I remember throwing Cyclone 2s years ago, and they pretty much sucked. The Z Cyclone isn't too awful, but it's just nothing like the other ones. I don't have any cylcone 2s anymore to
The only way I could tell a Cyclone and a Cyclone 2 apart was by the tooling or the stamp. Seriously, I could never figure out the difference in the mold. The Cyclone 2 is maybe a little flatter on top, but the DGA Flathead Cyclones were flippy and not at all like a Cyclone 2. So, really I have no idea what the difference was. Whatever it was it was subtle.
The Z's I have don't have the tooling underneath, the tooling is on the side of the rim. It doesn't even say "Cyclone" in the tooling that I noticed. Since I can't tell the two molds apart without the old tooling, I can't say. I think the Z Cyclone sucks becasue the disc does not shrink enough out of the mold. The diameter is too big and the nose is too blunt, which makes it slower and more overstable than a Cyclone should be.
