The A-131 Dranzer-Metal Spiral is a Balance-type Beyblade and the fifth Beyblade implementing the Hard Metal System. It is also the last Beyblade labeled with the "A" product code. It was introduced during Beyblade G-Revolution in the series' BEGA arc and during chapter 1 of the manga series' 13th volume as the personal Beyblade of Kai Hiwatari, before being upgraded to the Dranzer-MF.

Bit Protector: Dranzer Emblem

The Bit Protector is constructed entirely of blue ABS caul plastic and comes complete with two sticker decor options:

  • Dranzer Emblem: A circular sticker featuring a stylized tattoo of Dranzer's head, with the words "DRANZER" and "Heavy/Hard Metal System" (in smaller font), all in white, labeled beneath it, sitting against a green background.
  • Dranzer: A circular sticker featuring a dynamic, full-colored rendition of the Bit-Beast, Dranzer against a yellow background.

Attack Ring: Spiral Upper

Attack: ★★ Defense: ★★ Endurance: ★★½ Weight: 20g

The Spiral Upper is constructed from two components: the Metal Frame: Left Upper and ABS Caul: Spiral Upper. Like the Metal Upper, Dranzer's (AR) features two slight ramps that produces an moderate Upper Attack when launched in left-rotation. Otherwise, it possesses reliable Smash Attack capability when launched in right-rotation.

Weight Disk: Circle Balance

Attack: ★½ Defense: ★½ Endurance: ★★ Weight: 15g

The Circle Balance is a good weight and is good for many different purposes. For more information view Circle Balance you can also put it on ed 145 or wa130

Spinning Core: Manual Change Core

Attack: ★★★ Defense: Endurance: ★★★ Weight: 2g

The RC is probably one of the best features of this Beyblade because of its ability to switch from attack mode to Endurance mode. The RC of this Blade is different in Hasbro than in Takara and have few differences. The Takara version suffers from balance issues at lower spin velocities, whereas the Hasbro version attempted to address this issue by giving it a Semi-Flat tip, but while improved the balance problem, its performance suffered in the stamina category. Either don’t make much movement unless placed on attack mode which has an overpowering speed causing the blade to fly out of the stadium constantly. In Endurance mode most movement is made in the center of the Bey-stadium which can be good or bad depending on the opponent.

Overall Review

The Dranzer-MS Beyblade features a manual switch gimmick in its (SC) that enables the player to adapt to different situations without resorting to customization. This Manual Change Core allows Dranzer-MS to switch between attack and stamina modes after each round. This gimmick was seen in an earlier model of Dranzer Beyblade: the Dranzer-Spiral. Overall, the Dranzer-MS performs decently, but the height of the Manual Change Core diminishes the performance capabilities of the Spiral Upper (AR).
