Forge Disc - 2
Main article: Forge Disc - 2
2, like other even numbered Core Discs, is symmetrical and elliptical in shape in order to facilitate a Disc Frame. Each side features one protrusion with "2" shaped molding on either side of the protrusion. 2 has a standard weight distribution and an average weight among Core Discs, these features allow it to act as a "Jack-of-All-Trades", capable of performing well in any type of Combination. While other Core Discs such as 4 and 7 can work better for Attack, Defense and Stamina, 2 works as an excellent alternative if those Core Discs are unavailable.
Disc Frame - Glaive
Main article: Disc Frame - Glaive
Glaive is a mostly round Disc Frame with two sharp, wave like protrusions on either side. While too small to come into contact with the opponent's Layer in battle, the round shape of Glaive grants high Life-After-Death while the upwards direction of the protrusions ensure they do not scrape along the stadium floor. While Cross has greater Life-After-Death, Glaive is still comparable.
Performance Tip - Loop
Main article: Performance Tip - Loop
Loop features a ball shaped tip that sits at a standard height with four tabs, akin to Defense, but differs by having two free rotating rollers draping down on either side of the Tip in place of the defensive ring.
The diameter and placement of the four tabs are identical to Defense, thus the tabs act as brakes against Knock-Outs by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina and the diameter of the ball prevents aggressive movement meaning that Loop will mostly stay in the center of the stadium during battle.
In theory the rollers would bring a Beyblade using Loop back upright if knocked off balance with little Stamina loss due to the free rotating nature of the wheels, while this action does happen, it only works early in the battle when spin velocity is high. Later in the battle, when spin velocity drops, the lower placement of Loop's rollers compared to Defense's ring causes scraping, instead of preserving spin and aiding Life-After-Death in this state, the low placement instead acts as brakes that stop the rotation, completely nullifying any Life-After-Death.
- Satomb is a portmanteau between the words "Satan" and "tomb".
- So far it's only been released in stadium sets.
