8' (エイトダッシュ, Eito Dasshu) is a Forge Disc released by Takara Tomy and Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System and SlingShock System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-122 Starter Geist Fafnir 8' Absorb on September 22nd, 2018. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Fafnir F4 & Rudr R4 Dual Pack.

Description

8', like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. 8' is essentially a wider and lighter version of 8, with higher Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) due to its wider shape. As a result, 8' has higher Stamina Potential than its predecessor. Like 8, 8' features four protrusions on each side. Each of the protrusions features gaps, akin to Knuckle, which takes weight away from the center and creates high Outward Weight Distribution. However, like other heavy Forge Discs with high Outward Weight Distribution, the use of 8' decreases Burst Resistance as a trade off.

Overall

8' is too light to be competitive in the current metagame, as it has subsequently been outclassed by later releases in the Superking Layer System and onward, such as Wheel and Over.

As such, 8' is recommended for collection purposes only.

8' is too light and is consequently outclassed by other Core Discs such as 5, 7, and 00.

As such, 8' is recommended for collection purposes only.

8' is not legal in the WBO's Burst Classic Format.

As such, 8' is recommended for collection purposes only.
