Earth Virgo GB145BS
Number: BB-60
System: Hybrid Wheel System
Type: Stamina

Face: Virgo

The Face depicts Virgo, the sixth astrological sign of the Zodiac.

Clear Wheel: Virgo

  • Weight: 2.8 grams

Virgo was first released in a translucent yellow colour. Virgo has a smooth, flowing design to emulate a woman's hair, and features a small notch on both sides.

Metal Wheel: Earth

  • Weight: 33.1 grams

Earth has four thick, textured wings surrounding its perimeter, with each pair facing each other on a slight incline. The space created between the wings is quite small, and the resulting effect is the same of any Wheel that has no spaces, low recoil. Its smooth, circular design and low recoil make it one of the best, if not the best, Defense-oriented wheel currently available for competitive play. Earth Virgo GB145BS comes with the second mold of Earth.

IMPORTANT: Mold Variations

Earth Metal Wheel (second mold)

Earth has two different molds. The first mold was released in BB-47 Starter Earth Aquila 145WD, and the second in both the purple WBBA "Event Special" MF Earth Aquila 105HF/S, and SonoKong manufactured Earth Metal Wheels. The second mold addressed breaking problems that the original mold faced by modifying the inside of each of Earth's wings. The new mold is up to three grams heavier than the old mold (30-31 grams versus 33 grams on the new mold), which makes it significantly more effective for Defense customizations. Therefore, the new mold is the preferred choice for Defense customs using Earth, while the original mold would be the best for Stamina.

Use in Defense Customization

Earth can be utilized in the Defense customization, MF Earth Bull GB145WB.

Use in Stamina Customization

Earth also has exceptional Stamina capabilities and can be utilized in the Stamina custom Earth Bull DF145SD.

Track: Gravity Bowl 145

  • Weight: 4.5 grams

GB145 is a wide, round track featuring two free moving metal balls. These balls move toward the outside of the track while spinning, causing some additional spin retaining force. Weighing in at 4.5 grams, GB145 is currently the second heaviest track available, and as such is extremely useful in Defense customizations. Because it lacks energy-absorbing free spinning wings, it is not as effective as C145 against low attackers such as Quetzalcoatl 90RF.

Use in Defense Customization

GB145 can be utilized in the Defense customization MF Earth Bull GB145WB.

Bottom: Ball Sharp

  • Weight: 1 gram

BS offers very little movement and as such gives 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. BS has decent Stamina, but it experiences the balance issues that the S series bottoms share because its tip is so fine. D, WD and SD are better choices.

Use in Stamina Customization

If you don't have access to D, WD or SD, BS can be used to some degree of effectiveness in Stamina customs such as Virgo DF145BS.

Earth is a wheel with great Defense and Stamina, and GB145 is an extremely useful track for Defense as well. While BS leaves much to be desired, Earth and GB145 more than make up for it. Every Blader should own at least one of this Beyblade.
