Review: The cyclone would be my best choice for "1 disc rounds." My favorite characteristic is it's rim. The rim fits great into my hand. Clean releases and accurate shots. And confidence.

I've never used it with full power, only as short drives, approaches and putts. I'm not sure how it will fly with 100% power - I think I will try that this week - hehe.

I am a pretty accurate putter when using the cyclone to putt. I think it's the grip(confidence). Although, it has a tendency to bounce out of the chains or slip right through. But I figure, I'd rather hit the basket and drop out than miss with a huge fly-by.

Last week I aced a 170 footer with the cyclone x.

Review: While a big fan of the original plastic cyclone, I am not sure I like the x plastic. It seems somewhat more overstable than previous versions, but this may be because d plastic beats up quicker.
This disc is actually hard to turn over unless you try and is very accurate. The distance seems more like a mid range than a driver. I also don't remember d cyclones being as domey. I was expecting it much more stable rather than overstable.

Review: The Cyclone while being an older disc still is a very valuable disc in my bag. I have found many uses for it, and that numbers growing. I use mine for throws 300-350' where I dont want to risk turning my buzzz over. It flies straight and after being slightly broken in will have little to know fade without loosing much of its slightly overstable characteristics (no turn over unless poorly thrown). This disc will hold a nice long anhyzer line also, i can get it to turn with no fade or turn and fade back at the end, however I want. By todays standards i would characterize this disc as a fast slightly overstable fairway driver with midrange like feel and characteristics. I also found a new use yesterday. While fighting 25 mph winds i found on shots in the 200' range where I would use my buzzz without the wind (typically head wind, but some cross wind) the cyclone works great. It will be a while before the cyclone makes its way out of my bag if it ever does. Im just afraid of beating up the X plastic too fast.
