Question Discraft Stalker

Awright, I did the search and after @ 30 minutes of reading thru numerous threads, I still want to know...what disc that Innova produces is most like a Stalker?
BTW, it's in Z plastic, weighs in at 167 g (digitally scaled), and initial field testing is very promising. I feel like it compares to a Leopard, but wanted to know from you Discraft throwers what you think.
Thanks in advance!

Tried Stalkers in Glow, Z and ESP (white bar stamp) and none of them flew like any Leopard I have thrown. Thats actually an insult to the Leopards if you ask me.

To me it flew like a longer, faster Buzz but with the glide of a turd. Or maybe a short TL (with the glide of a turd)

EDIT: I am clearly biased and I will only be more pissed off when the lovers post all their love and I try one yet again only for disastrous disappointment, making me hate it more.

I have a Buzzz in Z plastic and it's okay...the MVP Axis has pretty much taken over most of my mid shots.

Oh, and as far as turds, you must be getting too much fiber, folks tell me I can sling s&%t for a mile...

I agree w/ the TL statement.

I did not mean to insult the Leopard, when I go home, I'll take it out of the bag and gently reassure it

Innova produces the Millennium JLS which is very similar except its faster and it has glide.

lol I am just a hater when it comes to the Stalker. There are a ton of people who love them, or at least there used to be. Used to be that a thread on the Stalker like this would quickly fill up with all the love that would make me try it 3 times. 2 of which after I already didn't like it.

I love the stalker, and get a ton of glide out of it. I only throw Cryztal ones that are dome, so that might have something to do with it. DOn't know what to compare it to. Something that goes straight!

I recently carried the Stalker again for a little while. The shots that I used it for it was overlapped variously and replaced by a PPD, QJLS and DX TeeBird. All of them superior to the Stalker.

The one thing I found the Stalker good at was as a ranging disc on lines slightly longer and maybe a bit lower than a Buzzz.

Other than what Mike C said, I don't know of anything from Innova that flies like the Stalker. It's exactly as it's been described so far, a long, straight Buzzz with limited glide.

The Stalker is kind of a fairway driver-midrange hybrid. I've never seen a disc from another company quite like it.
