Beyblade X : What are the differences between Hasbro and Takara Tomy models ?

In this article, you’ll be informed of the differences between Takara Tomy and Hasbro Beyblade X models. This article will be updated if we find any new information.

Beyblade Materials :

The plastic used in Takara Tomy and Hasbro models is exactly the same. The metal used is slightly different, but so far, the Takara Tomy and Hasbro models at our disposal look the same and also have similar weights.

Beyblade Performances :

So far, we’ve discovered two differences with enough samples and data to prove it. We’ll show these differences on our YouTube channel, Beyblade Academy, as soon as we’ll have the right to publish the video :

  • The Ratchet has a tighter Bit Lock mechanism on Hasbro Beyblade X models. This means that it is more difficult for players to insert the Bit in the Ratchet, as well as pulling it off the Beyblade. This is surely for safety reasons, since this will prevent the combination from “bursting” because of a loose Bit.

    This kind of Burst Finish is not common in Takara Tomy Beyblade X. With Hasbro Beyblade X models however, this kind of Burst Finish may be nearly impossible to achieve. Furthermore, when a Hasbro combination is bursting, the Bit will probably remain stuck to the Ratchet due to this tight lock mechanism.
  • The spinning part located underneath the Gear Chip has a smoother spin on Takara Tomy models. On Hasbro models, this spinning has a strong “notched” feeling, preventing the Gear Chip spinning part to spin smoothly. In theory, this could affect performances, since this spinning part has been removed entirely on Unique Line (UX) models, in order to improve spin velocity and overall performances.

We are thoroughly testing the models at our disposal, and we are currently investigating other differences. We’ll update this article if we make any new discovery, with enough samples and data at our disposal.
