If i throw 560 Avery will throw 570 or 580 same with Matt and Big Jerm....but GG will throw 50-100 ft father then mine every time! Ive seen GG throw 30ft past a 650ft hole! its seriously just unreal!!!


Did you follow the link and read what it says? No doubt that the guys you listed bomb. But Chris Max Voigt has thrown over650 in a distance comp every single time the last nine years, and afaik he probably only does one distance comp every year.

Yes, you're talking pure distance there. OSW was talking about on the course distance.

Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

When I saw him start the 360 I was thinking 'he is spinning the wrong way.' Then he threw it forehand

You guys all know I'm on the Wiggins Jr. train,

I think he's probably one of the top 4 most consistent big arms in the PDGA. Not only in terms of max distance, but in terms of using his distance in golf. On the golf course, shots that even big arms use drivers on, he throws rocs. 300 to 340, given the line and height requirements he's going to throw a putter. His distance helps him become a better player because he uses his form to power mids and putters to lessen skips and have pin point accuracy at those distances. Also, when safe plays are needed, he can hyzer bomb pretty much any hole within 450. And we're talking huuuuuge hyzers that don't skip lol.

Getting a chance to kinda learn from him the past few years has proved the most valuable key to me being a better player.

I've seen Christian Sandstrom throw (escorted his group at the Worlds mixed doubles event at Pinto Lake for a while), and I have to say I've never seen as much raw force on a disc as that guy is able to produce. Extremely athletic. He also has a killer 360 that gives him an edge up on other distance throwers. Avery is obviously up there, and can compete with the best on any given day.

But I'd say give GG a couple more years (he's still just a kid) and he might jump to the very top. He has a lot of room to grow, so watch out!

I haven't thrown one yet so i just guess. A 360 adds more power. Ville Piippo said it is difficult to get enough height for max D competition FH. So if you did a weight back release high up in the air, you can offset lost power from the lack of proper weight shift with the 360 to a degree and get the disc high up. That could work for escape shots as well if you need to throw over obstacles. Risky proposition, but if there's no other way and you are trailing with too few holes left to play and are ahead of the people behind you...

I have seen Philo Braithwate play on several occasions, and it looks like he is putting the disc way out there without hardly any visible effort. Has anyone seen him actually try and bust one out there for long distance? I am curious to know how far this dude could actually throw if he really came out of it his shoes on one.

I haven't watched Philo throw D. I recall the first time I played with him he threw an Orc 100' farther than my Wraith tho.
