Face Bolt - L-Drago II
Main article: Face Bolt - L-Drago II
The L-Drago II Face Bolt depicts "Draco", one of the 88 constellations in space. The design features a dragon facing the left. Unlike the L-Drago I Face Bolt, L-Drago II depicts a more detailed dragon design, with the "L-Drago" text replaced with claws.
Energy Ring - L-Drago Assault
Main article: Energy Ring - L-Drago Assault
Like L-Drago II, the L-Drago Assault Energy Ring can switch between two modes by changing the position of the Energy Ring on the Fusion Wheel, in this case, Meteo. Like L-Drago II, these modes are "Assault Mode" and "Barrage Mode"; however, as L-Drago Assault lacks the rubber and thus the spin-steal capability of L-Drago II, the differences between these two modes are negligible.
Fusion Wheel - Meteo
Main article: Fusion Wheel - Meteo
Meteo features six protrusions of an alternating pattern between "jaws" and "claws". It is a small Fusion Wheel, as most of the contact points include the rubber from L-Drago II for spin steal. The jaw protrusion is smooth, while the claw protrusion is rugged. Meteo is meant to solely interact with L-Drago II and its variants (Assault and Rush) and cannot be used with other Energy Rings. L-Drago II can be placed in two different positions on top of Meteo to switch between modes: Assault Mode, where L-Drago II's dragon heads cover the claws, and Barrage Mode, where the heads cover the jaws.
Spin Track - 85
Main article: Spin Track - 85
85 is the lowest Spin Track available and thus, the best Spin Track for low attackers due to its Attack and Stamina capabilities. However, 85's low height causes it to scrape the stadium floor when it begins to lose spin. Due to this, some prefer to use 90 over 85. However, if placed with tall Performance Tips, like Rubber Flat (RF), 85 can avoid floor scrapes as much as possible. Although 85 can be countered with Spin Tracks like TH170 and 230, it still remains an excellent Spin Track for Attack Type customizations. However, low-attacker Spin Tracks like 85 and 90 have fallen into disuse with the release of Flame Byxis 230WD and Hades Kerbecs BD145DS, as their Spin Tracks are immune to low attackers.
Performance Tip - Extreme Flat
Main article: Performance Tip - Extreme Flat
Extreme Flat (XF) is the second widest "Flat" Peformance Tip currently available, the first being Giga Flat (GF). Due to its wide surface, Extreme Flat has fast and aggressive movement, similar to Right Rubber Flat (R2F). However, as it is made of plastic rather than rubber, it has greater stamina and not as much grip. Extreme Flat is overall a superb Attack Type Performance Tip, and when combined with a low track such as 85, which it is often paired with, it makes a powerful low attacker combo.
- This is the first Beyblade to have the 85 and XF combo. The second was Mercury Anubius 85XF, and the third was Omega Dragonis 85XF.
