Review: This disc is the third disc that I ever purchased, 8 years ago when in college. It is still my "go to" disc for any hole that I am able to throw a long (350-375) helix or for just about any hole in a strong wind. My original disc is totally thrashed, so it is way less stable than it once was, but it still flies flat, low, and far in a headwind. I lost it about a month ago and tried to buy another, only to find out that they are out of production. Luckly, somebody found it and called me so I got it back. So if you can find one on Ebay I would grab it. I tried to replace it with both a firebird and a monster, but neither disc will fly as reliably or predictable as the X-Clone.

Review: Great one finger forehand disc. Takes well to players that use a lot of snap in their shots. Biggest downfall, it's severe lack of durability. I went through about 4 of them 2 seasons ago, before giving up. They just get trashed and and turn into roller discs. I'm hoping they make an elete z version, I'd be all over that. Great design/poor durability.

Review: Number 1 driver in my bag. It's beat up and super reliable. Like a knife through the wind and trees. Superior disc.

I have a 174 X-Clone in the original standard plastic, and it has been my most trusted driver for over 5 years. When this disc was new, it was impossible to turn over. Now the disc has notches all around the rim and doesn't fade nearly as hard. It has become a very straight and predictable disc. It won't fight against an anhyzer until the very end of flight. If thrown low, this disc is phenomenal in the wind. I am lucky I haven't lost my X-Clone yet, because I haven't had much luck replacing it. A while back I tried some lighter weight X-Clones thinking they would fly further, but they tended to turn over too easily. Recently, I bought several candy plastic discs, a Beast, a Valkyrie, and a Tee-bird, thinking they would add major distance to my drive. When I went out into the field, the weathered X-Clone couldn't be beat. I once crawled through poison ivy to retrieve this disc. Also, a friend of mine ONLY throws side arm, and with his grip he loves the grooved rim unique to the X-Clone.
