No, like all the attack WD's, it's just recoily. :c Looks badass though Smile

You have some really amazing competitive parts there, by the way. I will do a mini list of them for fun, haha.

Minilist of good things and some other stuff that is long and rambly: (Click to View)

A better picture of Master/Kid Dragoon's WD would be nice, looks like Heavy Attack.

Oh, and as for the cwd free defense ring thing, you don't really *need* the plastic part of defense ring, there are plenty of other good options for that CWD metal part in terms of plastic parts.

I took a better picture of the Kid Dragoon - I didn't even notice it had a different WD, haha!

I will not, unfortunately, be testing the Twin Guard, given the rarity of this particular Blizzard Orthros - sorry mang!

The Gigars' tip does appear to be Semi-Flat, yes.

I took some pictures of my three different kinds of Dranzer S AR:
The only difference in them is that the Phantom Force's "wings" are joined by a thin strip of plastic, unlike the original mold(blue) and the red one.

Yep, that's heavy attack. I really must get around to writing the Attack WD's Article. Heavy Attack is the best of them, though it's still outclassed by 6/10 Heavy and 10 Balance, it *can* be used on compacts, though it has those recoil issues.

Your collection isn't "small" by any means, especially after Valentin's gift, haha!

Try out Blizzard Orthus's base some time, I'm curious as to how quick it moves.

Also, track down a tornado attack somehow, everyone should own one!

And with that, I take my leave - it's been an interesting ride, but one can only bang one's head against a wall so many times before they learn - and my head is mighty sore.

I did try out Blizzard Orthus' base, actually, right after I got it. It's considerably slower than any of my grip bases(Grip Base, Storm Grip, Fantom Grip, whatever Dragoon V's is called, and Customize Grip, along with Gaia Dragoon V's base).

I do really want a Tornado Attack quite a lot for my HMS and Plastics, but I'm not sure how realistic it is atm.

I also edited my earlier post with some things addressing your earlier questions, th!nk.

Unsurprising. How's the controllability? The tip shape reminds me of Gaia Dragoon (S/F series), which wasn't that fast, but was beloved by Japanese players in pre-tornado ridge times for the controllability. It was a nice base, but the pockets it had hanging down for the small metal balls were terrible for its LAD, so I am curious if Blizzard Orthrus's base is somewhat similar, perhaps an improvement upon it...
That said, being slower than Dragoon V's base means it's basically useless now we have tornado ridges.

Sadly, the last sets with them disappeared from ebay a few weeks back. Your best hope would be hunting one down on Y!JA or, more likely, second hand. They're quite delicate, though, I would suggest when you get it, filling the underside with something/reinforcing the walls from inside.

Shame about the Twin Guard, but I understand, haha.

As for the PF Dranzer S, thanks for that. Nonetheless, between the stronger material and that join there (which should fix a lot of the breakage issues of the part), it's still probably a very nice attack AR. The range would still be an issue, though.

@Benjo: haha, only one of them is in decent condition. The first one's AR was used for 3 battles and is chipped badly, the base is destroyed, one SP is missing (I must search for it), and the tip is rather heavily used, haha.

And with that, I take my leave - it's been an interesting ride, but one can only bang one's head against a wall so many times before they learn - and my head is mighty sore.

@th!nk: How would you go about reinforcing the underside of the TA stadium? Paper? Foam insulation? Something like that?

Honestly, I'm still working on that part of my plan, you would probably have a better idea than me.

Hah, no, I am a fan of OVER reinforcing things, perhaps about 3000 layers would do it.

I would probably start with duct tape in the corners, just to give it a little more structure directly, but I would look at something more solid than foam or paper as a filling, I'm still trying to work out what will have enough give not to damage parts if they hit the walls (though I guess that's not such a big deal), but is sturdy enough to prevent the stadium deforming/being pierced etc.

Probably something that will set in place so there are no voids, but won't be too heavy, and then I will probably put it on a sheet of like plywood or whatever.

Might get really into it and attach a spirit meter to it to make sure the stadium is level for tournaments, but that would require me to do things.

And with that, I take my leave - it's been an interesting ride, but one can only bang one's head against a wall so many times before they learn - and my head is mighty sore.

For internal reinforcement, I would definitely like to explore some sort of spray-delivered, expanding medium that dries into a solid or semi-solid like foam or caulk. Probably best to use some other plastic base or hasbro stadium for a testing environment though...

As to the spirit level and board mounting system, I think that leveling is a huge issue during outdoor play. Ground is never perfectly even, but when it is significantly tilted it can create real problems for attack types self KOing out the "down" side. Interestingly enough, the Zero-G Attack Stadium would appear to kind of solve this issue on its own, right?

Yes, I was considering something like that, I'm a bit worried about the chance of voids though.

Haha, that is true. But I currently use more rudimentary methods for finding level ground and check that stadia are level (generally it involves either a marble or a stamina type), but yeah, I'd like to attach a small spirit level for future use.

It's been a while since I've done any project like this, though, and I haven't quite figured out how I would attach the board to the stadium, as unless the medium itself clings to the stadium, there's very little surface are for attachment...

What I may do is just tape up my practice stadium on the outside edges of the walls so there are no cracks (this makes it illegal for standard play, but it's pretty far gone at the moment, honestly, fixing it would take a lot of work), and testing the concept out with that first.

And with that, I take my leave - it's been an interesting ride, but one can only bang one's head against a wall so many times before they learn - and my head is mighty sore.
