Description of the Sword Driver
First released with the B-120 Buster Xcalibur 1′ Sword Starter as part of the Cho-Z Layer system on August 11th, 2018, Sword is an attack type Performance Tip.
Sword is a tall driver, featuring a wide six-pointed star tip made of metal, increasing the weight of this Performance Tip. This design can create fast and aggressive movements. However, metal has very low levels of friction, making flower patterns difficult to maintain. Furthermore, the wide contact surface combined with the low friction results in fairly unpredictable movement patterns and poor stamina potential. Therefore, this driver will make any combination difficult to control.
Furthermore, this Performance Tip features two sword-shaped protrusions, one on each side of the tip. In theory, those protrusions are meant to line up with the main contact point of the Xcalibur Layers and increase attack power. In reality, those protrusions are too small to have any impact on attack potential, creating a high scraping risk and poor LAD potential instead.
This Performance Tip can make a combination move around with speed due to its low levels of friction, but the lack of friction also make it difficult to control, making any combo behavior fairly unpredictable. Furthermore, the high scraping risk makes it even more difficult to use in attack type combinations.
Additionally, Sword is outclassed by its “dash” variant, Sword’, featuring increased burst resistance.
Therefore, Sword cannot be recommended.
