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.
Attack Ring: Reverse Wolf (Hasbro)
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.
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.
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
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.
Blade Base: SG Bearing Base
Small, lightweight base compatible with most Bearing SGs
Compact Weight Distribution not ideal for Zombies
Limited contribution to LAD means it is best used with Wide Survivor.
Provides little protection from lower attackers
Some use in Attack types using SG Grip Change Base Tip in SG (Bearing Version 2) Casings, however the better weight distributions of Customize Bearing Base and Defense Grip Base 2 generally make them a superior choice.
Overall usable but outclassed by Defense Grip Base 2, Customize Grip Base and Customize Bearing Base.
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.
