== Name Variation ==
[[Hasbro]] released this product under the name [[Bearing Stinger]].
== Attack Ring (AR): Scissor Cutter ==
* '''Weight:''' 5 grams
The AR of [[Metal Dragoon Bearing Stinger]], Scissor Cutter, is thin and light with decent balance. However, this AR is outperformed by countless other ARs. There is no reason to use Scissor Cutter in your Beyblade.
== Weight Disk (WD): Heavy ==
See [[Heavy (WD)]].
== Blade Base (BB): Bearing Base ==
* '''Weight:''' 8 grams
Bearing Base is the important part of this Beyblade. The tip of the Bearing Base is [[free-spinning]]. Because of this, when the Beyblade is hit by an opposing Beyblade, it absorbs much of the damage and does not lose spin as easily. The shaft of Bearing Base is held in place by two [[bearings]] (one of the two is plastic, but it can be replaced by NSK [[Bearings|bearing]]), an attribute shared only with [[Burning Kerberus]] and [[Takara]]'s [[Zeus]]. Because of these double [[bearings]], Bearing Base can regain its balance quickly after being hit. The tip of this shaft is very sharp and made of a plastic that has low friction when compared to other tips. It is one of the best tips for [[survival]] Beyblades.
=== Mold Variations ===
[[Hasbro]]'s Bearing Base has a slight but important difference. The tip of the Beyblade is slightly sharper and made out of a harder plastic, resulting in more [[survival]] potential, but substantially less [[defense]] potential.
=== Using Bearing Base Shaft in Other Blade Bases ===
An important trick to learn using the Bearing Base is that the shaft can be removed and put into the casing of [[Wolborg]]'s shaft. This will allow you to use Bearing Stinger's tip in [[5-layer]] combos, which affords you the advantage of using a left spin direction with this tip, along with using [[Wolborg 2]]'s BB. This can even be extended into making [[6-Layer]] combos, as the SG of Wolborg can be placed in [[Dragoon V2]]'s BB. Using this method, you can use Bearing Base's tip in conjunction with SP.
=== Use in [[Zombie|Zombies]] ===
Bearing Base was the only BB choice for first generation [[Zombie|Zombies]]. It was effective for [[survival]], spin-stealing, and life after death. Even after the first generation, the shaft of Bearing Base could still be used in [[5-layer]] and [[6-layer]] Zombie combos.
==== Use in First Generation [[Zombie|Zombies]] ====
Before the release of [[Wolborg]], the only BB available for players wanting to use a [[Zombie]] strategy -- or create any meaningful [[survival]] type -- was Bearing Base. The problem was that since this Beyblade did not use an SG, it was difficult to change its spin direction. However, using the AR of [[Roller Defenser]] in a certain fashion, players were able to change spin direction.
An example combo would be:
* '''AR:''' Roller Defense Ring ([[Roller Defenser]])
* '''WD:''' [[Wide Survivor]]
* '''BB:''' Bearing Base ([[Metal Dragoon Bearing Stinger]])
==== Use in Second Generation [[Zombie|Zombies]] ====
After the release of [[Wolborg]] and [[Wolborg 2]], players had considerably more options when it came to building [[Zombie|Zombies]]. However, Bearing Base's tip was still a strong choice. Neither Wolborg nor Wolborg 2's tips provide the same pure [[survival]] potential. Luckily, the casing for Wolborg's shaft allowed the Bearing Base shaft to be exchanged with it. Unfortunately, the ability to use two bearings is lost.
An example combo would be:
* '''AR:''' Tiger Defense ([[Driger S]])
* '''WD:''' [[Wide Survivor]]
* '''SG:''' [[Left SG]] (Bearing Version) ([[Wolborg]])
* '''Shaft:''' Bearing Base ([[Metal Dragoon Bearing Stinger]])
* '''BB:''' Defense Grip Base 2
==== Use in Third Generation [[Zombie|Zombies]] ====
Even during the [[6-layer]] generation, Bearing Base's shaft could still be used to strong results. The trick is similar to second generation [[Zombie|Zombies]].
An example combo would be:
* '''AR:''' Twin Horn ([[Gabriel]] <nowiki>[</nowiki>[[Takara]] Version])
* '''WD:''' [[Wide Survivor]]
* '''SG:''' [[Left SG]] (Bearing Version) ([[Wolborg]])
* '''Shaft:''' Bearing Base ([[Metal Dragoon Bearing Stinger]])
* '''SP:''' Defense Ring ([[Voltaic Ape]])
* '''BB:''' Customize Grip Base ([[Dragoon V2]])
== Other Versions ==
* [[Bearing Stinger]] - [[Phantom Force]] Version
== Overall ==
[[Metal Dragoon Bearing Stinger]] is one of the most useful Beyblades released, mostly due to its BB and shaft. Unfortunately, it is also one of the oldest and rarest. Although the [[Phantom Force]] release alleviated this temporarily, it has now gone back to being practically impossible to track down. It is a shame, because it is also a Beyblade that ever player should own. '''Every player should own multiples of this Beyblade.'''
