In-depth information for Takara Tomy's first Dragon Gatinko Chip will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
Layer Weight - Ten
- Main article: Layer Weight - Ten
Ten has four hexagons, two on each side, with a sizable gap between the two on each side. Ten has little use, given that even less commonly used Layer Weights such as Sen, Zan, and Retsu outclass Ten due to its shape and Weight Distribution. Ten does not offer any particular advantage over other, more commonly used Layer Weights.
Layer Base - Ace
- Main article: Layer Base - Ace (Takara Tomy)
There are two variations of Takara Tomy's Ace. The first variation debuted in the Ace Dragon Sting Charge Zan Starter, and is the standard for all releases of Ace, except for the Random Booster Vol. 22 Ace Dragon Wheel Rise Gen release. This second variation features a Burst Lock (バーストロック, Bāsuto Rokku), which are protrusions that obstruct the Forge Disc and hinder Bursting.
Forge Disc - 0
- Main article: Forge Disc - 0
0 is a symmetrical Forge Disc that's elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion, each wide and smooth enough to almost make the Forge Disc perfectly circular if not for the notches needed to add a Disc Frame and a molded "0" on each side. The protrusions extend further and are thicker than most other Forge Discs which makes 0 one of the heaviest Forge Discs and implies high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and Stamina potential. In reality however, more weight is focused towards the center, which creates Centralized Weight Distribution (CWD) that reduces its Stamina to that of 2's. As such, 0 is outclassed by 7 for Stamina Combinations but 0's greater weight makes it ideal for Attack and Defense Combinations. Furthermore, the round shape of 0 creates high Life-After-Death, even without the use of Disc Frames such as Cross. While the weight can increase the risk of Bursts, the weight of most SwitchStrike/God Layers and Cho-Z Layers can compensate.
Disc Frame - Glaive
- Main article: Disc Frame - Glaive
Glaive is a mostly round Disc Frame with two sharp, wave like protrusions on either side. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer in battle, the round shape of Glaive grants high Life-After-Death while the upwards direction of the protrusions ensure they do not scrape along the stadium floor. While Cross has greater Life-After-Death, Glaive is still comparable.
Performance Tip - Zephyr'
- Main article: Performance Tip - Zephyr'
Zephyr' features a hollow plastic flat tip with a small diameter, akin to Hole Flat from Metal Fight Beyblade, and sits at the standard height. Compared to Accel, the diameter of Zephyr' is slightly larger. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter "Z" for easy differentiation from other Drivers. Due to the surface area, Zephyr' will create an aggressive, and if launched at an angle, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Zephyr' is comparable to Accel, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. Due to the plastic construction, Zephyr' is an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations.
However, Zephyr''s plastic construction is also a weakness as Attack Combinations using Zephyr' can lose their Banking Pattern somewhat easily, especially if the Combinations are unbalanced. Furthermore, the low friction means that Zephyr' is liable to Self-Knock-Outs. Finally, due to Zephyr''s hollow construction, the Driver is liable to denting in the case of Disc-to-Driver contact after a Burst.
However, unlike its predecessor, Zephyr' features a much thicker spring in its locking mechanism, increasing Zephyr''s Burst resistance and significantly reducing the risk of Driver damage.
