Description of Hold Driver
First released with the B-63 Booster Beast Behemoth Heavy Hold as part of the Dual Layer system on November 12th, 2016, Hold is an attack type Performance Tip.
This Driver has a wide free-spinning disc with a flat tip in its center. The surface of the disc is ridged, resulting in sudden accelerations when the disc makes contact with the stadium floor.
The wide free-spinning disc allows the combination to move with speed, making Hold a fast Performance Tip. Furthermore, the ridged surface of the disc creates enough friction to keep the combo inside the stadium and catch the Tornado Ridge.
Therefore, Hold was often used to counter Tornado Stall combinations, providing the speed to chase and knock the opposing Beyblade out.
Additionally, the wide shape of the tip prevents the combo from creating flower patterns. The wide, free-spinning disc of Hold offers little control, making this Driver difficult to use in traditional attack type combinations.
However, the wide disc can keep the combination stable and its free-spinning nature creates high spin-equalizing potential as well as decent LAD (Life-After-Death). Therefore, Hold was considered as a top tier option in spin-stealing combinations.
Finally, as it is often the case with free-spinning components, performances will vary from a copy to another. Copies of Hold with limited free-spin are usually faster and capable of creating Tornado Stalls. Copies with high free-spin have less speed, and more stamina potential. These copies are usually unable to reach the Tornado Ridge, moving around in circles instead.
Final Thoughts on Hold Driver
Intended to be an attack type Performance Tip, Hold is best used in spin-stealing combinations. Its wide tip results in limited control, making it a poor option in attack type combos.
This Performance Tip used to be a top tier component during the Dual Layer system, but it has been outclassed by several options, such as Xplosion or Destroy’.
Therefore, Hold is not a must have for competitive players, but it can be a nice addition for collectors interested in the Dual Layer and God Layer systems.
