Forge Disc - Jerk
Main article: Forge Disc - Jerk
Jerkis a round, thick and symmetrical Forge Disc that features a round perimeter made of soft plastic that's attached to the Forge Disc via screws, akin to Magnum and Polish. The soft plastic perimeter features two shield-like bumpers that are placed behind the Forge Disc's prongs. Unlike most Forge Discs, Jerk features a "Bound Defense" gimmick; in this case, the bumpers are designed to push inwards.
Upon impact, during Disc-to-Layer contact, the bumpers will theoretically bend inwards to absorb the shock of the impact and reduce recoil. In practice, this gimmick is rather dysfunctional. First, due to how rare Disc-to-Layer contact occurs, Jerk will rarely make contact with the opponent. Second, Jerk is rather hollow, creating poor Stamina despite the Forge Disc being round in shape. Lastly, the soft plastic bumpers hardly have any flexibility. This, combined with the Forge Disc's short distance between the stadium floor makes Jerk unsuitable for Defense and Stamina Combinations.
Performance Tip - Press
Main article: Performance Tip - Press
Press features a ball-shaped tip, much like Defense, but differs by having four significantly wider tabs around its tip compared to Defense's. In theory, these tabs will force the Beyblade back into an upright position after being knocked off balance and act as brakes to prevent Knock-Outs by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. While such an effect does occur, the wider tabs create greater Stamina drain than Defense's with little to no improvement on Stability and Knock-Out Resistance. The top portion of Press also has four wall protrusions with a spike in the center on the sides of the Performance Tip, but hold no real purpose other than a slight source of Stamina loss, since they can also scrape along the stadium floor and are too low to be struck by any Burst System Beyblade.
- Quetziko is a corruption of Quetzalcoatl, which is what the bey is based on.
