I throw my Star Valk an average of about 300'. But with the work I have put in this summer I am starting to get more consistent at around 330-350'. Starting to throw a hyzer flip and loving it!
Im sorta in the same situation myself. when i started i maxed out at 300 now im around 350-375
300' to '325 and hope to improve on that as time goes on.
Broken in Pro and Star Destroyers are the big ticket when it comes to maximum D. Pro Wraiths are solid for many as well. 460' the other day on a level playing surface...
I just turned 50 in July and most golfers I play with are half my age or in the early 30's and can really crank em off the tee. Dave from Gateway can throw his Wizards over 400ft as with Shawn. It would be guessing as I never have a GPS in the bag but most of know me and at 50 years old... I'll bet I can out throw you......With a Roc!!!!!
I bet I can throw a disc over them mountains there .

Yea, i think i can throw it over them there mountains and........ through the woods, almost all the way to grandmothers house! Grandmothers house is my goal!

  Just remember when you ask this question,  its very opinionated. So take it for what its worth. Dont get discouraged if you read alot of 500+ feet, because i dont think many can really hit 500 consistently.

max D is 450 right now.
backhand star Destroyer.
forehand star T-Rex
just last month, i sent a 170 gram star destroyer about 490. bout 100 feet past the pin on hole 13 at tradewinds park. of course the 20 mile an hour tail wind didnt hurt. lol
the star tbird might be slower than the new evolution of discs now. but man those babys will go a long way. give em a try.
how far can i throw???????? hmmm
well, if trying to aim for the basket it all depends on the factors involved.
1. a good in line throw going in the intended direction to the basket ,,, never far enough..
2. in the open field , off the target direction to the left or right ..... always way way way to far.
3. on a technical/wooded course ... usally to the nearest tree..then a good half mile into the deepest, darkest jungle...
4. in my mind... all throws are just long enough to to aces.....

I've been playing for just under 2 months now, and I can go around 75 to 80 yards (240ft.) consistently.

I've seen slightly built 19 year olds fling ungodly distances -

Maybe as time goes on my distance will increase, but I'm thinkin' if I ever get to 300, it will be a miracle and my max.

I use a football field - and would recommend the same to others - in getting an accurate "number" to declare -

Unless you need a quarter mile drag strip...
