I have been thinking of entering a Distance Competition in the near future and I have thought about some discs that can make it over the 200 meter mark. The discs I have chosen are DISCRAFT ESP NUKE, INNOVA BLIZZARDS, LATITUDE 64 GOLD-LINE HAVOC, GOLD-LINE BOLT, GOLD-LINE HALO and GOLD-LINE FLOW.
David Wiggins Jr holds the current Distance world record of 255 meters thrown with a INNOVA BLIZZARD BOSS 134g.
If I compare the discs I have written down I can now see that:
Flow and Halo is to stable and has not that much of a glide and it can be a bit to overstable for a 200 meter throw.
ESP Nuke has very good glide and it has a very good speed but it feels to big in the hand and a bit Chubby for what I'm looking for.
Latitude Havoc and Bolt: In my mind I which I could throw one of them past 200 meters but I have to train hard to get there.
If I decided to go with either Havoc or Bolt I think both of them would have a good chance of breaking the 200 meter mark.
They are both very understable and they have good glide and the fade come very slow which is good for a long throw.
David Wiggins Jrs Throw was with a 134g disc and Havoc and Bolt they are both in the 160-175g range. Latitude 64 has started with what they call the "Opto-Air" which is the same air bubble concept as the Blizzard Discs. Opto-Air Halo could be a good call for good distance but I think Raw Distance would be best with 160g+ discs Because they conquer the wind much better. The bad thing about heavier discs is that they need more force/gram to hold the same distance lines as long as lighter discs because they don't have as much glide.
It all comes down to who has the best throwing form and who can put the most speed and force into the disc.
