I can hit 500 but it's not often and not something I can just bust out. I'm still working on learning how to get the huge distance lines. I wish I knew somebody who knew more about that to show me.
Yeah, I'll have to give that a try sometime soon.

WITH 400-450ft ACCURATE DISTANCE U CAN BIRDIE ALMOST EVERY HOLE , ON EVERY COURSE, IN THE U.S.

I throw 400ft and i will tell u that distance is almost never the reason why i shoot good or bad. C'mon ppl! U havnt figured this stuff out yet.
Good to hear!!

Discing down never hurts. Also, focusing on your reach back will only yield marginal distance gains. Weight transfer and making sure you're properly hitting is where you will see the biggest gains.
This is true, I should focus more on that.

I saw GG rip a HUGE drive at the DGLO... I'm talking like maybe almost 600, it was a little downhill but still this thing went FAR.

Sounds like my questions have been answered! I understand that there is more to the game than distance, but I'd simply like to be able to throw 400-450 more consistently and accurately and I feel that if I can increase my power further, that it will allow me to more easily hit the 400-450 and do it more accurately.

With my current power, I have been able to make a lot of shots with putters and Mids where I never used to be able to. Thanks for the help everyone. I'll let you know when I start breaking past 500

An audible grunt during the throw makes the disc go farther. IDK for sure, but I'm told the extra distance increases exponentially in proportion to increased silliness of the grunt.

Do you see anything good in this story?

But you understand why it came to mind, right?

You like bestiality?

Well first off there are a lot of pros that cannot throw 500 feet but it also turns out that most of the people that can are pros. But I know for myself when Im throwing for distance I use gold lines, so I will throw a destroyer flat and hard, let it flip a little then let it fade back. Before I messed my knee up I could hit 500 no problem on this type of line now I only get about 450. But when I was hitting the 550-590 mark I was throwing these on distance lines.

It's basically a lower, tighter line. Most pure distance throws take up massive space and can't really be done on the course.

I was wondering where you were getting Destroyers in Goldline Plastic.
