- This article is about Accel'. For its normal counterpart, see Performance Tip - Accel.
Accel' (アクセルダッシュ, Akuseru Dasshu) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-00 wbba. Store Exclusive Booster Archer Hercules 10Cross Accel' on November 24th, 2018.
Accel' features a plastic flat tip with a small diameter, akin to Flat from Metal Fight Beyblade, and sits at the standard height. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter "A" for easy differentiation from other Drivers. Due to the surface area, Accel' will create an aggressive, and if launched at an angle, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Accel' is faster than Blow but is slower than Xtreme, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. Due to the plastic construction, Accel' is an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations. Furthermore, the solid construction also ensures that Accel' will not wear out like other Tips such as Xtreme nor be damaged like Zephyr.
However, Accel''s plastic construction is also a weakness as Attack Combinations using Accel' can lose their Banking Pattern somewhat easily, especially if the Combinations are unbalanced. Furthermore, the low friction means that Accel' is liable to Self-Knock-Outs.
Unlike its predecessor, Accel' features a much thicker spring in its locking mechanism, increasing Accel''s Burst Resistance.
Use in Attack Combinations
Accel' can be used in the Attack Combination Cho-Z Valkyrie/Cho-Z Achilles/Winning Valkyrie 0/00/10/8/7 Bump/Turn/Meteor Accel'. The heavy weight of 0/00/10/8/7 Bump/Turn/Meteor bolsters the Attack potential of Cho-Z Valkyrie/Cho-Z Achilles/Winning Valkyrie while the Layer's weight, strong teeth and gimmick compensates for the Burst risk. If one struggles to control rubber tips at the spin speeds needed to activate Cho-Z Valkyrie/Cho-Z Achilles' gimmick, then Accel' can be used instead with the Combination's high spin speeds compensating for the slower movement.
Like its predecessor, Accel' is a viable Driver if one struggles to control rubber Drivers such as Xtreme, Hunter, and Jolt. Furthermore, with the stronger spring lock, Accel' can be used on Layers with weak teeth, giving it greater versatility.
As such, Accel' is a welcome addition to any blader's collection.
