If there were no distance drivers...

...would your game suffer?

I never throw any, so I'd be set.

How 'bout you?

wouldn't bother me at all. I'm mostly throwing Buzzz's and Meteors right now.

Wouldn't mess with me. I am set, but it would make it easier to catch the guys in league throwing 450'-500' with Giants and Nukes. My short game is all I really focus on anyways.

Compared to my current scores, yes they would suffer a bit, but not too much. But compared to others, I think I would gain advantage over most local players, because I definitely use my slow stuff more than most of them.

Nah, only wraiths in bag, easily covered with teebirds. Some 15-30 ft. difference in distance, no big deal.

But teebirds were "ultra long distance drivers" in some point, right?

i wouldn't be OB all the time!! no i think my game would suffer a little i like to throw longer holes and the newer super speed discs do help you get there. sometimes! i would ,sadly, probably improve by learning my slower discs better and mastering rollers.

Not really. I throw Trespasses and Bolts occasionally, but the only distance driver I throw regularly is the PD. Would the PD make the cut? I know it is labeled a power driver, but I personally don't think it is much more faster then speed 9 fairway drivers.

It would barely effect me, pretty much the only time distance drivers actually help me pick up strokes is when I sidearm a destroyer. I would probably do comparatively well compared to most people after the loss of distance drivers.

I think the PD is considered more of a longer fairway.
