I use the jump putt, and i feel like i get more power, distance and accuracy...but thats me
I use jump putts for over 100ft, 100-30ft i rock back and forth toe to heel, and inside of 30ft, i straddle putt.
jump putts build my confidence for example it feels so much better to me when i make a jump putt vs. a regular putt!
So much more goes into a jump putt/putt jump/jordan putt/whatever putt that it does seem like there are too many variables to control and be consistent. I've found that when I have to go long and don't want or need to stand balanced and throw...a walk through putt seems more consistent.
Personally I think jump putting is for show. If you can't make a put from a 100' standing still I would love to know how you will do while having your feet off the ground.
i can putt both ways. but if your saying that you can make 100 foot putts, thats really good. thats a big putt.
You're wrong. I cannot propel a disc 100' with my traditional spin putt stance...I top out around 40 or 50'. With a spin putt I can get it out to 80 or 100' ft. But from 40-60' is where my jump putt shines. I have to swing my arm so hard with a trad. putt from that distance that I don't hit hardly anything, but jump putting in that range I make a lot of those putts, probably around 40% on a calm day.

For those that say there are too many variables that can throw your shot off jump putting, again, I say you're wrong. The thing that's great about a jump putt is that it's all in your legs. It allows you to use your normal putting while you utilize the springing motion. With practice, it feels totally controllable. At 100 ft, I am more consistent where I land the disc than throwing. I use it all the time to lay up.

If you don't want to jump that's fine. There are people who are blessed with a physique that allows them to trad. putt from long range. Just don't criticize the style because you don't use it or never took the time to learn it.
maybe about fifty feet out is jump putt range but i use tem for upshots alll the time
If I'm outside of the circle i use a step through for putting. And even then my distance putting is not all that good so i normally just try to drop it as close as possible, because jumping can put to much elevation on the disc and cause you to miss.
