Default Distance struggle

Been playing off and on for a few years and still can’t figure out distance. Frankly, long holes and not seeing improvement in distance is what eventually leads to frustration and the off and on.

Back story, I started with hand me down free discs that I eventually learned were way too high speed and hard for me to throw. Since then I’ve been throwing nothing but putter and mid range stuff. I played with someone very helpful a long time ago that once suggested I throw mid range and putter until I could throw 250ft or more regularly. Well I’m still waiting to “graduate”....I can throw roughly 200 ft on a good throw (maybe a little further on rare occasion) and that’s side arm or backhand. Any links to helpful instruction or tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Everyone has distance problems at some point. Here's some YouTube instructional videos from professionals I've found helpful. Keep in mind form and technique is far more important than discs - and you probably have the right discs already (any midrange or understable fairway driver).
