Wing Upper

Attack Ring: Wing Upper

Weight: 5.3g

    • Unique rounded edges and an edge-focussed weight distribution are good for stamina, the former helping compensate slightly for the fact it is wider than Wide Survivor.

    • The rounded edges provide some ability to destabilise opponents, providing some versatility both on low combinations as well as Force Smash combinations, but advantage from this is negated by its greater recoil in both Left- and Right-Spin than alternatives such as Tiger Defenser, and for Force Smash, its range tends to be too short compared to Smash Turtle (though it is somewhat usable here).

Right Spin:

  • Slopes provide moderate upper attack and contact points provide moderate smash as well as a little recoil.

  • While usable for Compacts in this direction, the rotational recoil from the contact point shape and width of the AR means it is less effective than top tier ARs such as Tiger Defenser as the recoil causes it to fail to outspin a lot of key opponents including other compacts for a minimal offensive improvement.

  • Being slightly wider than Wide Survivor is an issue for use in Survival and Defense customizations as it has more recoil than smaller alternatives, relegating it to tier 2.

  • Can be used for Force Smash, but it is not wide enough to be truly effective like Smash Turtle, and has somewhat too much recoil for effective use.

  • Some use for Spin Stealing Attack however it lacks the offensive power to really make a combo more useful than just a regular Spin Stealer.

Left Spin:

    • Higher recoil than right spin as the contact points are the spikes at the front of the wings.

    • More offensively capable but still not terribly powerful.

    • Overall worse than right spin due to inferior defensive ability.

    • Still usable for compacts and to some degree Force Smash, but not particularly good in this direction.
