    Nice, very nice. I think you should add in another term that takes quantity of posts into account also. As we all know, more posts online means more reliability when bragging about distance.

    Perhaps another squared ratio, say (posts/1000)^2

    (As I write this I see your >2000 count.... you probably throw those #2 Upshots faaaaaaaaaar)

        I like the arguments that say "I know how far I throw because I paced it off" or "I know how far I throw because such and such hole is so long and I parked it".

        Do you know exactly how long your pace is, and is it 100% consistent? If so, you are one of a kind.

        Are you 100% certain of the distance on that hole? Tee signs and maps have been known to be wrong. Is there any elevation change on that hole? Funny how that never gets mentioned.

          Alls I know is football field distance, and I can't get 360' every time, but my rollers will go, go, go if I get it just right. I have no idea how far, but I would hazard a guess at 450' max. As Scott says though, once you start guessing it loses all credibility.

          Applying the Schneider Formula, my rollers go 378'. Adjusted for post count, I can barely reach the bucket from 59'. I need some more field practice.

            My pace, when I'm pacing something off, is just about right-on 36 inches. Too bad it's wasted on a noodle arm like me. Anyway, let me say I could go even money on being inside a one percent error. So what? The Mine's Bigger thread is for the big ones. I'm pretty sure I'd talk about mine if it was worth talking about.

              I throw between 225' and 250' i know this becaue my discs land between the 70 and 85yd lines on a football feild from the endzone line. And why shouldn't you count the roll it's not like were throwinig the discus. isant the goal to get you discs a close to the pin (or in) on your drive?

                Because the roll tends not to be consistent.

                  I like this except for the squared part. Get rid of that and it's good.

                  Oh, and with my 1000' internet distance, I can actually throw 777'

                    while I agree that roll tends not to be consistent I think we should measue distance fom where the disc comes to rest because IMHO that is where you would play the disc from; or am I playing a diffrent game?

                      I agree that, because rolls and skips are inconsistant, distance should be measure from the first point of contact with the ground. There is a whole seperate world record for rollers anyway (1156.00 m, yes meters) Here's the link

                        Nah, you need the squared so that you can knock 20% off the Internet distance of 900-rated players.

                            Actually, if you want to be technical about it, you are playing a different game, as distance competitions are simply about how far you can throw, not how accurate.

                            That just made me think of something...obviously in distance competitions, everyone uses golf discs because they fly the farthest. But, distance comps aren't technically part of disc golf, so could that open up the possibility of competitors using non-PDGA approved discs--some sort of PDGA-be-damned-we'll-make-the-wing-as-wide-as-we-want uberdisc?

                              i'm changing my answer...

                              ... i throw like 599 feet dead at the basket every time and that's just with my putter and not counting the roll...

                                With Big-D in the Desert competition, competitors must use a PDGA approved disc.
