This is so addicting!
My farthest is 46.4 using Type C.
I realized that pulling the guy back as far as I could wasn't exactly the wisest option. :3

I got 42.1 or something like that after a billion tries with Type C.

I was using Type A and that got me like mid-30's haha. But def. Type C gets pretty far.

Type B got me around the mid 20's on average.
