i guess i should have said confortably reach the basket. there is a hole on my local course the 220' I see alot of newer player throwing a driver here and either blowning past the hole when a mid or a putter would work great.

Oh, sure for holes that short. But people claiming to drive their putters 400 ft...I think that's lunacy.

Hehe. Steve Rico runs/plays my home course. He can throw a Magnet 400 if he has to, although that's generally not the disc for the shot.

I threw an Ion 341' once, slightly downhill. Once. 400' would be pretty gnarly, you could probably have a cup of tea in the time that flight finished.

<div class="idiot">One time I threw a styrofoam plate from the picnic tables and it hit this guy in the head from 490 feet or so I think and he said,"Hey kid! You should have thrown a midrange!" And then this other guy says I'm with stupid and "Nuh uh, shoulda used a driver." So I took out my aviar and killed em both and ate my sandwich off my worn out ce roc. Then i went back to work where they pay me to breathe on new putters and then throw them from the back door out to the customers who bought them. It takes a lot more arm to get them all the way there in a box, but I could drive a putter like 700 feet at my best anyway, if you gave me a hill to stand on. So yeah, midranges are really overrated. </idiot><!--End this thread! Please! Close it up before we all get sucked into bizzarro world.

I've found mids to be more versatile (EDIT: or maybe I mean require more versatility) than any other range of disc (mid-range for me meaning 250-300ft on level ground). I find I only need one disc to throw long with (how many ways to throw long are there?) contrasting with three different mids.
