Description of Gear Needle

First released in the BX-27 Random Booster Sphynx Cowl Select as part of the Xtreme Gear Sports Basic Line system on February 22nd, 2024, Gear Needle (or GN) is a defense type Bit. It is the “Gear” variant of Needle. A “Gear” variant means that the Bit features extended Gears, making it easier for the combination to ride the X-Line.

Gear Needle is a pointy Bit, featuring a conical shape and a sharp tip, albeit not as sharp as its predecessors Needle and High Needle. The shape of the tip results in a docile, controllable stationary behavior. When launched hard, a GN combination will move in small circles inside the center area of the stadium before steadying itself.

It is also worth noting that GN has a lower height than Needle and High Needle, making the combination 0,5mm to 1,5mm lower.

In terms of defense potential, the low friction of the tip creates poor knock-out resistance. Even though GN tip is not as sharp as its predecessors, a GN combination is still fairly easy to destabilize and knock-out.

Additionally, the stationary behavior of this Bit can be very safe, remaining steady in the center of the stadium, thus evading attacks from the opponent. On the other hand, the stationary behavior can also make the combination an easy target for Xtreme Dash attacks.

It i also worth noting that when repelled against the X-Line, a GN combination will ride it easily due to the extended gears, creating an Xtreme-Dash and losing stamina in the process. However, the extended Gears also create a circular “guard” above the tip, which creates decent LAD.

“GN” can be used with any type of Blades, including attack oriented Blades such as Dran Sword, Shark Edge, or Dran Dagger etc.

Final Thoughts

Intended to be a defense type Bit because of its controllable behavior, Gear Needle features decent stamina potential. However, its innate weaknesses make it a riskier option than Ball. This Bit is the lowest variant of Needle, and the extended gears create decent LAD potential.

Therefore, Gear Needle is a strong addition in any Beyblade X collection.
