Review: If I had to pick one single word to describe this disc it would be CONTROL. In a world where there is always some new disc that will magically make you a better player, add 75' to your drives, make all the trees part and allow your flight to glide unscathed, and seek the basket all on it's own to have a disc REMAIN in the lineup is a remarkable thing. I found a 176 Cyclone in the used bin at my local store. I figured why not I could always use a cheap disc for the risky water shots. I'm glad I bought it. In fact after using it a bit I bought another in a lighter weight. The cyclone is an control driver, or fairway driver. The older rim design makes it more forgiving to angles. I've found that the cyclone is a reliable, predictable driver that has become my goto disc. In fact I've got a saying around my home course; "When in doubt, grab the cyclone!" for a straight shot with a slight left hook < 350' it's the clone. It's a wonderful part of the step program too. Putters, mids, fairway drivers, big guns...

The Z cyclone has quickly become my workhorse driver. For me this disc flies very straight and does have a little bit of an understable tendency in high speeds...however not nearly as much as a JLS or an XL. I also find that this disc does not have a very hard low speed fade and will remain straight for most of the flight with a little fade at the end. Out of all the Z discs that I have thrown I find that it is more like its non Z counterpart than the rest. It is a little less prone to turnover and a little faster but other than that this disc is very much like the original cyclone. It also has very good glide for a Z disc. I would recommend this disc for players that find a Z Xpress too easy to turnover or that have mastered the current tournament proline cyclone and want to throw Z plastic.
