ESP's have been reported as less stable than a regular Z Stalker. The Z fills a perfect nitch, a less stable ESP I think would be comparable to a TL/XL which are better discs anyways.

From what you have it may work for an understable option, but it's not the best disc out there for that job.

And for some reason, my ESP's always threw high where my Z throws low and flat.

Im a BH lefty. I LOVE the Stalker as I've already exclaimed. The disc feels very natural, easy to grip, no funky rim, not too deep, and control like Janet(Ms Jackson, if you're nasty).
No, it doesn't have the River's endless glide; what does?
Slightly longer than a Buzzz but with a fairway driver feel. Worth trying if you haven't.

Here's video of a hyzer drive and an anhyzer drive.

In the first vid, a straight shot over trouble about 355'. Put it on a slight hyzer and it holds the whole way. Im at the 30 second mark:


Second vid, Flyboy, a.k.a. God's Course. Hole is "Damnit;" nearly 1,000' along a big pond to the right. My drive off the tee pad with the Z Stalker -- watch at the 1:51 mark for the hole pic, then mine is the second drive(2:05 mark).

One last video.

This one is from atop a hill overlooking a soccer field, hole 10 at Foothills/ Easley. Aiming for the soccer goal.

This is exactly why I love stalkers as well

I just found a 170-172, flat, pink, Z Stalker. My first impressions are that it is a Leopard with a bead. I can see the comparisons to a longer Buzzz, and to a broken in Champ TeeBird. Seems like a good disc, not sure if it really fits into my bag though, but I'm gonna try it some more just because I have it, and had previously never tried one.

It's still out there for sure. Unless online/brick stores are only getting backstock? I hope it's still in production at least - I put them back in my bag recently and they fit perfectly in my lineup.

yeah I mean, they are online everywhere but I hope to see some new runs and some special runs etc. I haven't used a Stalker in a LONG time but recently decided to bust one out and now I wanna know I can get what I want - they should keep making stalkers and made another disc just like it maybe without a bead. but discraft is weird sometimes, they make certain discs OOP when they are like, ....great discs....its weird

It's still on their flight chart. They've got just like the Wasp where it's one of their best molds & only is made in one plastic. I've got enough Z Stalkers to last me the next 5+ years of heavy use so I'm not worried about it going OOP. I was very sad to see they stopped making them in Glo-Z.

Stalker is my most used disc other than my driver. FH or BH it just helps me carve up the woods.
