== Attack Ring (AR): Wing Cross ==
* '''Weight:''' 5 grams
Wing Cross is a strong AR because of its extremely evenly distributed weight, thin size, and smooth edges. It was previously commonly used among [[zombies]]/[[spin-stealers]] before becoming outclassed by other ARs, such as [[Galeon]]'s War Lion or [[Driger S]]'s Tiger Defense. Despite this, Wing Cross did not become obsolete.
[[Bistool]]'s Wing Cross stayed popular in the [[10bBistool]] combo, and also in some [[compact]] combos. This AR has many uses in [[balance]] and [[survival]] type combos.
=== Use in First Generation [[Zombies]] ===
Wing Cross was used as an AR in [[first generation]] [[zombies]] (that is, before the [[S Series]] was released). It was used because of its balanced weight distribution, thin design, and because its projections (the attack spikes protruding from the AR) could be used to [[steal spin]], as they extended just beyond the reach of the [[Wide Survivor]] WD.
=== IMPORTANT: Mold Variations ===
The mold variation of the Wing Cross AR is what makes it such a popular choice. While the [[Takara]] version of [[Bistool]], Gekiryu-oh and [[Ultimate Frostic Dranzer]], along with the [[Hasbro]] versions of Gekiryu-oh Ultimate Frostic Dranzer have thin spikes, the ends of [[Hasbro]] Bistool's spikes have been connected to the center of the AR, supposedly to prevent breaking. Because of this, Bistool's AR has become a far more popular choice than Ultimate Frostic Dranzer's and Gekiryu-oh's.
If you wish to see combinations using Bistool's Wing Cross, please see the Bistool article.

== Overall ==
This Beyblade was very useful at one point, but after [[Hasbro]]'s [[Bistool]] was released, there simply was not much of a use for it. Indeed, the only unique part of [[Ultimate Frostic Dranzer]]/Gekiryu-oh/Bistool is the Wing Cross AR, and the Hasbro Bistool version is stronger, both in terms of durability and use during battle. Because of this, there is almost no reason to buy Gekiryu-oh. You should buy Hasbro Bistool instead.
