The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

First off what type of plastic, color and weight are you throwing?
1) Does it perform like a teebird in the sense that it is going to go at least straight if not hyzering out and going left? RHBH
2) Does it perform like a buzz in the sense that it can hold high anny lines and if thrown with power or finnese hold that line and land flat?
3) What distance holes do you use it throw and how far do you generally throw midranges (buzzz to be specific)
4) Any other thoughts on the disc...

I throw an almost new yellow Z stalker 175 I would compare its flight to a Buzzz just a lil more stable. Not as stable as a teebird. You can turn it over and it will come back and finish left with a fairly gentle fade and doesnt skip alot at all. I throw a buzzz as my main mid range and use it on shots up to 310' or a little over. i'll use the stalker for anything over that, say 350' max. Its a good disc id recommend it.
i have a 175 stalker. and i love you just throw it where you want it to go perfectly striaght i can throw it about 350 i can trow a buzz about 300. definetly get one ive had 2 the 175 and a 168 definetly go for a heavy one there great discs.
i consider it a straight/neutral fairway driver
For me it always comes out of my hand to the right at a bad angle. I have never been able to release it properly even once. I like the way it flies but since it won't come out facing where I send it it doesn't work for me. The Esp Cyclone is the superior fairway driver for this year for me.
Z, 175-176.

1. Yes, a lot like a tbird, does not finish with quite as much fade. I throw long, and the stalker can get close to 400 with a distance line, thrown flat I get 350 or so out of it.

2. It will hold an anny line and finish flat unless you snap the pizzz out of it.

3. I throw a buzzz 340 and in, the stalker will reach the max d of a buzzz easier, and go a bit further without having to throw it really hard. I will throw it in control drive situations mostly.

4. Great disc, my opinion.

The Stalker is a faster disc than a Teebird, but I would compare it's flight to that of a faster TL. It holds pretty good lines for the way I throw it. I'm usually about throwing straight and flat anytime I can unless the hole calls for something different. I throw a Buzzz around 330' and I haven't measured the Stalker distance. It is also winter for me here so I don't have a real good place to throw with good footing. I think it is a great disc and would use it on tight long fairways or even wide open since it is so stable.
For me The Stalker (168g.) is like a Buzzz, but longer.
I don't throw the long distances as everyone else on here so far, so this may give you a different perspective... I use it for up to 280 (I use my Buzz for up to 240 ish). It flies straight with a small fade at the end (if thrown flat). I use it along with a Z Xpress. My Z Xpress plays understable an makes a good combo with my Stalker ( I have the Z Glo 175).
Elite Z Stalker-
The disc is not as sharp as a TeeBird.
It flies a bit slower, the slower speed makes it very accurate.
The disc is sharper than a Buzzz.
Slightly more overstable than a buzzz.
Use it when you feel your buzzz will not go far enough.
Great addition to the Discraft line!!!

CYCLONE!!!!!!!! Got an ace with my 1st throw.

Here are some Stalker's !!!

Donny, you didn't have a pic of the ESP that were only given out in the Pro Worlds Players pack. Those flew great with a slightly lower profile, more speed, and more HSS than the Z.

They are supposedly going to make them in ESP starting in the Spring which is probably when I will try the disc out again. The ESPs were freakin sweet. Too bad mine went off a cliff at cliff drive.
