^This. I can throw my Wizards 300 ft., but I would not throw my wizard on that hole.

On the internet I'd throw a putter about 37% power for my 45' come-backer for a par 2.

In a real life I'd throw a roadrunner.

Dude I'm throwing my ESP Comet all Day long for this hole. It would go straight down the middle with a very small fade at the end.

Seeing as how I throw primarily RHFH, Discraft Zombee, hyzer with some power to turn it over. Or a Buzzz, hyzer with power.

I throw a star Tbird super straight! Then I got a beat in star teebird kinda flippy. Champ Valk is a great in between disc. Also I throw a champion leopard big S or hyzer flip. I love my fairway drivers!!

Under 350' I throw mids or a putter. I would throw a Roc3 at this...Maybe even a Pa1 depending on how it looks on the teepad.

For you though, if you don't quite have the distance yet, your Escape should be PERFECT for that shot!

I'm looking for straight and consistent. Here is what I tested out today; Champ Eagle, Opto Saint, F2, Escape, Vip Stag, and Star Valk. I've uploaded a pic of the shots i'm looking to make with these disc. It's a 310 foot drive with the pin slightly back to the left. The line is not to tight but you have to make a decent shot to get it there.
When it comes to slightly stable to slightly understable discs, I have a bit more side to side and wing angle accuracy with faster discs. If I have the headroom, I'll throw higher and slightly less stable (or wing up) to reduce the distance a faster disc might go so as to not blow by the basket.

It looks like a beat, star lepoard thown on the level and just skirting under the canopy would S-turn and land soft enough under the basket. Even if you ran it for an ace and kissed the chains, you'd have less than a 15' putt.

Looks like a hole that many discs would work great one. Depending on ones power Id choose anything from a Buzzz, Roc or Axis to a teebird, eagle, volt, zombee. If the person is LHBH then Leopard, River, or Buzzz all day.
