Archer Gryph C145S
Number: BBG-12
System: Beyblade Zero-G
Type: Balance
Element: Thunder

Metal Stone Face: Gryph

  • Weight: grams

The sticker on Archer Gryph's Metal Stone Faces illustrates the eagle part of a Griffin/Gryphon/Griffon.

Chrome Wheel: Gryph

  • Weight: 30.4 grams

Similar to the Leone Wheel, Gryph consists of eight distinct sections. Four of them have spikes curved in a right-spin direction, and the other half of the sections mostly constitutes of straight boulders like on Bakushin. One of the latter sections is however in the shape of an eagle head viewed from a profile perspective, with the orb from the Crystal Wheel showing right at the left border of the head.

Crystal Wheel: Archer

  • Weight: 5.16 grams

Archer has large curves from a bow protruding around one half of its circumference, with some fancy string details engraved in the rest of the design, notably where the crystal is located.

Track: Claw 145

  • Weight: 3.2 grams

C145 has three wings which extend outwards, each separately joined onto the underside of the Track. These are free moving, and hence when the Beyblade is launched, these point outwards due to spin velocity. Their free moving nature make them very effective for defensive purposes, as they are able to withstand low hits to the Track without significant spin loss. Furthermore, the Track is significantly heavier than non-gimmicked Tracks such as 145, providing extra weight essential for Defense. As such, the Track is an essential part for current Defense customizations. But as the beyblade wobbles, the claws might have impact with the floor causing loss of balance, severe loss of stamina or resulting in the beyblade stops spinning.

Use in Defense Customization

When used in MF Earth Bull C145RS, the “claws” which extend outwards provide a very significant protection against low attackers such as Quetzalcoatl 90RF. However, low attackers such as Quetzalcoatl 90RF have been outclassed, therefore C145 sees very little use, and has been replaced as a top-tier defence track by GB145 or 230.

Bottom: Sharp

  • Weight: 0.6 grams

Sharp was released as Spike in the Hasbro release.The Sharp Bottom offers very little movement and as such provides no attack potential. The pointed tip allows for very little friction between the Bottom and the stadium surface, which helps prevent the loss of spin velocity. However, due to the fine nature of the tip, the Bottom is easily knocked off balance, and hence is outclassed by superior alternatives such as D or SD.
