PROS

The tops come equipped with wide flat bases and sharp tips that protrude right down the middle so that, when you launch these bad boys straight down into the stadium, the protrusions are able to keep the tops stable and prevent stamina loss. 

CONS

The Beyblades are not necessarily easy to put together. 

OUR VERDICT

The dual-rail system that Beyblade Burst Turbo Slingshock Rail Rush Battle Set Game is using will let you propel the 'blades across these rails and into the arena, creating pretty epic collisions. You can also switch between Ring mode and Slingshock mode.

The tower's a bit overpriced. 

OUR VERDICT

Beyblade Burst Evolution Switchstrike Battle Tower enables multi-tiered battles. You can engage in a duel, then flip the stadium over and unleash a battle royale mode, pitting 4 players each other. Each has mode its own rules, with the 5-point gameplay system offering almost endless possibilities.

PROS

When you choose the Battle Arena mode, the Beyblade's knock-out defence is improved. With increased friction as well as expanded surface area, when the top is struck, the 'blade makes contact with the floors, forcing it upright and preventing knock-outs.

CONS

The QR code is too small.

OUR VERDICT

Beyblade BEY Riptide Blast Set comes equipped with a power gauge. Using this gauge, kids will have the ability to measure the strength with which they launched the top. Owing to this feature, they'll be able to measure progress and compare results.

PROS

Aside from its somewhat elliptical shape, the top increases the weight of its six blades, creating a high outward weight distribution. As a result, this Beyblade boasts above-average stamina retention and improved burst resistance.

CONS

The top is not the most popular one. 

OUR VERDICT

Zillion Zeus B-59 is the most relentless and durable top with a launcher. With its elliptical shape, two Zs, and two faces, the top looks blinding. An excellent top for balance combinations, this Beyblade will ensure epic long-duration action.

PROS

The plastic perimeter creates a virtual skirt that makes its circumference smooth and perfectly circular. Contributing high LAD (life after death), this top ensures that its stamina combination is able to outspin the enemy. 

CONS

The launcher is not very sturdy. 

OUR VERDICT

Despite being stamina type, Phantazus P2 is an aggressive top that will give you an advantage early into the battle. Also, this is easily one of the more attractive 'blades, with its interchangeable parts enabling 5000+ possible combinations.

Beyblade Burst Turbo Slingshock Rail Rush Battle

Intense Head-to-Head Battles

Beyblade Burst Turbo Slingshock Rail Rush Battle Set Game is not the biggest change from the previous battle set, as you've probably already guessed. Using the dual-rail system, you'll be propelling the tops through the rails and into the battle ring, creating intense head-to-head clashes. The set adopts the same Slingshock rail system, letting you hurtle Wonder Valtryek V4 and Z Achilles A4 around the curves and redirect them towards each other, setting up awesome burst moments. The alternative option is keeping the performance tips that the tops come armed with the Ring mode, defending the initial position on the stadium.

Back to the tops though, they both feature wide flat bases with sharp tips protruding in the middle, borrowing inspiration from Fusion. When you launch them straight down the stadium, the sharp protrusion keeps the Beyblades stable, preventing stamina loss. Switching back to the Slingshock mode, you extend the tips, elevating the top and making the movement pattern more aggressive.

The tops look a little cheap compared to the previous entry on this list, that's one gripe we have with the subject set. Besides that, Beyblade Burst Turbo Slingshock Rail Rush Battle Set Game will create and support pretty epic clashes.

Beyblade Burst Evolution

Multi-Tiered Battles

Beyblade Burst Evolution Switchstrike Battle Tower offers a towering battle experience that can be flipped between 2-player and 4-player modes. The set will let you battle an opponent head-to-head, then flip the stadium and fight with 4 players, unleashing a battle royale. Tops will be able to clash and collide, lowering the arena when they feel like it and engaging in multi-tiered battles. As always, each mode includes updated rules with a pretty straightforward point system. The first 'blade that earns 5 points will come out victorious.

From where we're standing, this product is not cutting even the slightest corners, hence the pretty expensive price tag that accompanies the set. Still, considering the 5-point gameplay system that can accommodate 2-tiered battling, the price is quite reasonable.

Of course, these sets are not complete without 2 right-spin launchers and Beyblade burst switchstrike right-spin battling tops: Strike Valtryek V3 and Noctemis N3. The 'blades feature standard weight distribution, average weight, and have moderately aggressive movement patterns, making them versatile weapons.

