Meteor is my favorite sidearm understable midrange. Esp is very understable but still easy to flick.

Westside's Tursas is understable, beadless, and most are flat topped.

Fuse, Evidence, Meteor, Claymore, Tursas, Theory are all what came to mind quickly. Evidence and Claymore I think are gonna be the flattest and most beadless.

I've tried a 400g M4 and it feels great but it is way more stable than I anticipated. More of a neutral disc then understable for me. Thrown on a hyzer it will actually hold the hyzer. It will fight out of anhyzer angles and is fairly torque resistant.

I was contemplating a prodiscus stari but it is super hard to find any information on them. Infinite has them listed as 5/4/-2/1, marshal street has it rated at 4/4/-2/0 and prodiscus has it listed as 6/4/-1/1. Which leads me to believe that this is a more neutral higher speed mid similar to the m4. Does anyone here have experience with this disc?
The first disc I was able to forehand with reliability was the Mako3 (a Star Mako3, but Champion works well, also), and it meets your criteria. So that's my first suggestion.

Also, the Panther works well for me as a forehand midrange. But I'm biased towards Panthers.

After a couple years of not having my champ panther in the bag, I finally put it back in. I now run Pursuit, Matrix, Panther for kids and my game has gotten much better for mixing the bag up a bit. I can flick all three with no problem but when I want dead straight with zero fade I always grab the panther.

The question really depends how far you can throw a forehand... And want to throw this disc. I use a few pro D zones for all my comfortable forehands up to 300 feet. The one I use the most has been in that perfect hyzerflip to straight or hyzerflip to turnover slot for over a year and doesn't plan on ever getting flippier. Zones come out very well forehand and are pretty fast, almost midrange speed in my mind.

After the Pro D zone I move up to a 400 f3 for up to 325. That covers basically all holes that go straight and have any right finish for me (RH).

I know no one likes the pro D but it works really well for this slot.

I do not have a forehand other then for putting and I do not have an understable midrange. If I were to use a disc for a forehand option, I would use a Glide being the slightly understable replacement for the Impact a good forehand option that I have seen used well as a forehand disc, the Impact that is. I use the Impact as my dead straight shot for backhand and the Glide seems to be the Impact when looking at the disc online. I would have bought the Glide if it came in ESP plastic or even Big Z as I do not like that small a rim to be in a less gripping type plastic.

I would use a Pro D Zone for an approach shot/windy day putter seeing as how they do not make a regular X in the putter, it will be soft X as all Discraft putters are and I would want a regular X for an approach shot as Jawbreaker plastic seems to work best for putting then have an ESP Zone for a driving putter this is if I did not use a slow putter like midrange mold (Shark) I use for an approach shot as well as for a windy day putter and as the driving putter slot.
