Exceed Evil-eye 2Glaive Weight (エクシードイビルアイ・ツーグレイブ・ウエイト, Ekushīdo Ibiruai Tsū Gureibu Ueito) is a Stamina Type Beyblade released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in Japan on April 29th, 2017 for 972円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 6 Tornado Wyvern.4G.At.
Energy Layer - Exceed Evil-eye
Main article: Energy Layer - Exceed Evil-eye
Takara Tomy's Exceed Evil-eye is a Defense Type Energy Layer with the center of it featuring the head of a Horned Serpent and molding akin to the Iris of the Eye, representing the Layer's namesake; Evil-eye.
The Layer's perimeter is made up of six blades, three made of colored plastic and three made of clear plastic. The colored blades are wide and make up most of the perimeter, while the clear blades are small and party fill up the gaps in between the colored blades, creating a design akin to the Smash Turtle Attack Ring from the Original Plastic Generation.
Despite the resemblance, Exceed Evil-eye has poor performance due to the Layer's mediocre teeth and recoil inducing design caused the large gaps. However, the shape allows Exceed Evil-eye to act as a consistent counter against Maximum Garuda, catching into Maximum Garuda's notches and Bursting it, though such usefulness is niche.
Forge Disc - 2
Main article: Forge Disc - 2
2, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion with "2" shaped molding on either side of the protrusion. 2 has a standard weight distribution and an average weight among Core Discs, these features allow it to act as a "Jack-of-All-Trades", capable of performing well in any type of Combination. While other Core Discs such as 4 and 7 can work better for Attack, Defense and Stamina, 2 works as an excellent alternative if those Core Discs are unavailable.
Disc Frame - Glaive
Main article: Disc Frame - Glaive
Glaive is a mostly round Disc Frame with two sharp, wave like protrusions on either side. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer in battle, the round shape of Glaive grants high Life-After-Death while the upwards direction of the protrusions ensure they do not scrape along the stadium floor. While Cross has greater Life-After-Death, Glaive is still comparable.
Performance Tip - Weight
Main article: Performance Tip - Weight
Weight features a ball shaped tip made of metal, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Metal Ball Performance Tip, surrounded by a plastic ridge.
Like Metal Ball, the metal tip is meant to decrease friction with the stadium floor and improve Stability and Knock-Out Resistance by lowering the center of balance with its weight and the plastic ridge is meant to provide Life-After-Death with its smooth perimeter.
In practice however, the shape and diameter of the ball creates a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in battle if hard launched, bringing the Beyblade close to the Tornado Ridge. Due to the low friction of the metal, a Beyblade in this state becomes much easier to Knock-Out. A secondary weakness is the plastic ridge, its low positioning means that it is easy for it to contact the stadium floor which exacerbates the aforementioned issue and drains Stamina.
While Weight's sheer weight can improve Knock-Out Defense, it's mitigated by the low friction of metal and rarity of Knock-Outs in the Burst metagame.
