Performance Tip - Bearing
Main article: Performance Tip - Bearing
Bearing features a free spinning, low angled cone tip composed of PolyOxyMethylene (POM) plastic and supported by ball bearings, akin to a mix between Yielding and Bearing Drive from Metal Fight Beyblade.
The POM plastic reduces friction between the stadium floor and the tip while the ball bearings reduces friction between the tip and the shaft, features that grant Bearing the highest Stamina potential in the game. Furthermore the bearing supported free-spinning shaft resists roaming if a Bearing Combination is off balance or low on spin, helping a Combination remain in the center as much as possible. Additionally, because of how small the tip of Bearing is, combined with the wideness of the cone, the Combination will often be off balance, even when it has a lot of Stamina left. This can actually create Disc-to-Layer contact.
However, the Takara Tomy release of Bearing features two critical weaknesses. The first is the poor Knock-Out Resistance caused by the POM tip; since there is so little friction between the tip and stadium floor, Bearing Combinations are highly susceptible to Knock-Outs. The second and more important is the poor Burst Resistance; while low friction and free-spinning tips normally increase a Combination's Burst Resistance, Bearing's spring lock is noticeable much weaker than any other Performance Tip at the time of writing, making Bearing Combinations the easiest to Burst in the game.
