How long did it take you to throw far?
 
I'm wondering what the timeline and gaining distance is for your average players. Use your best/longest drives.

100 ft - 1 week
200 ft - 2 week
250 - 1 month
300 - 6-7 months

Presently at 8 months - 350 max once in a blue moon. I average about 300-320 with my D4 or Z Avenger.

I work on my snap drills and field practice and am wondering is distance something that grows at a steady pace or is it something that you got right away. Or maybe it was something that clicked one day and boom you jumped from 300 to 400. For me it seems to be a steady increase with a lot of 2 steps forward, 1 step back.

100' 20 hours
250' another 12 hours
350' another 30 hours
400' another 100 hours

That's not including time playing rounds; I'm not sure how accurate those numbers are.

You guys can't throw 100'? Gee, I suck and can do that. :|

Wait a minute Dan, in one post you say your throwing over 400'. Yet two posts later you say you can't throw far? What do you consider far? I'd be ecstatic with 400' since I'm stuck at 300'.

its taken me 3-4 months of playing and field practice to get to where i am at. my farthest throw at a park has been 430' with a tern 175g. i am sure i can get a little father but hell the local course i play i started throwing a mid/ putter on 90% of the holes.

7+ years and still working on it.

I'll let you know.

Some of us just aren't born to throw far. Unfortunately for us, disc golf doesn't have a "failtard" position.
