Bearing Core 2 is a Running Core released as part of the Heavy Metal System. It debuted with the release of Jiraiya MS.

Description

Bearing Core 2 is the successor to Wolborg 2's SG Bearing Version 2. It is essentially the same design as Wolborg MS's Bearing Core, except that instead of having a plastic tip, it has a hard rubber tip to add Defense ability. The plastic casing of the RC appears to be the same mold, but the tip design makes Bearing Core 2 slightly taller than Bearing Core.

The rubber itself is slightly hard and more similar to the rubber used on Dragoon MF's Metal Weight Grip Flat Core rather than the Grip Flat Cores of Dragoon MS and Dragoon MS UV. This allows it to keep more Survival ability than a softer rubber would, but also decreases the Defense ability drastically.

In Tornado Balance Type S, it's impossible to use Bearing Core for Survival-types. The smaller stadium makes it too easy to knock out. If you need to use a bearing tip in this stadium, you should use Bearing Core 2. However, even in that situation this RC may not have enough Defense to survive powerful attackers. However, for beating strong Attack Bladers in larger stadiums, this RC is a great choice.

Use in Survival/Defense Customisation

You can build good Survival and Defense-type Beyblades with this RC. Here are some examples:

This is not an exhaustive list of strong combos that can be built with Bearing Core 2. You should try your own combinations and see what works best for you.

Tuning: Tip Condition

Mint Condition: A mint condition tip will have more Survival ability, but less Defense. It should be used to defeat less aggressive Beyblades. In Tornado Balance Type S, a mint condition's Defense-ability will generally be too low to withstand attacks. You should consider using Wolborg MS's Bearing Core for situations where a mint tip seems appropriate.

Worn Condition: You can wear down Bearing Core 2's tip quickly through natural play. A worn down tip will have more Defense ability. Generally, for situations where Bearing Core 2 is a better choice than Bearing Core, a worn tip will work better.
