you answered your own question here. i assume intermediate/advanced guys generally have 300+ power already, the weaknesses they have are generally in the shots they are able to throw, consistency, and touch/finesse.
if people worked their way up to discs via the tiers i recommend in the disc selection article on the main site, this is less of a problem.
most slower drivers will mask technique flaws much less, especially in terms of their distance. to throw a cheetah 400', you need a clean release, lots of height, and good nose down. most people simply write off a disc like that since it doesn't have the capacity to fly 400' 10' high off the ground in favor of faster discs. throwing a disc like a gazelle or cyclone a consistent 360' takes a lot better form than throwing a flash or orc an occasional 400'.
