Quote:==Description==
Hell Salamander is a Balance Type Energy Layer with ten blades. The top of the Layer features a dragon's head meant to representing the anime's rendition of this Layer's Beast, a dragon, and the Layer's Japanese namesake; the mythical Salamander which feeds on and lives in fire.

As part of the Super-Z Layer System, Hell Salamander features metal in its design; in this case, five of the ten blades are lined with metal. The inclusion of metal makes Hell Salamander heavier than most God/Switch-Strike Layers.

Hell Salamander also features gimmicks; the Layer is Left Spin and the blades can move to create two modes, "Defense Mode" and "Attack Mode".

In Defense Mode, the metal and plastic blades are kept apart which reduces the gap in between the blades and creates a rounder, lower recoil design. This, combined with the Left Spin nature of Hell Salamander, reduces recoil against right spin opponents due to the Layers acting akin to gears which heavily reduces the rate of Bursts. Furthermore, the clockwise direction of the blades also reduce recoil, even against other Left Spin opponents.

In Attack Mode, the metal and plastic blades become consolidated into five blades which increases the gap in between the blades and creates a more aggressive, recoil heavier design. However, due to Hell Salamander's Left Spin nature, recoil potential is significantly reduced against right spin opponents. Furthermore, the increase in gap length between the blades is minimal and the obtuse angle and clockwise direction of the blades further reduces recoil, even against other Left Spin opponents.

==Overall==

I'm dubious about the Attack Mode though I do have hopes for the Defense Mode (I'm hoping for another Alter Chronos situation). Only time will tell though.
I am also hoping for another Alter Chronos situation. If that was the case this might be my go to bey. Can't wait!
So defense mode has potential to be a left spin alter Chronos? Interesting. Now for attack mode. The focused weight could make it hit harder and on the right driver the OWD could make it good for a left spin tornado staller or stationary attack.
Can you tell me the benefits of the Hell Salamander in the Energy layer.
All that's left is I wanna know how tight is the clicks(teeth)

If it's strong, this has the potential to be my main bey

The teeth are strong from what I heard in the video from CoroCoro

Actually, I'm in favor for the opposite. Now that we have a better look at the layer, the attack mode reminds me of a left spinning N. And I think we all know how OP(pun intended) N was. So yeah. It'll probably be the same...

Hell Salamander is a Balance Type Energy Layer with ten blades. The top of the Layer features a dragon's head meant to representing the anime's rendition of this Layer's Beast, a dragon, and the Layer's Japanese namesake; the mythical Salamander which feeds on and lives in fire. As part of the Super-Z Layer System, Hell Salamander features metal in its design; in this case, five of the ten blades are lined with metal. The inclusion of metal makes Hell Salamander heavier than most God/Switch-Strike Layers.

Hell Salamander also features gimmicks; the Layer is Left Spin and the blades can move to create two modes, "Defense Mode" and "Attack Mode".

In Defense Mode, the metal and plastic blades are kept apart to create ten blades, akin to Wyvern, which reduces the gap in between the blades and creates a rounder, lower recoil design. This, combined with the Left Spin nature of Hell Salamander, reduces recoil against right spin opponents due to the Layers acting akin to gears which heavily reduces the rate of Bursts. Furthermore, the clockwise direction of the blades also reduce recoil, even against other Left Spin opponents.

In Attack Mode, the metal and plastic blades become consolidated into five blades which increases the gap in between the blades and creates an aggressive, recoil heavy design against other Left-Spin opponents. However, due to Hell Salamander's Left Spin nature, recoil potential is significantly reduced against right spin opponents.

Finally, the placement of the metal grants higher inertia that increases both Knock-Out and Burst Attack in Attack Mode, increases the Layer's Burst resistance in both modes as the high inertia resists teeth skipping, a property that heavily compensates for the medium length teeth of the Japanese release and increases Stamina in both modes, giving Hell Salamander equal or greater Stamina than Crash Ragnaruk.

==Use in Defense/Stamina Combinations==
Hell Salamander can be used in the Defense/Stamina combination Hell Salamander (Defense Mode) 0/2/4/5/7 Cross/Glaive/Bump Atomic/Orbit/Yard. The heavy weight and low recoil shape of Hell Salamander gives this combination high Stamina, Knock-Out and Burst resistance. The weight of 0/2/4/5/7 bolsters Knock-Out resistance and Stamina while Atomic/Orbit/Yard can further bolster Stamina and Knock-Out resistance while Atomic/Yard specifically can add Life-After-Death along with Cross/Glaive.

==Use in Attack Combinations==
Hell Salamander can be used in the Attack combination Hell Salamander (Attack Mode) 0/2/4/5/7 Bump/Meteor Xtreme/Jolt. The heavy weight of 0/2/4/5/7 Bump/Meteor and the high speed of Xtreme/Jolt bolsters Hell Salamander's Burst Attack potential while the Layer's own weight can compensate for the increased Burst risk. Furthermore, Xtreme/Jolt's high friction resists banking pattern loss from Hell Salamander's unbalanced nature. However, this combination does not perform well against Right Spin opponents.

==Use in Attack/Stamina Combinations==
Hell Salamander can be used in the Attack combination Hell Salamander 0/2/4/5/7 Cross/Glaive Accel/Zephyr/Trans/Destroy. The high Stamina of the Layer, 0/2/4/5/7 Disc and Accel/Zephyr/Trans Tip and the Life-After-Death of Destroy and the Cross/Glaive Frame increases the time the combination can stall on the Tornado Ridge. When set to Defense Mode, Burst risk is mitigated against other Left-Spin Attack Types and when set to Attack Mode, the recoil of the Layer, weight of the Disc and movement of the Tip can Burst Left-Spin Stamina and Defense Types.

==Overall==

Hell Salamander features heavy weight, strong Burst resistance and both low recoil and high recoil against Left-Spin opponents. Furthermore, Hell Salamander boasts some of the highest Stamina in the game at the time of writing.

As such, Hell Salamander is a must have for competitive bladers.

The only thing this Layer isn't good at is Attack in opposite spin battles
Add revolve to stamina/defense combo? Also add iron to balance combo?
Does this mean crash ragnarock is outclassed?

cR is right spin, hS is left spin. so i would think no.
Dangit i just wrote a draft for that part.
