It depends on how much weight you put on length vs fade. could be a mid or putter depending on your arm and requirements. Driver only, how about a hyper-flipped under stable like a Valkyrie or Vision?

Yeah, TL might be your best bet if you want minimal turn as well. A lot also depends on how far you can throw and how high the disc is on if it will have a chance to fade.

Beat in a DX Teebird...will loose fade and still resist turn whereas a TL will turn over.

Throw about 300', I don't want to throw an understable valk, given that perfect hyzer release they are money, I just want something I can throw flat and have it stay that way.

300' would be a good goal for a mid. that's my dream. we should be able to get a Roc, Buzzz or Core go 300' with very little fade. I have done it, but not very consistently. probably a Stalker or Teebird are the way to go. but if you are hitting 300' now, you are so close to having the ability to do it with a mid, I'd say keep working the mid. you are probably already hitting 250'. go for it.
