The ABS Caul is composed of a symmetrical circular piece with four spikes which extend outwards between the four metal projections. These are often worn down through extended use, although this does not affect the Attack Ring’s usability.
This AR has a reversible metal sub ring, which is perfectly circular with four small rounded protrusions, making it perfect for Survival and Spin Stealing. By removing the top plastic portion of the AR, the ABS Caul, and reversing the metal sub ring, the orientation of these four notches can be reversed, hence making it suitable for both Right and Left Spin customisations. This is especially useful in Spin Stealing customisations, as highlighted below.
Use in Spin Stealing Customization
Advance Survivor is a good Attack Ring for Spin Stealing, with its round shape and small protrusions, which help to steal spin:
- AR: Advance Survivor (Advance Eterner)
- WD: Reverse Defenser ( Dranzer MF RBA4 Secret Black Ver., Dranzer RBA5 Yellow Ver.)
- RC: Bearing Core (Wolborg MS) or Bearing Core 2 (Jiraiya MS)
Advance Survivor’s configuration should have the rounded edge facing the Spin Direction: for example, if using Advance Survivor in Left Spin, the rounded edge should be facing counter-clockwise.
Select your RC depending on the situation. If you expect to see more Attackers and older Stadiums or Tornado Balance Type S, you should select Bearing Core 2 to prevent knock out. If you expect to see Defense or Survival type Beyblades and Stadiums like Tornado Balance or Tornado Attack, you should select Bearing Core as it has better survival than Bearing Core 2.
