Xclones were the shit, but they couldn't take abuse.

I had fun shopping through the large stack of ESP Cyclones at Final 9 Sports. I found the very coolest ESP Cyclone ever, bright yellow, rigid, flat top, with a rainbow foil stamp. It has a very interesting flight, it tends to turn just a tick, and then locks into the line. Very gentle fade at the end. Definitely an ace run disc. Love it! I just can't get away from how well these discs fly, at least when I find one of the good ones.

Now, if I could only find another way to shop through stacks of ESP Cyclones, rather having to drive all the way to Sacramento!

I have domey Cyclones that in ESP are bricks and in TP rollers... Maybe i should throw a lower PLH flat Cyclone then to get a normal straight flight.
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.

Would anybody be interested in 3 Tourney-Pro X-Clones? I picked em up with winnings at a tournament. I have a white 167, black 170, and black 175. All new and unthrown with tourney stamp.

All Cyclones have pretty much the same PLH, I haven't seen any significant difference between one ESP and any other when comparing under the nose. It's all about dome vs. no dome.

Found a cherry rigid orange flat-top 176g ESP Cyclone today in somebody's stock, it is one of the original ESP Cyclone runs. On my first throw with this disc off the tee on a 350' slightly downhill hole I barely missed the basket...imagine acing with the first shot of a disc!

If anyone finds others like this, I'd love to hear about them...and procure a few more for my collection.

Mine ain't like that but I aced my second time and the first time BH with a Champ Leopard that hadn't been thrown on a round. I had 3 or 4 warm up shots with it jut before that round and it was the first shot in the round with that disc. Sweet.

Awesome, I hope you kept it in your bag!

I now recall that Seppo Paju's ace from the Santa Cruz wharf was also with a new disc (a FB) he had just bought at the fly-mart on the beach. He immediately went back to the seller and asked if they had more just like it.

Heh, yeah. He had brought his DD2's, expecting a distance competition. Finding it was a mere 120 meters he had to get some shorter discs. =)

The beach has a steady strong wind to contend with, the Firebird was indeed the very best choice.

I had my camera to my face, and I was snapping telephoto shots of Seppo from the beach (on the other side of the basket). I heard people's voices get excited and pipe up and when I took the camera away I saw his disc arcing right at the basket and then bam! There were like 1000 people there who immediately exploded into cheers and people all the way down the beach got up and walked over to check out what all the commotion was about.

You can see the disc just to the left of Avery's head:

After everyone finished throwing, Seppo got a proper congratulations:

I'll inform Seppo about these pics. Nice placement to show the crowd :-)

I notice he already has one of them on his FB banner. :D

I never released those photos until now, I suppose the video collage from Jamie Thomas was so awesome that I didn't bother...
