Ultimate Reboot (アルティメットリブート, Arutimetto Ribūto) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It debuted in Japan as a CoroCoro Exclusive in September 2017 and was later released with the B-102 Booster Twin Nemesis 3Hit Ultimate Reboot on January 27th, 2018. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Pro Series Starter Pack Judgement Joker 0Glaive Ultimate Reboot Sen.
Ultimate Reboot, like its predecessor Reboot, features an automatic tip change gimmick, akin to Final Drive from Metal Fight Beyblade, with a round tip like a downsized Accel and a rubber tip like a mix between Zephyr and Xtreme.
Early in battle, the Centrifugal Force of the Beyblade's spin will force two spring loaded tabs outward which will in turn force the round tip out. As the tip's diameter is smaller than Blow's, the resulting movement pattern is only mildly aggressive, having trouble reaching the Tornado Ridge. While a small diameter would imply ease of control, the height of the tip means that an Ultimate Reboot-based Combination can become easily Destabilized like Blow in this state.
Later in battle, the drop in Centrifugal Force will allow the tabs to retract along with the round tip, creating contact with the wider rubber tip. In theory this tip change is meant to create a last minute burst of Attack power, but in practice the low spin velocity will make poor hits and the contact with the rubber will reduce Stamina when it is most important. While Ultimate Reboot does retract sooner than its predecessor Reboot to have greater spin velocity, Xtreme has greater speed within the same time frame with similar Stamina to Ultimate Reboot and creates stronger attacks earlier in battle.
While Ultimate Reboot is a genuine improvement for Attack over its predecessor, it still suffers from slow speeds early in battle and is outclassed by Xtreme overall. And with the use of rubber, Ultimate Reboot does not have the niche Tornado Stalling potential Reboot has either.
As such, Ultimate Reboot is recommended for collection purposes only.
