350-360 a few times with a 171 Star Roadrunner. Hiestand #5 and #16

There is that one I threw in the Crawfish River in Waterloo a few weeks ago. The rapids were running and that disc could still be moving. Crawfish feeds the Rock River into Lake Koshogong. 35 miles or so. Which would top that 720' toss by 34 and 3/4 miles. This could lead to some other Wisconsin Style Paul Bunyon Disc stories. On average I throw 275-290.

Best one I can remember is something like 410-415ish on #6 at Tom Bass Regional Park - Wilmont with a 174 Star XCal X-out into a headwind. Was in a sanctioned tourney so I couldn't use the laser to measure it.

Is this poll asking for longest throw ever, longest throw "pure D on demand", or longest throw that you can bank on on a real course where accuracy is required???

Mine vary a bunch - 420' longest ever (2-3 tinmes - must have got my form right by accident), 340' on command, 290-300' accurately. I voted 300-350'.

310 feet (I may have a longer throw, but this is the only one I've been able to measure accurately). I threw a forearm helix with a 175 Star Destroyer and it dove 1 foot in front of the basket and skipped behind.

Holy crap. So... bascially I have to have 2 of my longest drive ever combined to match your one throw. Crap...

Of course, how many 720' holes are there compared to 300' holes. (I just have to keep giving myself this pep talk so I can sleep at night. )

I threw a 580' roller at Riverview in Bowling Green. It is a course on a ball golf course and I threw my newish 175 boss almost vertically. Must've been a good wind or something (combined with the flat and perfectly manicured fairway) because it just kept rolling forever (and straight). I was able to measure it because our tee was right by the regular golf tee and my disc was close to one of the distance markers in the fairway for that hole.

I had a 30' putt for a 3 at hole 12 at players day at USDGC. I was past the hole and it is 901'. I missed the putt. I played roller off the tee and roller to get to the pin. It was with the OB ropes and everything on spectator day. Gotta use those manicured fairways there too...

Rollers aside I don't think I've ever cleared 500 in the air without a little downhill help. I can throw my Echo Xcal 450ish if I get everything.
