SG Metal Ball is one of the best BB for Defense type customizations. It has a round metal tip which makes it oriented for defense since 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 stadium which normally allows it to get knocked around in terms of defense, but in this case, its ability to hold up to 2 sets of metal balls prevents this because of the increase in weight.
This BB can hold up to 2 sets of metal balls just like Metal Ball Base (Draciel Metal Ball Defenser) and Fortress Base (Draciel F), however, unlike the other two, it can hold a Heavy Metal Core (Metal Driger) in addition to the 2 sets of metal balls making it the heaviest BB ever at over 20 grams. The combination of the heavy weight on the round metal tip provides one of the best options of defense type BBs to use.
Use in Defense Customization
You can make great defense types with SG Metal Ball. As mentioned previously, you can add more weight to your combos by adding two extra metal balls. More weight increases spin rate, but be careful not to make your combos too heavy.

Like most Draciels, the AR of Draciel S has no use. What makes this Beyblade worth getting is just its BB SG Metal Ball. Its ability to hold up to two sets of Metal Balls along with a Heavy Metal Core (Metal Driger) makes it worth getting alone. It has become one of the most popular defense BBs to use because of its abilities. In order to maximize the BB’s efficiency, it is a good idea to purchase at least two of this to have the BB as well as 2 sets of metal balls.
