Energy Ring: Scorpio/Escolpio

- 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

- 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
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.
