The CryZtal sold out o few days ago, i tryed to buy two awhile back but Discraft shipping cost to Sweden are insane. . 2-3x the cost that Infinite or OTB disc charges

Discraft take $55 in shipping for two discs to Sweden!! The fun part is that the biggest Swedish discstore takes 7,90euro to ship two dics world wide

I never understood why it cost 2-3 times more to ship disc from the US to Sweden than it cost to ship from Sweden to the US

The most important part of that whole article is this section:
International postage rates for incoming packages are set by a U.N. agency called the United Postal Union (UPU). This is a body that was established in 1874 -- subsequently being absorbed into the U.N. -- that is currently made up of 192 countries which meets every four years to revise its policy and set new terminal fees, with each country getting one vote a piece. While the voting system of the UPU is egalitarian, the shipping rates that it sets are not. According to Nancy Sparks of FedEx Express (via eCommerceBytes.com), the rate structure of the UPU is a system where the “haves pay the have-nots.” Essentially, countries that it deems to be poorer or less developed pay less for shipping to countries that are categorized as being richer. So someone shipping from, say, China, will pay significantly less to ship to a country like the U.S. than an American shipper will pay to send that same package to China.

This is also changing soon.

So I got (and probably paid too much for, but it was from Hailey herself) one of Hailey King's new TS Stalkers. Disclaimer: I only got a pair of throws with It and they were both nose up hyzer shots, that both went about 320', I was in a hurry, will write up a better review tomorrow. It is very similar to my workhorse Stalkers in flight, as it will hold a hyzer line and still fly decently far. The plastic feels amazing, but not quite as a amazing as my FR PP ESP, nice firm stuff, but it's kinda slick.

I've got a MDGO 2020 Glow ESP Stalker & it's OS. Like a new Teebird.

Every Z (Regular or Glow) I've had has flown true to what I've known Stalkers to be.

Anyone else noticed this about the ESP'S?

I don't have any Glow ESPs (one of like 2 variations I don't have with another being the Cryztal Sparkle), but my OG Ti and HK TS seem to be close to that.

On another note, what is my best bet for an US Stalker? My beaten Z isn't US enough apparently.

I tossed stalkers back in the bag this weekend. 1 cryztal and 1 PP ESP, both are pretty fresh. I tend to forget how nice these are to throw. The cryztal is like a new champ teebird. The ESP is a little straighter overall but still stable with some fade.

Kind of in the same boat as ILUVSMGS18, would love a stalker that turns more (that doesn't come in D plastic). I feel like a lighter Z would do the trick. I'd have to work out some overlap with the PL squall at that point though. Right now I'm using a flippy pipeline for that slot.

I've been throwing undertakers very poorly lately. Since I use them under 350', moving to a stalker would probably be helpful.

I have a couple beat-up Z's that fill that slot for me. Both were PIAS finds, already pretty well used. But they aren't truly "flippy."

They'll hold a turn all the way to the ground, if you start them that way. Released at 80% power with hyzer, they are magical laser-straight woods discs. Released flat, they will drift right and still hook up at the end. They don't flip hard enough to use as a roller disc, for example. You would really have to thrash one to get it truly understable.
