Sharp Wide Defense or SWD is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-123 Random Booster Vol. 9 Fusion Hades on December 28, 2011.


Sharp Wide Defense is a Balance-oriented Performance Tip first released with Fusion Hades and is an upgraded version of Defense Sharp (DS). As its name states, SWD consists of WD fused with S. While it retains the same appearance as WD, it has a hole at it's bottom. The hole reveals the Sharp Tip protruding upwards. This is similar in manner to DS, abeit SWD's surrounding ring is wider. SWD also bears an uncanny resemblance to EWD, minus the free-spinning bearing. This release of SWD is translucent red in color.

In terms of overall performance, SWD is a rather good Performance Tip for Stamina Combinations, as it does well on combos that use Fusion Wheels such as Scythe, Phantom, and Duo, although failing on certain combos; especially against combos that use WD, as well as on combos using Performance Tips of tall-height like TH170. It is also viable to scrapes on BD145, similar to WD and EDS, but appears equal to WD on other occasions.


Overall, SWD is a good Stamina tip, able to hold its ground against other Stamina Combinations.
