Default Straight stable, high glide, high fade fairways

I'm looking for a straight stable fairway driver that also has a ton of low speed fade. I got a Teebird and it's straight and stable, but it kinda got that so-called forward penetrating fade. I'm looking for a disc that flies like the Teebird, except that it fades harder to the left instead of fading forward. I got a Spark that one could think that flies like that, the numbers are 7 4 0 3, but that thing is a total meathook, super overstable utility like a Firebird. I'm thinking perhaps an Eagle or a Saint Pro. Are there other options?

Prodigy F2.

Great glide, very straight when thrown flat and hard, but, always ends with a healthy fade. It's a beefier Teebird without getting into meathook territory.

Saint Pro is nice and straight, but it wont be what you want. I like the AJ/Brinster Teebird suggestion.

You could also take a look at the up and coming DD Convict.

I'm not sure your first two requirements fit with "high fade." Straight-stable and high glide has a lot of options. You'll be hard pressed to find "high fade" without overstable + low glide.

the description of this disc sounds about right for what you want:

http://www.discmania.net/product/fd2/

"The FD2 is a reliable speed 7 workhorse fairway driver for all skill levels. It’s not too glidey to avoid you from sailing off-target and it has a low-speed fade you can depend on. Packed with a nice amount of high speed stability, this disc gives you nice straight lines when thrown flat and hard. The more power you put behind this disc, the straighter lines you will see it perform. When thrown more gently, the fade will kick in earlier in flight making cutting corners easier."

This would be a good place to start. If you have a local shop you might try to find a teebird with a slightly higher plh. The fade will start a little sooner.
I picked up a spark and mine is a meathook too. My spark is much more firebird than teebird.

So AJ, Brinster, F2 and the FD2 are the most popular runners at the moment. I looked up the EXP1, apparently it's more of a utility type Felon / Spark kind of disc than a stable fairway driver.

What about the Teebird+? I read somewhere that it flies slightly more stable than normal Teebirds

Not in my experience. Im one of the few who likes the plus mold. The only difference really is the lip of the rim. It feels slightly better in my hand but the difference is minimal. Flight I would say is pretty damn close to identical. The plus mold might actually have a bit less fade.
