My backhand form is atrocious and my FH is pretty nice, so my max D and disc golf D FH is close to 100 ft farther than my BH. And unfortunately I don't get to play much anymore so I don't see that changing any time soon.

my backhand is pretty decent, while my forehand is pretty lacking..

Been busy with work, but planning to practice the forehand some more. Gotta get rid of that torque..

my FH is in a case, mounted on the front of my grip bag
it has a sign above it, that says "break glass in case of emergency"
in other words, it sucks, and i only FH when i have no other shot

I voted roughly equal because the distance I get from both is about 430. Now, accuracy and confidence is the problem though. I feel far more comfortable throwing BH for distance and I think that I am way more accurate. This could be due to the face that I throw FH using only one finger in the inside of the rim.

I'm a 50/50 player. But my Max FH is 350. But more like 325. My backhand max is 450 but more like 425 on average. So 100ft or so longer.

I just squeek into the 50-100 category. But that's more because of my weak BH - BH max about 325 and FH max about 250.

I have started using FH more for those mid distance right turn approaches. Much more reliable than trying to turn my BH.

I have really concentrated on BH form this year, going from about 275' average to 325' average, and in the process, my FH has suffered. Last year, my FH was deadly to 300', now I can barely get it to 250'. Recently it's really gone in the can. I need to use some of my field time to straighten it out. So I voted BH by 50-100.
