Fafnir F7 is a Drive Chip released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the QuadDrive System. It debuted in western countries with the release of the QuadDrive Starter Pack Vanish Fafnir F7 Tapered-Q Xtend+-Q+Kick-3.
Hasbro's Fafnir F7 is a left-spin Drive Chip that features a dragon representing the Drive Chip's namesake: Fafnir, son of the dwarf king Hreidmar. It is a vertically oriented Drive Chip. Fafnir F7 has a below average weight for Drive Chips, and average Burst Resistance. At the time of writing, it is the tightest left-spin Drive Chip, although its Burst Resistance is not comparable to GT Chips released in the HyperSphere System, which have higher Burst Resistance. The issue of low Burst Resistance is compounded by the light weight of QuadDrive System Layers, making them even easier to Burst than usual.
QuadDrive System Layers are heavily outclassed by releases from Takara Tomy in the Cho-Z Layer System and onward.As such, Hasbro's Fafnir F7 is recommended for collection purposes only.
Although Hasbro's Fafnir F7 is the tightest left-spin Drive Chip, its low weight and mediocre Burst Resistance means QuadDrive System Layers have no competitive advantage over similar alternatives from other systems, which have higher Burst Resistance. However, Fafnir F7 should be used if a left-spin Blade is being utilized.As such, Hasbro's Fafnir F7 is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to a blader's collection.
Hasbro's Fafnir F7 is not legal in the WBO's Burst Classic Format.As such, Hasbro's Fafnir F7 is recommended for collection purposes only.
