Wide Ball or WB is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Hybrid Wheel System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-30 Starter Rock Leone 145WB on March 28, 2009, and in Western countries with the release of the BB-30 Starter Pack Rock Leone 145WB in August 2010.

Description

Weight: 0.7 grams Full Width: 15.73 mm Tip Width: 8.95 mm Full Height: 9.05 mm

Wide Ball (WB), as the name implies, is simply Ball with a larger surface. As a result, Wide Ball outclasses Ball in terms of defense. The greater surface area creates more movement compared to Ball. This is disadvantageous against Attack Type combinations, as it increases the chance of a knockout.

Overall

Wide Ball was once preferred for Defense Type combinations, but has since been outclassed by numerous Performance Tips such as Coating Spike (CS) and Rubber Spike (RS).

As such, Wide Ball is recommended for collection purposes only.
