Two New Discraft Discs

Postby Working Stiff on Tue Jun 09, 2009 5:15 pm

There is a message floating around about new Discraft discs:
Two golf discs to debut at US Am Championships: Stalker is an easy-to-control fairway driver that flies like a Buzzz, only farther. Ringer is a low-profile, sweetly overstable putter. Woo hoo!!!
Far be it for me to miss the opportunity to spread a disc golf rumor. :P

Bryan, will you try to pick up an extra pair of these discs for me, I would greatly appreciate it, and I hope that you win this, so you can get to the USDGC and beat NIKKO :mrgreen: THAT would be excellent, to say the least!

Thanks!

Sure thing, I have to watch my kids all day today, but I could possibly meet up with you later today, or Thursday...I will meet up with you bright and early if you want, or that afternoon even, maybe try to get a round in somewhere if you have time. I know you have to travel far, so just give me a buzz when you get the chance. 314 302 1949

Talk to you soon.

I have not seen one, but I'm sure it's not. It has a 1.6 cm rim, so I'm guessing it is going to feel like a fairway driver. The Buzzz rim is 1.2 cm.

Discraft has a tendency to say all their new divers "fly like a Buzzz, only farther." They say it all the time. Innova is supposed to come out with a new fairway driver this summer. I bet they say it "flies like a Roc, only farther." It's just PR bluster.

Hey, I'll revive this long dead topic for a minute to talk about the Stalker... since it looks like this topic died before anyone ever really got to throw and review one.

The way I see it, the Stalker's profile is shaped like an Avenger SS, but shorter from edge to lip and with a bead (like a Wizard).

In my experience, it's flight characteristics are right between an Avenger SS and a Buzzz. It flies nice and straight off the hand and holds the line you put it on very well. It flies a little faster, has a little less glide... with just a bit more last minute turn and fade than a Buzzz.

For me, it is becoming one of my favorite discs, especially as a disc to use when recovering from a bad drive and makes a perfect addition to my bag in between my Buzzz and Teebird. Well worth buying.
