The Blowflys are consistently longer, probably because I can grip them more driver-like with their narrower rim. The Pure and Anode are probably equally second.

I have more video of the Blowfly, but in the field it all looks the same and not a lot of reference points. FWIW - the Pure and Blowfly in that vid are ~295.

I'm going to try again out at a local course later this week or this weekend.

I had a buddy in the 90's that only played with 2 discs. A blowfly and a blowfly. He would roll his blowfly for his driver!!!! He was pretty good at throwing for throwing blowfly's and all...

How did I miss this thread? For the record, besides carrying the same trusty putter since I started playing, I carry a 3xJK Aviar, and occasionally, a DX Aviar. I'll have to try this in an open field sometime ... I never throw the Blowfly outside short approach range.

I once played a round with a guy that only threw a blowfly and a destroyer. He almost never threw the destroyer. He was amazingly good. Anything under 300' was parked with the blowfly.

These discs were chosen because regular discs would be bouncing, skipping and rolling off the rocks into the river where the blowfly will flop and sit when it hits rocks and of course floats if it does end up in the river.

The 2nd Annual Steady Ed Safari is coming up in 2 weeks and I had never thrown either of the Blowfly or Gumbputt molds. So I grabbed them from someone who played last year just so I wouldn't go into the tournament completely blind on these discs.

I've been driving them with my index finger out on the rim. Pure power grips just make these things fly way too wonky out of my hand. But with a slow step and clean release, I've been getting low and straight flights between 200'-250'. Pleasantly surprised, actually. My best drive was when I was TRYING to see what a sweeping hyzer would do with the Blowfly II and it turned into a high hyzer flip that hit the 300' mark.

Can't putt worth a damn with them, though, lol.

The Blowfly can actually be thrown pretty far. If you give it enough height it will fly. I can get mine over 300 fairly easy.
