SSD is weird to me. It's easily Swordfighter's best recovery due to its non linearity coupled with Swordfighter's floatiness but using it meas no Hero's Spin. Using SSD is pretty much you accepting that you need to learn Swordfighter's other kill set upsBump because honestly, I didn't know where to type this. So when I did some Jump Height Rankings for Swordfighter, I learned that just the Height slider greatly affects his vertical recovery on Stone Scabbard grounded & airborne, but not for Hero's Spin & Skyward Slash Dash (I'm sorry if this has been discussed multiple times or was mentioned heavily). For the players that like Taller Mii Swordfighter but don't care much for the weight since weight doesn't change anything recovery-wise but does affect the hitbox size of all three, they can enjoy SS more.
Personally for me, I've been rolling more SSD lately just because I realize that a recent patch buffed the vertical height SSD recovers, & it's amaaaazing. D-air gimping for low recoveries & recovering back with SSD is so good that I prefer this over Hero's Spin since the height & weight don't matter with the recovery aspect of the two. SSD is basically a combination of Falco's Fire Bird multi-hit property with less startup traveling about the distance of Fox's Fire Fox, & I enjoy that. Despite that I sacrifice the strong OoS kill option that the grounded HS offers, SSD is for me regardless of what H/W set I use.
Question: Who else uses SSD & is fond of it & what instances do you use the move? I'm interested in other's ideas & strategies.
