Forge Disc - 10
- Main article: Forge Disc - 10
10, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features five protrusions, each molded into the shape of a "10". The protrusions extend further from the center more than other Core Discs which grants 10 high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and subsequent Stamina potential. Furthermore, the size of the protrusions makes 10 one of the heaviest Core Discs at the time of writing, heavier than 7 but less than 0, and grants an ideal weight distribution for Stamina Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential. With the use of Frames, 10 can be used to great effect in any Combination.
Disc Frame - Expand
- Main article: Disc Frame - Expand
Expand is a round, wide Disc Frame with four smooth blades, with six gaps in total. This design, like the Maximum Garuda and Air Knight Energy Layers, is intended to produce Upper Force. In theory this Upper Force will help "lift" the Beyblade, lowering friction between the Performance Tip and the stadium floor to improve Stamina. In practice however, the blades instead create air resistance when spinning and slow the Beyblade down. The round design of Expand creates high Stamina and Life-After-Death (LAD), as its wide shape prevents the Energy Layer from touching the stadium floor when the Beyblade is tilting. Its LAD capabilities are comparable to those of other popular Disc Frames such as Cross, Glaive and Proof.
Performance Tip - Iron
- Main article: Performance Tip - Iron
Due to the surface area, Iron will create a moderately aggressive, and if launched with a Banking Shoot, easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Iron is on par with Accel and Zephyr, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. What sets Iron apart from Accel is the low friction of metal which gives Iron greater Stamina than even Zephyr, making it an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations. Furthermore, the metal construction also ensures that Iron will not wear out like other Tips such as Xtreme nor be damaged like Zephyr.
However, Iron's low friction is also a weakness as Attack Combinations using Iron can lose their Banking Pattern incredibly easily, especially if the Combinations are unbalanced. Furthermore, the low friction means that Iron is liable to Self-Knock-Outs. Finally, Iron's spring lock mechanism is somewhat weaker than most making it critical to pair it with a Layer with strong teeth such as Twin Nemesis.
