Trypio (Hasbro)

  • Hasbro modified version of Trypio with the flying gimmick removed (given there were similar issues with other flying toys at the time, this was presumably for legal reasons, but largely defeats the purpose of the release.


Weight: 7.8g

    • Hasbro version of this part differs greatly from Takara's, likely due to Hasbro distributing the product in areas considered more litigious than Takara.

    • Hasbro version has a thick, circular outer ring and the aerofoils are replaced with flat blades.

  • The thick, perfectly round perimeter causes some spin equalisation with opposing Beyblades, but interference with LAD on short bases and easy destabilisation on tall ones means it is pretty much always outspun if used for this.

  • The greater weight around the edge than the Takara version does make it better for pushing things around the stadium, albeit only marginally.

  • Has very niche use as a counter to certain Circle Survivor Defense combinations (primarily more defensive ones using thicker ARs such as Roller Defense Ring), when using Circle Defenser and a Final Clutch Base it allows for consistent wins via KO and OS thanks to interference with its spin and Circle Defenser preventing scraping. However, it loses against just about everything else, including other Circle Survivor configurations, thus is little more than a novelty. This is still one (1) more use than the Takara version, though.

  • Round perimeter has no Smash so it only shoves things around using its size and weight distribution.

  • Overall useless however not quite as awful as the Takara version.

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, however the Hasbro version, while less fun, is technically marginally better competitively and rather entertaining in combination with Gyro Engine Gear.
