Thumbs up Get in the zone, CYCLONE zone....

Does anybody else use these fantastic fairway drivers besides Three Putt and myself?!? This disc alone is a huge crutch in my bag. it's about as important to me as my Buzzz is. I find myself pulling it out more and more as my "safety" driver. I know what it does and I know what it's going to do. Never a question... I LOVE the ESP Cyclone. I think I'm gonna marry it. Who else throws these things and why?!?!?

Picked up a Pro-D Cyclone earlier this year and it's been money for nice straight drives.
I got it to replace an Eclipse that I lost and haven't looked back.

Love the Cyclone. I've owned both the Pro-D and ESP, great discs. Only problem, I can't keep one in my bag. Make one bad throw anywhere near a bush and it is gone. Never to be seen again....

I just got three early/mid 90's Cyclones from Bizarbies. When I first started playing these were the drivers to have! I love 'em. They do what I tell it to do and I feel the're a nice compliment to my Buzzz and Hornet. The Cyclone will always have a spot in my bag.

I have a Cyclone from the late 90's the base plastic that I used to throw along with a DX Gazelle. Liked them both and they flew similar for me.

I am just getting back into the game and since my local course is heavily wooded I was looking for a more durable Gazelle but have found it is no longer available in premium plastic. I have a Cyclone in elite-X arriving later this week and I am looking forward to giving it a go.

I used to throw tp clones back in the day and loved em,i actually went back to the clone last fall and enjoyed the reunion. I bought a stack of tp clones but went with esp's instead. Its a great driver and great at shaping lines. Then after that I went back to glow gazelles which is nearly identical. Anywho,clones are great and sneaky sneaky long but cant handle wind for ****. This is where I wish they still made cyclone 2's /x clones for extra beef in a clone.

Now,i dont use any fairway driver. Sold off the clones and gazelles. Good discs though

the cyclone is great. i still rate it as the single most influential disc golf driver ever. now that they've come out with the super-cyclone (aka stalker) the cyclone's are on the shelf with the signed 2X pink starfire that val jenkins gave me.

I used to throw alot of clones back in the day too, when they were a long distance driver! Back then my favorite was a beat in X-Clone. Nowadays I primarily throw the Buzzz.

I bounce between cyclones, eagles, and gazelles because I am indecisive. Right now I am using gazelles, but I love cyclones, and I actually still have a super beat TP for distance sidearms (my sidearm is clean but not good. maybe 250' with it so I need something super understable) and BH rollers. The only thing that bothers me is the lack of a good base plastic option. The pro D ones i've used have gashed like nobody's business and all of the X ones I have seen are not the walled lake tooling or are really really flat walled lake tooling.
