Horusood Spread Edge (ホルスード・スプレッド・エッジ, Horusūdo Supureddo Ejji) is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It was released as a Booster in Japan on November 14th, 2015 for 864円. It is later evolved into Holy Horusood Upper Claw.
Energy Layer - Horusood
Main article: Energy Layer - Horusood (Takara Tomy)
Takara Tomy's Horusood is a Stamina Type Energy Layer that features a bird with the Eye of Horus in the center and two feathered blades that make up the bird's wings, meant to represent the Layer's namesake; Horus the falcon headed Egyptian god.
Due to the jagged design of and the large gaps in between the wings, this Layer has high recoil making Horusood unsuitable for Stamina. Furthermore, the teeth lead to the downfall of this Layer. The teeth are so short that they are unable to withstand the recoil that comes with the jagged design of the wings making Horusood incredibly prone to losses by Burst.
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 - Edge
Main article: Performance Tip - Edge
Edge features 4 vertical wings that descend toward an apex, making for a sharp bottom. Due to this pointy tip, it suffers from very poor balance, causing it to tilt on its axis and even topple over sooner than other Performance Tips from the Burst System, such as Defense, Survive, and even Claw. Edge's wings are 90° apart which seem to have the intention of Stabilization. However, this effect is negligible and possibly even is a contributing factor to this Performance Tip's imbalance.
