Actually, Unger Park is flooded and closed, so maybe I can put them back in now! :P


Have you ever thought about throwing a #2 Driver??

Yeah, when they're new, they're kind of like a Cyclone. I can throw mine within 20-30 feet of my DX TeeBirds.

Thread Derail:

Ode to an overlooked great disc.
Image
Just simply the best disc Lightning ever made. It was the first fast disc that was stable enough to be useful. Forget that it floats, who cares. It flies in-between a Roc and TeeBird, I used to call it a longer Roc. It's just a great disc.

But...it's a Lightning disc so it has to suck, right? I'd like to see Lightning release this in their more durable plastic just to throw. So it wouldn't float? Who cares? Not me. If they ran some with the old airplane stamp, I might buy eight or ten of them!

Hmmm...release a great old disc in a new, upgraded plastic. That's a great Idea! Discraft should do that with the Cyclone!

Wait, what was this thread about again? :lol:

I never got the "floats" thing. I've walked away from several water hazards thinking "when the wind blows that #2 Diver to shore, somebody is going to score a nice disc." :?

Yeah exactly, who dives in after their disc thats floatin in the middle a water hazard? And most the water hazards I've seen are nasty.

So, has anyone else thrown the ESP Cyclone?

These things have glide for days. I threw mine first shot on a buzzz hole. I normally would throw my buzz firm but not hard on the hole. So I threw the 'clone the same way. Way to long. Pretty cool disc, but I need much more testing. Also Lime Green.
