I think FD, hopefully get 300+ before it hits something although it'd probably take a ton of tries. So hard to visualize throwing down a 12' pipe vs. a 12' square hallway, I bet it's way harder than I imagine. For a FH I'd probably go PD...a disc I don't even bag.

How about this: Innova buys some sort of a tumber and fills it with crushed rocks. Then throws Rocs into it, and gives it a spin for a bit. They could sell Rocs that are beat in to various degrees - for a cost.

Gee, 72 degrees F, huh?

If it were 80 degrees, then I would say a 145 ish gm Star Destroyer, but everyone knows that 72 degrees is just a bit too chilly for Destroyer max distance.


So, I'll go with a Kastaplast K1 Glow Falk. That way, at I can see it.

Assuming I got multiple throws - I would start off with a Champion Sidewinder. Once I got a decent throw with that I would change to a Pro Wraith. Hyzer flips FTW.

Or if could only throw one disc I would grab a lighter weight Star Teebird.

I would bet that the longest disc would be a driver, too hard to really good distance on a putter or mid with only 12' of ceiling. If I got a few throws I am pretty sure I could clear 300' of distance. If everything went right I could even see getting something out to 350'. After that I don't know if I could keep the disc low and straight enough. It wouldn't surprise me to people go past 400'.

A beat Roc, off the rack in my basement workshop.

(Otherwise, an X-Comet.)
