Forge Disc: Hurricane
- Main article: Forge Disc - Hurricane (Takara Tomy)
Hurricane features a free-spinning ring that rotates around the disc. It is heavier than all of the Core Discs and most of the non-Core Discs, making it one of the heaviest non-Core Discs in the game. In theory, the free-spinning ring will block attacks by moving with the opponent's Layer and reduce recoil. In practice, this is not very effective, as the Layer of the opposing Beyblade rarely makes contact with the Forge Disc. However, Hurricane's free-spinning ring has an advantage: the free-spinning ring will minimize Stamina loss if a Hurricane combination is knocked over and scrapes the stadium. The free-spinning ring also supplements the Life After Death in Right-Spin combinations, since the ring creates slight Upper Force. Likewise, the ring will create Down Force in Left-Spin combinations, making a Left-Spin Hurricane combination more controllable. This makes Hurricane very versatile in any combination.
Performance Tip: Orbit
- Main article: Performance Tip - Orbit
Orbit features a free rotating plastic ball tip with a diameter equal to Massive, surrounded by a three tabbed ring. In theory, the wider tip would increase a Beyblade's Knock-Out Defense by having greater surface area and friction, however, in practice the free rotating nature of the ball reduces most of the Knock-Out Resistance given by the surface area of the ball. Like other ball based Defense Performance Tips, the tabs around Orbit are meant to act as brakes against Knock-Outs at the cost of Stamina by striking against the stadium floor, however, the large diameter makes such contact rare. If hard launched, Orbit creates an aggressive movement pattern early in the battle, bringing the Beyblade to the Tornado Ridge.
While these features may imply that Orbit-based Combinations would be easy to Knock-Out, in reality the heavy weight of SwitchStrike/God Layers and Core Discs compensate for the rotating ball. Furthermore, the free rotating tip increases the Burst Resistance of an Orbit-based Combination and Orbit consistently has a stronger spring lock than Atomic which further improves Burst Resistance.
In addition to the Defense properties, Orbit also features high Stamina as the free rotating nature reduces friction with the stadium floor, the wide ball tip keeps a Combination stable and thus prevents scraping.
