My Review:
Discraft's Cyclone is a fast, small diameter overstable driver. The Cylone is quite simlar to the Eagle in stability. It has a slightly higher resistance to turnover while having similar fade and slightly less speed. Although it's not great into a headwind, the Cyclone works well for straight shots, s-curves, and long hyzers. Although this disc is getting a little dated nowadays, it's still one of the popular longer drivers on the market as it is very controllable, versatile, and has excellent glide. If you are a Discraft thrower and looking for something in betwee an XL and an X2, the Cyclone should be a good choice. The plastic the Cyclone is molded in is quite grippy and more durable than most standard line discs although not as resiliant as the premium lines. The Cyclone is also a good choice for sidearm drives. This disc has been a top seller over the years and was quite influencial in the recent trends of disc design. Although this disc isn't the best choice for a beginner except maybe in lighter weights, it is a good choice for an upgrade from the more understable drivers.
