This Metal Wheel is made up of two parts: a Core, which comprises the Metal part of the Metal Wheel, and a PC Frame.
The PC Frame of this 4D Metal Wheel is the piece that acts as the primary mechanism behind its Mode Change. There are triangular designs on each side of the PC Frame resembling cat ears; the weight is mainly focused on these opposite ends of the Frame.
The Core of Beat could be seen as a representation of the snout of a Lynx, along with the Clear Wheel which represents its ears. There are diamond-shaped designs lining the inside of the Core that lead towards the two main protruding contact points. These protrusions produce ferocious Smash Attack, but unfortunately also create Recoil. The overarching design is similar to both Vulcan and Quetzalcoatl.
Like all 4D Metal Wheels, Beat features a mode changing gimmick. It works by rotating the PC Frame while the Beyblade is disassembled. The two Modes are:
- Attack Mode :
In this mode, the PC Frame is aligned with the two long "wings" of the Core, exposing the two protruding contact points on each side.
- Defense Mode:
In this mode, the PC Frame is rotated 90° so that the two heavier ends cover the two protruding contact points, creating a circular wall of sorts around the perimeter of Beat.
Attack Mode is the only competitively useful mode of the two. In Defense Mode, the PC Frame unfortunately leaves a small portion of the protruding contact points exposed. And even if they were covered completely, much heavier Wheels such as Basalt would still outclass it.
In Attack Mode, Beat is arguably one of the best right-spin Attack Wheels. Its best uses are in mid- and low-height Attack customizations, with mid-height being the most preferred. As a two-sided Metal Wheel, it works best with two-sided Clear Wheels such as Lynx.
Use in Attack Customization
A Metal Face, mid-height Track, and RF are the best options for reducing Beat's Recoil, and maximizing its Smash. An increase in movement speed can be attained by using the same parts, but opting for a low-track instead. Some of Beat's most popular combinations are MF Beat Lynx GB145RF and Beat Lynx 85RF.
