Wolborg (Hasbro)

  • AKA: Wolf (Stickers), Haswolf (Fan), Hasborg (Fan), Pissborg (Phantom Force Version)

  • Note: Performance of Bearing-compatible parts assumes Shielded Metal Ball Bearings are used in all available positions.

  • Hasbro's version of Wolborg with Modified Attack Ring and SG Shaft Tip.

Weight: 3.8g

  • Small, mostly round-edged 4-sided AR with contact points facing counter-clockwise, with an even, compact perimeter allowing for excellent spin stealing and defensive properties - perhaps the single best change Hasbro have made to a part, yet somehow not the one that the community focussed on in this release.

Right Spin:

  • While higher recoil than left spin, the smooth perimeter and compact size match excellently with Wide Survivor and Wide Defense, and combined with a well-balanced distribution make for an effective spin-stealing part in this direction.

  • The wolf heads do still suffer some recoil, making use for defense and compacts which use Ten Heavy in this direction riskier, but it remains a competitively viable option with some offensive power, sitting around the low to middle of the top tier of choices.

  • Overall similar performance to Tiger Defenser in Left Spin, albeit with slightly worse weight distribution and therefore slightly worse stamina.

Left Spin:

  • Compact with decently angled low-ish recoil contact points in this direction

  • Lower recoil in this direction makes it an excellent choice for Zombies (especially more aggressive variants), Defensive Zombies, Compacts, Grip and Weight Defense, though the somewhat fragile design is worth being wary of, this can mostly be compensated for with Wide Defense or Wide Survivor.

  • Overall similar performance to Tiger Defenser in Right Spin, albeit with slightly worse weight distribution and therefore slightly worse stamina.

  • Notable for being the only viable Compact AR with conventional, usable contact points in Left Spin, which can make it a good choice for compacts using Neo Left SG (Heavy Metal Core) and Wide Defense. Conventional compacts however usually prefer to be in Right Spin so that they can grind down tourney filler (which tends to be overwhelmingly right spin) rather than ending up in spin-stealing battles unsuited to their compact distribution.

Weight Disk: Eight Balance

Weight: 14.1g

  • Middling weight and unremarkable weight distribution.

  • Outclassed by pretty much every common competitive Weight Disk, particularly Ten Balance. Heavier plated versions can sometimes reach the same weight however, which makes them an equal, if niche and impractical alternative.

  • Generally though, no competitive use.

Spin Gear: Right Spin Gear (Bearing Version)

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 Casings: SG (Bearing Version)

Weight: 0.66g each (1.3g total) plus 1 Bearing

Weight: 0.68g

  • Somewhat dull pointed shaft made of regular plastic - less sharp than the Takara Version.

  • While traditionally reputed as less stable and more aggressive, the actual performance difference is minimal to none - the two trade blows in a head to head and work equally effectively against other opponents.

  • Useful for Zombie customizations with its solid stamina, limited aggression, decent precession and bearing support.

  • Only particularly useful Casings are Bearing Base and SG (Bearing Version), the latter being the only Left-Spin compatible option.

  • Somewhat outclassed by Bearing Base Shaft due to higher friction versus that Shaft's POM material.

  • Stability is outclassed by Neo SG (Double Bearing Version) Shaft.

  • Overall just as viable as the Takara Version, a very viable, relatively accessible part.

Blade Base: SG Bearing Base

Weight: 4.5g


  • While previously considered less valuable due to what turned out to be an inconsequential change to the SG Tip, the vastly improved Attack Ring (which was somehow less of a focus for Bladers of the time) makes Hasbro's Wolborg a much better buy than the Takara version. While not a must-have, it is a welcome addition to any blader's collection.
