Someone is about to get hooked the fuck up with some Cyclones. Some TPs, some RRs, some domey ESPs. Someone asked me a long time back if I'd sell off my whole lot. We'll see if they're interested.

If that person doesn't bite, they will be posted before 8:00am on Monday. No dibs until I post the list.

How do I know if I've got a TP cyclone? Got an older cylcone from PIAS a few years ago & it's a milky-white, feels like elite-x, and has a football-shaped sticker w/ weight on the bottom. As a bonus, I just found out it glows in the dark as well.

Good or bad?

Is it a sticker or a stamp?

What he said. It doesn't get any more TP than that.

Too bad it's politically incorrect to throw TP plastic in Finland... And other places.

The other TP Cyclone i have has an ace in Finland :-) They are x outs and the non ace one is a cyclone graphic stamp Glo. Both are way way flippier than the new Gazelle like ESP Cyclone i have.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Does this stability list look right to any one else?

Most Stable ------------Least Stable
Heavy ESP > Pro D > X > Lighter ESP

I loved the stability of my Pro D and they were handy in the winter for the better grip but I wanted something more durable for the warm seasons. I thought I could get a little less stability and more glide by buying my ESP a little lighter. My lighter ESP came out way less stable than my heavies, I was wondering if it is the weight or just mold inconsistency and I had been lucky on all of my heavies.

I've wondered about that myself. I've gotten two versions of the same disc in the same plastic....the only difference was the weight. There was a noticeable difference in stability and I had a hard time believing that was the only reason for flipcity. I've throwing 150 flicks and 170 & 175 weights and they were stable in each weight. Maybe I just got a bad one then.

I have a 170g ESP Cyclone that's beefier than my 170g X Cyclone. Not sure what qualifies as "Lighter ESP", but wanted to throw that in.

Just scored this old-school beauty for free, I don't really know anything about it other than its still very stable and in excellent condition to the eye. 8) 8) 8) My first throw with it was laser straight bomb in the field. Haven't used in on the course yet....

So I am in love with my ESP cyclones. Do I need to get some in other plastics as well? i am playing so infrequently right now that I am throwing my ESP Cyclones most of the time off the Tee cause it is the only thing I can get up to speed right now and am consistent with. So some of you cyclone specialist give me the 411.

Depending on how often you throw your ESP Cyclones and how stable they are....I would consider throwing a X Cyclone. There are subtle differences between the two that I like. My X is a little less stable and I use it to throw uphills for that little extra turn.
