Apparently.
In the space of a day he crushed the previous record by 200+ft.
I can't even think of another barrier in sports so completely blown out of the water.
So, do we need to rename this thread the 1200ft barrier? lol.

Rename the thread "Substantial wind assist knows no barriers".

Here's the deal, if somebody broke the 1000ft barrier in calm wind conditions, all the chatter would be: "Imagine if it were 60mph winds!"


This is an amazing feet, no matter the wind speed.

Yes, but how far can he pee? Anything less than 300 feet, into the wind, makes him a rank Am.

I would imagine throwing in 50-60mph tail winds would be very difficult for most people since their release speeds are at around that speed which leaves a net velocity of nearly 0 for the disc. Best hope would be to put it up and nose down to get the sail effect.
