Forge Disc - Central
Main article: Forge Disc - Central
Central features a thickened central ring and a thinned perimeter meant to create Centralized Weight Distribution (OWD). 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.
While Central has an indent on once side to prevent this Disc from being perfectly balanced, it is not the main downfall of this Disc. What prevents this Disc from being competitive is the light weight which makes any effect from the Centralized Weight Distribution (CWD) negligible at best as there is too little mass for effective Attack potential and too little mass for effective Knock-Out Resistance.
Performance Tip - Press
Main article: Performance Tip - Press
Press features a ball-shaped tip, much like Defense, but differs by having four significantly wider tabs around its tip compared to Defense's. In theory, these tabs will force the Beyblade back into an upright position after being knocked off balance and act as brakes to prevent Knock-Outs by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. While such an effect does occur, the wider tabs create greater Stamina drain than Defense's with little to no improvement on Stability and Knock-Out Resistance. The top portion of Press also has four wall protrusions with a spike in the center on the sides of the Performance Tip, but hold no real purpose other than a slight source of Stamina loss, since they can also scrape along the stadium floor and are too low to be struck by any Burst System Beyblade.
