Universe-SPM is a Performance Tip released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the SpeedStorm System. It debuted in western countries with the release of the SpeedStorm Starter Pack Curse Satomb S6 Hurricane Universe-SPM.
Like its normal counterpart, it is a Defense Type Performance Tip that features a free spinning wide hemispherical ball tip with a free spinning outer ring. In theory, the wide ball tip would increase Knock-Out (KO) Defense by having greater surface area and friction. However, in practice the free spin of the wide ball tip reduces KO Defense. The free spinning outer ring is intended to keep the Universe-SPM combination upright after being knocked off balance, as well as acting as brakes to prevent Knock-Outs.
Due to the large surface area of the wide ball tip, Universe-SPM will typically circle around the ridge of the stadium when hard launched, resulting in a Self Knock-Out. However, this issue is not present in larger stadiums such as the Beystadium DB. This weakness means Universe-SPM should only be launched softly in smaller stadiums, and use against Same-Spin Opponents should be avoided.
