Yeah, I picked Saint, a disc I can throw 300 if I do everything right. My best distance EVER with a mid is a Mako3 out to about 270 or a Leo out a little further but on a downhill. Usually, if I can get a 5/6 speed to 250 I feel like I've stepped on it. I don't have a lot of distance though I have increased it steadily since I started. I try to compensate with accuracy and solid putting but it's all a work in progress. I'm still pretty new and well, old, so, yeah.

I do see that it's only 5 guys so far naming a mid. I just don't trust myself to get it there with accuracy. Again, could just be my own form/weakness.

Same. I can crank an MD3 out to 300' with a good throw, full strength, perfect release, and throwing in an open field, but I'd rather take a fairway and have less effort/more control. Just me. I'm there with you, asromatifoso.

Tee sign: Scale
Listed D: Buzzz if it's before the concrete; TB over.

If windy I'm throwing a Firebird.

I'm guessing the basket is to the left... RHBH C-PD hyzer. It'll go right where I try to throw it, then I'll walk to my disc and find out the basket is somewhere else.
