Guys this is getting of VERY off topic.also
bx bursted sr 0 b br left spin on stock combo and mg 7 g at on the combo bx 0 b x .i feel bx has loads of potential ,
By the way this is from jojo’s livestream which is now on YouTube.

Imagine what it could do with X’

Kimbo, a beytuber just uploaded a bX with X', check it out, it did well I think.

Buster Xcalibur, like its predecessors, is an Attack Type Energy Layer based on the legendary sword Excalibur that features a large sword running down the length of the layer, the end of which protrudes from the bottom which acts as the primary point of contact. Unlike previous Xcalibur Layers such as Sieg Xcalibur and Xeno Xcalibur, Buster Xcalibur's contact point is very pronounced which creates heavy recoil. As part of the Super Z Layer System, Buster Xcalibur features metal in its design. in this case, the sword is made of metal, akin to its predecessor Sieg Xcalibur. However the tip of the sword is covered in plastic, to reduce the possibility of breaking the opponent's Layer. Buster Xcalibur also features a gimmick, the sword can extend further from the rest of the Layer in "Buster Mode".

The inclusion of metal increases the weight of the Layer, granting higher inertia that increases both Knock-Out and Burst Attack as well as increasing the Layer's Burst resistance as the high inertia resists teeth skipping, a property that compliments the tall teeth of the Japanese release. However the asymmetrical design of the metal sword means that this Layer is incredibly unbalanced, a trait that drains the Stamina of combinations and can break a combination's banking pattern. Furthermore, the shape of the Layer makes it a very poor choice for Opposite Spin match-ups.

Due to the nature of the gimmick, the recoil of Buster Xcalibur can be adjusted by either retracting or extending the sword, the latter of which also exposes the slot for a Level Chip. However, due to the Layer's design and purpose, it is recommended to have the Layer in "Buster Mode". Like other Super Z Layers, Buster Xcalibur is unbalanced 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.

==Use in Attack Combinations==
Buster Xcalibur can be used in the Attack Combination Buster Xcalibur 0/1/1'/7/10 Bump/Meteor/Star/Cross/Glaive Xtreme/Xtreme'/Jolt/Atomic/Trans/Needle. The heavy weight of 0/1/1'/7/10 Bump/Meteor bolsters Buster Xcalibur's Burst potential while the Layer's strong teeth and weight can compensate for the increased Burst risk. Xtreme/Xtreme' makes the combination a Mobile Attack Type and its high speed further increases Burst potential while its friction can reduce the risk of banking pattern loss by Buster Xcalibur's unbalanced nature. Atomic makes the combination a Stationary Attack Type and its stability and Stamina can off set the low Stamina posed by Buster Xcalibur's unbalanced nature while Atomic's free spinning ring and the Cross/Glaive/Star Frame adds Life-After-Death which can allow the combination to potentially out spin the opponent if a Burst is not achieved. Trans is capable of performing both tasks but at the cost of possible pattern loss in Attack Mode and stability and Stamina loss in Stamina mode. Needle can improve Attack potential early in battle with it's movement and its tabs and studs improves recoil control.

==Overall==
Buster Xcalibur features a recoil heavy design, heavy weight and strong teeth making it a top-tier Energy Layer for attack combinations. While the unbalanced design is liable to throwing off a combination's banking pattern and reducing stamina, its high Burst potential makes it on par with, if not greater than Winning Valkyrie in same spin match-ups. However, Buster Xcalibur lags behind Winning Valkyrie in Opposite Spin match-ups.

As such, Buster Xcalibur is a must have for competitive bladers.

I ask 1234Beyblade, he said that Buster Xcalibur is better than Winning Valkyrie in same spin match-ups but is terrible in opposite spin. Which is pretty par for the course with the Xcalibur Line.
Would wV still be a more rounded choice for Attack then?

Also, is bX's weight known yet? There's probably a post on that that I've skimmed over.

Yeah, it weighs 19.6 grams according to the Beywiki.

True, I just got my Buster Xcalibur, it bursted Revive Phoenix and Spriggan Reqiuem on 0-Bump, Bearing on some occasions and knocked Hell Salamander on 0-Bump Atomic out of the stadium, I guess that's the only way to beat left-spinning beyblades, the right timing and impact? It's having a hard time beating aH though.
Buster Xcalibur is having a hard time getting on the wiki don’t you think?

I read this draft and I think this is ready to approve.

Furthermore, the shape of the Layer makes it a very poor choice for Opposite Spin match-ups. Finally, Buster Xcalibur is so unbalanced that it cannot be used with unbalanced Discs such as 1, else it will lose Stamina too quickly to be effective in battle.

Due to the nature of the gimmick, the recoil of Buster Xcalibur can be adjusted by either retracting or extending the sword. However, the locking mechanism for the gimmick is weak, meaning that Buster Xcalibur is prone to switching to "Buster Mode" midway through the battle even if it was set to "Normal Mode". Like other Super Z Layers and previous Xcalibur Layers, Buster Xcalibur is unbalanced which increases Burst risk and drains Stamina. Due to how unbalanced Buster Xcalibur is, these issues cannot be solved with the use of a Level Chip that fits underneath the Layer.

Buster Xcalibur features a recoil heavy design, heavy weight and strong teeth making it a top-tier Energy Layer for attack combinations. While the unbalanced design is liable to throwing off a combination's banking pattern and reducing stamina, its high Burst potential makes it on par with, if not greater than Winning Valkyrie in same spin match-ups. However, Buster Xcalibur lags behind Winning Valkyrie in Opposite Spin match-ups. Furthermore, with the release of Cho-Z Valkyrie, Cho-Z Achilles and the Slash Base of the Gatinko Layer System, Buster Xcalibur has become outclassed.

As such, Buster Xcalibur is not a must have, but is instead a welcome addition to any blader's collection.
Okay, it’s better than I expected
I think there’s an error on the wiki:

However, the locking mechanism for the gimmick is weak, meaning that Buster Xcalibur is prone to switching to "Buster Mode" midway through the battle even if it was set to "Normal Mode".

Shouldn’t Buster and Normal be switched in this statement?
