Caynox C3 4Flow Bearing, known as Deep Chaos 4Flow Bearing (ディープカオス・フォーフロー・ベアリング, Dīpu Kaosu Fō Furō Bearingu) in Japan, is a Stamina Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It was released in Japan on November 11th, 2017 for 4968円 as part of the God Customize Set and was later released in western countries as a SwitchStrike Starter Pack.
Energy Layer - Caynox C3
Main article: Energy Layer - Caynox C3
Caynox C3 is a Stamina Type Energy Layer that features an almost completely round perimeter made of two large wings with each wing is split into three blades. The primary points of contact come from a large gap on either side with the right hand side’s blade protruding further than the other, this blade is sloped in order to grant the Layer Upper Attack. As part of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System, Caynox C3 features a gimmick; the wings of the Layer are spring loaded, akin to Genesis Valtryek V3, in order to create “Bound Defense”, akin to Guardian Kerbeus and Jerk.
The springs of Caynox C3 are positioned vertically to allow the blades to shift so that when upon impact, the Layer will cushion impacts and destabilize the opponent by pushing back. Despite this gimmick however, Caynox C3 ends up having poor Burst Resistance due to its sharp protrusions.
Caynox C3's Stamina exceeds that of Kerbeus K4 and against Defense Combinations and other Stamina Combinations, as the sloped blades of Caynox C3 severely destabilize the opponent and in turn drain their Stamina. This, along with the Takara Tomy release of Deep Chaos and its high Life After Death potential, even without Frames, makes it outclass the aforementioned Layer Stamina wise. Despite this however, the Layer's teeth must rely on an A Mold God Chip in order to perform competitively, and even with an A Mold God Chip, it is still vulnerable against Attack Combinations.
Forge Disc - 4
Main article: Forge Disc - 4
4, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features two protrusions, one molded into the shape of a "4" and the other molded into the shape of the Roman Numeral "IV". The protrusions extend further from the center more than other Core Discs which grants 4 high Outward Weight Distribution and subsequent Stamina potential. As a Core Disc, 4 is comparatively heavier than regular Forge Discs such as Heavy and Gravity which grants higher KO resistance and the ability to facilitate Disc Frames can add characteristics such as Life After Death with Cross or Glaive. While 7 has greater Stamina, 4's Stamina is still comparable.
Disc Frame - Flow
Main article: Disc Frame - Flow
Flow is a Disc Frame that features a triangular design with each side featuring three sloped blades, meant to provide Upper Force in Right-Spin and Down Force in Left-Spin. However, the small size of the blades means that the effect is negligible. Compared to Cross, Star and Glaive, Flow’s perimeter is too rough to aid in Life After Death in Defense and Stamina Combinations and compared to Vortex, Meteor and Bump, Flow has too little weight to aid in Attack Combinations.
Performance Tip - Bearing
Main article: Performance Tip - Bearing
Bearing features a free spinning, low angled cone tip composed of PolyOxyMethylene (POM) plastic and supported by ball bearings, akin to a mix between Yielding and Bearing Drive from Metal Fight Beyblade.
The POM plastic reduces friction between the stadium floor and the tip while the ball bearings reduces friction between the tip and the shaft, features that grant Bearing the highest Stamina potential in the game. Furthermore the bearing supported free-spinning shaft resists roaming if a Bearing Combination is off balance or low on spin, helping a Combination remain in the center as much as possible. Additionally, because of how small the tip of Bearing is, combined with the wideness of the cone, the Combination will often be off balance, even when it has a lot of Stamina left. This can actually create Disc-to-Layer contact.
However, Bearing features two critical weaknesses. The first is the poor KO resistance caused by the POM tip; since there is so little friction between the tip and stadium floor, Bearing Combinations are highly susceptible to KOs. The second and more important is the poor Burst resistance; while low friction and free-spinning tips normally increase a Combination's Burst resistance, Bearing's spring lock is noticeable much weaker than any other Performance Tip at the time of writing, making Bearing Combinations the easiest to Burst in the game.
- Caynox's Japanese name, Deep Chaos, is based from Chaos or Khaos, the primeval state of existence, the dark void of space, from which the first gods appeared.
