- This article is about Metal Accel. For its normal counterpart, see Performance Tip - Accel.
Metal Accel (メタルアクセル, Metaru Akuseru) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Superking Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-178 Random Booster Vol. 24 on February 27th, 2021.
Metal 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, Metal Accel will create an aggressive, and if launched at an angle, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Metal Accel is faster than Blow but is slower than Xtreme, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. Due to the plastic construction, Metal Accel is an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations. Furthermore, the solid construction also ensures that Metal Accel will not wear out like other Drivers such as Xtreme nor be damaged like Zephyr.
However, Metal 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 Metal Accel is liable to Self-Knock-Outs.
Like other Metal Lock Performance Tips, Metal Accel features a metal lock cap and a stronger spring lock, increasing the Performance Tip's Burst Resistance. However, due to the lock cap being made out of metal, a Layer's teeth might be damaged when this Performance Tip is used.
Like its normal counterpart, Metal Accel is outclassed by rubber Attack Drivers such as Xtreme. Furthermore, due to the Metal Lock, it can damage a Layer's teeth.
As such, Metal Accel is recommended for collection purposes only.
