TLDR version: 6-11 revs/sec. So time your flight and do the math.

It's interesting that mostly fairway drivers with speeds around 9 were used in the study. Surely high-speed discs like the Boss, Destroyer, Hurricane, Nuke, etc. would fly faster? Cool discussion and research.

Out of the hand, no. They're probably slower if anything. A couple hundred feet later I'm sure they're faster, though.
