Cronos’ Scythe


Cronos’ Scythe: A Powerful Upgrade for your Vertical Spinner.

In Greek Mythology, Cronus was a dark revolutionary god who overthrew his father and led a new generation of Titans to power. See here. Often depicted with a scythe or sickle, Cronus wielded this weapon to rise to power and to create a new age, as well as cause some unfortunate damage to his father. He was the youngest and leader of the powerful Titans, and ushered in the Golden Age, until he was himself overthrown by his son Zeus. Give your beetle the power of a Titan! Go after your opponents most important parts! Give it a Cronos’ Scythe!

The iconic Titanic Scythe wielded for bloody deeds was the inspiration for “Cronus’ Scythe” – an incredible destructive addition to your eggbeater. Now you can easily upgrade your robot’s performance with Cronos’ Scythe and unleash Titanic power and durability!

Cronos’ Scythe is a battle-tested weapon that has conquered robotics competitions nationwide, delivering relentless force and unwavering resilience. Our version is fully assembled and has upgraded steel inserts for longevity and durability.
