It's a slow driver. Of course it's not going to feel like a Nuke.

For the record, I don't see a bead in that pic, let alone two.

I haven't seen the disc. That is a pic Austin Turner sent me. He is the one who said "double bead"

I've sure Discraft will send us some soon. They usually send team members one a few weeks after they debut at an event.

I see the small half bead on the outer edge (circled in green), but is the inner rim (in red) considered a bead? There's a hint of curl, but less than...an FL for example.

The stalker was truly a longer buzz. Fh and Bh. It is a great fairway disc despite having a bead which was hardly noticeable.

The Stalker is the only disc I've ever been comfortable throwing FH. It's got a mini-bead and I never really notice it. One of my all time favorite molds.

Down in my own personal vault of all things plastic, I have a stack of TI stalkers and some Zs. It is a great mold.

Once again back to discrafts downfall is not making it in other plastics like x. I know its available in d now, but their D is crayons.
