Wide Defense is a Performance Tip released as part of the Hybrid Wheel System. It debuted with the release of Earth Eagle 145WD in September 2009.

Description

Weight: 0.7 gram Full Width: 15.53 mm Tip Width: 14.17 mm Full Height: 8.92 mm Tip Height: 6.75 mm Tip Angle: 40°

Wide Defense, as its name implies is one of the widest of the “Defense” series of Performance Tips (D, SD, WD, PD, EWD) besides BWD.

This brings numerous advantages, but also some disadvantages when compared to the other “Defense” Performance Tips, specifically D. The advantages include its ability for abnormally long procession times due to its massive width that reaches the edge of the Performance Tip's perimeter. This allows it to wobble at a significantly larger angle for a longer period of time than D, and at a much lower spin rate. However, depending on the position of the Beyblade using WD and the spin rate of the opponent, this can be disadvantageous because of how easy it becomes to knock over the precessing WD custom. This low spin rate towards the end of the battle is created because in the process of wobbling at such a large angle, more friction is made with the stadium floor, thus decreasing its Stamina. Nevertheless, this is more often an advantage than it is a disadvantage.

Newer parts such as CS, EDS and B:D have overshadowed WD to some degree: CS and EDS due to their ability to be paired with the popular BD145 Spin Track without scraping, and B:D because of its height and even longer procession times, but WD is still one of the best pure Stamina Bottoms available. However, when selecting high Spin Tracks such as TH170 and 230, WD's tendency to wobble at larger angles should be kept in mind, as its extreme procession can often become problematic.

Although the name suggests defensive characteristics, WD does not possess any inherent defensive qualities. However, its proficiency can be increased significantly when facing left-spin Attackers through the utilization of the Weak Shooting technique.

Use in Stamina customization

WD is arguably the best of the “Defense” series of Spin Tracks, and its effectiveness can be utilized in the custom Phantom Cancer/Cygnus W145WD.
