- This article is about High Zephyr. For its normal counterpart, see Performance Tip - Zephyr.
High Zephyr (ハイゼファー, Haizefā) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Superking Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-176 Random Booster Vol. 23 on December 26th, 2020.
Takara Tomy's High Zephyr is a High Driver variant of Zephyr, featuring a taller height than the standard Performance Tip. High Zephyr features a hollow plastic flat tip with a small diameter, and sits at the standard height. Compared to Accel, the diameter of High Zephyr is slightly larger. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter "Z" for easy differentiation from other Drivers. Due to the surface area, High Zephyr will create an aggressive, and if launched at an angle, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, High Zephyr is comparable to Accel, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. Due to the plastic construction, High Zephyr is an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations.
However, High Zephyr's plastic construction is also a weakness as Attack Combinations using High Zephyr can lose their Banking Pattern somewhat easily, especially if the Combinations are unbalanced. Furthermore, the low friction means that High Zephyr is liable to Self-Knock-Outs. Finally, due to High Zephyr's hollow construction, the Driver is liable to denting in the case of Disc-to-Driver contact after a Burst.
