I think that's a bit of a fallacy. Throwing accurately 350' isn't all that possible unless you're capable of throwing further.

I agree. That's not what I said though.

You could throw 300-320 accurately if you max at 350. That combined with a great approach game, and killer putting will take you pretty far.

pretty far, all the way to the top of advanced (in most areas). i've found that you need to have 400-430' golf D to take it to the next level (along with the approach/putting and head game), which to me is consistently cashing in pro.

Yea, it depends on the area competition, and type of courses played.

Agreed

And agreed.

The key is to be a well rounded driver, so that no matter what course you play, you're not at a disadvantage. Good easy distance really helps with this.

I bought a QJLS off the used rack at my local dg store. Threw it a few times and have now developed an infatuation with it as it's provided some exciting Ace runs!

My newb queustion is : Why don't I see a lot of QJLS/JLS in the marketplace or in online stores? Are they popular, getting snatched up quickly? Did Millennium make a small number of them? Or are they forgotten as new discs emerge?

My Question...
Why do some people get sooo hush hush about dg courses in their towns???
Like if they are a gang and will run people out if they go play there. I mean if I built a badass course I would like all peoplle to come out. Just gets under my skin sometimes... thats all.

Ah - sorry for the crossed posts. I was referring to the fellow who posted the question.

Seemed like a stereotypical troll, "I started playing last week, and I can only throw about 450 feet; is there any hope for me?"

But, it seems, I may have treated him too harshly.
