Ifritor I2, known as Inferno Ifrit (インフェルノイフリート, Inferuno Ifurīto) in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-64 Beyblade Super Custom Set Heavy Ver. on November 12th, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Starter Pack Ifritor I2 Magnum Liner.
Ifritor I2 is a triangular Energy Layer made for Attack, the perimeter of which features three triangles and three pointed blades creating the primary points of impact, one of the triangles making up the upper jaw and one of the blades of which makes up the lower jaw of the Layer's namesake, the supernatural creature of fire from Islamic Scripture.
The pointed shape and direction of the blades implies a high recoil design that excels in Burst Attack, while the downward slope of the blades allows for small amounts of Force Smash and Destabilization and the three triangles are pointed downward so they do not cover up the blades. Furthermore the Takara Tomy release of Inferno Ifrit features four teeth, the first of which is short in length and the last three are tall in length, allowing this Layer to withstand its own recoil. However, Inferno Ifrit's blades are in reality, compact which limits the recoil and the Layer suffers a history of breaks and no mold variations have been released to solve that problem. It is recommended to have multiple copies of this Layer and to be prepared to replace it.
Due to this Layer's moderate recoil and Burst Attack, Inferno Ifrit is a decent choice for Attack Combinations. However, with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Inferno Ifrit is too light to remain competitive.
As such, Inferno Ifrit is recommended for collection purposes only.
Differences in the Hasbro Version
Hasbro's Ifritor I2 is virtually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Inferno Ifrit with the same recoil and Force Smash potential. However, due to using softer plastic, Ifritor I2 does not break like its Takara Tomy counterpart. However, with the release of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Ifritor I2 is too light to remain competitive.
As such, Ifritor I2 is also recommended for collection purposes only.
