How far can Ricky Wysocki Throw?
Ricky Wysocki, AKA Sockibomb, is known to cover massive distances of 500+ feet (recorded on video) accurately, which is over 152+ meters for my European friends, in a single throw from the teepad! He’s been throwing Lucid-X Enforcers, Latitude 64 Ballista Pros and Dynamic Discs Raiders while being sponsored by Dynamic Discs and was using Innova Destroyers as his go-to distance drivers while he was sponsored by Innova Champion Discs.
FYI! In the beginning of the 2022 season, at the Las Vegas Challenge, Sockibomb threw an insane 120′ throw-in on hole 17. His “bad” opening drive off the teepad was almost pin-high, and it was a 139 meter PAR 3 (457 feet) … I’ll say this again, this was his bad shot … This might give you a glimpse on how far can Ricky really throw.
We may easily conclude that a distance of 500+ feet (150+ meters) is no big deal for Ricky Wysocki.

“I am thrilled to return to Innova family, the first company to take a chance on me when I was young and inexperienced. To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. I look forward to the opportunity to grow Innova’s brand—and mine—for years to come!” Wysocki has stated.
Afterward, he signed a contract of 4 years with Dynamic Discs, worth a $4 million endorsement deal. He has also been offered to earn more than that through incentives and bonuses. Ricky will also receive a $250,000 signing bonus paid out in Bitcoin.
