I could throw a roc 450ft if I aired it out on a big distance line. I remember throwing one 400ft(on a big air shot) a while back with Booter next to me at the Disc Nation driving range(this was before I was throwing 550+). He was pretty much like, "thats nice, but you won't ever be able to do that shot on the course..."
I throw a lot of midranges. I have at least 10 in my bag right now. Just because I can stretch them out in the 350-400ft range, I rarely do. In most cases when the drives start getting in the 350-400ft range, a lot more variables come into play. 350ft is really only realistic when you have a nice wide/open lane and higher ceiling(or short trees).
So basically, just because the sign says 300ft, you shouldn't expect you can throw a midrange to the basket. I get caught up in this a lot because I throw a lot of putters and midranges. There is a local pro that always gives me crap in rounds for taking a tougher shot with a putter/mid "just because I can". He has opened up my mind to sucking it up and powering down on a driver.
Learn to throw your discs on lines, not distances. Going out a field and trying to hit the 300ft barrier will only slow your progress. Focus on throwing it with proper form and the disc will start flying further. Hitting the line with the proper throw/disc rather than "trying to throw a disc 300ft" will result in better results 100% of the time. Heed my advice, I have spent hundreds of hours in the Disc Nation field figuring it out
