On flat ground not wind aided?

If so that's excellent! I play a fair amount of mini here in Lancaster as we have four permanent courses. I throw farther than most mini regulars and it's rare for me to crack 220' on level ground. I once birdied a 292' uphill hole with a mini but it was a 90 foot "putt".

flat ground yes, hard to say about wind as they get tossed around bad.

when i hit that they usually are hyzer flips that apex at around 25-30' high.

also, that is with a little flyer, which go mad far without having to use a weird UD technique (mini distance record is ~440' with an innova weighted mini).

next longest i have found are the ching fusion minis, followed by the supreme mini, the spyral, and the ce aviar mini.

Most of us use the ce aviar minis as they are the most high speed stable and probably the fastest. The weighted innovas aren't too bad either. I've found optimum height to be around 15-20'

Who threw a mini 440?

I threw one about 330' a few weeks ago but it was downhill (overdrove the hole by 100').

Retooled my bag (revo mini w/ quads to impress the ladies 8) ):

Putters
168g Med S Wizard - Putts / Approaches
175g Firm S Wizard - Drives

Mid-Ranges
161g dx Roc (very beat) - Ahny / finesse
172g dx Roc (beat) - straight

Fairway Driver
172g Pro Teebird-L (beat) - Straight / Ahny

Distance Driver
168g dx Valkyrie (beat) - Max D / straight

Wind Drivers
171g elite z Crush - Headwinds / hyzer
169g elite z Predator - Extreme headwinds / hyzer


I am liking my setup, the crush seems overstable enough for my wind needs...would the pred or crush be overlap? Any other overlap / gaps anyone sees lemme know.

the crush has a small abrupt bead, which will give some stability, but not enough to be a dedicated headwind driver unless you got one that is freakishly overstable.

i would actually say with the discs you currently have in your bag you are suffering from slight underlap.

a newer roc or kc roc and possibly a less beat tl or valk would probably fill in nicely.

Drivers:
Millennium Polaris LS - 172g (straight drivers, longer slight hyzer midrange)
DX Valkryie - 174 (hyzer drives in wind)
DX Valkryie - 148 (big distance in little wind)
DX Stingray 172 (turnovers, thumbers, rollers)
DX Eagle 167 (main driver)

Lightning Rubber Putter - 174g
Elite X Challenger - 170g
Star Aero P&a - 180g

bag looks good. i would suggest adding a true overstable driver though for skip shots, flex shots, knife hyzers, mondo headwinds, etc.

RhBh
wizard glow_ goto putter & straight ups to 200ish (glow pastic = s? ss?)
aviar beat dx_ annie upshot (wiz overlap)
rhyno beat dx_ annie upshot longer (beat roc overlap)
challenger fresher d_ short hyzer ups

d buzz_ straight shots, long anhyzer finishes- like my old beat rocs used to be
superroc beat, lighter_ sentimental ace disc, shorter *safe* anhyzer ups/ around corners
x,z buzz's_ straight with slight hyzer finishes
z wasp_ headwinds, "stiffer" flex- annie to flat starts w/ hyzer finish fer sure

sidewinders star/champ_ hyzer flip ideally, tunnel shots where a flip is better than hard fade, uphill drives- touchy, easy to power thru, beware the understable outta the box, right?
wraiths cfr, new dx_ S shots with room to flex, nice turn w/fade but can be flipt
tee rex star_ taking the place of the cfr wraiths, faster, stiffer- I need to start w/ big annie & put it high- have seen the D potential but needs to be a strong snap (for me)- but even the low ones go pretty damn far
x avenger_ S shots, more control, eaiser turn with prdeictable fade, shorter
valk dx_ control hyzerflips, roller
firebird dx 150_ get outta trouble w/ distance, roller
Z crush, champ orc_ mostly reliable back-ups, old faves


need to clean up my grip and release to power the faster drivers
need to learn to hyzerflip my stiffer plastic, let it do the work for the D
need to load up on molds I like to simplify- and learn more/practice what's on this site
need to rely on my oldguy golf game and play within myself, rather be ctp after 2nd shot than 1st...

seems almost rare any more to use each of driver/mid/putter in the same hole- more often its a driver or mid off the box and my wizard on in for an up n down...
havin some luck lately "putting" a buzz or roc from 50ish feet+, same squared up delivery with a faster disc lofting in with less blow by if missed- that said I've hit some long ones standing and throwin the wizard like I was playin catch on the beach... such is golf

Yes, he's referring to marker discs. A subsequent post revealed Blakes distance model of choice was a little flyer.

I'd like to see 275'. I've been playing and competing in mini tournaments for about 15 years and haven't seen anyone throw over 250' on flat ground.

Btw, methinks ce aviar minis are superior to Little Flyers or any other mass produced mini for mini golf drives. I use Little Flyers for short to medium turnovers ,putting and occassional touch shots, but mini aviars for longer (100-230') shots.

i believe the LF is closer to 70g.

275' requires about 25-30' of height and a bit of room.

they have a lot more lift than ce aviar minis.
