I love it. I have an ESP cyclone. It reminds me of a faster Roc (how it feels in my hand and its flight path). For me it flies super straight with a touch of fade at the end.

Thats an ESP not an X. The X will probably be flippier... but I'm not sure what tooling it is... what are you giving him? What you are giving him may be better than what he is giving you...

I picked up a Pro-D Cyclone about a month ago and it quickly became my most consistent and straightest flying driver. It also holds a curve fairly well.

I wanted another Eclipse, but couldn't find any so I took a chance on the Cyclone and it really worked out well.

Go for it. Use it as a long mid/ control fairway driver type disc!

Get yourself an Esp Cyclone. Top 3 best discs. It does whatever you want. I have a modest collection of 52 1st run's those were the best.

I highly recommend the cyclone, in both ESP and X. The X handles low power and is versatile. It is very easy to throw. As far as useful distance for me, it is like a long mid or short fairway. It S-curves nicely. It is far more useful overall than the Wolf, in my opinion. It handles well with many lines.

I will mention the ESP, just because it has been brought up. I think it handles power well. I can throw mine to match my Teebird in distance and straight line. It has more speed and stability than the X Cyclone. It works lines so well. One of my favorites.

I basically use my X Cyclone as a powered down ESP Cyclone.

Seeing this guy throw em is what led me to the clone.

I find the clone to be very reliable and workable- lil turn, lil fade, but basically straight.

I use a mix of tourney pros and esp. I personally would prefer a pro d over x but the x is still good.

Would an ESP Cyclone overlap much with the Buzzz? I've started to think of the Buzzz as almost a fairway driver; would the ESP Clone give enough extra distance to make it worth it?
