Drivers-
2 Nukes
3 or 4 Forces (still going to be the main driver)
2 Preds
2 or 3 surge's

Mids-
2 buzzes
2 or 3 zones
1 glide
1 meteor

Putters-
4 classic rocs

(I was hoping the ringer would be like classic rocs, but it was nothing like it)

Every now and then a wasp will jump in the line up at times, but not very often. Generally I'll carry 20 discs.


Man, you're missing the Xpress, the Avenger SS, and the ESP XL... (since you seem to be a Discraft man)

I can do that with all of them, that's the beauty of it. It just becomes even more special when I know it's putting pressure on you!

Nice dye jobs on those :D What are they?


I just tried out the Stalker today...not sure if I am impressed by it or not. It's like a slow TL...good accuracy, and holds it's line, but does not get out there like it should; no glide really.

I don't think it's supposed to be a long disc. Def. a slow control driver

PBR = First Run Glow Buzzz
Jager = Flat Top Z-Buzzz.

Definitely agree. I like the rim (14 mm deep) again, just like the Nuke; gives a good solid feel. It's a great "1-stepper" disc for getting out of trouble/hitting a line perfectly.

Nice, gotta love those buzzz's for dying; they have such a large surface to work with!

I really like the Stalker ...... I use the shit out of it. Like AO said it's not supposed to go far, its definitely a fairway driver.

I use it when I know the shot is calling for a Buzzz but is a tad too long for a Buzz; as in if I throw a Buzzz hard enough to get there the damn thing will get squirrelly on me. Hence the Stalker, same results but less effort.

I can get it to go dead straight putting a little anny on it for 325' or so. I'll have to compare it to my incoming buzzz on Sunday. I haven't thrown a buzzz in too long...I just remember grip locking it every throw when I first started playing.

If you haven’t thrown a Buzzz in awhile this might be why you don’t care for the Stalker. The Stalker is the fairway driver version of the Buzzz.

They are basically the same disc; difference being the obvious, driver vs mid-range, and the amount of torque/power you can put on it and/or need to put on it to get the same flight.

I feel it is a driver version of the buzz. I can put a bit extra snap into and it won't go as squirrelly as the buzz. I threw the stalker for the first time and thought "wow" to myself. Long time since any disc has done that for me, so needless to say there is one in my bag now. I prefer the elite z plastic, as they are a big more overstable.

ok, I'm still iffy on it. Since I have been throwing the buzzz around now too, I get both out there past 325. The stalker just has less glide and more speed, where the buzzz is slower with more glide...both are controllable for sure, but go the same distance; my stalker gets more squirrely than the buzzz, but then again I put some OAT on it to get out there; doesn't like that.
