I'm curious about what stability issues you're talking about?

Personally I've used arch linux as a daily driver and for development for around 3 years. Despite being rolling release, as long as you update your whole system regularely, it will run smoothly. Main cause for rolling release failure is partial package updating.

Thanks for your answer! Imagine, you need some specific software that is not available for Arch (Manjaro) on the official site. And you found it on AUR, but this package not built or has bugs.
Second example: some software not working right on KDE default theme.
