Champion TeeBird would make mincemeat of this scenario provided the TeeBird is a nice flat one, I have a 11x for such instances.

If it needs to finish with no fade, the Z Stalker is the answer.

Fresh Fossil Scale, 2nd run FD, or SPD depending on the line.

If I need a really beefy shot it's a FB. I prefer the Sextons.

In that situation i take some speed off of it so that its dumping hard and just hits instead of skipping or skittering.

BT Soft Harp would work too, but you would have to put a lot more on in and create more error room.

For me it would depend on the exact line and how low the ceiling is.

250' is about the furthest I tend to use my mids FH, so if there's a low enough ceiling to make me second guess flicking a Vector, or it's closer to 280', I'd definitely be discing up to a fairway driver. I'd be flicking a seasoned Crave, or fresh Crave, depending on the specific line and wind conditions. I'd be using a standstill or single step shot. I tend to stick with a one step flick for shots under 300'.

mine was the pro d zone but kind of want something that will stay in the air more when powered down. also the sidearm grip is not bad but not great.
In that range I have 3 options that I'd consider go-to's: Ion, Envy and Vector. I'll sometimes flick an Axis or my beat Atom, but not as often. Which of those 3 I go with depends on the line and distance. Closer to 200' I'm more inclined to go with the Vector or Envy, closer to 100' and I like the minimal fade but reliable HSS of my Ions.

I have difficulty flicking mids consistently so I picked up a Opto Trident. It's technically a fairway but has the speed of a mid. It flicks very consistently and is very easy to control. Don't let the numbers make you think it's massively os, it's pretty straight when flicked. It has a ton of utility and is perfect for the shot you're asking about.

Sounds to me like a champ teebird would be perfect for this shot.

My favorite touch shot forehand approach discs in the 100-200ft range are a Fuzion Judge, Lucid Truth and surprisingly enough, a Star Leopard.
