Rubber Ball or RB is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-116 Random Booster Vol. 8 Jade Jupiter on August 6, 2011, and in western countries with the release of the BB-116-FX Spark FX Starter Pack Jade Jupiter S130RB by Hasbro in 2013.

Description

Rubber Ball (RB), as its name suggests, is a Ball Performance Tip, made of rubber. Interestingly enough about it is the fact that it is very wide; the widest out of any Rubber-based Performance Tip to date.

Performance-wise, Rubber Ball is great for Defense; with comparable abilities to that of Rubber Spike (RS) and Rubber Defense Flat (RDF). While Rubber Ball contains a somewhat aggressive movement, it still maintains a Ball-based movement as well. Its rubber allows it to have better grip on the Stadium floor, allowing it to take powerful hits from Attack Types. Rubber Ball will move mostly around the middle on the stadium.

While obtaining great results for Defense, Rubber Ball has failed on certain combos, due to its large surface area, which while creating more friction, reduces Stamina and thus, makes it easier to KO than that of Rubber Spike. It is also not suited for Attack Type combos and is terrible in Stamina, like other rubber Performance Tips.

When worn down, it can act like a pseudo-flat tip.
