Default Average distance variance between putter, mid, fairway and distance driver.

What is your rough average difference in throws between putter, mid, fairway and dd? A video a saw seemed to indicate about a 100' total gain in distance from putter to distance driver from ~350' to ~450'. I think mids were ~380' and fairway about ~420'. This about right for most of you, a 100' span?

Yah..I'd have to say my distance span is typically 100ft from putter to driver. Probably a little more if I'm going for max d, etc.

Yeah about 100' for me, about 10% between each disc class.

I think for shorter throwers it will be far less than 100' and for very long throwers it could be quite different depending on if they can smash on putters, or they rely on discing up a lot. The numbers you listed sound reasonable for an open level player.

Putters- 200'
Mids: 315-330'
Fairways: 350-400ish'
DD: 375-450'

Longest air shot, on flat ground, 520' esp crank. Did it! Haven't been able to do it again, but I did it. :/

I generally don't throw distance drivers, but there's about 150' between my putter and fairway driver. I just won't tell you how far I throw my putter....

I'll be brave and say that I can throw my putter only 150', my MR/FD around 175'

Hey, I started playing seriously only 6 months ago! I've been tweaking my form, trying to reduce rounding and I notice that my discs usually fly like they're on a frozen rope about 4 feet off the ground. I'm sure my release angle sucks.
