Defence type Beyblades are known for being very heavy. They tend to hold their ground and show very little movement when hit by the opposing Beyblade. They have a large spin velocity which is created by their weight. The Grip base can also be used within the defence type customization. Due to the rubber used on the tip, there is practically no movement when the blade gets hit. This is also its weakness. Because of the rubber, the blade looses more RPM when struck by the opposing Beyblade.
