Beat Lynx TH170WD is a Balance-Type Beyblade that appears in the anime and manga, Beyblade: Metal Fury. It is owned by Johannes and was released in Random Booster Vol. 7 Beat Lynx on April 23, 2011 in Japan.
Beat Lynx's main feature is it's TH170 Spin Track. A variant of H170 which has the ability to change between three heights, 170, 195, and 220. This has given it more versatility than 230 and has become a very useful Spin Track for Defense and Stamina combinations. The Sonokong's version has a lighter color than the Takara Tomy's.
Face Bolt: Lynx
- Weight: 1.04 grams
The Face Bolt depicts "Lynx", one of the 88 constellations in space.Named after lynx, a genus of felines that are identified by the small "tufts" on the tip of their ears. The design features the head of a lynx in a tribal, flame-like manner coloured black and tattooed onto a gold Face Bolt.
4D Energy Ring: Lynx
- Weight: 3.06 grams
Lynx is primarily, a two-sided 4D Energy Ring with curved sides having a paw-like design to emulate that of a lynx's. It has two notches inbetween the sides that is slightly curved. Due to being two-sided, it is better used in two-sided Wheels such as Beat or Vulcan for improved weight distribution. Being a translucent bronze in colour and as with all other 4D Energy Rings, Lynx has a power-like substance encased inside it to add more weight; the effect is negligible though.
Attack: 2.5 - Defense: 2.5 - Stamina: 2
Fusion Wheel: Beat
- Total Weight: 35.98 grams
- Weight: 2.62 grams
Beat's PC Frame is a two-sided translucent, bronze Frame that is primarily oval-shaped. It's main function is to change Beat's Mode between "Attack Mode" and "Defense Mode" by rotating it across the Metal Frame.
- Weight: 33.36 grams
Beat's Core is the main piece of this Fusion Wheel where it's contact points go into play. What's noticeable about this Core from first glance, is that it bears a huge resemblance to Vulcan; being two-sided with it's main contact points, two protrusions between it's curved sides that act as "ears". It acts as a wider version of Vulcan due to this. It's curved sides are large and bulky while the ears are linear and thin; whilst also being curved. It also shows diamond designs near the curved sides.
Beat has two modes, "Attack Mode" and "Defense Mode". When in Attack Mode, the "ear" of the Wheel appears however, when in Defense Mode, the "ear" is covered. This can be switched simply by rotating the PC Frame onto the Metal Frame.
Due to the Metal Frame's large resemblance to Vulcan, Midnight, and Bull it offers a very powerful Smash Attack, even superior to Vulcan's but contains recoil in the downside. Due to this, Beat has outclassed Vulcan in it's release for it's very powerful and consistent Smash Attack capability.
Beat can reach it's full potential in Attack Mode which is what Bladers use mostly as it is guaranteed for maximum Smash Attack. Beat also shines in low and mid-height combos but usually mid-heights.
Overall, Beat is a very powerful Fusion Wheel thanks to it's core and is a top-tier as well. With this, Beat has been compared to Variares, and Blitz as one of the best 4D Fusion Wheels for Attack-Types.
Attack: 2.5 - Defense: 2.5 - Stamina: 2
Spin Track: Triple Height 170 (TH170)
* Weight: 4.39 grams
Triple Height 170 (TH170) is a variation of CH120 that as it's name implies, can switch between three heights for this Track. They include, 170, 195, and 220. Changing these heights is just like changing heights on CH120, one rotates the Track, pulls it to the height desired, and rotates again to lock it in place. Just like 230, these heights are only found on this Track and not on any other Spin Track. With these three heights, it has given TH170 more versatility than 230 and outclassed it in every way possible. TH170 is a translucent copper in colour.
230 is still a great Track for Defense and Stamina nonetheless, but Bladers commonly use TH170 because of it's more usefulness in battle. Since it's release with Beat Lynx, TH170 has gained use quickly in Defense and Stamina, it remains a very great Track and top-tier to this day.
Performance-wise, TH170 is recommended in 170 or 195 height against opponents using 145 variants of Attack and Stamina, whereas 220 is useful for when outspinning low-height Beys of Attack, Defense, and Stamina.
Performance Tip: Wide Defense
Wide Defense, as its name implies, is the widest of the “Defense” series of Performance Tips (D, SD, WD, EWD and PD). It's width provides many advantages, but also some disadvantages too. Wide Defense has arguably been called the "best Stamina Performance Tip available if used in the right combination". Unlike many other Tips, Wide Defense has much Stamina. Aside from all of this, Wide Defense also has good balance. This Tip can be used to beat Attack-Types by using a weak shot. It is a translucent copper in colour.
Attack: 0 - Defense: 5 - Stamina: 2
