Fafnir F3 7Meteor Flugel is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the SwitchStrike System. It was released in western countries as a part of the Spin Shifter Pack for USD$29.99 in the United States.

Energy Layer - Fafnir F3

Main article: Energy Layer - Fafnir F3

Hasbro's Fafnir F3 is a round left-spin Stamina Type Layer based on Takara Tomy's Drain Fafnir God Layer. Fafnir F3 is nearly identical to Drain Fafnir, with the only visual difference being the God Chip is now irremovable. Like Drain Fafnir, Fafnir F3 features three dragon heads meant to represent this Layer's namesake: Fafnir, a dragon from Norse mythology. These dragon heads have clear plastic "horns" and rubber "F"s that sticks out slightly at two points along the perimeter. Three claws grasp the center God Chip. These molding details give Fafnir F3 a rough perimeter and a high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) by concentrating the weight along the perimeter. As part of the SwitchStrike System, Fafnir F3 features a gimmick: the rubber "F"s aid in the ability to Spin-Equalize with a right-spin opponent. Compared to Drain Fafnir, Fafnir F3 does not Spin-Equalize as well, as the rubber "F"s are harder and thus have less friction. However, the effect is still there and is strong enough to win by the same Spin-Equalization strategy.

Forge Disc - 7

Main article: Forge Disc - 7

7, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is an asymmetrical, elliptical disc that can facilitate a Disc Frame. 7 is designed similar to Gravity or Heavy, with seven designs jutting out that resemble the number "7". At first glance, the Disc looks unbalanced, but in reality, two of the sections on one side being halves makes it balanced. 7 is one of the heaviest Discs thus far, outclassed only by 10 and 0, and has a ideal weight distribution for Stamina Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential without the severe Burst Risk of 8. With the use of Disc Frames, 7 can be used to great effect in any Combination.

Disc Frame - Meteor

Main article: Disc Frame - Meteor

Meteor is a pentagonal Disc Frame with numerous protrusions to give it a rough perimeter. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer, Meteor is one of the thickest Disc Frames available, which grants high Attack potential when paired with Core Discs such as 7.

Performance Tip - Flugel

Main article: Performance Tip - Flugel

Flugel features a low angled cone tip that sits at the standard height akin to Survive, but differs by featuring four wings, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Down Force 145, that offer Upper Force in Right-Spin and Down Force in Left-Spin.

The cone shape gives Flugel low surface area and friction to conserve Stamina in battle while also providing Stability, giving a Combination resistance against the Layer scraping against the Stadium floor and losing Stamina.

In theory, when used in Right-Spin Combinations, the Upper Force would increase Stamina by generating an air current that "lifts" the Beyblade off of the stadium, effectively reducing the friction between Flugel and the stadium. When used in Left-Spin Combinations, the Down Force generated would push the Beyblade down into the stadium and increase Stability at the cost of Stamina. However in practice, the small size of the wings means that any Upper Force or Down Force generated is minimal with no discernible difference in performance.
