Polish (ポリッシュ, Porisshu) is a Forge Disc released by Takara Tomy and Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-65 Beyblade Super Custom Set Speed Ver. on November 12th, 2016. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Starter Pack Phantazus P2 Polish Edge.
Polish, like Magnum and Jerk, is a Forge Disc made up of metal core and plastic perimeter with the letter, in this case "P", embossed onto the plastic on either side with the plastic making up the gimmick of the Disc.
For Polish's gimmick, the plastic creates a "skirt" with a perfectly smooth and circular perimeter meant to, in theory, create high Life-After-Death so that a Stamina Combination can Out-Spin its opponent. In practice, the gimmick works as intended, however, a single factor restricts Polish's performance in Stamina Combinations; the plastic construction.
Due to having a metal core and plastic perimeter, Polish has a Centralized Weight Distribution (CWD) rather than an Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) which creates poor spin retention and spin times making Polish Combinations liable to being Out-Spun. Furthermore, the same construction makes Polish very lightweight and makes Combinations highly vulnerable to Knock-Outs.
However, the same lightweight allows Polish to be used to great effect in Spin-Equalization Combinations as the low weight creates low inertia and makes it easier for a Polish Combination to Spin-Equalize and the high Life-After-Death allows Spin-Equalization Combinations to Out-Spin their opponents by a few more rotations.
Use in Spin-Equalization Combinations
Polish can be put to use in the Spin-Equalization Combination Drain Fafnir/Spriggan Requiem Polish Atomic/Hold/Destroy. The low weight of Polish works with the free-spinning and/or low friction nature of Atomic/Hold/Destroy and the rubber of Drain Fafnir/Spriggan Requiem to allow for high Spin-Equalization potential. The Life-After-Death of Polish is enhanced by the Life-After-Death of the free-spinning components of Atomic/Hold/Destroy allowing the Combination to Out-Spin its opponent. However, even against Opposite-Spin opponents, Polish makes these Combinations liable to Knock-Outs against Attack Combinations.
Polish is one of the better Discs for Spin-Equalization Combinations due to its light weight and high Life-After-Death. However, its light weight makes Combinations liable to Knock-Outs and Core Disc and Disc Frame Combinations such as 7Cross are able to perform comparably without the Knock-Out risk.
As such, Polish is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to a blader's collection.
