Ball Sharp is a Performance Tip released as part of the Metal System. It debuted with the release of Libra DF145BS in October 2008.


BS offers very little movement and provides no Attack potential. The pointed tip is supposed to allow very little friction between the Performance Tip and the stadium surface, which is used to help prevent the loss of spin velocity. However, BS has a low amount of Stamina, being beaten by many attack type tips in stamina battles. It also experiences the balance issues that the S series bottoms share because its tip is so fine. It is not recommended to use in competitive battles. D, WD, S and SD are better choices.




  • After so many uses, the sharp part of Ball Sharp will wear off, leaving the tip with a pattern more similar to Ball.
