Support Part - Defense Ring is a Attack Ring released as part of the Magnacore System. It debuted with the release of Voltaic Ape.

Description

Without a doubt, Defense Ring is the prized part of Voltaic Ape. It is hugely popular for Zombie customizations, and with good reason: it has notches that can steal spin from contact below the weight disk, it doesn’t interfere with the round perimeters of Wide Survivor and Wide Defense, the location and shape protects against Upper Attack, and it has excellent life after death, possibly the best of any Support Part.

The relatively compact shape also means it finds secondary use in Compacts using Driger V2 ’s Customize Change Base.

Use in Defensive Zombie Customization

This combination is the standard Grip-Based Defender, a Zombie customization using the grip from Wolborg 2’s SG (Bearing Ver. 2) to withstand hard hits, while being able to steal spin, which counteracts the poor Survival of the tip. Defense Ring enhances this combination, giving additional protection against Upper Attack, and offering excellent Life After Death. In addition, this combination can be launched aggressively to score KO’s against opponents with very weak Defense who might otherwise outspin it. As such, it is easily one of the most powerful Defense customizations in the entire plastic generation.

  • AR: War Lion (Galeon)
  • WD: Wide Defense
  • SG: Left SG (Bearing Version 2) (Wolborg 2)
  • SP: Defense Ring (Voltaic Ape)
  • BB: Customize Grip Base (Dragoon V2)

Use In Zombie Customization

Defense Ring’s excellent life after death and Spin Stealing abilities make it one of the best choices for Zombie Customizations. The use of Burning Kerberous’ SG gives excellent stamina and stability, alongside decent ability to take hits when coupled with the round perimeter of the Beyblade. This combination is almost impossible to outspin without a specialized Zombie-Killing customization, though it does suffer from a weakness to Attack types.

  • AR: Twin Horn (Gabriel)
  • WD: Wide Survivor
  • SG: Neo-Left SG (Double Bearing Core) (Burning Kerberous)
  • SP: Defense Ring (Voltaic Ape)
  • BB: Customize Bearing Base (Burning Kerberous)

Use In Compact Customization

Though Metal Change Base (Driger S) is generally preferred due to smaller size and lower height, the extra weight of Customize Change Base and Defense Ring, and generally less-aggressive tip, means they can still find their place amongst the best compact combinations. Defense Ring also helps compensate for the extra height, by giving some measure of protection against Upper Attack.

  • AR: War Lion (Galeon)
  • WD: 10 Heavy
  • SG: Neo-Right SG (HMC)
  • SP: Defense Ring (Voltaic Ape)
  • BB: Customize Change Base (Driger V2)
