Roktavor Central Accel, known as Ragnaruk Central Accel (ラグナルク・セントラル・アクセル, Ragunaruku Sentoraru Akuseru) in Japan, is an Attack Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System. It was released as a Booster in Japan on July 18th, 2015 for 800円 and was later released in western countries as a Single Pack.
Energy Layer - Roktavor
Main article: Energy Layer - Roktavor
Roktavor is a rugged looking Energy Layer that bears a striking resemblance to Seaborg's Whale Attacker, featuring two flat, blunt protrusions with smaller, pointier trailing edges. Unlike most other Energy Layers that incorporate some sort of slope or relief, Roktavor has a nearly-uniform thickness throughout the Layer. The majority of Roktavor's weight is packed behind its two primary contact points, which, coupled with the shape of these protrusions, provide the Layer with a considerable amount of Burst Attack. However, these same features also subject Roktavor to large amounts of rotational recoil during a collision as well. As Ragnaruk has only three average sized teeth and one small tooth, is is unable to handle its own recoil and tends to Burst quite often, making it practically nonviable in competitive play.
Forge Disc - Central
Main article: Forge Disc - Central
Central features a thickened central ring and a thinned perimeter meant to create a Centralized Weight Distribution. The centralized weight is meant to increase spin velocity which has numerous effects on performance:
If used on Attack Combinations, the higher spin velocity will increase the force of impact. If used on Defense Combinations, the centralized weight will increase KO resistance.
While Central has an indent on once side to prevent this Disc from being perfectly balanced, it is not the main downfall of this Disc. What prevents this Disc from being competitive is the light weight which makes any effect from the Centralized Weight Distribution negligible at best as there is too little mass for effective Attack potential and too little mass for effective KO resistance.
Performance Tip - Accel
Main article: Performance Tip - Accel
Accel features a flat plastic tip with a small diameter akin to the Flat Performance Tip from Metal Fight Saga and the Flat Running Core from HMS and sits at a standard height. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter A for easy differentiation from other Drivers. Accel performs as a standard flat tip and when launched straight, it catches onto the Tornado Ridge and rapidly circles the stadium, eventually moving closer to the center of the arena when it has less Spin Velocity. Alternatively, if launched with a Sliding Shoot, it will be able to maintain a flower pattern and cross the center of the stadium a few times at high Spin Velocity.
With the introduction of Xtreme, Accel's usefulness in Attack Combinations has been reduced. Even though it has more Stamina and is a lot more controllable, it has less speed and power in comparison to Drivers like Xtreme and even Hunter. Due to these reasons it is outclassed for Attack Combinations but it is still the second best Driver for Mobile Stamina Combinations, only being outclassed by Zephyr in that Department. Unlike the fragile Zephyr which is known for breakage and denting problems with constant use, Accel does not suffer from such problems. While Zephyr has better Stamina than Accel, due to its fragility issues and the fact that the difference in their performance is negligible, Accel is an excellent substitute for Zephyr.
All the parts composing this Beyblade either have niche uses or no purpose at all. Roktavor and Central are unable to be used competitively. Therefore, there is no reason to purchase this Beyblade outside of collection purposes.
