Roktavor R4 11 Wedge-S is a Stamina Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the SlingShock System. It was released in western countries as a part of the Thorns-X Minoboros M4 & Roktavor R4 Dual Pack.
Energy Layer - Roktavor R4
Main article: Energy Layer - Roktavor R4
Roktavor R4 is a round Energy Layer designed for Stamina. Consisting of four wings, two of which are small and made of clear plastic and two of which are large are made of colored plastic, akin to its predecessor Blaze Ragnaruk. The large wings are molded to create the visage of heads to match the anime's rendition of the Layer's beast, a winged demon. As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Crash Ragnaruk features metal in its design; in this case, concentrated on the wings.
The compact placement of the wings creates a very round design where any protrusions and gaps from and between the wings are too shallow to create high recoil. The large size of the metal laced wings improves Stamina Potential by creating high Outward Weight Distribution. Furthermore, Roktavor R4 keeps the same "Stamina Wings" gimmick from its predecessor Blaze Ragnaruk. In Crash Ragnaruk however, the "Stamina Wings" are made of metal, and while the movement action has no effect in battle, the weight of the metal does increase Stamina.
However, the Takara Tomy release of Crash Ragnaruk features four teeth of only medium-short height which severely reduces the Layer's Burst resistance. However, Roktavor R4's heavy weight and the round, low recoil perimeter can compensate to create tournament acceptable Burst resistance.
Like many other Cho-Z Layers, Crash Ragnaruk is unbalanced, though not to the same degree as others, which increases Burst risk and drains Stamina. However, these issues can be solved with the use of a Level Chip that fits underneath the Layer.
Forge Disc - 11
Main article: Forge Disc - 11
11, unlike most other odd numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Frame. Each side features one large protrusion to create the visage of an "11" with one protrusion featuring a large "1" shaped indent to create an unbalanced design, however the shallow depth of the indent creates no noticeable effect. Compared to other Core Discs, 11 is one of the lightest, even lighter than most non-Core Discs. This light weight severely hinders 11's Attack, Defense and Stamina potential and while the light weight would create high Burst resistance, the heavy weight of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System and the Cho-Z Layer System makes the use of lightweight Discs for Burst resistance obsolete.
Performance Tip - Wedge-S
Main article: Performance Tip - Wedge-S
Wedge-S, as its name implies, is a SlingShock Performance Tip based off of Takara Tomy’s Wedge. However, unlike the original Wedge, Wedge-S' low-angled cone tip is made of colored plastic, has a larger metal cylinder base, and features two tabs on either side of the the colored plastic base, which is meant for the activation of its “SlingShock Mode”. As a part of the SlingShock System, Wedge-S can be manually altered to switch between “Battle Ring Mode” and “SlingShock Mode”; in this case, by pushing one of the tabs to the other side, and vice-versa.
