Default Best low ceiling straight DISTANCE driver?

I'm thinking with good form, you could make any disc fly low, but aren't some discs better than others at this?

I guess the Eagle L has worked well for me, as well as a destroyer, but I'm looking for something with more distance than the Eagle and less fade/skip than the destroyer.

I use a Z Avenger SS that works great for these type of shots. I recently added a Champ TL that seems to fly pretty similar but the fade at the end reminds me of a Wraith/Destroyer.

I really like my Leopard and TD's for these type of shots.

Both fly the same,but the TD's are faster.

I have a flat star destroyer that has a nice stability at the moment for this shot because it usually turns just enough that it doesn't skip too far left if I throw it a little low (which is my tendency in low ceiling tunnel shots, which I throw often).

I throw a Gold Line Riot for shots I wanna keep low on tight lines. Less fade than a destroyer and as it gets beat in develops a very smooth turn. Only downside is the inner rim is very slanted like plus molds.
