forehand dominant pros

Postby El Guapo » Wed Jan 31, 2007 6:44 pm

Anyone know of any forehand dominant pros and what dg distances they will hit with a forehand? I think I read Redfield and Bennett were FH dominant, but I haven't seen any numbers on them.

Geoff Bennet and Mike Hofmann come to mind immediately. I'm not sure on distance. I've heard Geoff is upper 400s, possible 500s. Hofmann is primarily sidearm, but I think he throws backhand for distance.

mark ellis and nate sexton come to mind.

517' is the sidearm distance record.

according to Bennett's profile on the discraft site, "475 to 615" with his pulse.

When was that 517' mark set Blake? Maybe some tournaments that run distance comps should have sidearm and backhand divisions so we can start seeing what a good sidearm is capable of.

also Blake do you know what disc it was with? I throw forehand quite a bit, but never for distance.

I think it was Scott Stokely with an X2.
