Satomb S3 Yell Spiral, known as Kreis Satan Yell Spiral (クライスサタン・エール・スパイラル, Kuraisu Satan Ēru Supairaru) in Japan, is an Attack Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It was released in Japan in July 15th, 2017 for 972円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 7 Maximum Garuda.8F.Fl.
Energy Layer - Satomb S3
Main article: Energy Layer - Satomb S3
Satomb S3 is a round and thick Energy Layer designed for Defense. Off of the side of the God Chip is a face that is meant to depict this Layer's namesake, the Biblical fallen angel Satan. Consisting of a hexagonal inner layer made of clear plastic and three large wings molded to include three small blades made of colored plastic, the compact placement and direction of the blades creates a low recoil design. Gaps exist in between each wing so every other corner of the inner layer can house this Energy Layer's gimmick; three small rollers.
In theory, the rollers are meant to deflect the opponent's attacks by rolling with the opponent's Layer, but in practice the small size of the rollers makes them ineffective for such a purpose. Not only that but the gaps needed to house the gimmick create points of recoil and while at first glance the rollers appear to fill the gap to nullify recoil, on closer inspection the rollers create points of recoil due to sticking out from the perimeter.
The Takara Tomy release of Kreis Satan features four teeth, the first being medium in length and the next three being medium tall in length. These teeth, combined with the moderately low recoil design, give this Layer both high Burst and KO resistance. However, the bulky design cripples Stamina giving Satomb S3 Combinations a high risk of being Out Spun and the recoil inducing wheels make Satomb S3 lag behind Alter Chronos and Maximum Garuda.
Forge Disc - Yell
Main article: Forge Disc - Yell
Yell features a ring with a wide diameter, greater than Spread and equal to Polish, and a thick metal star in the center to create a centralized weight, akin to Central. 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.
Combined with the wide, circular perimeter and the raised position of the ring, Yell will also grant high Life After Death and increase procession time. However, the centralized weight creates numerous drawbacks as well:
The centralized weight will reduce movement speed in Attack Combinations making it ill-suited for Mobile Combinations and the lack of Outward Weight Distribution gives Defense and Stamina Combinations poor spin retention.
Performance Tip - Spiral
Main article: Performance Tip - Spiral
Spiral is a flat tip with spikes protruding outwards and pointing to the left, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Left Flat Performance Tip. Like Left Flat, Spiral creates high speed, greater than Assault, with its large surface area. However, due to the wide tip and the fact that the tip is made out of plastic, Spiral is incapable of maintaining a banking pattern and the rough perimeter creates poor Stamina issues as well. The tip therefore, essentially spins around its opponent, wasting what little Stamina it has.
