    Its very rare that in a open field, im getting out thrown but everytime i look at a distance forum, half the guys on there (most of them int or adv, or bad pro's) throw farther than I do according to their posts.

    3 guys in oregon stand out in distance
    Skip, James Moore, Dion Arlyn, if im missing anyone else please inform me, but then we have a solid 2nd tear, of people like Andy, Shane, myself, and a handful of others that can throw 500 but it does not always happen in competition.

    My farthest recorded throw is 564, shane had a range finder, and I watched Skip's drive soar over my head while standing at my disc. 624' Skip Wise, the farthest throw ive ever seen on flat ground no wind.

    That one day at Selmac 3 of us recorded throws (NOT ROLLERS) of over 550.
    Shane was just under 560.
    I was there watching and throwing (rollers) with these guys. I do not know what kind of range finder Shane has but it sure looked like 600+++.

    I throw 400 to 450 and can roll over 500 (in the summer).

    I would love to see a long drive competition with Skip, Dion, and Andrew. That would be a great time to have a lawn chair and a 6-pack and just sit back.

      When it doesn't have to be pdga approved you get in to this sort of crazy talk.


      The 13*inch (33*cm) Aerobie Pro was used to set the Guinness World Record two times for the "longest throw of an object without any velocity-aiding feature".[18] The Aerobie's first Guinness World Record record was set by Scott Zimmerman at 1,257 feet (383.1 meters) in 1986 at Fort Funston, San Francisco.[19] The 1986 record was broken by Erin Hemmings with a throw of 1,333 feet (406.3 meters) on July 14, 2003 at Fort Funston. Hemmings' Aerobie was airborne for 30 seconds (not an official measurement) and was the first thrown object to break the quarter-mile barrier (1320 feet).

        I see that the problem there is all the distance those danged chains are costing you.

            I have only been playing competitively since last april and have seen small gains in distance here and there since. Until today if you asked me how far I throw I would've said, oh about 350 with my long ones going about 390 or so. Today I went to milo and taped off hole 4 of the west 9 by the parking lot. I am a noodle arm. My actual distances are quite a bit shorter than I expected. I average 285' with my beat up beasts and newer avengers, 300' to 320' with my surge ss(with a nice S pattern), and an inconsistant nuke ranging out to 340'. Wind not an issue, if anything a foot or two drop in elevation for the throwing area I used. My farthest throws ever in actuality probably ranged between 340' and 360' with my average drive at 308ish'. Go out and tape yourself sometime. It's humbling and it can only help your game to know the truth.

              How far can I throw? I went to a field by the house..........stepped it off, used a wheel, tape measure, lazer range finder, and GPS. How far did I throw? Not very!

              ps......oh yeah, but I did find out my internet distance to be a bit over 495' 6.3".

                You've got a lot to learn about posting distances on the Internet. You're supposed to add, not subtract.

                        I'm one of those guys that likes to be as accurate as possible when pacing something off. I've found my average pace to be about 2' 10". Sure it's a little short but it's pretty damn close, which is why I don't mind saying "I paced such and such off at X". But perhaps that's just me!

                          I threw a 250' hyzer with a z flash one time that went 1500+ feet.

                          It was on some beach on the OR coast, and I was throwing from a wind protected inlet toward the water and the 40-60mph winds... the disc took an innocent little skip, picked up, wobbled a little bit and began to roll... picked up speed and rolled forever! I chased after it for a few hundred yards, sand stinging the back of my legs the whole time... I had to stop and catch my breath a few times and went from damning the disc to cheering for it to keep rolling... every time it would slow down and wobble a bit, the constant wind would pick it back up.

                              I long ago decided to learn to do a 36 inch pace. My measured pace is nothing like my walking pace. I practiced it and have a good feel for it. I've been doing it for about 40 years. I'm better at it than putting. I know I'm getting old and my hips will not be getting any better over time, and that my accuracy will sometime begin to fade. It's just the way it goes. I was inspired by people I met who knew how to pace off stuff with great accuracy. I figured if they could do it, so could I. It is easier than shooting pool, and I once got pretty good at that too. But that was a long time ago.

                                I'd say average throw is 350-375' With long capping a bit over 400'. Guess I need to get a range finder and a friend to go hit a field and see what I can actually do.
