Vanguard (バンガード, Bangādo) is a Forge Disc released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It debuted with the release of the B-145 DX Starter Venom Diabolos Vanguard Bullet on July 6th, 2019.
Vanguard is a disc with 6 blades hanging downwards. While these low hanging positions are a major scrape risk, in truth they also give Vanguard similar properties to Wall and Lift where their low hanging shapes synergise well with Bearing based combinations, as Vanguard lowers a Combination's center of gravity, allowing a Bearing-based Spin-Equalization Combination stay upright for longer, allowing for more rotations and Precession.
==Use in Spin equalisation combinations==
Vanguard can be used in the spin equalisation combination Lord Spriggan/Diabolos II Vanguard Bearing. Lord's rubber and the aforementioned chips's dual spin compatibility allows it to spin steal from left spin and right spins alike using the aforementioned lower centre of gravity.
While lighter than Wall and Core Disc combinations, Vanguard is still a viable option if Wall is unavailable. However, with the release of Tapered and Wheel, Vanguard's light weight makes it currently unviable.

As such, Vanguard is not a must have but is still a worthy addition to a blader's collection.
