When launched in mint condition the first set of six spikes will create a mildly aggressive pattern at speeds akin to [[Performance Tip - TA03: Blow|Blow]], albeit without the stamina due to the greater friction the rubber has. Due to how tall the first six teeth are and the somewhat brittle nature of the rubber in the Takara Tomy release, the first set of teeth will break off relatively quickly.

When this tip loses teeth it does become shorter as a result, however the resulting height change is too minimal to cause any noticeable effect on attacks in battle, it can help in getting under the opponent and destabilizing it in some occasions but it is rare and does not make up for the numerous issues a worn '''Variable''' has. However, despite being outclassed, a worn '''Variable''' could be used for attack customization due to its fast speed and ability to get under the opponent due to its height.

Hasbro's '''Variable '''has a much softer rubber, this makes this version faster on the first six spikes, having a speed in between [[Performance Tip - Accel|Accel]] and [[Performance Tip - Zephyr|Zephyr]], and makes it far harder to wear down. However that also means that when it does wear down to the second set of teeth the control problems will be even worse than Takara Tomy's '''Variable'''. Despite the softer rubber however, an unworn '''Variable''' settles to the center far too quickly for effective Attack Combinations.
In the Hasbro release of '''Variable''', the rubber is of a much softer kind, this makes this version faster on the first six spikes, having a speed in between [[Performance Tip - TA01: Accel|Accel]] and [[Performance Tip - TB02: Zephyr|Zephyr]], and it's also far harder to wear down. However that also means that when it does wear down to the second set of teeth the control problems will be even worse than the Takara Tomy version. Despite this, the Hasbro '''Variable''' is an excellent alternative to [[Performance Tip - TA05: Xtreme|Xtreme]] if one is unable to obtain one or finds [[Performance Tip - TA05: Xtreme|Xtreme]] too fast to control.

Latest revision as of 16:23, March 15, 2019

Variable (ヴァリアブル, Variaburu) is a Performance Tip released as part of the Burst System. It debuted with the release of the B-34 Starter Victory Valkyrie Boost Variable on April 2nd, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Starter Pack Valtryek V2 Boost Variable.

DescriptionEdit

Variable features a rubber tip, made up of two sets of rubber spikes, that begins at standard height. The spikes are meant to wear down and break off with use so unlike most other rubber tips, Variable will become more aggressive instead of less aggressive over time.

When launched in mint condition the first set of six spikes will create a mildly aggressive pattern at speeds akin to Blow, albeit without the Stamina due to the greater friction the rubber has. Due to how tall the first six teeth are and the somewhat brittle nature of the rubber in the Takara Tomy release, the first set of teeth will break off relatively quickly.

When launched after the first set of teeth have given way to the second set of fourteen spikes, Variable's speed increases remarkably, becoming as fast or even faster than Xtreme, due to the now increased surface area and diameter. However, that same speed and diameter increase makes Variable incredibly difficult to control at this stage as banking is difficult to maintain, Self-Knock-Outs become common and its Stamina worsens. Due to the greater number of spikes and their shorter length, Variable does not wear out as quickly at this stage. Of the stages, this stage of Variable is considered the best.

When the second set of spikes break off, what's left is a solid base of rubber. At this point Variable's speed increases further but the aforementioned control and Stamina issues become even worse, having trouble even staying on the Tornado Ridge of the stadium and losing spin too quickly to perform any meaningful attacks when it begins to slow down.

When this tip loses teeth, it does become shorter as a result, granting Attack combinations destabilization potential. Furthermore, due to the wide base, Variable has relatively high Life-After-Death when worn down, making it a somewhat safer choice against Spin-Equalization combinations.

Use in Attack CombinationsEdit

Variable can be put to use in the Attack Combination Winning Valkyrie 0/2/4/5/7 Bump/Meteor/Vortex Variable (Worn). The high speed of Variable increases the Burst Attack potential of the Winning Valkyrie Layer's recoil and the 0/2/4/5/7 Bump/Meteor/Vortex Disc and Frame's weight. However, this Combination is hard to control due to the worn Variable's speed and wide diameter.

OverallEdit

Despite being one of the fastest tips in the game, Variable's lack of control and Stamina makes it outclassed by Xtreme; which is able to better maintain a banking pattern while holding comparable speed, Hold; which is better able to stay within the Tornado Ridge and avoid Self-Knock-Outs while holding comparable speed, and Accel; which has far more control and Stamina.

Despite these issues however, the high speed, strong Attack potential, destabilization potential given by the lower height and the Life-After-Death potential when worn make Variable a welcome addition to any blader's collection.

Differences in the Hasbro VersionEdit

Hasbro's Variable has a much softer rubber, this makes this version faster on the first six spikes, having a speed in between Accel and Zephyr, and makes it far harder to wear down. However that also means that when it does wear down to the second set of teeth the control problems will be even worse than Takara Tomy's Variable. Despite the softer rubber however, an unworn Variable settles to the center far too quickly for effective Attack Combinations.

This along with the aforementioned control loss from wear means that Hasbro's Variable is recommended for collection purposes only.
