I’ve got a 120 Yikun dog disc that I practice touch shots with, can finesse it maybe 250 FH. If it’s anything at all in that class of disc that would take some serious snap.
It is a mold made by Wham-O/DTW and is slow deep catch disc, almost the same mold as a Wham-O regular mold would be now from Discovering The World site.

It was fun watching Emerson. He has a nice forehand. He is so balanced and controlled backhand, but when he flicks, he throws his whole body into it and has to catch himself.

You dont need crazy distance, just shy of 400 with accuracy does the trick. Sexton can prolly only get around 400 accurately.

Par save just released coverage of the Cedar Creek Open and Sheldon is featured on a couple rounds. Unreal sidearm. The last hole of the final 9 round he throws a destroyer 500+ on a hyzer

700ft fh? hmm.. at first I wasn't buying it, then the video of Cedar Creek was mentioned (hole #9) and then I watched him fh 500+ on a hyzer. wow.. not sure a full flex flight could add another 180-200ft, but it would be cool to see what he is capable of.
