I don't really throw that type of shot but it seems like a roc3 would have enough bite for you. If you like the hand feel.

Harps (especially in baseline) are longer than Pigs. And, as they beat in, they definitely cover Classic Roc shots (although I have yet to beat a Harp in enough to cover beat-to-flippy Classic Roc shots). My beat one is long and very straight, with only the slightest touch of late fade. And it will hold anny through most all of its flight, at power.

I dont throw them, but a current roc in KC Pro flies a nice anny flex line....myself i will throw an Envy, Zone or a Drone on a short flex line

S-Line P2. Probably the best disc ever made for that shot. Will hold straight when thrown with a touch of anny and then give you just a touch of fade at the end. Handles power really well also.

I like an Alias, but for the shot I'm after I need something that will allow me to anhyzer release a touch. Lots of people throw mids on hyzer flips for tunnel shots or even just flat and straight but Ive found it easier to throw a flex shot for those tight wooded shots.

I have a Truth that pretty much handles everything I wanted a Classic Roc to do, the one exception being if I give the Truth any anhyzer on release it doesn't fight it, just.a gentle turnover shot, where as the classic roc would fight it and fly nice and straight

Verdict for sure. Alias is nice for no fade straight, but it sounds like you want faster more OS than that, and the Verdict is it.

I'd go Wasp, Roc, Roc3 then or ENVY if you haven't had one it rules

I agree the Alias is very straight, it even can turn if you throw it hard. Plus it doesn't glide as much as larger diameter mids. It's a good straight placement mid, but not what I'd throw if I need to get as far down a tunnel as a mid will go, and especially not with anny.

If you like the Truth but want just a bit more fight then I double down on my Verdict recommendation. It's not a true OS mid but if you just give it a little anny with the intention of it panning straight the whole way, it's the right choice. This is assuming you would be backhanding it, and probably in the 250-300' area. On a forehand if you give it anny and over 250' power it will drift the whole flight.

I was gonna say Verdict, but slowplastic beat me to it. Twice.
