Ok, I went to the course and played a full round with the Flow and I am in love. I nabbed to what has to be my farthest flat land drive to date. If the posted distance is right 425 (496 here on dgcr, i don't think its right though), then I drove 390'. That is by far my longest drive. To top it all off, I nailed a 53' putt for the birdie( I was a bit off to the right.)

This was just one of the most beautiful drives I have seen thrown by myself. It just kept going. I am going to go with the sign distance of 425', but it would be nice to think dgcr is right and it was a 496 hole, meaning I threw 461'. (yeah right)


I hate hyping up a new disc...but damn, that disc got some legs.

Hole 6 @ Lions Park in Shakopee, Mn. That fairway is littered with young trees so if you throw and normal height you're screwed. I popped up a sky anny and it just took off. I know that for some people 390' isn't that much, but for me it was amazing. I've never birdied a 425' flat land hole before. It was a great feeling.

Google earth says it's 480 to the road from the teepad so I'd say the 425 is prolly accurate. I can't make out the basket on google earth but if it's roughly as far south as the hole 7 tee (as shown on linked map) it is right around 425-430

Here's a screen capture from google earth:

I guess 425' is correct, because that is where the basket is. Thank you for measuring that for me.

Gotta Go has some high 160's when I was there yesterday. You can always call them to find out what they have.
