Yep.. I've seen comments from pros that they rarely throw max d in a typical tournament. However, I think at 475+ they're putting a bit of stank on it. I hope everyone gets a chance at a close...

I tend to agree. There are certainly baseline mechanics needed to throw a disc even 200ft. I think most people coming from the frisbee world have a hard time with the concept of arm speed because...

Groovy question, I've pondered this in the past myself. I've seen 12 year old kids throw 300, I've seen pros approaching 400lbs (Jamie Mosier *) throw 400+, my son threw a disc 300ft the first time...

I think you're mindset should be more like "what disc can I throw straight, level, low that also gives me good distance?". If that's a putter or mid, that's fine for now. Only move up to a higher...

Fwiw...it's generally accepted that 1 mph of arm speed = 7 feet of distance. But release angle, disc weight, stability, wind, etc, has alot to do with maximum distance a disc can fly.

Expect a flood of responses. But I would suggest just learning to throw a putter straight, level, about 6ft high. With distance goals of 100,150,200,250+.
