Weight (ウエイト, Ueito) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy and Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-59 Starter Zillion Zeus Infinity Weight on September 17th, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Starter Pack Zeutron Z2 Infinity Weight.

Description

Weight features a ball shaped tip made of metal, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Metal Ball Performance Tip, surrounded by a plastic ridge.

Like Metal Ball, the metal tip is meant to decrease friction with the stadium floor and improve Stability and Knock-Out Resistance by lowering the center of balance with its weight and the plastic ridge is meant to provide Life-After-Death with its smooth perimeter.

In practice however, the shape and diameter of the ball creates a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in battle if hard launched, bringing the Beyblade close to the Tornado Ridge. Due to the low friction of the metal, a Beyblade in this state becomes much easier to Knock-Out. A secondary weakness is the plastic ridge, its low positioning means that it is easy for it to contact the stadium floor which exacerbates the aforementioned issue and drains Stamina.

While Weight's sheer weight can improve Knock-Out Defense, it's mitigated by the low friction of metal and rarity of Knock-Outs in the Burst metagame.

Overall

While the metal does give this Performance Tip less friction and therefore more Stamina in theory, in practice its movement pattern and poor Stability makes it outclassed by other Performance Tips such as Revolve, Atomic and Orbit. Although, Weight can still act as a somewhat suitable replacement due to its high weight.

As such, Weight is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to a blader's collection.
