I saw the other draft closed, and all of the parts are already written, so yeah.

| image = Bb-86-b.jpg
| full item name = Counter Escolpio 145D
| item number = BB-86
| beyblade system = [[Metal Fight Beyblade#Hybrid Wheel System | Hybrid Wheel System]]
| beyblade type = [[Defense]]

'''Note:''' This Beyblade was re-named "'''''Counter Scorpio 145D'''''" and released as a Starter instead of inside a Set by [[Hasbro]].

==Face: Escolpio==

The Face on this Beyblade depicts Scorpio, the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac. In Hasbro's release, the "Escolpio" writing is smudged.

==Clear Wheel: Escolpio==
*'''Weight:''' 2.3 grams
The Escolpio Clear Wheel is of a black colour, featuring 2 "Stingers" on opposing ends of the Clear Wheel. It is the second lightest Clear Wheel available. Due to Escolpio's small shape and slopes, using Escolpio increases contact with the Metal Wheel, and decreases contact with the Clear Wheel. This is particularly useful for increasing a Beyblade's [[Smash Attack]] and its potential to destabilize the opposing Beyblade.

===Use in Attack Customization===

Escolpio can be used in the powerful Smash Attack combination ''Flash Escolpio GB145RF/R²F''.

==Metal Wheel: Counter==
*'''Weight:''' 29.2 Grams

Counter is styled like a HWS version of the Metal System [[Leone 145D | Leone]]. It possesses six similar mane-like projections that coronate its circumference. The gaps between the six projections are too small to provide consistent smash for a competitive [[Attack]] Customization. Counter still showcases fair [[Smash Attack]], but unlike Leone, it lacks the same degree of recoil. This is because the projecting paws are more compact and rounded than its counterpart’s. The lowered recoil makes it a better, albeit underwhelming, choice for a defensive combo.

===Use in Attack Customization===
If you somehow lack access to competitive wheels, Counter can be used to some degree of effectiveness in Smash Attack customs such as ''MF Counter Bull H145RF''.

==Track: 145==

145, along with its variants (C145, DF145, etc.), was once the highest Track available, until the 230 Track was released with [[Flame Byxis 230WD | Flame Byxis]]. It can be used in Stamina customs to great effect due to its tall height, which allows for more wobbling as the Beyblade loses its [[spin velocity]]. However, gimmick-paired Tracks like [[Hell Kerbecs BD145DS|BD145]] have immensely outclassed their original bare variant, on top of several taller gimmick Tracks surpassing 145 as well against heavy, mid-height Attackers. Even in Stamina battles, 145 does not offer enough balance: Tracks like [[Gravity Perseus AD145WD|AD145]] and [[Samurai Ifraid W145CF|W145]] provide a good center of gravity, and aid with a slight downforce to maintain stability.

==Bottom: Defense==
{| class="wikitable"

|<font size="1">8.89 mm</font>
|<font size="1"><b>Tip Height:</b></font>
|<font size="1">7.59 mm</font>

This is a Defense Bottom, which acts as a wider version of a Sharp tip. When hit by an opponent, a Beyblade with this Bottom will have lessened recoil and will recover from attacks more efficiently than a Sharp Tip. However, while recovering, the Defense Bottom will cause the Beyblade to lose some stamina, caused by the added friction.

===Use in Stamina customization===

D can be put to use in the combination ''Duo Cygnus 230D''. D is a superior choice for 230 because it retains balance more easily than WD.

==Other Versions==
*'''Rock Scorpio T125JB''' - Hasbro BEYBLADE: Metal Fusion Starter
*'''Poison Scorpio M145Q''' - Hasbro BEYBLADE: Metal Fusion Burning Firestrike Faceoff Set (Opaque dark gray Clear Wheel)

This Beyblade features two top tier parts: 145 and D. However, considering these parts can be found in more useful releases '''this Beyblade should only be bought for collection purposes.'''

Scythe bull 230D is outclassed. Also mention that counter is small compared to other MWs. Also in the 145 section, don't call 145 bare, call it ungimicked.
I kinda actually agree with AZL... the D section was written a while ago (like, a couple years), and I think it should be replaced with Duo now that the meta has significantly evolved. :\

EDIT: Woah! You changed it while I was replying! Tongue_out
Hm, go ahead and publish it, but I will need to work on that Counter description.
OK, great. I'll get it done in the morning.
OK, the article is up.
