Your undertaker is going to overlap heavily with the stalker.

So you're saying the Comet + Wasp combo covers your midrange needs ...hence you really don't reach for the Buzzz often.

So, you want to replace it with a faster/longer Buzzz?

The only way you'll ever know is if you try.

Sounds like the Stalker would be a really good addition to your bag. You don't throw a ton of molds so I wouldn't hesitate to work it into your game. It's my most used driver.
What pros use the Stalker besides Austin Turner? I always got the feeling no one used it and it would go OOP too.

I always thought the Avenger would be there, then Undertaker came along. Not that I use them, I was just think about making an all Discraft Bag. The Undertaker is closer to what I wanted with a Valkyrie anyhow, more the speed of that then an Archon.

Recently revisiting the Z Stalker after not having thrown it since I first started playing; what a great disc. Love it for gentle hyzers and dead straight shots in the woods.

Here's a good good example of why I love this disc. 305' shot with a small gap 3/4 down the fairway. Stalker went on a laser beam 10' off the ground. I heard it hit the wood on the bridge quite loudly, I probably could have slid up to the basket had there been no bridge or stream.

Hailey King was throwing the stalker a lot at the 2018 US Women's Championships, and it was in her ITB that underground interviews did.

Additionally, scrolling through their new team page it's certainly represented well, if notably more in the women's bags than the men's.

Would love to see the Stalker get some shine from the new team. Such an incredible mold.

100% agreed. I never understood why this didn't become an instant classic.
But now we have the Undertaker which is as good or better, so I don't see the Stalker going anywhere.

Are the Undertaker and Stalker really very similar? I've never thrown an Undertaker, but it's a 20mm rim versus the Stalker's 16mm rim. They don't seem comparable on paper- the Mantis seems closer but still too fast. To me the appeal of the Stalker is that it's a tweener midrange-driver. Slightly longer than a mid, with the beaded feel.

Isn't the Undertaker like a PD/Thunderbird (or maybe closer to a Viking/CD2)? Are you guys thinking about the Tracker instead of the Stalker?
