Despite the "Lightning-X" prefix and "I4" suffix, Hasbro's Lightning-X Istros I4 is simply a recolored Istros I2. As such, one should refer to the Istros I2 page for more information.
Forge Disc - 4
Main article: Forge Disc - 4
4, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features two protrusions, one molded into the shape of a "4" and the other molded into the shape of the Roman Numeral "IV". The protrusions extend further from the center more than other Core Discs which grants 4 high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) and subsequent Stamina potential. As a Core Disc, 4 is comparatively heavier than regular Forge Discs such as Heavy and Gravity which grants higher Knock-Out Resistance and the ability to facilitate Disc Frames can add characteristics such as Life-After-Death with Cross or Glaive. While 7 has greater Stamina, 4's Stamina is still comparable.
Performance Tip - Accel-S
Main article: Performance Tip - Accel-S
Accel-S, as its name implies, is a SlingShock Performance Tip based off of Accel. However, unlike the original Accel, Accel-S is slightly taller and it features two gaps on either side of its cylinder base, which is meant for the activation of its “SlingShock Mode”. As a part of the SlingShock System, Accel-S can be manually altered to switch between “Battle Ring Mode” and “SlingShock Mode”; in this case, by twisting the tip clockwise, pulling it downwards, and twisting the tip clockwise again, and vice-versa.
