This article is about the Takara Tomy release. For the Hasbro release, see Fusion Wheel - Blitz (Hasbro).

Blitz (ブリッツ, Burittsu) is a Fusion Wheel released by Takara Tomy as part of the 4D System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-117 Strongest Blader Set on August 6, 2011. It debuted in western countries with the release of the BB-117-FX Spark FX Starter Pack Blitz Striker 100RSF.

Description

Blitz is a 4D Metal Wheel that consists of two parts: the Metal Frame and the Core. Like other 4D Metal Wheels, Blitz can be switched between two different modes by readjusting the Metal Frame on the Core: "Assault Attack Mode" and "Barrage Attack Mode". In Assault Attack Mode, the protrusions on each side of the Metal Frame fit against the six contact points of the Core, creating a total of three wings on each side. In Barrage Attack Mode, the protrusions are separated by rotating the Metal Frame, creating six wings in total, with three long and three short wings. These are however shorter than the three wings of the Assault Attack Mode. The Assault Attack Mode is preferable between the two, as it has less recoil and more consistent contact with the enemy Beyblade.

Metal Frame

  • Weight: 12.6 grams

The Metal Frame of this 4D Metal Wheel is the piece that acts as the primary mechanism behind its mode change. It has three small protrusions, which fit in with the gaps in the Core, and the protrusions are smaller than each protrusion on the Core.

Core

  • Weight: 31.1 grams

Blitz's Core has three separate primary contact points, whereupon the metal slopes down and outward into a finer surface, creating "bumps" on the front-most portion of each wing segment. These slopes provide an advantage in the form of allowing maximum contact with the primary contact points, and often throwing the opposing Fusion Wheel slightly off balance when used on a lower Spin Track.

Overall

Blitz was once considered a top-tier Right Spin Smash Attack Fusion Wheel, with its ability to perform a solid knockout even at a low spin velocity. However, Blitz also suffers from high recoil, and as such is weak to Left Spin Beyblades such as L-Drago. Heavier and more aggressive Fusion Wheels such as Flash were later released, outclassing Blitz, which was already the second choice to Variares for Attack Type combinations. With the release of Synchrome System parts, which introduced heavy Defense Type parts, Blitz has become severely outclassed.

As such, Blitz is recommended for collection purposes only.
