Metal Flat or MF is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-102 Booster Screw Capricorne 90MF on January 22, 2011, and in western countries with the release of the BB-102 Starter Pack Spiral Capricorn 90MF.
Metal Flat (MF), as the name implies, is a flat tip made of metal, giving it an aggressive movement. However, since metal has more traction than plastic flat tips, Metal Flat has more speed due to less friction. However, this means Metal Flat has considerably less Defense. This can be mitigated with a Defense Type Spin Track like Eternal Defense 145 (ED145). In addition, unlike its plastic counterparts, Metal Flat can keep the sliding shoot pattern. Metal Flat also offers greater control and Stamina over its rubber counterparts such as Rubber Flat (RF), but less aggressive movement and recoil control. Due to its aggressive movement and Stamina, Metal Flat also finds use in Tornado Staller combinations.
Metal Flat offers aggressive movement and high Stamina for an Attack Type Performance Tip, and is comparable to its rubber counterparts for use. Metal Flat is a top-tier Performance Tip for Attack Type combos due to its aggressive speed, control, and Stamina.
As such, Metal Flat is a must have for competitive bladers.
