I had a glow stalker in the bag for a few weeks back in the summer but couldn't seem to get it. I traded it to a buddy if mine( for a 9/10 opto vision. I think I came out in top) and he throws it for every hole under 350. It just wasn't the the right fit for me

Took it out on a round yesterday. I liked the predictable fade...was longer in D than the Buzzz (like some of you folks said), and was nicely suprised by the way it came out of my hand. It did not do as well as I had hoped for spike hyzer shots, just kinda fell outta the sky w/ no glide, but, I will continue to use it on an as needed basis for now.

Thanks again for the advice!

Surprisingly (to myself) I havnt yet tried the Stalker. I wanted to get one in Z/Glow plastic just to see if it fits me well. I absolutely love my Z-XPress and dont plan on taking that one out of the bag. It's probably my straightest driver as of this moment.

Alright: Who's gonna convince me to get a Z-Stalker? Let's hear it peoples.

I've got one in ESP you can try out. I'd compare it to a TL. We need to play a round anyway.

The ESP doesn't compare well to a Z or Glo Stalker. The Esp will be less stable and should have better glide. However, the ESP Stalker should be a more like the Z-Xpress.

I would like to try an Elite-Z Stalker. I might give that ESP a whirl though. Yes, we do need to get up again. I have a TL but took it out of the bag when I fell in love with my Z-XPress.

I LOVE the Stalker. I throw Z's and Glows. I threw the ESP and gave it to my brother, who, in turn, loves it.

Feels like a natural disc --- if you didn't know disc golf and someone put a Stalker in your hand, it would feel comfortable. I would suggest it's a great disc for beginners: not too fast, not big rimmed, and flies on Buzzz-like lines.

They can get flippy once beat in, but so do most discs as they wear. My go-to Z Stalker still holds a great flight, but flips a bit with over-snap.

^^^ What they said.

I don't have a huge arm so I use it as a placement Driver that just beyond a buzzz's reach but not a long distance drive (400+ ft). The thing is...I can throw it like a midrange (grip, power, footing, etc) and still get more D than a buzzz. Anyway, I've actually thought about what Innova disc it compares to and the best I can figure, it's like a shorter, more consistent TL with less turn...but I throw exclusively at 174g and I know that they are more flippy at lighter weight. I had a 170g Stalker that went further than my 174's...did a really great hyzer-flip. Anyway....(I get carried away with my Stalker love)...I haven't thown anything I think it compares to.

Okay, still on the fence. Saw a Glo Z stalker on Marshall St for a good price (Nov special on Glo's). Thought it might be good to throw now that the days are shorter. It's not a max D disc so chances are good I'd be able to track it down after a toss. I don't have any glo discs currently. Hmmm...
