A version of the Hyper Dragon but with solid plastic caps instead of aluminum.

In 1999, Bandai's yo-yo product line was sold exclusively in Japan. It was not until the latter end of 2018 that Bandai began selling their updated HyperCluster yo-yo line in the US.

Original retail price: 2400 Yen Japan (about $20 US in 1999). Sold for $50 US two years later from the Infinite Illusions 2001 print catalog.

See a PDF of the 2001 Infinite Illusions catalog (2.4 MB) listing the Hyper Dragon parts.
