I'm not sure it's relevant. We spend hours talking about distance, proper technique and what it means, but this is a game of inches. I suspect that a player who can throw his teebird on a rope will beat a player who can throw his Boss a mile, but never less than fifty feet from the basket, every day.

The KC vs PM debate is less complex than folks think, IMO. Other than the forehand, I see them matching up nicely, even with the plastic being different. Accuracy counts. The only disc I see as mattering significantly is the Thunderbird, or an equivalent. Throwing 500 feet only matters in a big fairway. Long fairways in the woods, and short fairways in the woods, take the same types of discs, today and then. So Paul maybe has an advantage on big holes (you know, the hyzer holes everyone hates) but in the woods it's skill set vs skill set.
