Metal Change Base
Blade Base: Metal Change Base
Metal Change tip allows for different movement depending on launch, and a mix of attack and survival qualities, as well as providing decent Defense as it is able to catch the Tornado Ridge quite easily compared to most tip shapes.
The most aggressive of the Metal Change tips in Plastics, and as such requires some practice to control into a flower pattern or more limited movement.
This causes some complaints about it being too aggressive – practice will remedy this, though there is a chance the tip could be worn.
Wears fast for a metal tip due to the small size of the point. Never use it outside of a stadium, ever.
Excellent Compact Blade Base, with great stamina, surprisingly good LAD and the ability to make use of all aspects of Compact Customization.
The defensive ability of the Change tip shape is very underrated. MFB's CS tip takes this to greater levels with a rubber outer section, but the tip catches the ridge well, helping it survive strong hits.
In addition to being the premier Compact Blade Base, the low height, aggression, and decent survival make it a viable choice for Traditional Upper Attack combinations, which appreciate the increased survival over a rubber tip.
Notable Mold Differences:
Sonokong's Driger S, aside from the usual compatibility issues, comes with a tip that is rounded instead of being a Metal Change tip. This results in poorer performance in all aspects, with no improvement to attack and significantly poorer stability. As such, this version of the tip is best avoided.
