|Leone 145D (Defense)|
|System:||Metal Fight Beyblade|
Note: This article was written near the release of Metal Fight Beyblade and must be updated. Please do not take all of the information here as the truth, as they had not been tested as extensively then as they have been now, and the uses of their parts have changed since their original release. Updates will be posted on the main page when completed.
The face on this Beyblade depicts Leo, which is a sign in the Zodiac.
- Weight: 38 grams
- Maximum Outer Diameter: 43.57 Millimeters
- Maximum Height: 8.97 Millimeters
Leone's Wheel has been designed to be very compact and is currently one of the heaviest wheels at 38 grams (coming in second only to Libra, which is 43 grams). Because of its heavy weight, its Defensive ability is quite high and it is not very easily knocked around and is able to outspin or deflect most opponents the majority of the time. Leone's Wheel is one of the top choices for Endurance type customizations, however it is closely matched by Pegasis in that regard.
Track: 145 (14.5mm)
- Weight: 1.5 grams
145 is the highest Track available, along with the various other 145-variants (C145, DF145, etc.). 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, but that being said, DF145 has this same effect but also the added bonus of its “Down Force” which while negligible, stabilizes the Beyblade it is being used on slightly. 145, being as tall as makes it easily susceptible to low Attackers; however, this should not be seen as a drawback because normally Stamina types are not used against Attack types.
- Weight: 1 gram
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 was once the best Stamina bottom available, but is now outclassed by SD. However, it can still be used to success in Virgo DF145D.
Leone 145D is clearly one of the top choices for Defensive minded bladers at this point in time, and for good reason. Its compact design, and heavy weight make it hard to knock around and out of the Bey Stadium. Although, its one gaping flaw is its height. Using Leone's Wheel in conjunction with the 145 Track leaves it wide open for Bull's Upper Attack. To alleviate this problem though, simply switch to a lower track, such as 125. This will increase Leone's Defense, and make it less prone to any Upper Attack.
