It is insanely hard to hit a good line to take advantage of the wind, and there is also quite a bit of luck involved with high winds. A thrower could do the exact same line 30 seconds apart and end up with a 200 foot difference in their distance.
That being said, David Wiggins Jr. can throw 600 feet in calm conditions so I wouldn't say the throw lacks credibility at all or that it is a bunch of bunch.
