Default Fairway hyzerflip to straight with no fade

I throw a shryke (star 167g) 370' on a hyzer release, flips up nice and flat and fades off fairly hard at the end of flight for an idea of my power level. I need a disc that's further than a DX roc and will finish straight, I assume that's a fairway but am open to a faster mid. I've tried a pro leopard and an 400g f5, the f5 especially is close but they both fade off at the end too much. I tried a DX cheetah which is beautiful, but it turns over if I'm not gentle with it. Suggestions? Was considering a warship, tl, dealing with the leopard till it's eventually fadeless from use or even maybe a DX teebird and trying to beat it in

I'd say a 165-170 ESP Undertaker or a max weight Pinnacle Phenom.

D line FD?

you could likely get similar flight to your Cheetah without having to be quite so gentle

Lately I am liking a beat DX Teebird or a DX Viking for this shot. I recently lost my most beat Teebird and the Viking has taken over its hyzerflip duties until the next Teebird is beat in. My 170g DX Viking has real nice forward fade on it. Beat DX Teebirds are quite fun to throw, can't wait to get one back to where my other was.

Discs I have thrown that are close to straight to (almost) no fade. (All disc fade if thrown high enough.

Z Comet, heavy
Neutron Relay, heavy
Neutron Crave, 150 class.

That's the whole of the list faster than a putter.

Z Heat is an honable mention.

Caveat: All of the above discs need clean form

Atomic Piwakawaka could work. Not much faastwr than the Roc but very little turn or fade.

A mildly beat Recycled Stag is a very overlooked disc here too.

I can throw a Comet farther than a Roc. I throw very clean with almost zero OAT on mids, but I tend not to try to overpower them. Just a steady 85% pull out to ~300.

Maybe this is not true for true power throwers, but that's not me.

I was going to say heat also. I've also had a pro leopard and an opto river that did this but it depends on plastic/weight/wear as always.
