E* 171g Wraith to 350' BH and FH. It's pretty beat and I touched it just right the other day in practice. Hit 380 on a FH. Have various other Wraiths that aren't quite as long. Toyed with a Champ Shryke and Big Z Thrasher. Don't particularly like wide rimmed drivers and my form needs work. Maybe some day I'll be able to throw them to their potential.

Picked up a new 148g Blizzard Boss for $9 the other day. Threw it 380 BH but I don't think that counts. Not much use for a 148g disc in Okla most of the time.

Champ. If I've ever actually hit 400' on flat ground, it was certainly with a Mamba.

167 2R pinnacle outlaw. Light enough I can throw it high and get a turn and still stable enough where it will flex forward.

My farthest flat ground throw came a few months ago with a Fluid Enforcer, was about 525. Usually I’m throwing max D FH in the 450 range with Apes, Giants, and Phases believe it or not.

On the course right now I’m using Elasto and VIP Giants from 400-460 beucase I don’t have to throw them 100% to get that distance from them.

My new home course has a 575ft tunnel like shot and another at 404, so you can’t get a high flex line in there like I’d do with an Ape or similar.

BH the max is still the VIP or Elasto Kings, I’ve hit 450 a small handful of times, usually 390-425.

I think I could gain more distance if I got my knee fixed, since I tore the MCL/Miniscus two years ago I am less confident planting. With improved form with the top half and better timing I’ve gotten back to good D, but I’m sure I could do better.

So I wonder if it works in reverse. If I claim to throw 325' regularly, with 350' my best... Maybe I really am throwing 450'????

Max distance with a flippy Dx Destroyer, 120-125m (i guess 400'). Consistent max distance 320-350 with Pro Valkyrie and Fuzion Escape.

I was with a guy a few years ago who claimed to throw 600ft, and on a long but not crazy hole he was amazed at my 400 ft shot, saying no it had to be 650+.

I told him nah man, it was 390-410 and the hole is only 425, so why would anyone want to overthrow by that much?

His main driver was a G* Dominator though so maybe he was actually crazy.
