Luinor L2 Nine Spiral, "Lost Luinor .N.Sp" ("Lost Longinus", ロストロンギヌス; Rosuto Ronginusu N.Sp) is a Attack-Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System. It was released in Japan on December 28, 2016 for 1300円.
Energy Layer: Lost Longinus
Main article: Energy Layer - Luinor L2
Luinor L2, known in Japan as Lost Longinus, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-66 Starter Lost Longinus Nine Spiral on December 28th, 2016.
Luinor L2 is a wide and heavy Energy Layer designed for attack that features two large dragon heads, representing the anime's rendition of this Layer's beast, a dragon, that come from the perimeter in towards the center and four wings, two of which are larger and make up the main contact points and two of which are smaller and make up secondary contact points, creating an aggressive, high recoil design. The contact points of the larger wings are molded in the shape of spear heads which are meant to represent this Layer's Japanese namesake, the Roman Soldier Longinus of Biblical Events who stabbed Christ in the heart with a lance.
Luinor L2 has two main gimmicks: The first are the dragon heads as they are made of metal. The inclusion of the metal makes Luinor L2 one of the heaviest Layers in the game. The second is the fact that this Layer is made to spin Left, opposite to every other Burst Beyblade before it.
The heavy weight of Luinor L2 generates high inertia and with the aggressive design, makes this Layer excel in Knock-Out and Burst Attack potential. While the left spin nature of Luinor L2 may imply that Burst Attack is only prevalent against other left-spin opponents, this Layer still has strong Burst Attack against Right spin opponents when soft launched.
Against a Right spin Beyblade, the Left spinning nature of Luinor L2 means that it and the opponent's layer will spin together like gears, heavily reducing recoil and rate of Bursts. However, if Luinor L2 is soft launched to give it a slower spin than the opponent, the slower spin speed will create recoil from the opponent's Layer catching into Luinor L2's blades, which both grants this Layer Burst Attack and further improves this Layer's Knock-Out Attack. Furthermore the opposite spin allows for some degree of Spin Equalization, however not enough to be the primary focus for customizations. The Takara Tomy release of Luinor L2 features three teeth of medium-high length that are capable of withstanding the recoil this Layer produces, even against another Left spin opponent as the heavy weight further increases Burst resistance as the Layer's higher inertia can better resist teeth skipping.
Use in Attack Customizations
Luinor L2 can be put to use in the Attack customization Luinor L2 Heavy/Gravity/2/4/6/7/8Glaive/Vortex/Meteor Xtreme/Accel/Zephyr/Hold. The heavy weight of Heavy/Gravity/2Glaive/4Vortex further enhances Luinor L2's high inertia and the Layer's teeth and weight reduces the Burst risk associated with using heavy disks while Xtreme/Accel/Zephyr/Hold's aggressive movement compliments the Layer's Knock-Out attack. Hold specifically, due to the soft launch needed control it, is able to give Luinor L2 the low spin velocity needed to give it Burst Attack.
Luinor L2's heavy weight, aggressive design and strong in nature, Burst resistance make the Layer an excellent part in Knock-Out Attack Combinations. Its weight specifically prevents the Layer from being outclassed by weight alone with the release of the Beyblade Burst Evolution Layers. However, since Knock-Outs are less important in the Burst Metagame, Luinor L2 falls behind other Energy Layers that specialize in Burst Attack such as Legend Spriggan.
As such, Luinor L2 is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to any blader's collection.

- Lost Longinus Nine Spiral (Crimson Dragon Ver.) (translucent blue, red painted dragon heads)
- B-00 Lost Longinus Nine Spiral (red colored plastic, black translucent plastic, gold painted dragon heads)
- B-00 Lost Longinus Nine Spiral (yellow/gold, black painted dragon heads)
The Lost Longinus Layer is the heaviest layer in the dual layer series of Beyblade Burst due to the double metal dragon heads on the layer, It also is this first beyblade to have metal on the top of the layer.
Forge Disc: Nine
Main article: Forge Disc - Nine
Nine features nine downward sloping blades that are meant to create Down Force in left spin and Upper Force in right spin, akin to the blades of Boost, only reversed. However the small size of the blades makes any Down or Upper Force generated negligible. Furthermore, Nine's downward sloping nature of the blades increases the risk of floor scrapes, however the jagged design creates high Burst attack in cases of Disc to Layer contact with the opponent.
While this Disk only generates negligible Down or Upper Force and increases the risk of floor scraps, Nine also creates high Burst attack due to its jagged design. However Nine is still outclassed by many heavier Discs such as Heavy and Gravity and the Disc to Layer contact can increase the risk of Bursts.
As such, Nine is suitable only for collection purposes.

The Nine disk has nine protrusions that goes to the left.It is basically a left rotating version of the boost disk with a nice blue paint job to add the finishing touch.
