I've had some dead straight drives with an Opto River, a Pro Leopard, and a Pro TL. The TL in Pro plastic is probably the longest and straightest, a Pro Leopard is the easiest for me to turnover, and a River in Opto plastic will fade late more than the other two, IMO. Westside's Underworld makes a great flip up and fly straight disc, as does the Roadrunner from INNOVA. This is especially true when having to throw from a standstill.

Okay, so it's hard to know what people mean when they say "straight." Lots of people seem to mean understable because they talk about things like leopards and Buzzz SS's being "straight" discs. When I throw those discs with any power, they tend to flip over and bomb out, so I don't consider those to be straight for my level of power.

Currently, my straightest disc is probably the Prodigy F3. I can throw it hard and flat (RHBH) for dead straight shots about 300-325 feet. It will turn maybe 5 feet to the right of my line and then finish maybe 5 feet to the left of the line, but when thrown hard and not too high, it flies extremely straight for me.

Your "level of power" isn't the problem. A Leopard is capable of going very far (400'+) with out flipping and burning. You just have to have clean technique.
