Description of Phoenix Wing
First released with the BX-23 Phoenix Wing 9-60GF Starter as part of the Xtreme Gear Sports system on December 10th, 2023, Phoenix Wing is a right-spin attack type Blade.
This Blade has a three-sided shape, featuring three upward slanting contact points. The center part of the Blade, the Gear Chip, features a red colored phoenix. At the time of writing (January 2024), Phoenix Wing is the heaviest Blade of the Xtreme Gear Sports system alongside Cobalt Drake.
It is worth noting that both Phoenix Wing and Cobalt Drake heavy weight is also the result of the added coat of paint. The paint on the contact points will come off over time, but the weight loss is minimal. Once worn, the Blade is approximately 0,1g lighter due to the paint coming off.
The heavy weight and agressive design of this Blade result in decent stamina potential, especially for an attack oriented Blade, and high attack potential. Moreover, it has great synergy with the 9-60 Ratchet, which can be lined up with Phoenix Wing contact points, increasing attack potential further.
The Smash Attack power of this Blade is high enough to dominate the other regular releases from the Xtreme Gear Sports system, including Hells Scythe, Dran Sword and Shark Edge. Furthermore, the three upward slanting contact points create Upper Attack potential, allowing Phoenix Wing to knock the opposing Beyblades out in the Xtreme Zone with consistency.
The inertia and attack power of this Blade make it highly versatile, meaning it can be used in mobile (Gear Flat, Flat or Low Flat), semi-mobile (Ball) and stationary combinations (Needle, High Needle, Spike, Orb). Due to how versatile this Blade is, Ball is the safest option.
Nonetheless, Taper can make Phoenix Wing effective in a wide variety of match-ups, allowing players to save Ball for another combo in their Deck. Additionally, the extra stamina provided by Taper will make the combo feel relatively safe, even against stamina/defense oriented combinations. However, Phoenix Wing 9-60T can be countered with consistency by Knight Lance 3-60B.
Overall, low recoil Blades can be slightly more challenging for this “Metal Coat” Blade, but most part of the available options lack weight to be used as effective counter options against Phoenix Wing.
This Blade can be combined with the 9-60 Ratchet, which can be lined up with Phoenix Wing contact points. Therefore, it is recommended to check the alignement of the Ratchet “blades” and the contact points when assembling the combination.
Furthermore, the Ball Bit provides enough mobility and stamina potential to make the combination top-tier, able to counter any competitive combo used in the current meta-game. Taper is a strong alternative, allowing players to save Ball for another combo in their deck.
However, as mentioned earlier, the heavy weight and overall design of the Blade allow it to be combined to any type of Bit with great success.
Phoenix Wing is an important evolution in the Xtreme Gear Sports system. Its heavy weight and overall design result in top tier performances, making most of the previous regular releases outclassed.
Collectors may want to get an additional copy of this Blade, since the paint will come off quickly.
Therefore, this Blade is a must have in any Beyblade X collection.
