Counter Escolpio 145D
Bb-86-b.jpg
Number: BB-86
System: Hybrid Wheel System
Type: Defense

Note: This Beyblade was released as apart of the Beyblade Deck Attack & Defense Set and was re-named "Counter Scorpio 145D" and released as a Starter instead of inside a Set by Hasbro.

Face: Escolpio

The Face on this Beyblade depicts Scorpio, the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac. In Hasbro's release, the "Escolpio" writing is smudged.

Clear Wheel: Escolpio BeywikiBannerBad.jpg

  • Weight: 2.3 grams

The Escolpio Clear Wheel is of a black colour, featuring 2 "Stingers" on opposing ends of the Clear Wheel. It is the second lightest Clear Wheel available. Due to Escolpio's small shape and slopes, using Escolpio increases contact with the Metal Wheel, and decreases contact with the Clear Wheel. This is particularly useful for increasing a Beyblade's Smash Attack and its potential to destabilize the opposing Beyblade.

Use in Attack Customization

Escolpio can be used in the powerful Smash Attack combination Flash Escolpio GB145RF/R²F.

Metal Wheel: Counter BeywikiBannerBad.jpg

  • 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.

Use in Attack Customization

If you somehow lack access to competitive wheels, Counter can be used to some degree of effectiveness in Smash Attack customs such as MF Counter Bull H145RF.

Track: 145 BeywikiBannerBad.jpg

Weight: 1.47 grams Full Width: 20 mm Minimum Width: 18 mm Height: 14.50 mm

145, along with its variants (C145, DF145, etc.), was once the highest Track available, until the 230 Track was released with Flame Byxis. 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 like BD145 have immensely outclassed their original bare variant, on top of several taller gimmick Tracks surpassing 145 as well against heavy, mid-height Attackers. Even in Stamina battles, 145 does not offer enough balance: Tracks like AD145 and W145 provide a good center of gravity, and aid with a slight downforce to maintain stability.

Bottom: Defense BeywikiBannerGreat.jpg

Weight: 0.68 gram Full Width: 15.55 mm Tip Width: 8.94 mm Full Height: 8.89 mm Tip Height: 7.59 mm

This is a Defense Bottom, which acts as a wider version of a Sharp tip. When hit by an opponent, a Beyblade with this Bottom will have lessened recoil and will recover from attacks more efficiently than a Sharp Tip. However, while recovering, the Defense Bottom will cause the Beyblade to lose some stamina, caused by the added friction.

Use in Stamina customization

D can be put to use in the combination Duo Cygnus 230D. D is a superior choice for 230 because it retains balance more easily than WD.

Overall

This Beyblade features two top tier parts: 145 and D. However, considering these parts can be found in more useful releases this Beyblade should only be bought for collection purposes.
