Nice! But I would be wary of jumping too quick into faster discs/hyzer flipping just yet.

Every beginner (including myself when I first began) thinks that they aren't getting enough distance on flippy drivers because their arms are too fast for them, but 95% of the time the disc is flipping over too soon due to off-axis torque from throwing mechanics that need to worked out. I guarantee that discs flipping over for you at 300' is due to the same issue.

Simon and Eagle have thrown normal putters over 400' and if anyone has the arm speed to turn over a non torque resistant putter, it's those guys.
