I've hit 470 reasonably straight and average closer to 440 in ideal conditions and 400 when I'm not quite warmed up.

Most of the discs you mentioned are still essentially utility overstable for me - are you going full flex max d? Not something I've really used much so I am curious to see what kind of distance you can manage and how (if?) the discs differentiate much.
I throw them like this https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ejJ59FMkeZ0

Gibson idea was good, throw the best selling disc from each brand. .

But he should have thrown them 3-5 times, and marked the most representative throw. . .then taken a Drone and snap a pic from above so we can see where all the discs ended up.. .Gibsons "this landed here, that one over there" did not say anything

I wish I had the budget to essentially do a more in depth version of what he did, but I’m thinking of buying 3 discs at most in addition to what I have.

I’ve placed my order and with some help of the DGCR Crew on selection and procurement have narrowed it down to these discs;

Innova; Destroyer
Ape

Discraft; Force
Zeus

Discmania; PD2

DD; Enforcer

Lat64; Stiletto

Westside; Warhorse
Giant

MVP; Energy

Prodigy; X1

Daredevil; Gray Jay

Yikun; Da’E

Gateway; Spirit

So what I’m thinking is doing these head to head maybe in a series of short videos so we can see several throws from each one. So I need help seeding these somehow.

If you guys have the patience could you please rank these 1-14 so that I can create the initial bracket?
