Description of Gear Flat
First released in the BX-23 Phoenix Wing 9-60GF Starter as part of the Xtreme Gear Sports system on December 10th, 2023, Gear Flat (or GF) is an attack type Bit. It is the “Gear” variant of Flat (F). A “Gear” variant means that the Bit feature extended Gears, completely covering the tip itself.
“GF”, like Flat, features a round, flat tip with a shallow indentation. This design is intended to create aggressive movements, helping the combination to reach the X-Line and perform the Xtreme Dash. This design also results in poor stamina potential. Additionally, the shaft of this Bit is wider, resulting in increased burst resistance.
Furthermore, compared to Flat, the extended Gears of “GF” increase the width of the tip by 0,9 mm. The increased contact surface creates more agressive movements, increasing pure attack power at the detriment of stamina.
Moreover, these extended Gears make it easier for the combo to ride the X-Line, and also increase the Xtreme Dash speed and power. However, the sudden acceleration drains stamina. This makes “GF” more agressive, but also more unpredictable and difficult to control than Flat.
In reality, the “GF” combination will usually perform one fast and powerful Xtreme-Dash. However, it will struggle to ride the X-Line with speed more than once. This makes the Gear Flat combination risky, since it mostly relies on a few heavy strikes early in the battle.
Furthermore, the increased speed of the Xtreme-Dash increases self-K.O. risk significantly.
Wear and Tear
It is worth noting that the repeated contacts between Gear Flat and the X-Line can cause rapid, unusual wear on this Bit. Therefore, both competitive and non-competitive players may need to have multiple copies of “GF” at their disposal.
Featuring poor stamina and offering little control, the sole purpose of this Bit is to burst or knock the opponent out as fast as possible.
Gear Flat is a strong attack type Bit, which highly increases the combination’s attack potential and the Xtreme Dash power. However, its unpredictable behavior and the fairly high self K.O. risk can make it a risky option for competitive players.
