Gravity Ball 145 is a Spin Track released by Takara Tomy. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-60 Random Booster Vol. 4 Mirage Virgo on December 26th, 2009, and in Western countries with the release of the BB-60 Earth Virgo GB145BS Starter Pack in August 2010.

Description

Gravity Ball 145 (GB145) is a wide, round Spin Track with two free moving metal balls. These balls move towards the outside of the Spin Track while spinning, causing additional spin retaining force. While the Spin Track is relatively heavy due to the inclusion of the metal balls, it has been outclassed by later releases of Stamina Type Spin Tracks.

At release Gravity Ball 145 was seen as inferior to Claw 145 (C145), due to the lack of energy-absorbing free spinning wings, making it not as effective against low attacker Beyblades, which were popular at the time. Gravity Ball 145 later found use in Defense Type combinations against Change Height 120 (CH120)-based attacker Beyblades. These types of attackers do not aim to hit the Spin Track, and thus the free spinning wings of C145 are not necessary, and instead a Beyblade could be given a significant increase in the overall weight of the customization. However, it has been outclassed for Defense Type customizations by Spin Tracks such as Boost Disk 145 (BD145).
