I would say that is a pretty normal spread on the distances. From talking to other players and from my own experience, I have found that there is about a 10-15% gap in distance from Putters to Midranges to Fairway Drivers and to Distance Drivers. Using a 12.5% gap bewteen each and your max Putter distance of 300', you should see the following:

Midrange - Theoretical: 338'
Midrange - Actual: 340' (Buzzz)
Fairway Driver - Theoretical: 380'
Fairway Driver - Actual: 375' (Gazelle)
Distance Driver - Theoretical: 427'
Distance Driver - Actual: 420' (Archon)

Looks pretty much like what you should expect based on your Putter D.

Looks about the same for you too....

Midrange - Theoretical: 281'
Fairway Driver - Theoretical: 316'
Distance Driver - Theoretical: 356'
Distance Driver - Actual: 360'

I agree with Flash, its not that far off expectation. More snap will help get everything further and also gets more nose down.

Your distance gaps are normal. You need to work on grip strength and timing to throw discs farther. Grip slips kill your distance, and pulling early causes grip issues and kills snap.

Yeah, it looks good to me. Seems u got all the distances covered. Also if u can get controlled 400ft, thats all u need. Time to work on consistancy and putting.

Victor said it best. The spread is normal for someone not even half-hitting. I'm not being a dick, but look at kachtz, you can clear 400' with a putter all day if you know how to hit. The spread will only change when you learn to half-hit, or hit it. Till then you're still like everyone else playing the Fast-disc-for-distance game.

Nose angles, apply way more than people realize, they are what determine your max distance nearly as much as snap. You can have all the snap, but if your nose angles suck, you can't hit an apex so **** won't fly. The more snap you have, with the proper nose angle allows you to raise your flight apex. This manipulation of snap, nose angle, apex and line are what generates distance. There are so many people than don't understand this even after being force fed this info. It's there, promise.

Triple corks / 1620's in Snowboarding, 634 foot baseball homer run, 800+ feet disc golf throw, Double backflip on a snowmobile, 515yard drive in golf, ANYTHING is possible just keep trying and tweaking and do what you do. the honest answer in my humble opinion is that only you can help your throw, anyone else from this point forward is just going to screw with your head, you can throw 400feet so now work on snap and things, i wouldn't be so crazy about this whole nose angle thing just rip harder and get your timing and grip down better. perfection is not possible for anyone, never heard of a -36 round on an 18 hole course) round so just keep trying and more importantly having fun.
