Forge Disc - Yell
Main article: Forge Disc - Yell
Yell features a ring with a wide diameter, greater than Spread and equal to Polish, and a thick metal star in the center to create a centralized weight, akin to Central. The centralized weight is meant to increase spin velocity which has numerous effects on Performance:
If used on Attack Combinations, the higher spin velocity will increase the force of impact. If used on Defense Combinations, the centralized weight will increase Knock-Out Resistance.
Combined with the wide, circular perimeter and the raised position of the ring, Yell will also grant high Life-After-Death and increase Precession time. However, the centralized weight creates numerous drawbacks as well:
The centralized weight will reduce movement speed in Attack Combinations making it ill-suited for Mobile Combinations and the lack of Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) gives Defense and Stamina Combinations poor spin retention.
Performance Tip - Orbit
Main article: Performance Tip - Orbit
Orbit features a free rotating plastic ball tip with a diameter equal to Massive, surrounded by a three tabbed ring. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's Knock-Out Defense by having greater surface area and friction, however, in practice the free rotating nature of the ball reduces most of the Knock-Out Resistance given by the surface area of the ball. Like other ball based Defense Performance Tips, the tabs around Orbit are meant to act as brakes against Knock-Outs at the cost of Stamina by striking against the stadium floor, however, the large diameter makes such contact rare. If hard launched, Orbit creates an aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing the Beyblade to the Tornado Ridge.
While these features may imply that Orbit-based Combinations would be easy to Knock-Out, in reality the heavy weight of SwitchStrike/God Layers and Core Discs compensate for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free rotating tip increases the Burst Resistance of an Orbit-based Combination and Orbit consistently has a stronger spring lock than Atomic which further improves Burst Resistance.
In addition to the Defense properties, Orbit also features high Stamina as the free rotating nature reduces friction with the stadium floor, the wide ball tip keeps a Combination stable and thus prevents scraping.
