Forge Disc - Knuckle
Main article: Forge Disc - Knuckle
Knuckle is a circular Forge Disc with six notches around the perimeter and four holes near the center of the Forge Disc. The letter "K" is written on its prongs for easy differentiation from other Forge Discs. Due to the holes in the Disc, most of the weight of Knuckle is focused around its perimeter giving it high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) which results in excellent Stamina properties. However, it lags behind other Forge Discs like Spread and Gravity in terms of Stamina potential.
Although, one advantage Knuckle holds over the aforementioned Forge Discs is increased Burst Resistance which only falls behind Down and Armed, both of which suffer from scraping issues and low Stamina respectively. Due to its good Stamina, decent weight and high Burst Resistance, Knuckle was once an excellent Forge Disc for all kinds of Combinations. However, Knuckle has one major weakness, the protrusions nullify Life-After-Death potential which is detrimental in the current Life-After-Death centered metagame.
Performance Tip - Unite
Main article: Performance Tip - Unite
Unite features a flat rubber tip with a sharp plastic tip in the center, akin to the Coated Sharp Performance Tip of Metal Fight Beyblade, that sits at the standard height. When launched straight down into the stadium, the sharp tip in the center will keep the Beyblade stable and still in the center, preventing Stamina loss.
When a mint condition Unite is either knocked off balance by an opponent or launched at an angle, the rubber will make contact with the stadium, creating an aggressive movement pattern with speeds similar to Xtreme. However this aggressive movement is somewhat unreliable as the sharp center can slow it down in the center of the stadium or stop the movement entirely.
When worn however, instead of creating aggressive movement when struck, the rubber will instead act as brakes against a Knock-Out, at the cost of Stamina, before going back to the center of the Stadium due to the sharp tip.
