Dranzer Spiral Spread Trans (ドランザースパイラル・スプレッド・トランス, Doranzā Supairaru Supureddo Toransu) is a Balance Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of Beyblade's 15th Anniversary for the Burst System. It was released as a wbba. Store Exclusive Booster in Japan on November 25th, 2016 for 972円.
Energy Layer - Dranzer Spiral
- Main article: Energy Layer - Dranzer Spiral (Takara Tomy)
Takara Tomy's Dranzer Spiral is a Burst System adaptation of the Double Wing Attack Ring and Dranzer Bit Chip from the Original Series' Spin Gear System. As such it features an overall elliptical shape with two bird heads and wings on either side which act as the main points of contact creating an aggressive, recoil heavy shape and an image of the Bit Beast Dranzer in the center. The only differences between the Energy Layer and the original Attack Ring is that the Layer is much thicker overall, the wings are more compact making the Layer somewhat smaller and the "Bit Chip" is non-removable. Dranzer Spiral features teeth comparable to those on Nova Neptune, however this leads to the downfall of this Energy Layer.
Similarly to Storm Spriggan, the teeth of Dranzer Spiral are unable to withstand the recoil that comes with the aggressive shape causing it to Self-Burst very easily.
Forge Disc - Spread
- Main article: Forge Disc - Spread
Spread is a completely circular Forge Disc, featuring a smooth perimeter and underside only interrupted by four small bumps located beneath the prongs, as well as several stylized blade designs on top. As with all Forge Discs, the letter representing the Forge Disc, in this case, S, is present on top of the prongs that fit into the Energy Layer. Spread has a significant amount of Outward Weight Distribution (OWD), and a relatively thin and aerodynamic shape, making it a viable choice for Stamina Combinations. Depending on which Performance Tip is used, Spread can also provide the combo with some Life-After-Death as it will roll along the stadium floor and give the Combination a few extra rotations after falling over, which can be crucial for Out Spinning an opponent.
For some time after its release, Spread was very useful in Stamina Combinations due to its weight distribution and its fair weight. However, as Bladers now have a wider array of competitively viable Forge Discs to choose from, Spread has fallen out of use compared to options such as Gravity and Knuckle.
Performance Tip - Trans
- Main article: Performance Tip - Trans
Trans features an adjustable tip at standard height with two settings, Stamina and Attack, which are switched by twisting the bottom portion of the Performance Tip. Embossed onto the top is a stylized "T" for easy differentiation.
The Stamina setting exposes a small low angle cone tip meant to make the Beyblade stationary in the center of the stadium, however to accommodate the mode change the cone tip is incredibly small in diameter, unlike Survive. Due to this, the tip is susceptible to being knocked off balance in this setting and with the bulky size of Trans, can lead to risks of scraping, though this effect is mitigated by the low angle of the tip. However, the setting lags behind Tips such as Eternal to due to the lack of a free spinning component.
The Attack setting covers the cone tip with a flat tip with a hole in the center akin to Zephyr, creating an aggressive but controllable movement pattern with a hybrid of Attack and Stamina properties, ideal for Mobile Stamina Combinations. However the edges of the flat tip has 4 small tabs around it which prevents the tip from catching onto the Tornado Ridge, instead causing it to grind and lose Stamina making this tip a poor choice for Tornado Stalling Combinations.
