[Unanswered]  Is the Flare base any good?

Flare may have heavy weight due to those balls sliding around, but it seems to have less recoil for attacks (unlike say, Crash Ragnaruk) for it to be useful for attack/balance combos
I'm sure I saw crazy aries post about flare base having decent downward attack potential in some combo like FD.10P.Vl'.
Um I think Flare Ashura Vanguard Br might have some potential.
