Type: Defense

Attack Ring (AR): Flying Defense

  • Weight: 7 Grams

As the name suggests the Takara version of Flying Defense is able to fly. Hasbro removed this ability and made some other changes. (For more information see Mold Variations below) The width of Flying Defense is 8.84 cm wide (3.50”) and is too large to be thrown out of stadiums such as the Tornado Balance Type S and many others. For this reason it may be useful to use the Hasbro Version with a low base, such as Dragoon S's Storm Grip Base, so it cannot be knocked off balance by an Upper Attacker easily. If this Attack Ring is on a high base, when it is knocked off balance the Attack Ring will scrape across the stadium flaw and stop spinning. Flying Defense is quite breakable, another reason not to use it competitively.

Mold Variations

Hasbro removed the ability to fly, as well as removing the three attacking points, leaving a totality circular AR. For this reason the Hasbro mold can be used against spin stealers, when paired with a low base, see this example combo:

As it is perfectly circular Flying Defense is almost impossible to steal spin from.

Use in Attack Customization

Because of Trypio's wide attack range, it can be used effectively to some extent with an attack based BB in a Hasbro stadium.

This custom was primarily used to defeat Survival type combos in Hasbro stadiums. With a high movement BB, like SG Metal Flat 2, this custom will bounce off walls and push the opposing Beyblade into the pockets, while at the same time not being able to be pocketed itself because of its size. Obviously, this would not be effective against Defense customs since they will be able to take the hits and easily outlast it. Attack types are not this Beyblade's concern, and besides, experienced Bladers will usually not use Attack types in Hasbro stadiums.

Unless you are a collector there is virtually no reason to buy this beyblade. It cannot be used in any competitive situation.
