Take 5 different flying discs to a field, throw one however far, then play bocci ball with discs and try to get closest to that first disc with different lines on the remaining 4. Repeat!

This has helped me a lot and also is pretty dang fun too.

Never even thought of that. Could also be a good time with a buddy or two, bet a Gatorade or a cold one on whoever gets the closest.

Although technique is more important than disc selection, having the right disc DOES help a lot. My go-to disc for 180ish tunnels is the Maiden, because it throws laser-straight and low for me, with virtually no fade at the finish.

It's funny, because this disc kept 'fighting it's way into my bag." I would take it out to the field along with whatever disc I was bagging for straight approaches at the time (MD, Judge, Gote, XD...), and the Maiden kept showing up the others. But for whatever reason (mostly length), I wouldn't bite. I finally spent more field time focused solely on throwing the Maiden for more distance...and no matter the length, a flat release goes straight. No fuss, no muss.

So, field work + the "right" disc = success

I bag a Berg for this very reason. It's incredibly slow (the listed 1 speed is accurate), and also low glide particularly in K3 plastic. Flight path is a controllable straight-to-fade like a baby Teebird. I have tried using the Berg for shots other than just the 150'-200' tweener, but that strategy just hasn't fit my game. For me it is a one trick poney. I throw it the same as my Envy and it goes 50' shorter.

I found a disc I liked and it just came with time and practice doing those shots. Being worried/anxious will throw off your timing.

For that range and type of shot, I'd find something with little fad (0), a bit of negative turn and low speed, to keep it dead straight for me.
