Wolborg 03 (Uriel) - "Wolborg 03"

  • AKA: Wolborg 3 (Hasbro), Wolborg 03, Uriel, Ariel (mistranslation based on stickers) or any combination of Wolborg 03/Wolborg 3 and (Ariel)/(Uriel).

  • This page refers to the Black version of the Beyblade, generally referred to as Wolborg 03 by fans (though both it and "Wolborg 03" share the same name from Takara), which includes a Metal Weight Core as opposed to the South Magnecore of "Uriel"

  • This is also the part list used by Hasbro for Wolborg 3, though that release had a white SG Grip Base Tip.

  • Generally, the gold colour is referred to by fans as Uriel, and the Black as Wolborg 03/Wolborg 3, however both versions share the same product name from Takara, per the title of this page.

Attack Ring: Cross Horn

Note: The Gold version of this part suffers from some degree of Gold Plastic Syndrome, causing it to be fragile. While not as severe as Uriel 2, care should still be taken with usage and those worried about breaks are advised to avoid usage.

Weight: 4.3g

    • Four-winged AR with rounded heads leading in Left Spin and protrusions at wing tips leading in Right Spin

    • Well balanced, but the wing tips protruding past Weight Disks tends to reduce usefulness.

Right Spin:

  • Competent Smash Attack in this direction with limited recoil, however the range is not sufficient and the contact points lack enough focus for it to be a top-tier contender.

  • Shape makes the AR too high-recoil for Defense or Stamina in this direction.

  • An excellent choice for RC Super Flat Base (and RC Bases in general) should RC Bases become legal, with the wing tips obstructing the recoily protrusions on the fake Weight Disk and providing some smash to KO Survival types, while still providing great balance and relatively low recoil to allow outspins against popular combinations.

Left Spin:

  • Smooth shape of the heads provide lower recoil, however the bumps at the trailing edges disrupt this, adding noticeable recoil and limiting overall efficacy.

  • As a result, it is competent but not exceptional as a Zombie AR in this direction, with the recoil making it less useful than alternatives such as Tiger Defenser, Scissor Attacker and Twin Horn.

  • Nonetheless, a solid Tier 2 choice for Zombies.

Weight Disk: Revolver Attack

Weight: 15.0g

    • Lighter than Heavy and Eight Heavy while having a similarly compact weight distribution

    • Weight distribution implies defensive use, but the recoil from the contact points and the relatively middling weight means it doesn't work well here - even Heavy Attack is a better choice on set-ups that can reduce the recoil.

    • Not a useful part.

Spin Gear: Neo Right SG (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

Weight: 2.5g

  • 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 Grip Base

Note: The Gold version of this part suffers from some degree of Gold Plastic Syndrome, causing it to be fragile. While not as severe as Uriel 2, care should still be taken with usage and those worried about breaks are advised to avoid usage.

Weight: 4.9g

    • Right-Spin mirror of Magne Flat Base.

    • Has a removable tip and can house a range of Shafts and Tips, though the only useful ones are Customize Grip Base Tip and SG Grip Change Base Tip (using SG (Bearing Version 2) Casings), with SG Grip Base Tip also being a viable option.

    • Similar to a lighter Customize Grip Base, but with no SP support- instead it has four wings which add some smash attack in Right but mostly cause recoil issues (significantly so in Left).

    • Only useful for Attack types due to this - while it can fit various Defensive and Survival shafts it has poor LAD and recoil issues making it a poor choice for these.

    • There are better choices for SG Grip Change Base's tip in SG (Bearing Version 2)'s Casings - Defense Grip Base 2, Customize Bearing Base and, on fresh tips, Customize Grip Base, but SG Grip Base is still a competitive choice.

    • Main use where it isn't outclassed is using Customize Grip Base Tip with Dranzer V's unique Magnecore, allowing the use of the tip at lower heights (see Dranzer V for more information). With other SG's it is generally just a poorer version of Customize Grip Base.

    • Nonetheless, it remains a competitive part as most of the downsides aren't important for attack-oriented Beyblades.

Weight: 2.74g

  • Relatively hard rubber tip (similar consistency to Customize Grip Base Tip) with a non-magnetic metal centre and pole extending into the SG, intended to be magnetised by the SG

  • While the tip is slightly narrower, overall performance in both aggression and stamina is similar to Customize Grip Base Tip and therefore they may be used interchangeably.

  • Much like Customize Grip Base Tip, the recoil control is lower than SG Grip Change Base Tip and Defense Grip Base, resulting in a harder time with higher recoil Attack Rings, however it is still usable.

  • Stamina allows it to outspin Grip Defense, and the height in Customize Grip Base allows certain ARs to be used to OS certain Circle Survivor Defense Combos.

  • Notably, this makes it an excellent choice for Force Smash combinations - perhaps the best due to it's ~0.9g weight advantage over Customize Grip Base Tip, which with Customize Grip Base and Defense Ring results in a BB setup just shy of the weight of a fully-loaded SG Metal Ball Base.

  • Only tip other than Volcano Change Base Tip to be compatible with Volcano Change Base. While this is niche (and the legality still unclear), it does allow the use of the Tip with Dranzer V's unique Magnecore without an aggressively designed Base. resulting in a lower overall height than Customize Grip Base. This works well with powerful but lower recoil Smash Attack ARs such as Mountain Hammer.

  • Overall a competitive Attack Tip though it is worth noting that it is best used in Customize Grip Base which already comes with a generally equally effective Tip.


  • Wolborg 03 (Uriel) has a range of decent parts, including an excellent tip, but for the most part there are better alternatives, or alternatives that come with parts needed to use them in the case of the tip. As such, it is best left for collection purposes. The black version of the Beyblade, including Hasbro's Wolborg 3 release, is generally superior to the more common Gold variant due to not suffering from the same level of fragility.
