Longest disc

Postby Will Aubrey » Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:50 am

What disc do you get the best distance from on your drives?

I ask because the discs I used to throw for distance, Inferno and Helios, seem to be out of production.

Longest disc

Tell us more about your throw/mechanics/preference for flight when it comes to max D.

What did your other discs weigh and how beat in were they? How far were you throwing them and on what kind of flight pattern?

The question you asked could have a multitude of answers.

My longest throw ever was a perfect fluke with a Stingray. No shit, perfect throw and conditions. Pushed 600.

My longest throw on flat ground was a 168g ESP Nuke that was pretty flippy. It was a couple years ago though and I bet one of the max speed Blizzard discs could beat that, but I've never thrown one.

175g Icon Rampage. I'm hoping my new 167g Icon Cannon will get a little bit more for me. My mechanics suck right now so I'm not even clearing 350 on a regular basis anymore. Used to do that with TLs

For my little arm my 171g Star Teebird is money. However, I just got a GL River this week and already thrown some of my longest shots ever with it. That thing just never comes down!
