what's the plastic on these feel like, and exactly how overstable are we talking here? I can't decide if I want one or not. Shes a nice looking disc tho.

The plastic feel like Star, flexes like G (maybe a little less), and holds up to dings like Champion. It’s INSANE, they custom made it.

For me the flight numbers held true. But beat in to have a -1 at high speed within a couple months. As soon as I got it my OS destroyers left my bag because I could do the exact same thing with a Cypress but with a way better feel in my hand that led to cleaner more consistent releases. Now I use my best in Cypress as a long distance control driver if that makes sense. It gives me a little flex, but will always come back at the end.

I saw someone on here compare it in looks to a Firebird, that is exactly right. It’s like a faster Firebird. I told my buddies, “I throw my Cypress how I see pros throw their firebirds.” Lol!

At the end of the day this disc jumped out to me and straight into my bag because it is an anomaly. It’s more OS than it feels like it should be with how narrow it’s prifile is and how not chunky the rim is. Everybody I’ve seen throw it puts it on a hyzer their first rip just because the feel in hand betrays it’s Flight. It feels too comfy to be an OS distance driver!!!

To clarify I am on Team AGL, but I’ve been bagging the Cypress since before I got on their team

Good luck, team AGL? Looks like you managed to make a disc that is better than the biggest companies two most popular discs combined...

Looks like the newer runs will be more US, 12/5/-2/2 is the numbers. While it nice to have a Utility disc and I'm sure some big arms enjoy the meathook I'm looking forward to trying out this more mortal friendly edition. I hope they do continue the OG Cypress too since there is a niche slot for it

I just wanted to give an update on the retooled cypress! It has new numbers of 12/5/-2/2 (like previously mentioned). I've been throwing it as my go-to driver for several months and during a few tournaments and this is what I have to say about it.

It's definitely more stable than the numbers say. To clarify I'm talking about the white, 2nd run Cypress. I know they are in the middle of putting out a new run (same mold, just another batch) in pink.

The Flight: I'd give it like a -0.5/2 out of the box. Notice, it's a high speed driver so you need to throw it =) I've noticed myself throwing my Cypress on holes that others are throwing Firebirds and Thunderbirds on. It's definitely no Firebird in terms of stability, but it does have a great reliable fade.
One of mine that I bag has beat into a -1/2, and I love it. I'm typically throwing it 360' on flat ground very consistently. That's a real world throw, not just walking into a field and unloading =) haha!

The Plastic: It's definitely the gummiest plastic I bag. I know this will be attractive to some, and a turnoff to others. My main observation on the plastic is that while it is flexible, it does not feel floppy while throwing. And it holds up to dings very well. Somewhere between star and champion for durability.

The Grip/Feel: This is what sets apart the Cypress for me. Just about everyone I've handed mine to have said, "Wow this feels easy to throw." Now this is what I love about it, and what messes people up. It's so comfortable, people try to throw it like an understable fairway driver, but that's not what it is! It is not a sidewinder you are gong to hyzerflip to turnover with, but I swear that's how everyone tries to throw it at first! So if you buy one, fight the temptation

Can anyone detail the relationship between Ozone, AGL, and this "hydro" plastic? In other words, who is the OEM for the "hydro m" plastic (same as the Andro C and the Cypress to my eye/feel)? I know it's also the same plastic as the RDG Tyrant (I think...).

Is it Daredevil? I really cannot tell, as I don't have experience with their plastics.

I sold all of the first runs/protos I had but recently received a second run Cypress as a gift.

Thanks!

That's a good question! I do not know, so I guess this reply is pointless haha! I haven't thrown any Ozone, RDG, or Daredevil plastic before. This is possibly a dumb question, but what does OEM stand for?

Not dumb. I actually misused the term, as it typically relates to electronics and/or industrial production. Since discs are "manufactured," though, I figured my misuse wouldn't ruffle too many feathers.
