An interesting and innovative design from Auldey. Considered a level 3 yo-yo (intended for experienced/advanced players of dead response yo-yos), the Iron Dragon V uses a size C, concave 10-ball bearing and Auldey-branded response pads. The body is plastic with metal weight rings near the outer diameter; the side of each halve is entirely covered by a clear, flat plastic ""cap"". The cap functions like a super oversized Z-stack seen on some YoYoFactory models. In fact, the cap actually extends slightly over the rim of the yo-yo which means you can balance the yo-yo on its edge, while it is still spinning. You can also open up other possibilities of creative play by holding the yo-yo by the caps using your index finger and thumb while it is still spinning. This model is very similar to the Auldey Fire Spirit with the exception that it is entirely plastic, the high inside walls of the yo-yo create a narrower string gap, and the cap is completely flat.

Like most other Auldey yo-yos, the packaging includes a radar graph. The graph is intended to help you visualize the data points of six playing characteristics of the yo-yo. Strong characteristics are indicated by the portion of the graph that is closest to the characteristic's name; conversely, weak portions are indicated by the characteristic falling closer to the middle of the chart. Clockwise, starting at the 12 o'clock position, the six characteristics are labeled as follows: sleep time (or revolving time), fault tolerance, stability, sensitivity (responsiveness), speed, and strength. Depending on if you enjoy an original response yo-yo or a dead response yo-yo, you can view the sensitivity rating as either good or bad. The chart indicates that the yo-yo is not very sensitive.

Depending on the translation, this model is also known as Steel Dragon V, Iron Dragon V, Black Iron Dragon V, Dark Steel Dragon, Dark Metal Dragon, Black Iron Sword

The Iron Dragon V is similar in idea to the "Manual Acceleration" and "Photon Spirit" yo-yos also from Auldey.

This yo-yo, among many others that Auldey has released, is based on the Chinese animated television series "Blazing Teens" that debuted in China, 2006. The show's premise is yo-yo competitions among youth and schools. Read more about "Blazing Teens" on Wikipedia. There are also viewable episodes on YouTube.
