Description of Karma Forge Disc

First released with the B-189 Guilty Longinus Karma Metal Destroy-2 Booster on September 11th, 2021, Karma is a Forge Disc from the Dynamite Battle system.

This Forge Disc features an aggressive perimeter, made of ten small upward sloping blades. This design is intended to create down force in a right-spin combination, and upper force in a left-spin combination.

In theory, down force pushes the combination against the stadium floor, increasing friction between the tip and the stadium’s floor. Upper force is the opposite, it is meant to decrease the friction of the performance tip on the stadium floor, which could increase stamina. In reality, this has no real impact on the combination’s performance.

Furthermore, the aggressive shape of Karma decreases the LAD (Life After Death) potential of the combination, preventing it from rolling at the end of a battle. The only way to make relatively good use of this aggressive design is in attack combinations, in an attempt to use the Forge Disc shape as a second contact point. Unfortunately, Karma is not wide enough to act as a second contact point in a reliable manner.

Karma is also outclassed by other Forge Discs because of its lack of weight and OWD (Outward Weight Distribution). Giga, Over, Fortress, Illegal, or Nexus + S Gear are all preferred options in a competitive environment.

Final Thoughts

Therefore, Karma is not a must have for competitive players. However, it can be a nice addition in a Beyblade Burst collection.
