Forge Disc - 11
Main article: Forge Disc - 11
11, unlike most other odd numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Frame. Each side features one large protrusion to create the visage of an "11" with one protrusion featuring a large "1" shaped indent to create an unbalanced design, however the shallow depth of the indent creates no noticeable effect. Compared to other Core Discs, 11 is one of the lightest, even lighter than most non-Core Discs. This light weight severely hinders 11's Attack, Defense and Stamina potential and while the light weight would create high Burst Resistance, the heavy weight of the SwitchStrike/God Layer System and the Cho-Z Layer System makes the use of lightweight Discs for Burst Resistance obsolete.
Performance Tip - Volcanic'
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.
Unlike its predecessor, Volcanic' features a much thicker spring in its locking mechanism, increasing Volcanic''s Burst Resistance.
