This is a modular yo-yo that you can configure six different ways (and probably more but that's what the brochure shows). There is the basic Hyper Dragon body. Accessories include three different axle types, 8 different halve types, and four different weight rings. You can configure the yo-yo as a plastic butterfly, plastic imperial modified (with or without rubber rings on the outside perimeter), aluminum butterfly modified.

The kit includes one basic Hyper Dragon yo-yo with aluminum frame caps. This edition is the limited THP (Team High Performance) version. Also includes a string, axle rod, axle sleeve bearing, and a tool of some sort to take apart the yo-yo.

At the time, this was the most adaptable yo-yo to any playing style that had ever been made. This yo-yo and accessories HD-01, -02, -03, -04, -05, -06, and -07 are from 1998. HD-09, -10, -11, -12, and -13 are from 1999. The weight and diameter are for the basic Hyper Dragon yo-yo itself.

Original retail price: $50 US.
