Raid Luinor L6 3A-D Destroyer-SPM, stylized as Raid Lúinor L6 3A-D Destroyer-SPM, is an Attack Type Beyblade released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the SpeedStorm System. It was released in western countries as a SpeedStorm Starter Pack for USD$9.99 in the United States.
Storm Chip - Luinor L6
- Main article: Storm Chip - Luinor L6
Hasbro's Luinor L6 is a left-spin Storm Chip that features a dragon head representing the Storm Chip's namesake. Luinor L6 has a standard weight for Hasbro Storm Chips, but has average Burst Resistance. Thus Luinor L6 is outclassed by other left-spin Storm Chips such as Devolos D6 and Spryzen S6.
Ring - Raid
- Main article: Ring - Raid
Hasbro's Raid is a Left-Spin Attack Type Ring that features two dragon heads followed by points serving as the Ring's main contact points. Behind the dragon heads are slopes intended to provide Upper Attack - however these slopes are shorter and notably less steep than those of its Takara Tomy counterpart, Rage. Another notable difference is the lack of metal on the dragon heads, which were separate pieces riveted onto Rage; Raid is instead a single plastic piece. Furthermore, like other Hasbro Rings, Raid is hollow on its underside, and these factors combined results in a very light Energy Layer comparable to SwitchStrike System Layers in terms of weight. Due to its light weight, Raid is often thrown around by its own recoil.
A major change is the lack of the 3A Chassis that Takara Tomy's Rage worked in tandem with to create powerful contact points for Upper Attack. Hasbro's equivalent, the 3A-D Forge Disc, is unable to effectively provide any additional contact points for Raid, rendering it ineffectual for Attack Combinations. As a result, Raid is outclassed by its predecessors such as Luinor L4 and the Zone Layer Base, which have superior shapes for Attack Combinations.
Forge Disc - 3A-D
- Main article: Forge Disc - 3A-D
3A-D is a Forge Disc based on Takara Tomy’s 3A Chassis. As such, it is intended to match the shape of the Raid Ring. 3A-D is composed of a metal core and a plastic perimeter riveted to it, similar to Takara Tomy's Drake. The design is very jagged and spiky, having four main plastic contact points, two of which point downward. The shape of the metal synergizes with the Longinus/Luinor series of Layers.
Despite its aggressive shape, 3A-D suffers from an extremely light weight that is similar to Discs released during the Dual Layer System. In addition, 3A-D does not protrude enough on most Layers to provide use of its contact points. Unlike the 3A Chassis it is based on, 3A-D does not effectively provide Raid or any other Layer with additional Attack power. Due to its lack of compatibility with Disc Frames, it is also unable to improve its weight and weight distribution.
