Description of Sphynx Cowl 4-80HT

Sphynx Cowl 4-80HT is a right-spin balance type combination, released with the BX-27 Random Booster Sphynx Cowl Select as part of the Xtreme Gear Sports Basic Line system on February 22nd, 2024.

This Beyblade features Sphynx Cowl, a right-spin defense type Blade introduced with this Random Booster. This stock combination comes with the 4-80 Ratchet and High Taper Bit. This combo displays Sphynx Cowl attack/counter attack potential, although it cannot be considered as very coherent.

The result is a fairly mobile combination, featuring a Blade with 9 contact points designed to be used in stamina/defense type combinations.

Blade : Sphynx Cowl

Sphynx Cowl is a right-spin Blade featuring an overall circular shape with a rugged design. This Blade has 9 main contact points along its perimeter, resulting in the rugged design of this Blade. These contact points are part of a gimmick, the “Barrage Blades”, designed to align with the 9 protrusions of the 9-80 Ratchet.

There are 5 contact points on one side of the Blade, and 4 on the other half, creating an unbalanced weight distribution. This lack of balance results in a relatively poor stamina potential, with a tendency to wobble and tilt over early in battle, especially when combined to pointy Bits such as Needle, High Needle, Spike or Gear Needle.

Ratchet : 4-80

4-80 (or Four Eighty) is a Ratchet from the Beyblade X generation. This Ratchet features four “blades” along its perimeter, and it is 8 mm tall. Its taller height makes it easier to strike from below, increasing burst risk. Therefore, it usually is a preferred option in attack type combinations.

Bit : High Taper (HT)

High Taper (or HT) is a balance type Bit. It is the “High” variant of Taper, being 1 mm taller than its predecessor.

Like Taper, “HT” features a narrow circular flat tip with a shallow indentation. The tip angles upwards from the centre, creating a second contact point. This design creates enough mobility to hit the X-Line, while retaining a decent amount of stamina compared to traditional attack type Bits.

How to Improve Sphynx Cowl 4-80HT

Players willing to keep the balance type identity of this stock combo can replace 4-80 with 9-60 or 5-60. This will lower the combination height and mitigate burst risk. Furthermore, players can replace High Taper with stable stamina/balance type Bits such as Ball, Gear Ball, Orb or Gear Point.

Additionally, Bits such as Needle, High Needle or Spike are obvious defense type alternatives, but the Blade’s lack of balance results in poor stamina potential with such options.

Final Thoughts

This stock combination features decent Xtreme Gear Sports Parts, including the High Taper Bit, which is only available in the Hells Chain Deck Set (at the time of writing).

Therefore, Sphynx Cowl 4-80HT is not a must have in a Beyblade X collection. However, it can be a decent addition for players looking for the Sphynx Cowl Blade and High Taper.
