Flying Defense

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 edges create some recoil particularly below the Attack Ring, and combined with having less weight around the edge than Flying Defense (Hasbro) means it lacks the competitive use of that version.

  • 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 much worse than its Hasbro counterpart.
