Wolborg 4 is an Stamina-type Beyblade and is one of Tala's Beyblades. It was released as part of the Engine Gear System.

Bit Chip (BC): Wolborg

The chip depicts Wolborg.

Attack Ring (AR): Star Wolf

Main article: Attack Ring - Star Wolf

Star Wolf, as its name suggests, takes the form of a six-pointed star. Three of the points are shaped like wolf heads, with small notches at the tips reminiscent of a nose. The other three points are simple triangles with a bolt design at the base, and do not extend out as far as the wolf heads. In both Right and Left Spin, Star Wolf will offer moderate amounts of Smash Attack, however, it also suffers from serious Recoil because its contact points are not as defined and well shaped as other, more competitive options. Because of this recoil, Star Wolf is not suitable as a Defense or Survival AR either. As a result, Star Wolf should only be used for Attack if superior options such as Cross Griffon, Eight Spiker, or Triple Tiger are not available.


Weight Disk (WD): 10 Wide

Engine Gear (EG): Circle Survivor

Main article: Engine Gear - Circle Survivor

  • Weight of EG: 7 grams
  • Weight of EG + CEW: 12 grams

Right EG (Circle Survivor) is an Engine Gear similar to Rock Bison’s Right EG (Circle Defenser) or Desert Sphinxer’s Right EG (Mystery Cutter), in the sense that unlike most Engine Gears, which have a Customize Engine Weight (CEW) made of metal, it instead has a detachable plastic CEW. This CEW is shaped like a bowl and has a tip that is a similar shape to the D series of Bottoms from Metal Fight Beyblade. In addition, the bowl is free-spinning due to the nature of the Engine Gear, and covers nearly all of the Blade Base. These factors, combined with the unusually tall height of Engine Gear Beyblades, make Right EG (Circle Survivor) an excellent choice for a Defense/Survival hybrid, as well as one of the most effective counters to Zombie Beyblades.

Because Right EG (Circle Survivor) is taller than many of its opponents, they will primarily come in contact with the free-spinning CEW, with the effect of either absorbing the hit in the manner of a free-spinning Sub-AR against Left-Spin Beyblades, or charging the Engine Gear against Right-Spin Beyblades. This neutralizes almost all short Attack Types and forms of Upper Attack, making it not only an effective choice for Survival, but for Defense as well. In addition to all of this, the CEW provides the Beyblade with potent Life After Death capabilities, allowing it to outspin many competitive Zombie customizations consistently. The one drawback of Right EG (Circle Survivor) is that due to its parts it can only spin Right, meaning that it is susceptible to Right Spin Survival customs. However this drawback is mitigated by the fact that the majority of Survival customs, Zombie or otherwise, spin Left.

Use in Circle Survivor Customization

The bowl-like CEW piece of Right EG (Circle Survivor) can best be put to use in the custom:

  • AR: Roller Defense Ring (Roller Defenser)
  • WD: Ten Heavy
  • SG: Right EG (Circle Defenser)
  • BB: Normal Base (Rock Bison Version) (Rock Bison)
  • CEW Part: Circle Survivor

This combo attempts to maximize contact between the opposing Beyblade and the CEW by using Rock Bison’s taller Engine Gear prongs and Base to raise the AR and WD to a height that only the tallest Attack types can reach. In addition to this a Compact AR and WD are chosen to further minimize any contact they have with the opponent.


Blade Base (BB): Normal Base (Wolborg 4 Version)

Main article: Blade Base - Normal Base (Wolborg 4 Version)

As its name suggests, this BB is almost completely smooth and circular, with no significant gimmicks or designs, unlike most spring-loaded Engine Gear Bases. It has two clips that hold the Engine Gear in place, as well as a circular hole in the center through which the pegs that hold the CEW protrude. Compared to similar Engine Gear Bases such as Rock Bison's, Normal Base (Wolborg 4 Version) is shorter and lighter, making it slightly less useful for Defense.

Use in Circle Survivor Customization

While Normal Base (Rock Bison Version) is generally preferred because is adds both height and weight to the custom, Normal Base (Wolborg 4 Version) is a fine substitute and can be used in the following combo:

  • AR: Tiger Defenser (Driger S)/Wing Cross (Mold 1) (Bistool)
  • WD: Wide Defense/Wide Survivor/Ten Balance
  • SG: Right EG (Circle Defenser)
  • BB: Normal Base (Wolborg 4 Version)
  • CEW Part: Circle Survivor

Twin Horn, Twin Horn (Hasbro) + Dragon Saucer S-AR, and War Lion + Dragon Saucer S-AR can be used as passable substitutes. However, neither version of Twin Horn performs as well in Right Spin as Tiger Defenser does. Furthermore, using the Dragon Saucer S-AR increases this combo's resistance to Spin Equalization, but also makes it more susceptible to Driger V2 Customs. Mold 1 of Wing Cross is preferred over Mold 2, but if either is used, Wide Defense or Wide Survivor must accompany it in order to cover up its contact points.


Overall

Due to Wolborg 4’s lack of the Bearing gimmick associated with previous Wolborg iterations, as well as its association with the lackluster Engine Gear series, Wolborg 4 was an often overlooked Beyblade. While the Attack Ring, Star Wolf is subpar, and the Weight Disk, Ten Wide, is outclassed by Wide Defense for nearly all conventional uses, the Engine Gear, Customize Engine Weight, and Blade Base make this Beyblade indispensable to competitive Plastics players.

Additionally, Wolborg 4 is generally very cost efficient, making it a worthwhile purchase. Every Beyblader should own a copy of this Beyblade.
