What would you throw???

I've been working on my fairway drivers. In my newbie days I would just load my bag up with high speed drivers close my eyes throw and wish for the best. I"m a little over a year and a half into disc golf and i've learned the importance of disc selection and discing down. I'm currently working through what fairway drivers I want to carry in my bag. I'm looking for straight and consistent. Here is what I tested out today; Champ Eagle, Opto Saint, F2, Escape, Vip Stag, and Star Valk. I've uploaded a pic of the shots i'm looking to make with these disc. It's a 310 foot drive with the pin slightly back to the left. The line is not to tight but you have to make a decent shot to get it there.

Depending on your arm strength, Teebird or some kind of heavy-ish Buzzz

If you have the arm strength, this is a midrange hole. I'd probably throw my beat Verdict on a slight hyzer.

I'm getting better at driving my putters and mids.. The hardest part for me is griping them. The small rims feel strange and it always distracts me on my pull through. I have a Pa4, buzzz and Fuse that I threw down there as well. I like that the lower speed discs will drop in a straight line like a plane but I feel like 310 is just outside of my range with them. The Fairway drivers seem to give me a little more wiggle room and forgiveness on a bad throw. I def don't have a power arm my max with a D4, with a room is prob between 350 to 400. I know a lot of guys can do that with a putter… Do you guys think it would be better for me keep at this shot with a fairway driver or start trying to get this distance with a putter or mid???

You're going to get a lot of Teebird suggestions. I don't disagree (though the Eagle fan boy in me is screaming beat S.EX) That hole looks wide enough that you could tackle it with a slew of discs. If I didn't feel like laying into a mid, I'd probably opt for a tweener mid/fairway driver for this hole. Like a Gazelle, Cyclone, Stalker, Zombee, FD, JLS, or even a Leopard.

I personally consider the Saint, Valk, and Escape slow distance drivers. Couldn't tell you about the Stag or F2 though.
