Description of Metal Drift
First released in the B-190 Beyblade Dynamite Battle All-in-One Set as part of the Dynamite Battle system on October 2nd, 2021, Metal Drift is the metal lock version of the Drift Performance Tip. See the complete article on Drift here.
Compared to its predecessor, Metal Drift is heavier and has better burst resistance. Drift is still one of the best performance tips in the Beyblade Burst generation.
Therefore Metal Drift is a must have in any player’s collection.
Important notes about metal drivers
A metal driver features a lock made of metal instead of plastic. The metal adds weight and a stronger spring, which in theory increases burst resistance. In reality, the metal tabs tend to slide over the layer’s teeth, potentially damaging the teeth in the process. Furthermore, in order to limit the unusual wear metal tabs are causing, the tabs have been shortened, which decreases burst resistance.
However, metal drivers can be useful and safely assembled on the Bahamut and Kerbeus DB cores, which are both featuring rubber slopes instead of plastic teeth. With these two DB cores you can benefit from metal drivers weight and burst resistance without any risk of damage or wear on your layer.
WARNING : Metal performance tips can cause damage and unusual wear on the layer’s teeth, therefore we strongly recommend to avoid using those drivers, unless you have the following options :
1) The safest way to use a metal driver is on the rubber slopes of the Bahamut and Kerbeus DB cores.
2) The other option is to use them on the double-chassis from the Superking system. When combined to a double-chassis, the wear still seem to be a bit unusual and premature, but it remains very limited compared to single chassis and all the traditional layers from the Beyblade Burst Generation.
