Trident is the only thing I can think of. Season one up. The flight you are looking for really isn't something that's going to happen with a fresh disc, but a seasoned up gl trident will do it. Other discs don't have the same glide, trident has a wider diameter that just helps it hang in the air more. It's an extremely useful disc that started taking over a lot of my teebird shots for hyzers or straight to fade the more I threw it. Maybe a brinster or aj tb would do it but I never liked them that much.

The things you are looking for basically aren't really compatible. Pick two.

Default Straight stable, high glide, high fade fairways

Non-FAF Firebird?
I have a 168g Champion and it flies like this.

I agree with the Brinster, mine flies like a mini FB though. Beef.

Rival in heavier weights?

Predator was the first thing I thought of. Get a little lighter weight one.

If you like the Teebird flight but want a bit more fade, then I would suggest (as others have) a Brinster.

The EXP1 was the first thing that came to mind when I read your OP. The Banshee is more of a Felon / Spark kind of disc. The EXP1 is basically a Banshee L. It has more distance/glide but keeps the hard and reliable fade.

AJ/brinster bird, or an eagle X. Eagle x will break in to show some turn but it's got a very healthy, reliable fade

I pair a Champ Banshee with my Teebirds. It will go straight for a bit and then dump hard left at the end. (RHBH) Not much glide though.

MVP resistor. Lighter weight will have great glide but still very LSS.
