Sekonic L308XU flash meter - no 1/200th sec flash synch setting?

I picked up a new Sekonic L308XU flash meter. I noticed that for measuring flash reading, the synch speed settings goes from 1/125th sec to 1/250th sec. Is there any way to have 1/200th sec setting? That's my max synch speed setting for my camera. Do all Sekonic flash meters not offer 1/200th sec synch speed? Should I not even bother?

Put in 1/3 step increments (P 32 of the manual)

I think you  meant page 34.

And I may be quite wrong - but I think the reason is that 1/3 increments are more normal, and that's why it hits 1/200th - instead of jumping it.
