### Re: List of MEGATHREADS (since search is broken)

From JR:

After digging a lot of old posts losing a lot of time I decided to be brief with info so I let Blake do the talking Here's Blake by numbers or should we say numbers by Blake These things get asked fairly regularly so I thought it's good to compile numerical data into one place because this stuff is a great reference and holds a lot of important info in a compact package. Please if you remember other goodies could you post replies so that we could have a DGR by numbers repository? Thanks. Enjoy:

weight recommendations based upon distance you average with drivers:

if you throw > 425' = 179-180g Rocs
if you throw 380'-424' = 177-178g Rocs
if you throw 330-379' = 174-176g Rocs
if you throw 275-329' = 171-173g Rocs
if you throw 225-274' = 168-170g Rocs
if you throw < 224' = 167g or lighter Rocs

basically, you can move upwards in weight for wind resistance purposes, but for your go-to rocs, you won't gain any stability by moving more than a gram or two outside of the ranges i have laid out... what will happen is that if you significantly heavier you will lose a substantial amount of D.

e.g. someone throwing 250' with drivers will get identical flight paths out of a 170g roc as a 180g roc but will probably throw the 180g about 25' shorter.

there's a ton of people that default to max weight rocs... but most haven't messed around across the entire spectrum of weights.

Another message from Blake:

the majority of what caps people's distance is their inability to throw "high" and nose down. high = over 15' of apex, which if you have seen distance throws, you realize that anything under 40' really isn't all that high.

people don't want to throw slow discs.
people don't want to throw dx plastics.
people don't want to throw beat discs.

when you throw fast, upper grade plastic discs that are fairly new, throwing high is scary/dangerous.

the distance between putting a gazelle 320' vs. 350' is about 8-10' of apex height. the power really isn't very different.

it all compounds down the line.
280' with a wraith = 230' with a gazelle = 175' with a roc = 150' with a wizard.
280' with a gazelle = 250' with a roc = 220' with a wizard
350' with a gazelle = 290' with a roc = 270' with a wizard = 400' with a wraith.

it is roc and wizard D's that really make the difference stroke-wise.

And another:

height, where you aim, etc. are very much based upon the discs you are throwing, what angle you release them with, and how much power/nose down. there really isn't a general rule except that the only discs you can usually throw straight at something with are broken in discs.

as a rule of thumb
a putter needs:
~10' of height to go 200'
~15' of height to go 260'
~22' of height to go 300'

a midrange needs:
~10' of height to go 250'
~15' of height to go 280'
~22' of height to go 320'

a slower driver needs:
~10' of height to go 270'
~15' of height to go 320'
~22' of height to go 350'

a high speed driver:
~10' of height to go 350'
~15' of height to go 410'
~22' of height to go 450'

this will vary based upon the discs you use, but should be in that same ballpark.

Added the first one, the other two are Technique threads and this is the Equipment forum so I didn't add those

What about a list on overstable drivers? Discs like the Predator, Firebird, etc.
