Default Short traveling disc @ full power?

So I've got an interesting one. Im looking for a disc that won't get me any distance even if I rip on it. I'd like to have something, whether its a putter or a mid that will get me a max of around 200'. For reference I throw an Envy upwards of 320' and my tomb 300'. Most of the holes on my home course are like 220' and I'm getting a bit frustrated with having to take a 60% putter throw off of those tees
I've got a Stego and Berg on the way. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to fire away. I'm actually debating on learning to throw opposite hand just enough to get me that little bit of distance. Thanks!

Get better at playing. Or throw an Aerobie Arrow. You'll feel very brave.

And you've answered your own question.

It's not a new disc you want it's a new grip, imo.

I use what I call my "Frisbee" grip with my pointer completely on the side/rim of the disc and my other fingers under the plate, none of them are in the "power" grip position. I throw as hard as any upshot or fairway throw but the grip removes torque/spin and adds lots of accuracy. Most times I add a little more nose up release, just a little.
My beat Ching Aviar will fly straight and fade nicely with just a bit of height on the flight.

I use this often, others have asked me how I throw that short shot while looking the same as a stand still full power throw.

I hope that makes sense.

How does getting better have anything to do with finding powering down on every shot not to be fun?

It makes sense. That sounds similar to a fan grip. And it's definitely worth a try.

Play with man hole cover. As long as it's not a sanctioned event, should be good to go.

Similar but not the same exactly, if you hold it loose the disc will just lay on your finger tips, or fall. Make sure to grip it tight.
