Energy Layer - Turbo Achilles A4
- Main article: Energy Layer - Turbo Achilles A4
Hasbro's Turbo Achilles A4 is a Balance Type Energy Layer, featuring a shield and an armored face facing forward in the center, meant to represent the Layer's namesake, the Greek hero Achilles. The perimeter consists of four large blades as the primary points of contact, two of which are molded in the shape of swords, granting the Energy Layer high Knock-Out and Burst Attack potential. Unlike its Takara Tomy and Pro Series System counterparts Cho-Z Achilles, Turbo Achilles A4 lacks the metal in the sword blades. In addition, it does not have the tall teeth of its counterparts, instead having weak slopes and thus average Burst Resistance. However, Turbo Achilles A4 still retains the anti-Bursting gimmick called the "Turbo Awakening".
At high spin velocity, the centrifugal force activates a mechanism, revealing sub wings called the "Turbo Wings" and in turn extending "Burst Stopper" tabs in the grooves meant to fit the prongs of the Forge Disc. These Burst Stoppers then obstruct the Forge Disc, preventing the Combination from Bursting. Unlike its Takara Tomy and Pro Series System counterparts, these Burst Stoppers use much weaker springs and are thus easier to activate but also push in, rendering the gimmick useless. Due to the bistable nature of the gimmick, the wings and tabs must be manually pushed in after every match to allow the gimmick to work as intended. Only two of Turbo Achilles A4's "Turbo Wings" will move the tabs.
Turbo Achilles A4's size makes it heavier than most other Hasbro Energy Layers, granting it high Attack Potential. Due to the small size of the "Turbo Wings", Turbo Achilles A4 has identical Attack Potential whether or not the gimmick is activated.
Unlike previous SlingShock System Layers and like other Layers with the "Turbo" prefix, Turbo Achilles A4 is incompatible with a Level Chip.
Forge Disc - 00
- Main article: Forge Disc - 00
00, like other odd numbered Core Discs, is a symmetrical, elliptical disc that can facilitate a Disc Frame. 00 is one of the heaviest Discs, outclassing 0 by 1 gram, and has an ideal weight distribution for all Combinations. Its high Outward Weight Distribution (OWD) grants it not only the highest Stamina potential out of all other Core Discs, but its weight grants it high Attack and Defense potential. With the use of Disc Frames, 00 can be used to great effect in any Combination. While the weight can increase the risk of Bursts, the weight of most SwitchStrike/God Layers and Cho-Z Layers can compensate.
Performance Tip - Dimension-S
- Main article: Performance Tip - Dimension-S
Dimension-S is Hasbro's SlingShock counterpart to Takara Tomy's Dimension and Dimension' Performance Tips, and is similar in appearance to both. Like Dimension and Dimension', Dimension-S features the same stepped spiral design around its perimeter, with the word "Balance" engraved twice into its underside, alluding to the part's designated Type, and a notched ring around the casing of its tip that can be rotated to make use of its manual height changing gimmick.
