Yeah a short distance at that
But I follow D event results eagerly. Not much over 400' on low line drives at sea level in calm conditions. I'm recuperating from multiple injuries and have only just gotten healthy enough to up dumbells to 22 pounds and over 20 reps so I'm still seeing results from muscle atrophy from a surgically operated busted throwing arm.
I like to throw hyzer flips to flat with Roadrunners and hate it when people on this board say that primo plastic can't beat the world distance record. So thank you thank you thank you very much for almost proving them wrong with that 245 meter toss
Do you remember how high the throw was? I have another thing to thank you for. The disassembled power ball/disc thingy speed/spin chart was posted here and was very interesting. That Ripley's believe it or not was fun too and brought a lot of TV exposure to disc sports at a time when disc sports weren't as well known and even less covered. Those are the reasons why I've always viewed you as one of the greatest disc sports figures of all time and a great ambassador. Not to mention the Aerobie Pro Ring distance world record
Somebody mentioned that you were building a throwing machine that had independently adjustable launch speed and spin rate controls. Did it work and if it did what kind of results have you seen? See Blake_t was earlier of the opinion that high spin levels added significant D but has since changed his opinion to speed being more important. I'd like to see average results and if there are anomalies in either direction of distance with more or less spin at constant speeds. And what spin does to distance at different speeds.
Moderators: Erin needs a new custom rank. Like I throw faaaarther than you. The only member that's thrown farther than him is Avery Jenkins and unlike Erin that wasn't in competition.
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.
