uh, if we are do internet feet: then I have been throwing 400-450' regularly.
if we are doing reality, my average flat level ground throw is about 275-345 depending on wind and how much power I try to put behind the disc, max I believe was at around 350' but internet max I think I would put it at around 487' to make it believable.

Good choice of words.

Disc golfers have lots of experience with exaggeration. They also don't seem to know the definition of "average".

I havent had a big jump in distance lately like most people have had, more like a steady climb over the past few years. I'd say gaining 50-75 feet a year but I've finally ended up toying with the '500 mark, but havent been able to hit it yet. so i guess i didnt answer your question because i am probably not your average dgcr member. However you can all putt better than me probably lol...

Me? Average drive is 275ish feet, no exaggeration.
That's about where i am as well.

at my home couse, I took a gps distance app and found that most holes were 50-100' off of the listed fee at the tee. is there a certain way you are suppose to measure feet? because hole 1 the backside course I believe says something like 265' and its 300' on gps, and its always within five feet on gps as I have measured multiple times to guage the accuracy. anyone care to enlighten us here?

I don't know, I'm still waiting for one of my drives to land so I can measure it.
