Let me know if you find out; I couldn't figure out the difference when they were both in production.

The Talon for whatever reason was a big discs with thumber/tomahawk/overhand/whatever-else-you-want-to-call-not-throwing-backhand players I knew, much bigger than the Reaper. Most of the people I knew who threw Reapers naturally moved on the Predators and didn't throw a hissy fit when the Reaper went OOP. The thumber guys went berserk when the Talon went OOP. This is all I know about too-fast-and-beefy-for-me '00's Discraft drivers.

I finally got off post-op restrictions and threw today; that Stratus she got is solid. If they can make ESP Stratus like this, why don't they?

You don't like solid black PDGA discs? Who'd have thought

Seriously though maybe they just wanted to rebrand the Archer for younger players that are "too cool for outdated old discs" perhaps?

The Stratus and Archer are quite a bit different. Archer has a much better feel, wider comfy rim. Stratus is probably good for kids or people with small hands. Similar flights maybe. I did have one of those Black PDGA Statuses too.

The Reaper for me was a nice PD type driver in X and like a Firebird lite in Z, good disc and better feeing than the Predator but basically the same flight.

Talon to me was like a Banshee OS, just as overstable as an FAF Firebird but not as long or fast.

I got the Z Glow Talon from the recent ledge stone run and it’s fantastic. Really nicely OS and I have to throw the hell out of it to get 350+.

My PDGA disc was a DX Gazelle. No black Stratus for me.

So my giveaway for there being an ESP Cyclone for me on Father's Day is if an ESP Stratus turns up in her bag in the next week or so.

Grabbed a Cryztal Sting in hopes of having one a touch more stable than a TI.

If you're curious about them, save your cash, they have the glide of a used brake rotor.
