Face Bolt - Sagittario II

Sagittario II Face Bolt

The Face Bolt is basically the evolved version of Flame Sagittario's Face Bolt. The arrow and eyes of Sagittario have become bolder, and "SGTO" mark has been removed. It has a bright yellowish-orange background (resembling a flash of light) on a translucent orange Face Bolt.

Energy Ring - Sagittario II

Sagittario II has somewhat of resemblance to the original Sagittaro Energy Ring but is more circular with fewer bumps and curves as a result. Sagittario II even bears resemblance to Flame, mostly in it's circular shape and has the stylized 'points' the Flame Wheel have. Sagittario II is a translucent gold, similar to Quetzalcoatl and has red, white, and blue decals, similar to that of the flags of many nations. It is amongst the heaviest Energy Rings, which makes it great for Defense customisations. It also has arrows on each side of it.

Fusion Wheel - Flash

  • Total Weight: 45.6 grams

Metal Frame

Flash's Metal Frame resembles the original Flame Fusion Wheel. It is in an oval shape. It's underside is hollow, and due to this, weight is lost.


The core resembles the Metal Frame, but looking slightly more like a circle. It retains it's bows and small spikes though.

Like other 4D Metal Wheel, Flash is able to change modes. 'Attack Mode', where the Wheel takes an oval shape reminiscent of its original form, Saggittario (Pre-HWS). By simply turning the Metal Frame sideways, Flash enters 'Stamina Mode', where Flash takes a layered resemblance, looking like it's previous form, Flame Saggittario. Because of the ovular Frame and Core being stacked in opposite directions, this mode looks more like a circle compared to the oval-like shape of Attack Mode.

Stamina Mode doesn't hold too much Stamina to stay up long because the Wheel has too many points of weight distribution,having about four or five,and can be easily knocked out of the Stadium because of its light weight,but this means that Sagittario becomes faster the more it moves.And since Attack Mode only has two points of weight distribution, not only does it hold more Stamina than Stamina Mode, but is overall much better. However, since Attack Mode is an oval-like shape it catches the wind and reducing rotation speed,followed that when the Frame and the Core are combined into one,it becomes much more heavier than Stamina Mode,making it vulnerable to lose Stamina if the Wheel is in contact with the stadium floor.It has found great use in Attack customizations with its minimum recoil. It also does a great job at pushing opposing beys; staggering them into a corner and losing their balance. It also has less chances of being knocked out compared to other top-tier Attack Wheels like Variares, Beat and Fang.

Spin Track - 230

Main article: Spin Track - 230

230 is the tallest Spin Track released in the Metal Saga toyline. It was first released with Flame Byxis 230WD as part of the Maximum Series, and was advertised as the "Maximum Height" for Spin Tracks. 230 has six indents near the top that sharpen downwards to the middle of the Spin Track. 230 is rounder and thicker than other regular Spin Tracks with no gimmicks, in order to protect it structurally when it comes into contact with opposing Fusion Wheels. Its round and smooth shape results in significantly less recoil than if it were based on the traditional hexagonal Spin Track shape.

Since 230 is so tall, it can wobble at great lengths for extra Stamina, defeating various Stamina Type customizations with lower Tracks. From a defensive viewpoint, 230 uses its height as an advantage to protect itself from low incoming Attacks, by protecting the Fusion Wheel from major contact while using the reinforced plastic to absorb most of the shock. As a result of this, 230 can defeat most low Attack customizations under the 120 height when paired with other top-tier Defense parts.

230 also has some notable weaknesses, however. As a Defense Type Spin Track, 230 is extremely susceptible to tall Spin Track opposite spin Attack Type customizations. Additionally, 230 is outclassed by the likes of Triple Height 170 (TH170), which offers the same height and also the versatility of the height change gimmick.

Performance Tip - Wide Defense

Main article: Performance Tip - Wide Defense

Wide Defense (WD) retains the two curved holes D contained but are now thinner, smaller and found on the Sharp tip.

Being wider brings advantages and disadvantages to WD. An advantage is being able to conserve better Stamina than D and SD, due to the more surface area as well as being able to spin at a lower spin-rate that that of D or SD which cannot. A disadvantage however, is that it is worse at regaining balance than D. The wide shape gives WD a harder time to regain its balance whereas, D does it much easier. This should take into consideration when using a Spin Track such as 230 or TH170. D would be a better choice than WD as it would regain balance much easier to help cope with 230. However, while D can regain balance better, it cannot maintain it as well as WD, especially with the heights of 170 and above.

At release, WD has found quick use as a Stamina-Type Tip, much better than D and has become top-tier. Despite this however, as many more Performance Tips like AS, EWD, and B:D were released; they have overshadowed WD. EWD has also overshadowed WD due to EWD's bearing to regain balance better and much better Stamina. W²D performs basically the same as WD though but with worse balance but better attack.

Wide Defense (WD) has significant defensive capabilities as well, but because it still uses a form of sharp tip, its friction with the stadium floor is decreased, which as a result makes it easier to knock around than a Tip like WB which has much more friction with the stadium floor. But since it can recover quickly, it does not matter.

Some Bladers experience a fast movement from Wide Defense, allowing the Wide Defense tip with fast movement to be paired with high-recoil fusion wheels such as Vulcan, Beat, Fang, Spiral, Flash, or Variares, to create powerful, or even a 1-Hit KO Attack-type combos, or be paired with low-recoil fusion wheels such as Bakushin, Duo, Gravity (Perseus Stamina), Fusion, Wing, Death to create counter-attacking Defense-Type combos.

  • This is the third time that the 230WD combination has been released: First with Flame Byxis 230WD, then Duo Uranus 230WD.
  • Flash Sagittario was the last new Beyblade shown in the Metal Saga anime trilogy (Metal Fusion, Metal Masters, Metal Fury), which is interesting because the first Beyblade shown in the trilogy was its predecessor, Flame Sagittario C145S.
