Revolve (リボルブ, Riboribu) is a Performance Tip released as part of the Burst System. It debuted with the release of the B-36 Booster Rising Ragnaruk Gravity Revolve on April 2nd, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Starter Pack Roktavor R2 Gravity Revolve.
Revolve features a sharp tip of a small diameter surrounded by a free-spinning ring, akin to the Around Sharp Performance Tip from the Metal Fight Saga. The sharp tip of Revolve provides low friction with the stadium floor, resulting in high Stamina and Burst Defense properties. While the small diameter of the sharp tip may imply easy Destabilization, the wide diameter of the free-spinning ring helps maintain stability. The wide diameter of the ring also provides Revolve high procession time which is useful against Opposite-Spin and Mobile Stamina Combinations. Furthermore, when launched at an angle, the free-spinning ring of Revolve makes more contact with the stadium floor resulting in decent KO resistance, however said KO resistance still lags behind that of Orbit and Atomic due to the lower surface area and some Beyblades that are off center are easier to Burst.
In the current metagame, Revolve is best suited for Pure Stamina Combinations due to the release of Atomic. However, Revolve's spring lock is stronger than that of Atomic and Orbit's, allowing it to be a safer choice for Layers with weak teeth such as Deep Chaos.
Due to considerable manufacturing variations, Bladers must be careful when using this Tip. Some variations of Revolve do not spin freely as they should, and the disc becomes very stiff to tilt. Others have the disc pop out after significant usage. For competitive use, the most free-spinning one is ideal. The chances of obtaining one, however, are random.
Use in Stamina Combinations
Revolve can be put to use in the Stamina Combination (A Mold God Chip) Deep Chaos/Screw Trident 0/2/4/5/7 Glaive/Cross Revolve. The high Stamina of Deep Chaos/Screw Trident is further bolstered by 0/2/4/5/7 Glaive/Cross and the poor Burst resistance of the Layer is bolstered by the low friction of Revolve and its strong spring lock. This Combination is capable of Out Spinning almost all Same-Spin Combinations but is highly vulnerable to Attack Combinations.
Revolve features high Stamina and Burst Defense properties making it one of the best choices for Pure Stamina Combinations and Stationary Attack Combinations, capable of Out Spinning Same-Spin Atomic Combinations. However, with the release of Bearing and Eternal which can defeat Opposite-Spin Atomic Combinations, Revolve has become outclassed.
As such, Revolve is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to a blader's collection.
Differences in the Hasbro Version
Hasbro's Revolve has a weak spring lock akin to Takara Tomy's Bearing, causing it to provide a weaker fit compared to other Performance Tips such as Survive. Furthermore, Hasbro's Atomic and Orbit have stronger spring locks with comparable Stamina.
As such, Hasbro's Revolve is recommended for collection purposes only.
