How many feet are you talking about, in regard to to your "range"? Because I can't see were a putter change would make a diff. If mean you want a putter that doesn't fade as much. I would say try these.... Aviar (beadless), APX, Reef, Warlock, Omega, just to name a few. Also have you tried the straddle putting technique? Problem with it. It's not what I would call a good tech. for long range putting, but I find it helpfull when my timing is off and I'm just not "feeling" it that day.
It sounds like you need a mid range'ish type disc to go straight, farther & be able to reach the chains. Try an XD. Its pretty flat & goes straight, long if you push hard enough. P.S. good luck keeping it in the basket with this style. I prefer a 'pitch' or drop in style so I don't risk the big blow-bye (& subsequent come-backer)
Try putting like your cousin Ken.
I agree to agree with the others here. Inside 10 meters you're technique will get you to the chains. The suggestion for the XD was just to try something different. You never know...
And do get more than one disc if you like the first one & practice, practice, etc. Fan out the fingers under the disc & flatten the throw. Spring (explode) the disc off your fingers with thumb pointing up at finish. Bam!
