Flame Wing 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 sources 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 its opponent in right spin. These protruding notches are also the source for the AR’s main weakness; durability. Like many Smash attackers, Flame Wing is fragile and the notches have a tendency to break off with constant use.
Since the spikes are angled upwards it is capable of Upper Attack. The upper attack however is inferior to a lot of the competition (Upper Dragoon, 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.
Use in Smash Attack Customization
- AR: Flame Wing
- WD: 10 Wide
- BB: Grip Base (Dragoon Grip Attacker)
This combination is lightweight, resulting in high speeds. The fast movement can be hard to control, unless a shooting technique such as the Sliding Shoot is employed. Use of this technique improves the chances of performing an early KO.
Use in Upper Attack Customization
- AR: Flame Wing
- WD: 10 Heavy
- SG: Neo Right SG Heavy Metal Core (Metal Driger)
- BB: Storm Grip Base (Dragoon S)
This customization makes the best of the Upper Attack that Flame Wing has. Its heavier weight and low height allows it to lift the opposing beyblade, instead of being pushed downwards.
