Forge Disc - 12
- Main article: Forge Disc - 12
12, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Frame. Each side features three protrusions with the center protrusion in each set featuring molding in the shape of a "12" and four holes in the center, akin to 6. While the aggressive design of the Disc may imply high Burst potential from Disc-to-Layer contact, due to the fact that most Burst Performance Tips are of the same height, such contact is rare. Furthermore, 12's design is so aggressive that there have been numerous cases of the Disc severely damaging Layers that collide with it. Finally, 12 is the lightest Disc at the time of writing, lighter than even Armed which severely hinders Attack, Defense and Stamina potential. While the light weight would create high Burst Resistance, the heavy weight of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System and the Cho-Z Layer System makes the use of lightweight Discs for Burst Resistance obsolete.
Performance Tip - Operate'
- Main article: Performance Tip - Operate'
Operate' features an adjustable wide ball tip with two settings, Defense and Attack, which are switched by sliding the bottom portion of the tip, akin to a mix of the M145 Spin Track of Metal Fight Beyblade and Massive.
The Attack Setting has the ball tip off-center with the rest of the Beyblade, meant to create erratic and aggressive movements and even make the Beyblade hop, akin to Quake. The hopping gimmick is meant to create Layer-to-Disc contact and Burst the opponent, but while the effect is more prominent than in Quake, it is still inconsistent. Furthermore, the offset tip means that Operate''s Attack Setting is incapable of maintaining a Banking Pattern and will instead move near the Tornado Ridge or stay in the center with very poor Stamina.
The Defense Setting has the ball tip center with the rest of the Beyblade, meant to create a steady spin in the center of the stadium. In theory, the wide ball tip would increase a Beyblade's Defense by having greater surface area and friction, however in practice, Operate''s Defense Setting lags behind Defense and even Massive in almost every aspect. On prior ball Performance Tips such as Defense, tabs surrounded the ball to act as brakes by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. Due to the lack of tabs, the Defense Setting's Knock-Out Resistance lags behind Massive which also had poor Knock-Out Resistance. This issue is exacerbated by the surface area of the the Defense Setting as it will create a semi-aggressive movement pattern early in battle, bringing a Beyblade closer to the Tornado Ridge. Due to the aforementioned poor Knock-Out Resistance, this will make a Beyblade using Operate''s Defense Setting highly susceptible to Knock-Outs.
Like other Dash Performance Tips, Operate' features a stronger spring lock, increasing the Performance Tip's Burst Resistance.
