Description of the Accel Driver
First released with the B-01 DX Starter Valkyrie Wing Accel, on July 18th, 2015 as part of the Beyblade Burst system, Accel is the first attack type Performance Tip released in the Beyblade Burst Generation.
Accel features a small, flat plastic tip of small diameter, allowing the combination to move with speed around the stadium. When launched flat, this driver is able to create a fast Tornado Stall. When launched with a banked shot, this driver is able to create a flower-pattern, making it a decent attack Performance Tip.
Plastic creates less friction with the stadium floor than rubber, making Accel less aggressive than other classic attack type drivers such as Xtreme’. Furthermore, the lack of friction means that it will be more difficult for the combination to maintain a flower-pattern movement. Additionally, the plastic tip will make the combination relatively fast but also slightly harder to control, increasing the risk of self knock-outs.
However, the plastic tip of this driver does not suffer from wear like rubber attack Performance Tips, which typically need to be replaced on a regular basis due to their performances dropping with wear. Furthermore, plastic also creates more stamina potential, making this driver a potential option to play in the DB standard stadium.
Being made of plastic, this driver cannot compete with classic rubber attack drivers such as Quick’ or Xtreme’. However, it remains a fairly reliable attack Performance Tip that does not suffer from wear, and its stamina potential can make it a relevant albeit non-competitive option in larger stadiums such as the DB standard arena.
Furthermore, this Performance Tip is outclassed by its Dash variant, Accel’.
Therefore, this driver is not a must have, but it can be a good addition in any player’s collection.
