Earth Aquila 2 Yielding (アースアクイラ. ツー . イールディング, Āsuakuira Tsū Īrudingu)) is a Balance-Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System. It was released in Japan on Late December for 8,100 ¥.
Energy Layer: Earth Aquila
Forge Disc: 2
Main article: Forge Disc - 2
2, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion with "2" shaped molding on either side of the protrusion. 2 has a standard weight distribution and an average weight among Core Discs, these features allow it to act as a "Jack-of-All-Trades", capable of performing well in any type of Combination. While other Core Discs such as 4 and 7 can work better for Attack, Defense and Stamina, 2 works as an excellent alternative if those Core Discs are unavailable.
Performance Tip: Yielding
Main article: Performance Tip - Yielding
Yielding features a cone shaped tip made of PolyOxyMethylene (POM) thermoplastic rather than traditional plastic, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Polish Defense. Yielding's gimmick is that the POM plastic has less friction against the stadium floor than traditional plastic, increasing a Combination's Stamina. Embossed into the top of the Performance Tip is a stylized 'Y' for easy differentiation.
Due to the lowered friction, Yielding yields high amounts of Stamina and procession time, however this low friction also brings lowered KO resistance and stability. The stability issue is further exacerbated by the angle of the cone; unlike Metal Fight Beyblade's Defense Tip, the angle of Yielding is more acute, akin to Big Wide Defense, causing an increase in the risk of floor scrapes. It is possible to improve the stability somewhat by wearing down the tip, however the low friction means that this takes time.
The advantage Yielding has over other Performance Tips such as Revolve and Defense is greater Burst resistance as the low friction means that there is less force to be taken by the teeth or slopes of a Layer.
