Volcanic (ボルカニック, Borukanikku) 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-104 Starter Winning Valkyrie 12 Volcanic on March 17th, 2018.
Volcanic features a tilting, free rotating flat tip with a textured design, akin to a smaller Hold.
Like Hold, the wide surface area of the plate makes Volcanic one of the more aggressive and faster tips in the game. While this level of speed implies that a Beyblade using this Tip would be in danger of Self-Knock-Outs, the friction given by the textured ring allows Volcanic to stay on the Tornado Ridge, the free-spinning nature and smaller diameter of the tip mitigates its speed to more controllable levels and the tilting aspect of the tip provides Stability to prevent the Beyblade from tipping over and allows more of the textured ring to contact the stadium and the Tornado Ridge. While the smaller diameter makes it easier to maintain a banking pattern with Volcanic than with Hold, the pattern still breaks very quickly.
Due to Volcanic's design, the speed of the Performance Tip can vary as some Volcanic tips spin more freely than others, the more the tip spins freely, the more Stamina it has and the easier it is to control, but at the cost of speed.
Volcanic is slightly taller than most other tips. This height difference would, in theory, increase the rate of Disc-to-Layer contact and Burst the opponent. However, due to the height of most Layers and the minimal difference in height, such contact is rare.
Due to the identical mechanism and similar shape, Volcanic would also perform well in Spin-Equalization Combinations as the free-spinning nature and tilting plate of Volcanic would allow for excellent Spin-Equalization potential while also granting the Precession and Life-After-Death needed to win such matches. However, the smaller diameter mitigates Volcanic's Life-After-Death potential and the greater height prevents the rubber of Drain Fafnir or Spriggan Requiem to make contact with the opponent.
While Volcanic has greater Stamina and greater control than its predecessor Hold, it also lags behind its predecessor in Attack, Spin-Equalization and Life-After-Death potential. Furthermore, both Volcanic and Hold are heavily outclassed by Destroy.
As such, Volcanic is recommended for collection purposes only.
