Storm Chip - Valtryek V6
- Main article: Storm Chip - Valtryek V6
Hasbro's Valtryek V6 is a right-spin Storm Chip that features an armored face with a stylized V adorning the helmet, akin to its GT Chip predecessor Valtryek V5. The design is intended to represent the Storm Chip's namesake, Odin's handmaidens in Norse mythology. Valtryek V6 has a subpar weight for Hasbro Storm Chips and mediocre Burst Resistance. Thus Valtryek V6 is heavily outclassed by other right-spin Storm Chips such as Dragon D6.
Ring - Brave
- Main article: Ring - Brave (Hasbro)
Hasbro's Brave is a Right-Spin Attack Type Ring with three upward slanted wings, characteristic of the Valtryek line. These wings act as the Ring's main contact points and end in somewhat sharp ends. Unlike its Takara Tomy counterpart, Brave does not feature rubber, instead consisting of a single plastic piece. As such, Brave lacks the Bound Attack capabilities of Takara Tomy's Brave.
The wings of Brave are noticeably shorter and not as steep as their Takara Tomy counterparts. Like other Hasbro Rings, the underside of Brave is considerably more hollow as well, leading to a light weight comparable to SwitchStrike System Energy Layers. The removal of the rubber as well as the modified shapes of the wings leads to a significant reduction in Attack power. Brave is consequently outclassed by other Attack Type Layers for Attack Combinations. Even among Hasbro Energy Layers, Brave is outclassed by the likes of Nightmare Lúinor L3 and Turbo Valtryek V3, which are heavier and have more effective shapes.
Forge Disc - Aero'
- Main article: Forge Disc - Aero'
Aero' is a Core Disc and remaster of the Aero Forge Disc. It is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Despite its name, Aero' bears little resemblance to its predecessor. At about 16.7 grams, Aero' is very underweight compared to other Core Discs, and one of the lightest Forge Discs, only beaten by 12. Due to its light weight, Aero' is heavily outclassed by virtually all other Core Discs, which have since been replaced by other heavier Forge Discs.
Performance Tip - Evolutional-SP
- Main article: Performance Tip - Evolutional-SP
Evolutional-SP features a rubber tip, made up of two sets of rubber spikes. These rubber spikes begin at a very tall height, as Evolutional-SP is taller than its normal counterpart, Evolution, which already begins at a taller height than the average Performance Tip. The rubber spikes are meant to wear down and break off with use, becoming more aggressive over time. Unlike Evolution, Evolutional-SP features softer rubber, allowing the spikes to wear more easily. Once fully worn, its height is comparable to a mint condition Evolution. The softer rubber of Evolutional-SP creates faster and more aggressive movement when compared to its normal and Dash counterparts.
When launched in mint condition the first set of six spikes will create a mildly aggressive pattern at speeds akin to Blow, albeit without the Stamina due to the greater friction the rubber has. While Evolutional-SP's taller height would, in theory, increase the rate of Disc-to-Layer contact and Burst the opponent, due to the height of most Layers and the minimal difference in height, such contact is rare. Furthermore, most Attack Combinations benefit from a shorter height as a taller height creates a Destabilization risk instead.
After the first set of spikes have given way to the second set of fourteen spikes, Evolutional-SP's speed increases dramatically, becoming as fast or even faster than Xtreme, due to the now increased surface area and diameter. However, that same speed and diameter increase makes Evolutional-SP incredibly difficult to control at this stage as banking is difficult to maintain, Self-Knock-Outs become common and its Stamina worsens. Due to the greater number of spikes and their shorter length, Evolutional-SP does not wear out as quickly at this stage. Of the stages, this third stage of Evolutional-SP is considered the best.
When the second set of spikes break off, what is left is a base of rubber. At this point Evolutional-SP's speed increases further but the aforementioned control and Stamina issues become even worse, having trouble even staying on the Tornado Ridge of the stadium and losing spin too quickly to perform any meaningful attacks before it begins to slow down.
When Evolutional-SP loses spikes, it does become shorter as a result. However because Evolutional-SP starts much taller than the standard height, the height reduction only brings the Tip closer to the standard height. However, due to the wide base, Evolutional-SP has relatively high Life-After-Death when worn down, making it a somewhat safer choice against Spin-Equalization Combinations.
