Upper Fox is an Attack Ring released as part of the Hard Metal System. It debuted with the release of Phantom Fox MS.

Description

  • Weight: 19 grams

Upper Fox's purpose is simple; right-spin Upper Attack and left-spin Smash. And while Upper Fox can be used effectively in many Attack based customs, ARs such as Circle or Samurai Upper and Jiraiya Blade are always picked over Upper Fox when they are available.

The Upper Attack of Upper Fox is weak in comparison to Death Gargoyle MS's Circle Upper and Samurai Changer MS's Samurai Upper due to its slope being on a smaller angle and because the ABS Caul of Upper Fox blocks the beginning of the ramp where the Upper would begin. While Upper Fox can still be used for Upper Attack, its performance is hindered because of the shape of the ABS Caul.

As mentioned, in left-spin Upper Fox has a couple sharp enough points which enable it to perform Smash Attack. These points however consist of mainly plastic, while pales in comparison to an AR such as Jiraiya Blade who's Metal Frame is almost entirely around the perimeter of the AR, for the purpose of Smash Attack.

Shared Metal Frame

Upper Fox shares the same Metal Frame as both Upper Dragon from Dragoon MF, and Devil Crusher from Bloody Devil MS.

Use in Upper Attack Customization

Upper Fox can be used as a substitute for ARs such as Samurai Upper when they are not available.

  • AR: Upper Fox (Phantom Fox MS)
  • WD: CWD Defense Ring (Sea Dragon)
  • RC: Grip Flat Core (Ultimate Version) (Dragoon MS UV)

Use in Smash Attack Customization

Again, while Upper Fox is most certainly not the best choice, it can be used in Smash Attack customizations when there are no better options.

  • AR: Upper Fox (Phantom Fox MS)
  • WD: Circle Wide
  • RC: Grip Flat Core (Ultimate Version) (Dragoon MS UV)
