- This article is about the Hasbro version. For the Takara Tomy version, see Forge Disc - Wheel (Takara Tomy).
Wheel is a Forge Disc released by Hasbro as part of the Burst System as well as the SpeedStorm System. It debuted in western countries with the release of the SpeedStorm Starter Pack Glide Roktavor R6 Wheel Revolving-SPM.
Hasbro's Wheel is a symmetrical, circular Forge Disc based on Takara Tomy's Wheel, and as such retains the same high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and Life-After-Death (LAD) that is useful for any kind of Combination. However, there are notable differences: Hasbro's Wheel is smaller in size and about 5 grams lighter than Takara Tomy's Wheel, and also has regular, full tabs. As such its weight is comparable to the likes of 0 and 00; however the aforementioned Core Discs can facilitate Disc Frames, which can increase their weight further, while Wheel cannot. It has four gaps intended to increase Outward Weight Distribution and its Stamina potential, as well as a circular perimeter that increases Life-After-Death. Due to its round shape and weight, it is comparable in performance to Discs such as Outer. As Hasbro's Wheel is purely a weaker version of its Takara Tomy counterpart, there is no reason to use Hasbro's Wheel over the latter. However, in the WBO's Burst Limited Format, where the Takara Tomy version is banned, Hasbro's Wheel finds use due to its high Outward Weight Distribution and weight.
While Hasbro's Wheel preserves the same qualities and versatility as the original Takara Tomy version, its smaller size and lighter weight make it inferior to Takara Tomy's Wheel. However, Hasbro's Wheel is a welcome addition if the Blader plans to compete in the Burst Limited Format, where the Takara Tomy version is banned.
As such, Hasbro's Wheel is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to a blader's collection.
