Forge Disc - Magnum
Main article: Forge Disc - Magnum
Magnum features a circular metal disc with a plastic covering around the sides and some of the top. This leaves the metal directly on the bottom and the prongs that fit into the energy layer still exposed. The covering features three triangular protrusions and one round protrusion. Unlike other Forge Discs, the letter M is not located on the prongs as they are located on the plastic instead. Magnum is meant to distribute weight on three corners like Triple, however, the lightweight outer plastic construction limits the effects of such a weight distribution.
Performance Tip - Liner
Main article: Performance Tip - Liner
Liner is a Performance Tip that features a free-spinning wheel that's positioned vertically. As its name suggests, Liner features a "Stabilization" gimmick that is meant to realign the Beyblade; in this case, through the use of its free-spinning wheel.
At first, depending on the parts used, Liner is mostly stationary and easily takes refuge in the center of the stadium. However, once struck by the opponent, Liner's free-spinning wheel will move, creating a somewhat erratic movement pattern, and thus, theoretically, will retake refuge in the center of the stadium. In practice, the Beyblade is easily capable of heading back into the center when struck, and thus Liner's "Stabilization" gimmick works as intended.
At the same time, this gimmick also allows the Beyblade to counterattack the opponent, potentially being able to Knock-Out or Burst them. Sometimes, this even results in continuous head-on collisions. However, while this may imply Attack potential, Liner can become unbalanced, which acts as a "double-edged sword"; as the unbalanced nature, while it is beneficial in Attack Combinations, can also increase the risk of Bursts and creates poor late-game Stamina. This also makes Liner ill-suited for Spin-Equalization Combinations, as the late-game unstable spin of the tip's wheel will prevent the Combination's Layer's rubber from making direct contact with the opponent.
As such, Liner is best suited for Knock-Out Defense Combinations; as the ability to quickly get from the Tornado Ridge to the center of the stadium allows it to avoid potential Knock-Outs than most other Performance Tips, such as Atomic.
