Description of High Taper
First released in the BX-21 Hells Chain Deck Set as part of the Xtreme Gear Sports system on November 2nd, 2023, High Taper (or HT) is a balance type Bit. It is the “High” variant of the Taper Bit ; “HT” is 1mm taller than Taper.
Like Taper, “HT” features a narrow circular flat tip with a shallow indentation. The tip angles upwards from the centre, creating a second contact point.
This design is intended to create enough mobility to ride the X-Line, while retaining a decent amount of stamina compared to attack type Bits. Furthermore, the shaft of this Bit is wider, resulting in increased burst resistance.
In reality, “HT” does exactly what it was intended for. It truly delivers a balance type identity, by creating aggressive movements while offering more control and stamina than pure attack type Bits such as Flat or Low Flat. However, “HT”does not feature the speed and aggressiveness of such tips.
Overall, “HT” features enough mobility to be used with attack oriented Blades, and its high stamina potential, compared to Bits such as Flat or Low Flat, make it a safer option in attack type combinations.
Being a true jack of all trades, master of none, High Taper successfully delivers the attributes of a balance type Bit. As such, it is a great alternative to pure attack drivers when more control and stamina are required.
Furthermore, Taper being one of the best available options for players willing to use attack type combinations in a competitive environment, its high variant may be used as well when a taller height is required.
Therefore, High Taper is a must have in any Beyblade collection.
