Planet (プラネット, Puranetto) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the God Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-90 3on3 Battle Booster Set on August 11th, 2017.
Planet features a ball shaped tip made of metal, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Metal Ball Performance Tip, which rotates freely, akin to Orbit, and with two upward angled tracks which also contain metal balls, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's GB145 Track.
Like its predecessor Weight, the metal tip is meant to decrease friction with the stadium floor and provide Stability and Knock-Out Resistance by lowering the center of balance with its weight while the free spinning nature of the ball is meant to further improve Stamina. The two metal balls in the tracks are meant to move outwards due to Centrifugal Force and increase Stamina and Stability with the greater Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) when spin velocity is high. When spin velocity is low, the angled tracks bring the balls closer to the center to increase Centralized Weight Distribution (CWD) and spin speed.
In practice however, the use of circular tracks instead of straight tracks means that the metal balls will shift to one side and throw the Beyblade off balance which drains Stamina. Furthermore, the free spinning nature of the primary ball does little to improve upon what Weight can accomplish. Finally, the shallow angle of the tracks and the short distance traveled means that there is no discernible change in weight distribution.
While Planet's sheer weight can improve Knock-Out Resistance, it's mitigated by the low friction of metal and rarity of Knock-Outs in the Burst metagame.
Despite being an upgrade to Weight, Planet is outclassed by its predecessor due to its unbalanced nature.
As such, Planet is recommended for collection purposes only.
