It was first showcased at the 2015 World Yo-Yo Contest, where the prototypes were tested by great 1A players such as Shinya Kido and Daniel Borges. Victor Sacchelli used a Balrog prototype to win the Paranaense Yo-Yo Contest in the 1A Division. This yo-yo just comes to show what Ioiô Fênix is capable of when designing high performance yo-yos, and what they're capable of is a lot.
A special black edition of the Balrog, featuring engravings by Brazilian graffiti artist and former Duncan Crew Brazil member Titi Freak, was also released. This edition was first given a pre-release at the Brazilian Nationals in Spring 2016, and given a wider retail release later on. Each Titi Freak edition Balrog also comes with high-end Kitty Strings.
