Rubber Semi-Flat or RSF is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-91 Booster Ray Gil 100RSF on October 23, 2010, and in western countries with the release of the BB-91 Starter Pack Ray Gil 100RSF.

Description[]

Rubber Semi-Flat (RSF) is a SF tip made of rubber. It is essentially a flat tip with a smaller radius, giving it a firm, defensive grip on the stadium floor, but still allowing for a small aggressive movement pattern with a proper launch. Its drawback is its weakness against opposite spin Beyblades, and its poor Stamina. Rubber Semi-Flat, like Rubber Spike (RS), suffers from poor Stamina, but the wider surface area of Rubber Semi-Flat results in better balance than the aforementioned Rubber Spike.

Mold Variations[]

Rubber Semi-Flat has two mold variations. The variant included with Tornado Horuseus 130RSF appears to made of a softer rubber, and thus behaves more aggressively than other molds. In addition, the variant included with some copies of Takara Tomy's Blitz Unicorno 100RSF are made of a harder rubber. This should be taken into consideration when choosing a method of obtaining Rubber Semi-Flat.

Overall[]

Although Rubber Semi-Flat's is originally classified as an Attack-Type performance tip, it has very little unique attacking capabilities, due to the lack of fast and aggressive movement that allows Attack-Types to knock-out beyblades out of the stadium, but has great use in Defense-Type combinations due to the defensive grip it provides on the stadium, which decreases the chance of getting knocked-out of the stadium by various attack-type combos.

As a result, Rubber Semi-Flat is a must have for competitive bladers.
