Nice thrower, I bag 2 now. I was hoping to see it in Z. I would love to see it in glow plastic. Throws like driver, glides like a mid range.

I have a old kc tee bird in my bag as a go to stable disc. The Archer is under-stable, well the 2 I have bagged are. The 2 are a better form of a Stratus IMO. As it has gotten colder the disc have gotten more under-stable(AR16), 173-174g.

The AR16 does not feel or fly like any Teebird I've thrown.

I'm excited to try one in Z. Would be nice if they get a hair more stable.

The AR version was super flippy. Like brand spanking new, comparable to the oldest most beat base-line mid I've thrown. Not a bad option for people who don't want to wait for discs to season.

Def weird to see it called simply a "driver", since it's tweener mid/fairway at fastest. Especially with the large diameter it seems quite mid-ish.
