Drake (ドレイク, Doreiku) is a Forge Disc released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-144 Booster Zwei Longinus Drake Spiral' Metsu on June 22nd, 2019.

Description

An Attack Type Disc that gives a powerful blow to the Beyblade's opponent with a dragon-shaped blade, in which the center of gravity is biased on each side.
— Official Description

Drake consists of two parts, a plastic part riveted to a metal part. This produces a four-sided shape, with two sides that are engraved with dragon heads, being bigger than the others. The gimmick of this Disc is to synergize with Zwei, as Drake's shape is meant to mimic it. However, this does not provide much benefit to combinations using the Zwei Layer Base, as any such combo would rather use the heavier Sting or Blitz. Furthermore, Drake has a scraping risk, as the plastic on it hangs downwards. It also does not provide an ideal weight distribution for any other Layer to use it effectively.

Overall

Drake, while meant to synergize with Zwei in theory, is not the preferred Disc for it, and it is a rather poor choice for other Layers compared to Sting, Blitz, or even Convert, making it outclassed by other Discs from the same time period. Furthermore, the weight and OWD of current Discs far outclass Drake.

Therefore, Drake is recommended for collection purposes only.
