Black Flame is a multi-attack style ring, capable of both Upper Attack and Smash Attack. Unfortunately, its ‘Jack of All Trades’ design tends to give it more setbacks than advantages. The source of its Smash Attack are the two blunt notches on the end of the spikes. Upon contact, these notches have the potential to cause significant damage to an opponent in right spin. These protruding notches are also the source for the AR’s main weakness; durability. Like many Smash attackers, Black Flame is fragile and the notches have a tendency to break off with constant use.
Since the spikes are angled upwards, Black Dranzer is capable of Upper Attack. However, the upper attack is inferior to a lot of the competing beyblades, such as Upper Dragoon and Triple Tiger. The cause of this is the smaller angle of the slope (around 10 degrees) compared to Upper Dragoon’s 15 degrees (Right Spin). This is an AR that should be used when superior Upper Attack or Smash Attack AR’s are unavailable.
