I plan on ordering the tornado. A guy at parker recommended it over the cyclone or hurricane. Said it was quieter and you still have 330fps. My dealer held the tornado, didn't shoo it, and said he was quit impressed with it. I've not shot any of them I'm just saying what I'll be ordering. But like you said, everyone says it's compact but specs show the same on the web site. I'll know when it gets here.
