I've been hyping the Stalker for years but nobody wanted to listen. Looks like PP is going to be throwing it again & it should get some much needed shine. The people will listen to her.

Stalker is a nice disc reminds me of the L mold Eagle but with a bead to get that X flight more so the old mold X Eagles.

Honestly, I have never thrown a stalker, but they have always had a strong niche following and I've always been intrigued by the comments surrounding it.

But truth be told, plenty of Discraft's fairways began to entice be during the winter when I don't get out and throw (looking at you, undertakers and vultures). But then come spring I get back out on the course with my same old bag and after a round or two I laugh about the idea of ever replacing my eagles.

But I am happy for all of you Stalker fans who might see some life injected back into this mold. Maybe see some new plastics again. As a Wasp fan, I know I'm excited for some tour series Wasps in 2020, and I'm sure it's a similar feeling for you guys.

I stocked up because they were getting hard to find. I love my Z Glo, it's such a dead nuts straight driver. Would be really curious to see how a Big Z Stalker would fly.

I think you should get yourself a brand new Z Stalker. It will have much less lateral movement than your Eagles (unless they're super beat up).

What I'm able to do in the woods with Stalker is unmatched. Especially touch & standstill FH's. I get a lot of 'what was that disc?' in tournament play but nobody seems to want to try one themselves.

It can net you 350 dead straight on a BH & powers down like a mid.

Don't know what your straight fairway is but I think it would be worth getting a Stalker for an audition.

Yep though it is not a neutral straight fairway but rather a mild OS fairway that can handle a headwind well for me up to ~35 mph before the disc is too flippy in a headwind. At that wind speed of more 35 mph the disc I use is a ESP XL as the one I have is not worn in yet but files on the same line just harder dump finish at the end of flight.
