Spryzen Spread Fusion, known as Spriggan Spread Fusion (スプリガン・スプレッド・フュージョン, Supurigan Supureddo Fyūjon) in Japan, is a Balance Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System. It was released as a DX Starter in Japan on July 18th, 2015 for 2200円 and was later released in western countries as a part of the Spryzen & Odax Dual Pack.
Energy Layer - Spryzen
Main article: Energy Layer - Spryzen
Spryzen features three prominent bumps on each side of it, two of them getting their shape from the double claw-like design created by the colored plastic underneath the transparent casing. This means that its weight is mostly focused in the center and in a sort of pendulum with two arms spread out, generating some Flywheel Effect. However, its overall weight is among the lowest in all Energy Layers, below the average of 8.0 grams.
The teeth underneath its core are in ascending order, the third one being the tallest, with a very small fourth tooth at the end. This implies that the harder it gets hit, the harder it is to Burst, unless the third tooth is forcibly skipped over.
This Energy Layer is a "jack of all trades, master of none": while it isn't Top-Tier in any format and was always second to Valkyrie upon release, it delivers surprisingly strong hits against Combinations that are usually solid. It can be effective whether it is on a Mobile Combination on a Performance Tip like Accel, or a mostly Stationary Combination in the middle of the stadium on Performance Tips like Defense or Survive. However, its use is risky and fades away in comparison to more reliable Top-Tier Combinations. In other words, while it has its lucky moments, Spryzen is unable to deliver a consistent performance, unlike Energy Layers that are much more aggressive like Valkyrie, Amaterios and Xcalibur.
Forge Disc - Spread
Main article: Forge Disc - Spread
Spread is a completely circular Forge Disc, featuring a smooth perimeter and underside only interrupted by four small bumps located beneath the prongs, as well as several stylized blade designs on top. As with all Forge Discs, the letter representing the Forge Disc, in this case, S, is present on top of the prongs that fit into the Energy Layer. Spread has a significant amount of Outward Weight Distribution, and a relatively thin and aerodynamic shape, making it a viable choice for Stamina Combinations. Depending on which Performance Tip is used, Spread can also provide the combo with some Life After Death as it will roll along the stadium floor and give the Combination a few extra rotations after falling over, which can be crucial for Out Spinning an opponent.
For some time after its release, Spread was very useful in Stamina Combinations due to its weight distribution and its fair weight. However, as Bladers now have a wider array of competitively viable Forge Discs to choose from, Spread has fallen out of use compared to options such as Gravity and Knuckle.
Performance Tip - Fusion
Main article: Performance Tip - Fusion
Standing at a standard height for Burst Beyblades, Fusion is a Performance Tip with a flat base that has a small sharp tip protruding in its center, similar to the Flat Sharp Performance Tip from Metal Fight Beyblade. Like the latter, it tries to perform well as a Balance Type but fails to provide great Attack movement or the stability and Stamina required for the other types of Combinations. For those reasons, Fusion is unable to do better or even as good as all other Performance Tips specialized in their Combination Type, therefore it is never used competitively.
