Cyclone 2
Flight Rating Category Value What Discraft says:
The Cyclone 2 is a more over-stable version of the Cyclone. If you need extra stability into the wind or because you throw very hard, this is the disc. This disc will take a high speed release and come back consistently. The big arms love this disc.

Review: The Cyclone 2 with Discraft's original plastic is the most reliable disc that I've ever thrown. I played in the early 90's until now, 2006, and I will say that my cyclone 2, yellow, 167g driver is still the best disc in my bag. I'm very upset that Discraft discontinued them, and even worse, near the end of their production, switched to the lighter plastic. They are very hard to find, and when I find one, I snatch it as quickly as possible. It has a very reliable S curve flight pattern, and holds hyzer and anhyzer throws with a perfectly predictable flight path. I have thrown no better disc in 15 years. I can reach near the distance of a new discwing quarter k (new... not after impact) with the cyclone, but get more accurate final placements with the Cyclone 2. If you do get ahold of an original plastic Cyclone 2 driver... I suggest you never throw it, and instead, send it to me.

Review: I have been using yellow 167 Cyclone 2's in my bag for almost 10 years. But they have stopped production on them. I don't like the feel or reliability of the elite plastic. I have had 5 aces in my life, ALL have been yellow Cyclone 2's in the 165 to 169g weight. They are extremely predictable in flight, GREAT into a headwind. You can drive it low and flat and it will go real straight until it starts slowing down, then it has a nice left drop coming in. You can throw it high around trees and get a very predictable turn back on the other side. I LOVE this disc ! It's frustrating that they stopped making them. I'm always hunting for them. I had a discgolf website call me 1 year after I asked for some. They had found 2 old style yellow Cyc 2's, one was a 167g (my favorite!) and the other a 170g. Within one week I threw my 5th ace! It the most reliable disc in my bag!!! Please start production again ! Make them like you used to. I'm sure there are other die hards like me who need that disc in their bag.

Review: I bought my Cyclone 2 back around 1992 and played it for a few years then retired from the sport. Recently started playing again in summer 2005 and the Cyclone 2 remains a staple in my bag. It's stable, grippy, and is the type of disc that tends to go right where I want to put it. It may not go quite as far as some of the new plastic I've tried (Pro Wraith, Orc) but I'm not talking huge distances either.

It's hard to find Cyclones in the "original cyclonic plastic" anymore but they are wonderful and reliable discs. Stable, accurate, and very little fade at the end (when thrown flat). Highly recommended if you can find one.

For me the Cyclone 2 was my first disc and as I have improved as found on use: overstable low speed shots that swoop to the left as they come within 50 ft of the hole. This disc is very sturdy, and extremely predictable in its flight patterns. I use a 162g and have trouble getting the disc to go any great distance, but as an approach driver, or to sweep round awkwardly placed trees, it is priceless.

I started playing three years ago and a cyclone was one of the first discs that i bought. it served as a good driver as a beginner but slowly lost its place in my bag as i threw harder and technology improved. However, it is now one of the most important discs in my bag. It has aged nicely and is perfect for several holes on my home course of Hudson Mills in Ann Arbor, MI. I throw a very high long turnover with it and distance it gets is awesome. I'm LHBH and normally throw 350-375, and the cyclone2 is perfect for a tight 300-325 hole. I can just toss is over the trees and let it glide in. A great disc to keep around down the road
