Description of 3-80 Ratchet
First released in the BX-04 Knight Shield 3-80N Starter as part of the Xtreme Gear Sports system, 3-80 (or Three Eighty) is a Ratchet from the Beyblade X generation.
The number “3” refers to the number of blades along the Ratchet’s perimeter, so 3-80 has three blades. In Beyblade X, Ratchets blades are acting as weak points for burst attacks, therefore players have to make sure the blades of the ratchet are not too exposed.
When assembling this Ratchet to three-sided Blades such as Dran Sword, it is worth noting that the three blades on 3-80 perimeter line up differently depending on how the Ratchet is positioned.
Furthermore, 3-80 protrusions can be aligned with Dran Sword’s contact points, which may increase the combination attack potential. Therefore, it is recommended to always check the alignement of the blades and the contact points when assembling the combination.
Additionally, while 3-80 features less blades than 4-80, their contact surface is wider : 5mm for 4-80 blades against 7mm for 3-80 blades.
The number “80” refers to the Ratchet height, which in this case is 8 mm. 3-80 features a stronger lock than 3-60, but its height makes it easier to strike from below. In spite of their stronger lock, “80” Ratchets tend to burst more often than “60” variants. Therefore, “80” Ratchets are usually used with attack/balance type Bits, featuring a wider shaft and increased burst-resistance.
