Energy Ring: Virgo

Virgo was first released in a translucent yellow tint. Virgo has a smooth, easily flowing design to emulate a woman's hair, and features a small notch on both sides.

Fusion Wheel: Earth

Main article: Fusion Wheel - Earth
Earth has four thick, textured wings surrounding its perimeter, with each pair facing each other on a slight incline. The space created between the wings is quite small, and the resulting effect is similar to any Wheel that has no spaces: minimal recoil. Though it is on the lighter side of Metal Wheels, its almost unperturbed circular design, and minimal recoil made it one of the best, Defense-oriented Wheels available for competitive play. However, it has since been severely outclassed by the extremely heavy 4D Metal Wheels and Zero-G Chrome Wheels paired in Synchrom, such as Duo, Revizer and Genbull.

Spin Track: Gravity Ball 145

Main article: Spin Track - GB145
Gravity Ball 145 (GB145) is a wide, round Spin Track with two free moving metal balls. These balls move towards the outside of the Spin Track while spinning, causing additional spin retaining force. While the Spin Track is relatively heavy due to the inclusion of the metal balls, it has been outclassed by later releases of Stamina Type Spin Tracks.

At release Gravity Ball 145 was seen as inferior to Claw 145 (C145), due to the lack of energy-absorbing free spinning wings, making it not as effective against low attacker Beyblades, which were popular at the time. Gravity Ball 145 later found use in Defense Type combinations against Change Height 120 (CH120)-based attacker Beyblades. These types of attackers do not aim to hit the Spin Track, and thus the free spinning wings of C145 are not necessary, and instead a Beyblade could be given a significant increase in the overall weight of the customization. However, it has been outclassed for Defense Type customizations by Spin Tracks such as Boost Disk 145 (BD145).

Performance Tip: Ball Sharp

Main article: Performance Tip - BS

BS offers very little movement and provides no Attack potential. The pointed tip is supposed to allow very little friction between the Performance Tip and the stadium surface, which is used to help prevent the loss of spin velocity. However, BS has a low amount of Stamina, being beaten by many attack type tips in stamina battles. It also experiences the balance issues that the S series bottoms share because its tip is so fine. It is not recommended to use in competitive battles. D, WD, S and SD are better choices.

Overall

Earth Virgo GB145BS is comprised of mostly outclassed parts, and only GB145 holds enough potential in a contemporary metagame.
