Vulcan fits the bill, from what I remember. Also consider:

Nuke SS

Oh my gosh, how could I forget. I threw a Freedom last weekend and it blew me away. Like a faster/slightly less LSS Katana, it was incredible. Threw some shots over 450' with it, I couldn't believe it. Great disc for hyzerflip turnovers that fade back for max D.

Eagle X, sure sure.
But, and I can't believe no one has said this yet, QOLS (and, to a lesser extent in that it won't come back quite as hard, SOLS).

The correct answer is an Eagle X.

The Tesla fits this bill for me.

A VIP Stag also has that sort of Eagle X flight.

I'm struggling to come up with something slower than fairway speed. Maybe a max weight Lucid Truth? The one I threw had a surprisingly healthy fade but would turn if you asked it to. Great shorter line shaper.

You're mostly going to see that behavior from wide rimmed drivers with a lot of turn. The high speed stuff tends to want to fade out more as it slows than a slower disc with the same amount of high speed turn.

MVP's Switch and Discraft's Flash both turn and fade hard for me, but like others have said id prefer to anny an OS disc for an s curve. More reliable for me.

DKG had two discs that did this now that I think about it, the wing and a prayer and I believe it was the protιgι, but it's been a long time since I've seen that company around.

Interesting replies and there is a clear trend toward the faster and more OS discs.

I've thought about this mostly on very wooded par 4 holes where I miss the sweetspot with my drive just a bit. I can still see the fairway but the shape of it makes the shot really difficult.

I don't like the idea of throwing the wide rimmed or very OS discs into tight gaps. Therefore I was hoping to find some options in the fairway/midrange categories.

One thing I have noticed is, like someone already said, that the light weight discs tend to have this more abrupt flight pattern. F.ex Lucid Air Trespass and low 16xg VIP Saint Pro have some turn and a very pronounced fade. I would just like to find that on a normal weighted disc.

Although it is OOP, a heavy pro plastic teebird will perform this shot nicely.
