG System Shells.

  • Incompatible with Neo Cores, and thus certain MagneSystem Blade Bases, though Wyborg's SG (Auto Change Version) SG Core Part can be used to allow use with some.`

  • Generally Neo Shells are preferred for their greater compatibility, mostly their ability to use Neo Cores. For Right Spin, this is particularly relevant with the Heavy Metal Core.

  • Generally uses a Metal Weight Gear with all compatible SG Cores. This gear helps reduce wobbling/rattling and adds a small amount of weight. It does not, however, work as a gear in any capacity.

  • Nonetheless, per BBA Survivor, BBA Attacker, BBA Defenser and BBA Balancer having Regular SGs but no Metal Weight Gear, it is not required for legality.

  • This allows Right Spin Gear Shells to produce the lightest SG setup in the game when using SG (Auto Change Version) and no metal Weight Gear.

Spin Gear Core: Regular SG Core Part

Note: The correct name for this part is "Gear" however this name is commonly used to avoid confusion with the Metal Weight Gear in standard SGs.

Weight: 0.61g

  • Small core part to fit into the Base and be clipped to by the Base Clips, holding the Beyblade together. Also used as a ripcord gear by Bearing Gyros Beyblades.

  • The plastic part is the second lightest of all Core parts, being just slightly heavier than Wyborg's SG (Auto Change Version) core part.

  • Incompatible with certain MagneSystem Blade Bases as the tip shafts are too wide for the hole in its base.

  • With Neo SG Shells, it creates one of the lightest setups, making for what is theoretically the best SG for most attack types not requiring a Neo core or their own shafts, though the difference is generally theoretical only, due to the minimal weight difference, and often going heavier is better for rotational recoil control.

  • Useful for completely optimizing a Spiral Change Base zombie (which are the only competitive stamina types that do not require a gimmicked SG), as cores are not useful for recoil control due to its low friction and the lighter weight in the centre slightly improves survival. Technically SG (Auto Change Version) may be superior as it does fit, but the difference is likely to be too small to measure.

Blade Base: SG Sharp Base

Weight: 6.6g

  • SG version of Sharp Base.

  • Tall base, with sharp tip.

  • Two molds, albeit only minor differences, with the second having smaller tip retention pieces and a reinforced rim in the underside groove.

  • Incredibly poor stability resulting in poor longevity against all opponents

  • Niche use in Defense combinations aiming to maintain high RPM, but Weight Based Defense and Compacts both do this better, and in any case there are better alternatives, such as Customize Metal Sharp Base. This may nonetheless be the closest thing this Blade Base has to usefulness and one of the only historical uses for it.

  • Outclassed for everything, generally severely so.

Overall

  • With no useful parts aside from a decent if outclassed Weight Disk, both versions of Trypio are only worthwhile for collection and fun purposes. This version, at least, has the flying gimmick which was the entire point of the Beyblade, at the cost of being technically worse than the Hasbro version.
