Forge Disc - 10
Main article: Forge Disc - 10
10, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features five protrusions, each molded into the shape of a "10". The protrusions extend further from the center more than other Core Discs which grants 10 high Outward Weight Distribution and subsequent Stamina potential. Furthermore, the size of the protrusions makes 10 one of the heaviest Core Discs at the time of writing, heavier than 7 but less than 0, and grants an ideal weight distribution for Stamina Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential. With the use of Frames, 10 can be used to great effect in any Combination.
Performance Tip - Friction-S
Main article: Performance Tip - Friction-S
Friction-S, as its name implies, is a SlingShock Performance Tip based off of Takara Tomy's Friction. Unlike the original Friction, Friction-S' ball tip is not made of a PolyOxyMethylene (POM) thermoplastic construction, and also does not feature the rubber ring that the original Friction has. As a part of the SlingShock System, Friction-S can be manually altered to switch between "Battle Ring Mode" and "SlingShock Mode"; in this case, by pushing one tab to the other side and vice-versa.
- This is the first Beyblade to have the same parts as its predecessor.
- It is also the first anime-related Beyblade to have parts different from its Takara Tomy counterpart. This was likely done to have it be more accurate to its appearance in the anime.
