Drift (ドリフト, Dorifuto) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Limit Break System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-175 Booster Lucifer The End Kou Drift on November 28th, 2020.
Drift is a wide, round Performance Tip with an octagonal shape and a low angled, free spinning, conical sharp tip.
The sharp tip of Drift creates low friction with the stadium floor, resulting in high Stamina and Burst Defense. In addition, the wide diameter of the free spinning sharp tip helps maintain stability. These factors, combined with the overall round shape of Drift, creates high Life-After-Death (LAD), and works particularly well against Opposite-Spin opponents.
Due to its high Stamina, Burst Defense, and Life-After-Death (LAD), Drift is an excellent Performance Tip for Defense and Stamina Type Combinations, particularly against Opposite-Spin opponents.
As such, Drift is a must have for competitive bladers.
- Drift was the most frequently used Performance Tip in the 2021 Remote Burst Cup tournaments held by Takara Tomy in Japan.
