Face Bolt: Scorpio/Escolpio

Main article: Face Bolt - Scorpio

Facebolt SCORPIO BB65 21352

Scorpio Face

This face depicts Scorpius, one of the 88 Constellations in our galaxy. As the name Scorpius suggests, the Face Bolt has a picture of a scorpion. The word "Escolpio" is smudged in the Hasbro release.

Energy Ring: Scorpio/Escolpio

Main article: Energy Ring - Scorpio

  • Weight: 2.3 grams

The Scorpio Energy Ring features two "stingers" on opposing ends of the Energy Ring. It is the second lightest Energy Ring available. Due to Scorpio's small shape and slopes, using Scorpio increases contact with the Fusion Wheel, and decreases contact with the Energy Ring. This is particularly useful for increasing a Beyblade's Smash Attack and its potential to destabilize the opposing Beyblade.

Use in Attack Customization

Scorpio can be used in the powerful Smash Attack combination Flash Escolpio GB145RF/R²F.

Fusion Wheel: Counter

Main article: Fusion Wheel - Counter

  • Weight: 29.2 Grams

Counter is styled like a HWS version of the Metal System Leone. It possesses six similar mane-like projections that coronate its circumference. The gaps between the six projections are too small to provide consistent smash for a competitive Attack Customization. Counter still showcases fair Smash Attack, but unlike Leone, it lacks the same degree of recoil. This is because the projecting paws are more compact and rounded than its counterpart’s. The lowered recoil makes it a better, albeit underwhelming, choice for a defensive combo.

Spin Track: 145

Main article: Spin Track - 145

145, along with its variants (C145, DF145, etc.), was once the highest Spin Track available, until the 230 Spin Track was released with Flame Byxis 230WD. It can be used in Stamina customs to great effect due to its tall height, which allows for more wobbling as the Beyblade loses its spin velocity. However, gimmick-paired Tracks such as BD145 have immensely outclassed their original bare variant, as have several taller gimmick Spin Tracks, against heavy, mid-height Attack customisations. Even in Stamina battles, 145 does not offer enough balance: Spin Tracks such as AD145 and WD145 provide a good center of gravity, and aid with a slight downforce to maintain stability.

Performance Tip: Defense (D)

Main article: Performance Tip - Defense


Defense is a Performance Tip released as part of the Metal System. It debuted with the release of Leone 145D in August 2008.

Description

The Defense Performance Tip acts as a wider version of a Sharp Performance Tip. When hit by an opponent, a Beyblade with this Performance Tip will have lessened recoil and will recover from attacks more efficiently than a Sharp Performance Tip. Until WD and its variants were released, D was the favored Stamina Performance Tip. D has superior balance to the Sharp series of Performance Tips, and as a result generally superior stamina in competitive play.

Use in Stamina customization D can be put to use in the combination Duo/Phantom Aquario/Cancer/Cygnus TH170D. D is a superior choice for TH170 because it retains balance better than WD.

Overall

This Beyblade features two top tier parts: 145 and D. However, considering these parts can be found in more useful releases this Beyblade should only be bought for collection purposes.
