Forge Disc - Central
Main article: Forge Disc - Central
Central features a thickened central ring and a thinned perimeter meant to create Centralized Weight Distribution (OWD). The centralized weight is meant to increase spin velocity which has numerous effects on performance:
If used on Attack Combinations, the higher spin velocity will increase the force of impact. If used on Defense Combinations, the centralized weight will increase Knock-Out Resistance.
While Central has an indent on once side to prevent this Disc from being perfectly balanced, it is not the main downfall of this Disc. What prevents this Disc from being competitive is the light weight which makes any effect from the Centralized Weight Distribution (CWD) negligible at best as there is too little mass for effective Attack potential and too little mass for effective Knock-Out Resistance.
Performance Tip - Defense
Main article: Performance Tip - Defense (Burst)
Defense features a Ball tip and sits at a standard track height. A protective disk sits halfway down the Performance Tip, and the Ball tip has four support ridges. The center of the Performance Tip also contains a shield decal to symbolize itself.
When simply spinning by itself, Defense behaves as a normal Ball tip. When struck however, the tabs will force the Beyblade back into an upright position after being knocked off balance and act as brakes to prevent Knock-Outs by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. While the ring may imply Defense potential akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's D125 track, it is positioned too low for any Burst System Beyblade to make contact with. However, the smooth perimeter of the ring does grant Life-After-Death potential.
