It is a hollow tip with a spike (sharp) inside of it that barely pokes out of the bottom. It is a good stamina tip. If you like stamina tips with an "edge", it will attack furiously if it is tilted ever so slightly. Because of this, you might like this tip. Like most normal Defense tips, it keeps its balance and does not allow much movement. On the down side, the spike wears down very quickly. DS is better than WD for Hades and BD145, at least in Hasbro stadiums.
