Description of Variant Spriggan Convert High Hold’ 1S
Variant Spriggan Convert High Hold’ 1S is a right-spin attack type combination, released with the B-186 Random Booster Vol. 26 as part of the Dynamite Battle system on June 26th, 2021.
While released as part of the Dynamite Battle system, this Beyblade is actually a Superking Layer model. This means it does not have any Armor, Blade or DB Core, and it is not compatible with High and Low Modes. However, the Single Chassis 1S allows the use of a Forge Disc.
The High Hold’ Performance Tip is hard to control, its wide tip making flower patterns impossible to perform. However, High Hold’ is a stable Driver, able to create decent spin-steal combination. Furthermore, High Hold’ tall height mitigates the Convert Forge Disc scraping risk.
Therefore, this stock combination does not behave like an attack type. It can move in wide circles, sometimes creating sudden accelerations after striking the opposing Beyblade.
Finally, the Variant Ring lacks weight, resulting in poor defense and stamina potential.
This stock combination is not coherent, and it is outclassed by most of the regular releases from the Dynamite Battle system, but some of its components can be interesting for collectors. For example, this Beyblade is the only release featuring the High Hold’ Performance Tip.
Ring : Variant
Variant is a right-spin defense type Ring featuring a circular shape and 12 protrusions along its perimeter. These protrusions act as blades meant to create continuous strikes and repel the opposing Beyblade.
In reality, these blades are not agressive enough to create real attack potential. Furthermore, the light weight of this Ring creates poor stamina and defense potential.

Superking Chip : Spriggan
Spriggan is a good Chip from the Superking Layer system. It features an integrated Metal Chip Core, increasing its weight.
Like Diabolos, this Chip is dual-spin, allowing players to use it with both right-spin and left-spin Rings.
Overall, the increased weight and the dual-spin mechanism of Spriggan make it one of the best Superking Chips available.

Chassis : 1S
1S (or 1 Stamina) is a Single Chassis, meaning that it allows the use of a Forge Disc in the combination.
This Chassis is stamina oriented, featuring a well balanced weight distribution.
During the Dynamite Battle and Burst Ultimate systems, 1S was still used in spin-stealing combinations at a competitive level in Japan. It was combined with the World Ring, the Diabolos Superking Chip, Illegal Forge Disc, and Metal Drift or Drift Performance Tips.

Forge Disc : Convert
Convert has a four-sided shape, featuring a non removable plastic part. This Forge Disc has a gimmick ; the plastic part can be moved to switch between two different modes : “Normal Mode” and “Imbalanced Mode”.
When it was released in 2019, Convert was one of the heaviest Forge Discs available. Its heavy weight made it a fairly popular option in attack type combinations. However, it has been heavily outclassed by several Forge Discs from the Superking, Dynamite Battle and Burst Ultimate systems.

Performance Tip : High Hold’
High Hold’ is an attack type Performance Tip. It is the High and Dash variant of Hold 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.
Intended to be an attack type Performance Tip, High Hold’ is best used in spin-stealing combinations. Its wide tip results in limited control, making it a poor option in attack type combos.

How to improve Variant Spriggan Convert High Hold’ 1S
Variant Spriggan Convert High Hold’ 1S is best used against other combinations from the Superking Layer system.
However, it can be improved by replacing the Convert Forge Disc with options from the Dynamite Battle and Burst Ultimate systems, such as Illegal, Fortress, Over, etc. Nonetheless, the light weight of the Variant Ring will result in poor performances. If available, the World Ring is a much better option, especially when combined with the dual-spin Spriggan Superking Chip.
Furthermore, Performance Tips such as Drift, Mobius or Bearing Mobius can be used instead of High Hold’. These changes can improve the combination’s performances in opposite-spin battles.
Finally, High Hold’ can be a decent option when used in a friendly environment. Its taller height make it easier to use with combinations from the Dynamite Battle and Burst Ultimate systems. This Driver creates decent spin-steal potential, but it cannot be recommended in traditional attack type combinations.
In the current meta-game, only Spriggan and the 1S Single Chassis can find use in a competitive combination. These components can be combined with the World Ring, Illegal Forge Disc, and Metal Drift/Drift Performance Tip.
This combination is popular in Japan, although the Diabolos Superking Chip is usually preferred. The World Spriggan Illegal Drift 1S combo can be used with great success in spin-stealing combinations, against Blades such as Vanish, Wind, Dynamite + F Gear etc.
Final Thoughts on Variant Spriggan Convert High Hold’ 1S
Variant Spriggan Convert High Hold’ 1S is not a strong stock combination. Several components featured in this combination are outclassed by other options from the Dynamite Battle and Burst Ultimate systems. Therefore, it cannot be recommended to competitive players.
However, this Beyblade is the only model featuring the High Hold’ Performance Tip, making it a nice addition for collectors.
