I can get it pin high from just outside the circle with pretty amazing consistency.

I chose 350-399’. And yes, that is currently internet distance.

I’ve been throwing from a standstill for the last 8 months. I hurt my knee once at the end of 2018 and again early in 2019. So no run up or even x-step.

I used to be able to throw 350’ on a strong throw and maybe up to about 370’ at my absolute best. Now I’m glad to have worked back up to right at 300’ or so.... laser measured.

I have seen 500’ a couple times.... with tremendous throws for me and ridiculous elevation to help!

You poll is missing a few options IMO - starting at 350' is distanceist' and shows your inability to understand how diversity and inclusion are more important. Add to that - you do not grasp how the patriarchy and institutionally discriminatory structures have kept many of us from reaching your colonialist favored distances.

WRONG, don't you know that PP claims to throw 450'?? And yet somehow she maxes out at 980 rating which is what AM1 players are ranked?? Methinks the ladies can lie about their distance just as well as the boys...

I once had a "big arm" and was throwing 500-525' with a lack in consistency, but ended up having rotator cuff surgery and lost 150' in distance. My best friend thought I was lying when I went to visit and he could easily drive 50-75' past me. I now do not worry about the big drives as 400' with consistency creates lower average scores for me. It is funny to read internet trolls talk about throwing 500' with ease though as it is not easy to do whatsoever.

Do not bother me with stats and facts - I just wanted to see what posting some SJW nonsense feels like - to string a bunch of words together that basically say nothing.

I wanted to wear the "Snowflake" outfit for a moment. - do not ruin it for me.

Also, did you take my post seriously?
