Would you guys consider average distances with the Beasts around 380ft to 390ft pretty decent? When I hear about people getting these over 400ft I feel I'm doing something wrong.
Instead of me trying to rip these things a ton,I'm just being more finesse with them and just letting them rip out of the hand. If I try throwing them too hard I get this pain right above my My rotator cuff below my shoulder. When I'm smooth there is no pain. I guess it's just me getting older
Yes, pretty decent. More stable champs should be good out to about 450 in calm conditions. How often do you need 450 ft drives though? I hope you're not overthrowing the Beast trying to get it to go as far as a Tern can. If your Tern was getting to 400 and your Beast is getting to 380, not a problem, IMO.
To be honest I would like to be able to throw that far,but I think if I would have reached that distance I would have by now.
I guess I'm guilty in that aspect. I was trying to overthrow them,but then I was getting some OAT in the mix. When I went back to being Finesse,which I should do all the time now, I was throwing them much more Consistent and between 380ft to 390ft.
I shouldn't get so frustrated like I do just because of that. I'm having to relearn things and deal with a disc not breaking that 400ft mark everynow and then.I'm for sure going back to being Finesse. I worked with that quite a bit yesterday. Doing standstills and just a 3 step X-Step and made sure I was smooth the whole way. Once I got the feel back I was maybe 5ft off of me trying to rip it as hard as I could throws.
Those high speed discs spoiled me
450 ft, and even 400 are just numbers, nothing magical about it. There aren't many holes where you'll need that. It can be fun to air things out at a field and try for bigger distance drives, but on a course, I don't even think about exactly how far each drive is going with which disc.
Oh, I think you'll be happier in the long run with drivers like the Beast(situational) and PD. The Beast, to me, is a longer and slightly more stable Valkyrie. What's not to like? If your PD isn't getting quite the distance you want, step up to an Orc, or even a Wraith...Orc 2.0cm, Wraith 2.1cm. And then maybe use the PD as more of a control driver.
FYI, I typically max out at 380-400 ft, with the occasional big bomb(for me) to about 430. Drivers I've gotten to 430+ ft are the GL Havoc, GL Bolt/King, GL Flow, R-Pro Boss, and now the Lucid Renegade, which I like the best for sweet hyzer-flip drives. For stable-OS duty, it's a champ Orc with moderate dome, and which is very long with very good glide. For more fade and into a headwind, I use a QOLF.
Anyway, 380-400 is on the course. At a field I gain maybe 20-30 ft, but that's repetitive throwing under ideal conditions.
