[Hasbro]  Bushin Ashindra A5 Testing and Discussion

Bushin Ashindra A5. 14 grams. Burst Rise.

Discs and Drivers were switched halfway through the tests.

As addition to the "classic allstars" I threw in Turbo Spryzen S4, the only tier 10 Bey according to Bladekid's new Hasbro ranking.

These are just some tests. I don't call any beys bad or good. Feel free to add Your testing results.

A5.4F.Br vs C3.4F.Br
A5: 0 Wins (0% Win rate)
C3: 10 OS (100% Win rate)

A5.4F.Br vs. B3.4F.Br
A5: 3 OS, 4 Draws (50% Win rate)
B3: 3 OS, 4 Draws (50% Win rate)

A5.0.At vs. G3.0.At
A5: 0 Wins (0% Win rate)
G3: 10 OS (100% Win rate)

A5.0.At vs SrS3.0.At (left)
A5: 2 OS (20% Win rate)
SrS3: 8 OS (80% Win rate)

A5.0.At vs tS4.0.At (right)
A5: 2 K.O., 3 OS (50% Win rate)
tS4: 2 K.O., 3 OS (50% Win rate)

Conclusion: As expected, A5 as a defense type Bey cant stand a chance against stamina Beys.

He seems to be on par stamina-wise with the best Defense Bey B3. This potential needs testing against attack types. Though A5 is lacking any gimmicks, he seems to have  tight slopes, which might help against attack type Beys.

As a defense type Bey he could achieve some recoil knockouts against tS4. His anti-attack potential needs further testing.

Setup:

I decided to compare Bushin Ashindra A5 to Turbo Spryzen S4. The tests I did were:
Bushin Ashindra A5 00Cross Survive Vs. Turbo Spryzen S4 00Cross Survive. Yes, I know, it’s survive. It’s the highest stamina driver I have, but this test will still tell which layer is better for this purpose. I did ten rounds.

Results:

Bushin Ashindra A5: 0%

Turbo Spryzen S4: 100% (7 OS’ 1 Burst 2 KO’s)

It was not even that close. Bushin Ashindra was outspun easily by Turbo Spryzen. It may have defense potential, which I will try to test later.

Bushin personally outclasses rick in Hasbro, but Ashindra’s teeth... ?

Rick? Also, it’s burst resistance isn’t very good, but it’s not awful.
Thank You, Rob. Bushin is really not very good vs. Stamina layers (or even balance).

As defense type it should perform better versus attackers. I am collecting some good attacking stuff right now, like V3 with Xtreme and start testing soon.
Ok so here are my first testing results for A5 vs. attack type beys.

Hasbro only. 10 iterations. A5 launched first, attack type Bey second. TT standard type stadium.

I chose the best attacking layer Valtryek V3 (tier 8 of 10 according to bladekids Tier list) and a veteran classic attacker Xcalius X3 (Tier 6).

A5.Hr.Kp-H vs. tV3.Z.X
A5 5 Outspins, 1 Burst (60%)
V3 1 Outspins, 3 KO (40%)

A5.Hr.Kp-H vs. tV3.Z.Hn
A5 7 Outspins (70%)
V3 3 KO (30%)

A5.Hr.Kp-H vs. tV3.Z.Z
A5 6 Outspins (60%)
V3 4 Outspin (40%)

A5.Hr.Kp-H vs. X3.00T.X
A5 2 Outspins, 1 Burst (30%)
X3 7 KO (70%)

A5.Hr.Kp-H vs. X3.00T.Hn
A5 6 Outspins (60%)
X3 4 KO (40%)

A5.Hr.Kp-H vs. X3.00T.Z
A5 3 Outspins (30%)
X3 2 Outspin, 5 KO (70%)

Conclusion: Bushin Ashindra A5 is not a good choice against attack type beyblades. Without having any gimmicks, it's often KO'd.
Update: I had to adjust the results after learning that bouncing back from the wall is still considered as KO.

Note that A5 was in Stock Combo. Tests with 00E.At will follow.

Probably rock. Also, I wouldn't suggest using the ashindra chip, use Valtryek as it's better in every way.
You mean the chip of Sword Valtryek V5? Well, the Ashindra chip did not have problems with bursting. The layer base is the problem. I assume with V5 chip it will also get knocked out.

Use Valtryek? Uh, interesting. I would use Ashindra cuz my Ashindra is super hecking tight 0~o different molds I guess

What about joker? When I get it I’ll see how tight it is.

It is tighter. Use Joker now instead.

Whatever works tbh. The good thing with rise is that the chips and how tight things are can be changed at will, so you can just see what works for you and go with it.
