The Bull Face Bolt depicts "Taurus", the second astrological sign in the Zodiac and one of the 88 constellations in space. The design features a bull head, with the word "BuLL" below it. Some Hasbro releases, such as Midnight Bull 125SF, omit the word and enlarge the bull head.

Energy Ring - Bull

Bull is an Energy Ring with two-sided symmetry, featuring a bulky, gently sloping design on each side with a small gap in between.

Fusion Wheel: Dark

DARK
Main article: Fusion Wheel - Dark

Dark has twelve spikes facing the clockwise direction. These protrusions are closely packed together with minimal space between each, resulting in an overall round shape. This shape hinders the Fusion Wheel in two ways: its protrusions are not pronounced enough to provide sufficient Smash Attack, while the perimeter is interrupted too frequently for sufficient Stamina. Additionally, its weight is distributed over too large a surface area. There is thus no reason to use Dark in any competitive situation whatsoever.

Spin Track: Horn 145

  • Weight: 4.0 grams
  • Height: 14.5 millimeters

H145 has two wings with two various protrusions, representing the horns of a Bull surrounding its perimeter. These four points are meant to provide Smash Attack, and they do succeed on some levels. However, because the horns are so pronounced, and because the gaps between the wings are so wide, significant recoil is produced, especially when used in combination with small Metal Wheels that allow the Horns to extend well past the perimeter of the Wheel. While H145 may not be an entirely noteworthy part as far as competitive customizations go, it is still quite a fun part to play with. You can score many impressive KO's with the smash it produces in the first few seconds of a battle, but at the same time, it's recoil does work against you in some battles, causing a self-KO or if not, a severe loss of Stamina.

IMPORTANT: Mold Variations

H145 Track (second mold)

  • Weight: 4.3 grams

H145 has two different molds. The first version's wings were not reinforced in anyway, so they were prone to breakages in some cases. The second mold which was brought into production a couple months after it was originally released rectified this problem by reinforcing the wings with a significant amount of plastic between the inside of the wings and the outside of the Track. This increased the weight of the Track to 4.3 grams, only .2 grams lighter than the third heaviest Track, GB145. The increased weight not only reduces breakages, but it also marginally helps reduce the recoil it produces.

Use in Smash Attack Customization

H145's recoil can be utilized best in combination with the extremely proficient Smash Attack Wheel Lightning, in the custom, MF Lightning LDrago H145RF. Both MF and RF help reduce the amount of recoil produced by this customization, and RF of course increases its movement speed.

Performance Tip - Semi-Defense

Main article: Performance Tip - Semi-Defense

Just as the Semi-Flat Bottom has a sharper tip than Flat, so too does Semi-Defense when compared to Defense. Before the release of SD, D was the absolute best Stamina Bottom available, but SD quickly took over the top spot, as is evidenced by the following tests:

SD is not able to wobble as much as D, so for defensive purposes, D should still be chosen over SD if you are trying to add some Stamina to your Defense custom. That being said, WD would be a better choice than D for that situation, and also arguably for Stamina as well because with the even wider tip. With it, it is allowed to circle the stadium in some situations when it is on a larger angle towards the end of a battle, thus outspinning D or SD based opponents. However, sometimes this does not happen, and SD easily knocks over the wobbling WD custom before it topples over itself.

It really comes down to personal preference when deciding whether to use SD or WD because they are so closely matched. For pure Stamina, it is impossible to tell which would win a given match, but WD would prepare you for more situations by being able to take hits better than SD. Test both and decide for yourself which one works best for what you are trying to do.
