I've been playing about twice a week for a year. In that time I've gone from awful to mediocre. I play mosty wooded courses (Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, Black Mouse in Felton California) but this week I'm in Palm Springs! There's a little 9-hole course here that's mostly open and I've taken it as an opportunity to work on my distance driving.
My current average driving length is around 230' with a Star Leopard (168g). On occasion I get out to 270' with my Star Valkyrie (167g). Throws with the Champ Teebird (168g) are similar in length to the Star Leo, of course with less turn and more fade (given my power the Champ TB is my overstable/utility driver right now). Without an x-step my Leo drives are between 195-215'.
Here a video of my throwing six discs in a row:http://youtu.be/Aw-1nD0vAL0
S Aviar 168 - 192'
P Fiend 166 - 213'
P Fiend 167 - 219'
S Leo 168 - 264'
C TB 168 - 252'
S Valk 167 - 234'
You can see I hit close to my max D with the Leo throw (although I pulled it a bit right) and my throw with the Valk was up and faded hard—resulting in less D. A good throw with the Valk looks a lot like my Leopard toss but a hair farther.
So, what do y'all think I can work on to stretch my distance out to 300' consistently? Accuracy is a major concern of mine as well, playing primarily wooded courses. What are my flaws? How should I work on them? Does my current disc selection seem OK?
