Forge Disc - Outer

Outer features a wide, almost perfectly circular shape with large gaps separating the center from the edge, these gaps are meant to increase Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) to increase Stamina while the circular perimeter increases Life-After-Death. Outer boasts the highest Stamina and Life-After-Death in the game, outclassing 2/4/5/7 Cross/Glaive Core Disc and Disc Frame Combinations while not presenting the same Burst risk as the aforementioned Core Discs and Disc Frames or similar Forge Discs such as Ring due to its weight.

Performance Tip - Octa

Main article: Performance Tip - Octa

Octa is a driver with an octagonal metal piece and 4 holes and an octagonal shaped pattern that it expands into a dome. The metal piece will make it one of the heaviest drivers implying Knock-Out Resistance. Near Octa’s spring lock, there are bumps, which increase friction on the burst locks causing Burst Resistance. However, there are drawbacks of Octa as well:

First, the heavy weight decreases Octa’s Burst Resistance as a trade-off even with the bumps at the end of the battle where the Octa combination slows down. Second, Octa lacks behind Atomic for Life-After-Death due to the octagonal design which nullifies Life-After-Death. Finally, due to segments on Octa, the tip has poor stamina and lags behind already outclassed tips such as Survive. Despite being a rare item, Octa is useless for tournament play.
