Default Neutral fairway driver

What discs do you think fall under this category. Basically its straight with little to no fade, will hold a anny or a hyzer. A couple I have thrown as the MVP Relay, Legacy Patriot, Discmania FD. Others? WHat about the Innova TL or the DGA Pipeline? I lost my Relay. Someone found it and I am trying to hook up to get it back but not sure if it will happen, may try something else, thinking Star FD or Pro Pipeline. Thoughts?

How far are you throwing your Relay?

Off the top of my head I'd mention the Discraft XL, she's and oldie but goodie. Eclipsed by newer releases.

I have not measured distance with the relay but it bombs for such a slow disc. I am a 350 driver who can get 400 on a big rip now and again.

I really like the Thief for this shot. I prefer the Bio which tends to get a bit of flip to it so that I use it like a Leopard, but the Lucid should be nice and neutral.

I'd go with a Star TL. I have a Patriot and mine at least is not nearly as straight as advertised (hyzers like a Teebird), but I think Legacy can be pretty inconsistent (as can Innova although I haven't found TL's to be inconsistent at all). I have an S-Line FD which is less stable than a Star TL (C-Line FD's are a bit more stable I've heard).

It's a little faster than typical "fairway" classification, but the CD2 is a great tunnel shot disc. Super straight, takes to hyzers and anhyzers well, and can bomb out there with little effort. I'm also a big fan of the Prodigy F5. Again, very straight, holds lines, feels great in the hand.

FD is what you need. The swirly star and C are a little more stable, and regular S line are a tick less stable. It's the most neutral, hold any line fairway I've ever thrown. They go far for their speed as well.

Eagle L will fly dead straight for me up to about 280'. There is a slight fade after that. If you give it a slight anny to start out, will finish straight.

You can try a Saint or Escape. Escape will go further due to the glide.

I throw a gstar Thunderbird for that slot, but it is broken in. I also have a bit more distance than you do as well.