When all is said and done, Beyblade Burst Evolution Switchstrike Battle Tower offers thrilling possibilities and unpredictable action that even the most experienced fans will appreciate.

Beyblade BEY Riptide

Excellent Knock-Out Defence

Beyblade BEY Riptide Blast Set is a powerhouse. With this top, you can ride the rails with effortless ease. Furthermore, the top can burst into pieces (the burst rate will depend on the collision).

Borrowing from its Slingshock relatives, this Beyblade can switch between Battle Ring and Slingshock modes. With the first mode, you improve its knock-out defence, increasing the surface area and friction, whilst the wide ring makes contact with the arena's floors when the 'blade is struck, forcing the top upright and acting as brakes that prevent knock-outs.

When you stick with the Slingshock mode, the housing's extended, which means that the top retracts upon contact, making the 'blade more aggressive. That being said, increasing the tip's diameter, you remove the ability to hold Banking Pattern and decrease stamina. Plus, the height increase makes the top easily destabilised.

The one thing that's different about this Beyblade is the integrated power gauge. With this gauge, you can measure the strength at which the top's launched, measuring progress and comparing results. In other words, Beyblade BEY Riptide Blast Set will prove especially suitable for kids who seek to improve their skills and become the best blader out there.

Beyblade Burst B-59

Outward Weight Distribution

Beyblade Burst B-59 packs nothing but a Zillion Zeus B-59 top with a launcher. This is a stamina type top, bearing this slight elliptical shape with two Zs and two faces, representing the top's namesake (Zeus). The 'blade comes equipped with two metal balls on its tracks. Aside from that, the top adopts six blades placed symmetrically, with four of them sloped. In other words, half of the time, the pointed front and back edges will be making contact with the enemy's top.

Increasing the blades' weight and, with its elliptical shape, this Beyblade creates an above-average outward weight distribution, granting the top excellent stamina retention as well as burst resistance. The two ball-shaped tips decrease friction, improving the top's stability and increasing its knock-out resistance.

Its weakness is the plastic ridge. Positioned low, the ridge makes frequent contact with the floors, draining stamina and, due to reduced friction, making the 'blade less difficult to knock out. Also, Zillion Zeus is not the most popular top, so we would recommend asking your kids whether they like it before buying one. Assuming they do, this whirling toy will enable intense, long-duration battles and epic clashes.

Beyblade E1058 Toy Phantazus P2

High LAD

Setting aside the usual launcher, Beyblade E1058 relies upon the Phantazus P2 battling top. This is another stamina type Beyblade and another representative of the Burst System. Incorporating a metal core with a plastic perimeter, this top creates something of a skirt with the plastic, making its perimeter perfectly smooth and circular. In theory, this approach creates high LAD (life after death), making sure that your stamina combination can outspin the opponent. In practice, this gimmick usually works as intended.

That said, the partially plastic construction creates a centralised weight distribution, decreasing the top's spin retention as well as spin time. In doing so, the 'blade becomes susceptible to outspinning. Also, the semi-plastic construction makes this Beyblade lightweight, thus more vulnerable to knock-outs. What's more, employing 4 vertical wings that descend toward an apex, the performance tips is made sharp and pointy, which's great, except that that also affects its balance, making the 'blade tilt on its axis and even topple sometimes.

In conclusion, the kids who like to play aggressive will appreciate this Beyblade and the ones that primarily stick with defence will not.

What Are Beyblades?

The initial early 2000s craze faded out. Nevertheless, with devoted fans and companies like Hasbro supporting them (and making a nice chunk of money in the process), Beyblades seem intent on coming back, so all aboard the nostalgia train, next stop - fun clashes and epic collisions for all ages above 8. For those who have no idea what we're talking about, Beyblades are high-performance whirling toys that can spin at respectable speeds for a long time. The goal here is to stop the opposing 'blade or, best-case scenario, make the enemy's champion burst into separate pieces.

Speaking of which, these original spinning toys are usually made from 3-4 pieces. Since the pieces are interchangeable, you can mix and match pieces from different sets (somewhat like LEGOs), creating different match-ups when you feel like the previous one(s) were uneven. These toys come with launchers that you use to send them spinning into action and, last but not least, stadiums/arenas that host the battles and introduce different features and elements to make them more engaging.

Depending on the kid's age, you can also consider these RC cars, slot cars, or air hockey options.
