Face Bolt: Virgo

Main article: Face Bolt - Virgo

The Face Bolt depicts "Virgo", the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac and one of the 88 constellations in space. The word "Virgo" is written in stylized letters below a head representing Virgo. The initial Hasbro release of this Face Bolt fills in the letters, while later releases such as Night Virgo DF145BS replace the letters with a swoosh instead.

Energy Ring: Virgo

Main article: 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

Bottom Spike's performance is quite similar to that of S. Bottom Spike offers very little movement and as such gives no Attack potential. The pointed tip allows for very little friction between the Bottom and the stadium surface, which helps prevent the loss of Spin Velocity. Bottom Spike has decent Stamina, but because the tip is so fine, it experiences the same balance issues that S does. D, SD, and WD are much better choices.

Overall

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