- This article is about Merge'. For its normal counterpart, see Performance Tip - Merge.
Merge' (マージダッシュ, Māji Dasshu) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-130 Random Booster Vol. 13 Air Knight.12E.Et on December 27th, 2018.
Merge', like its predecessor Merge, features a six pointed flat rubber tip, akin to the Left Rubber Flat Performance Tip of Metal Fight Beyblade, with a sharp plastic tip in the center, akin to the Coated Sharp Performance Tip of Metal Fight Beyblade, that sits at the standard height. Like its predecessors Unite and Merge, when launched straight down into the stadium, the sharp tip in the center will keep the Beyblade stable and still in the center, preventing Stamina loss.
When a mint condition Merge' is either knocked off balance by an opponent or launched at an angle, the rubber will make contact with the stadium, creating an aggressive movement pattern with speeds exceeding Xtreme due to the increased surface area created by the six points. However this aggressive movement is somewhat unreliable as the sharp center can slow it down in the center of the stadium or stop the movement entirely and the greater surface area cripples Stamina.
When worn however, instead of creating aggressive movement when struck, the rubber will instead act as brakes against a Knock-Out, at the cost of Stamina, before going back to stable from the sharp center.
Unlike its predecessor, Merge' features a much thicker spring in its locking mechanism, increasing Merge''s Burst Resistance.
Despite the stronger spring lock, Merge' is generally outclassed for competitive use due to its inconsistent Attack potential and poor Stamina.
However, its versatility makes Merge' a welcome addition to a blader's collection.
