Rock Aries ED145B is a Defense type beyblade. Rock Aries ED145B was released in Japan by Takara Tomy. Hasbro "upgraded" Clay Aries ED145B to Rock Aries ED145B for its American release.
Facebolt: AriesEditThe facebolt depicts the first astrological sign on the zodiac, Aries. It features a Ram's skull, with the word ARIES below.

hence forming a roughly triangular perimeter on the Spin Track. It was then released in a new color, a dark violet. (If you turn it 180 degrees it will appear like it will have two modes, but only placed on Fusion Wheels with 3/6 "Wings").
Fusion Wheel: RockEdit
Rock has six large protrusions with small, shallow gaps between each one. It also overhangs the Track much like the original Leone Fusion Wheel, although to a smaller extent. Rock is currently the third heaviest Hybrid Wheel System Wheel to date. However, as a Defense-Type, it is unable to match the qualities of Fusion Wheels such as Earth and Virgo, because the shape of Rock produces a significant amount of recoil upon contact with another Wheel. As a result, Rock is an outclassed Defense Wheel, but a good Attack Wheel when paired with recoil-reducing parts such as a Metal Face or the tips RF and R2F.Rock also gets loose when used too much.Attack: 1 - Defense: 4 - Stamina: 2
Spin Track: Eternal Defense 145 (ED145)Edit
- Weight: 3.6 grams
ED145 features three “wings” which rotate around the Track freely. The wings are similar to that of WD145. Because of their free-spinning nature, they can be used in Defense customisations, such as MF Libra ED145RS however, the defensive capabilities of this part are not as effective as C145, as it does not absorb hits as successfully. The wings which rotate are hindered without the mechanism of a bearing, hence creating a force
of friction between the and the body of the Track, in turn resulting in less significant damage absorption. Furthermore, it is easy for the low attacker’s Wheel to be caught between the Wheel and ED145, hence causing a lot of recoil and spin reduction to the Defense customization. The free-spinning piece may be removed and interchanged with WA130, creating ED130 and WA145, but this is illegal and not allowed in tournaments.
Performance Tip: Ball (B)Edit
This tip is shaped similar to a ball. It was first released with Clay Aries ED145B. The hemispherical shape provides a large area for it to make contact with the stadium. This tip is a decent defense tip, but it is outclassed by CS, RSF and RS.
