Saramanda Balro DF145SWD is a Beyblade released in the Beyblade Zero-G Ultimate Synchrom DX Set Attack & Balance Type on November 17, 2012 in Japan.
Stone Face: Balro
This face depicts the skull and horns of a Balrog, a mythical demon of fire and shadow from the "The Lord of the Rings".

|Weight:||31.45 grams||Full Width:||47.63 mm||Height:||6.37 mm|
Like all Chrome Wheels, Balro possesses an asymetrical design: at the top is a sculpted horned demon head with an abnormal, star-shaped right eye. Most of the Balro Chrome Wheel's surface is dedicated to huge rigged horns, while the bottom illustrates a carved bat surrounded by flames. The overall structure forms a jagged hexagonal shape.
Warrior Wheel 2: Saramanda

|Weight:||30.6 grams||Full Width:||47.36 mm||Height:||6.31 mm|
Besides the obligatory hole on one side of Saramanda, this Chrome Wheel's design generally consists of lines of scales and points coupled with some curves on the sides, near the hole. There are also two other smoother areas atop Saramanda, to break the patterns of sharp scales. Block-like parts reminescent of Leone's paws adorn two other portions of the sides as well.
When used as the top Chrome Wheel in a Synchrom
Saramanda is decently heavy, and slightly imbalanced, so when on the top of a high Synchrom, it is great for providing the weight and wobble that a Force Smashing bottom Chrome Wheel needs. Saramanda does have some minor Smash Attack, which makes it a good Chrome Wheel to assist and add weight to a Smash Attack Synchrom. It also has above average Defensive qualities and can be used in Defense Synchroms when Revizer is not available. However, if one Revizer is available, Saramanda should be placed in the Synchrom where it is not the main contact point for the opponent, such as in MSF-H Revizer Saramanda E230RDF/RB/CS/RS.
Saramanda has little to no Force Smash, so with the exception of assisting in a Force Smash combo, Saramanda performs the same on the bottom as it does on the top of a Synchrom. Again, when using it in a Defense Synchrom, if one Revizer is available, Saramanda should be placed in the Synchrom where it is not the main contact point for the opponent, like in MSF-H Saramanda Revizer BD145RDF/RB/CS/RS.
When in Synchrom with another Saramanda
Saramanda's side contact points line up almost to perfection when it is put in Synchrom with itself, and seems to have good balance since its weight distribution is consequently symmetrical. Because of this equilibrium, it has some minor Stamina potential, but not top tier. The combination of its weight, balance, and minor amount of Smash, make this an excellent choice for an Anti-Attack Synchrom. Saramanda Saramanda can also be used in a Defensive combo in the likes of MSF-H Saramanda Saramanda BD145/E230 RDF/RB/CS/RS when Revizer Revizer is not available.
Spin Track: DF145
Main article: Spin Track - DF145
DF145 has four upward facing wings protruding from the top of the Track, which aside from giving it extra weight are meant to push air downwards. It is now outclassed for use in Stamina combinations. Instead, tracks such as AD145, 145, 100, 90, and even 85 are used.
Performance Tip: SWD
Main article: Performace Tip - SWD
|Weight:||0.82 gram||Full Width:||15.67 mm||Tip Width:||14.58 mm||Full Height:||8.96 mm||Tip Height:||6.50 mm|
SWD has an odd shape: it's basically a small sharp tip encased in a straight, circular frame of plastic, leaving a hole between the tip and the frame. From the side, SWD looks like a large FS with a smaller tip.
