What can you say?

The Cyclone changed everything. It was the best all-around driver for 5 or 6 years after it came out.

Discraft followed up the Magnet and Cyclone with the midrange Hawk. With those three discs they had a major improvement in their disc golf offerings. Up until these three discs came out, Lightning had a better selection of discs than Discraft.
Image
The Hawk was also sold in Tournament Pro plastic. It was called the HD Hawk.
Image
We take for granted that discs are available in three or four different kinds of plastic today. Back in '93 the Aviar and the Hawk were the only discs I recall that you could get in two different kinds of plastic.

For some reason, the follow-up driver to the small-diameter Cyclone was another big-diameter driver called the Typhoon. It wasn't very popular.

Then somebody broke a Cyclone mold and Discraft had the overstable companion to the Cyclone they needed, the X-Clone.
Image
For most of the mid 90's this was hands down the best forehand disc on the market. It wasn't very durable, so you had to buy them in stacks!

The X2 was the first Elite Pro disc. I thought it had a really cool stamp.
1st Run X2.
Image
X2.
Image
After the XL came out and was a huge hit, all the Elite Pro discs from then on had the same boring XL-ish type stamp. It was kinda hard for a casual player to tell an X2 from and XL at that point. I always thought that was a mistake and they should have left the original stamp on the X2.

Another 1st run XL. Why does it have a smaller stamp, you ask? I have no idea!
