Attack Ring (AR): Eight Spike
- Weight: 5 grams
Eight Spike is designed in a circular shape with 8 protrusions. This Attack Ring carries the torch of worthless Draciel AR's, as it has absolutely no competitive use due to its absymal preformance in all fields.
Weight Disk (WD): Eight Balance
See Balance Weight Disks.
Spin Gear (SG): Right SG (SG Grease Ball Ver.)
See Spin Gear.
Blade Base (BB): Fortress Base
- Note: Only One (1) set of balls is currently legal under Word Beyblade Organization Organized Play Rules. The following information is outdated.
- Weight of BB Only: 12 grams
- Weight of BB with 1 set of metal balls (Original Weight): 14 grams
- Weight of BB with 2 set of metal balls: 16 grams
- Weight of BB with 3 set of metal balls: 18 grams
The Fortress Base is one of the best Blade Bases for Defense type customizations. SG Oil Ball contains a metal ball with an oil resevoir above it, which makes it an excellent Blade Base for Defense. In fact, due to this round metal tip, it has a tendency to remain in the central area of the stadium in order to avoid attacks. The metal tip causes less friction between itself and the Beystadium which normally allows it to get knocked around in terms of defense, but its ability to hold up to 2 or 3 sets of metal balls prevents this because of the increase in weight.
Fortress Base can hold 2 sets of metal balls in its pocket, and 2 additional metal balls in the small holes in the Blade Base, this does however require a specific Weight Disk. Fortress Base can hold Bearing Spin Gears, making it an extremley useful part. You can create many efficient combos with Draciel F's Blade Base.
Use in Defense Customization :
You can make great defense types with Fortress Base. You can add more weight to your combos by adding two extra metal balls. More weight increases spin rate.

With a terrible Attack Ring, generic Weight Disk, useless Spin Gear and heavily outclassed but nonetheless interesting Blade Base, Draciel F is only of interest to Defense fanatics or those in need of additional Metal Balls for use in its more effective predecessors, and even that is only due to the cheap prices it can be found for. Outside of these conditions, this Beyblade is only worth buying for collection purposes.
