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!!!!!
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.....
Why is it so hard for your to believe that people can throw 450+? In a distance competition my furthest measured was 523ft to be exact. I use midranges for about 90% of my drives because they offer more control then drivers and I can get them over 350 accurately. Hell my putter I can throw darn near 350ft. So many people try to kill their discs to get them to go far when in reality, the more power you put on a disc the better chance you will have a wild throw that goes no where. A good throw is all about control (This incorporates acceleration, speed and snap along with other aspects that are also part of your form) and form (This is your angle of release and body technique all being consistant). Once you have those 2 factors the power begins to come. Also one thing I have noticed is that a good number of us that are throwing large distances are previous big arm ultimate frisbee players that can throw an ultra-star 250+.
