Great advice.....

Seconded.

This is what works best for me, taking away my lower body allows me to power down the distance without really powering down my upper body motion. Either a stand and deliver type throw, or a one step plant and go. I usually prefer the one slow step just to get my body moving in that direction.

I don't know about attik, but when I asked this question, it was about a distance where I'd already taken away my runup and reach-back; and was already throwing a putter. The short answer for me was to throw a fh, ud, tp, roller, etc., but I thought that was pretty limiting.

What garu said, and you can also loosen your grip for less power.

Switching to a fan grip helps me with my lower power shots as well. Allows me to use the exact same technique, but with a slower hit. The disc comes out easier at the hit point, generating less "pop".

Yeah im definitely talkinga bout after i've taken all other limiting factors away...im throwing a putter...no run up...

When i say im throwing 60%...its in relation to what my "full" speed drive is...so if you think ur drive is actually a 60%..then im talking about when you throw about 35%..if that makes any sense at all

Play catch with a friend with putters and mids at varying distances to really develop a touch shot. Also power grip isn't as conducive to powering down as fan grip is.

Dont worry man, I got the same problem. Which is why I suck at short courses.

I agree with Garu.

Also, try learning to flick mids and putters (if you do not know already, sorry for assuming). These are great for standstill shots, bad lies, etc. Until about 3 months ago I never threw forehand, now the putter flick is probably my primary approach shot.

... I think I can safely say "I agree with garu" is not the answer he's looking for.
