How does the Explorer and Stalker compare? Looking for a workhorse fairway with for a sub-350 thrower. How does Stalker beat in?

Stalker will be straighter than an Explorer/Teebird type disc. Z Stalkers take a long time to beat up.

Just got one of the limited color Glo Stalkers. The grip on this is really good. It feels a lot like ESP. There's a bunch on eBay right now.

How flat are they? My Z Glo's are all pretty flat, and all of my newer Z's have some dome. Really prefer the grip on the flatter ones.

I just compared it to my 3 production Glo Z's & 2 recent Z's. I would say its not as flat as the Glo Z's & a touch less dome than the regular Z's.

I'm tying to find that workable fairway driver and the Stalker caught my eye since I see it described so often as a longer Buzzz. Can anyone compare the Stalker to the likes of the Leo3, F5, FD, etc? I need something that can take some torque and from what I've seen of the Stalker it seems to have a little more stability than the F5 and Leo3, but I'm curious if anyone's compared a few of the molds in this category.

I have been throwing Discmania Fds for ~3 seasons. D-line fds for rollers and get out of trouble shots. Beat up S-Line fd for long anhyzers and hyzer flip to flat shots, and then swirls S-Line or Metal flake C-Line for straighter high power shots that flex a bit. I know have played several rounds with Stalkers in my bag instead of FDs. The stalkers have less glide, less high speed turn, and less fade. I'm at ~5k elevation and what these stalkers do up here is very similar to what teebirds did for me at sea level. They are awesome. The lack of glide and the lack of fade makes them an extremely accurate longer midrange. Anytime I can see a midrange line but I want an extra 40-60ft the stalker is killing it. I am a midrange thrower. I really like a P-Line Md4 or a color glow MD-3 or a Buzzz, buit in low ceiling or less than ideal traction situations it makes sense to throw a fairway at 70% power rather than trying to throw a midrange at 85% power. The stalker is simply the best disc I have ever found to do this. I plane to make a youtube video soon to help discribe just how good the Stalker is for me. For reference I am comfortable throwing midrange discs at 280 to 340 and the Stalker goes 330 to 360 on VERY STRAIGHT lines. It is the best disc I have never thrown and I have thrown a lot of discs.

Somehow you managed to describe exactly what I was looking for.

I'm also a heavy midrange thrower. I bag 5-6 Rocs at any given time to get me anything up to 340ish but I need something to bridge the gap from Rocs to Thunderbirds. I had issues with the glide FDs have and I never did get comfortable with Leo3s. F5s were the closest thing I came to liking, but they were far too eager to turnover. I will definitely be giving Stalkers a shot at filling this slot. Thanks!

I've been throwing Stalkers for a long time & have always thought them to be glidey. Doth Savek is up in the mountains & that elevation gives it a different flight? I completely agree with the lack of lateral movement.
