Default Long Straight Mid Throws

Hypothetical: You need to throw 300 feet dead straight with a low ceiling. You may throw something stable (MD3, Emac Truth, etc.) on hyzer to flip up, or you may choose something overstable (MD4, Roc3, etc.) to throw flat. What do you choose and why?

I use either one of my ESP Impact a hybrid midrange fairway disc 170-172 or 173-174 grams those two wight sets work best for mold or one of my 2 Champion Shark 3 about 175 grams. It depends on how tight the shot is and how low the ceiling. tighter the shot and lower the ceiling, the more I use the Impact over the Shark 3. I do not use a Star Shark or my old Pro in bag both about 175 grams as driving putter, approach shot, and windy day putter as those are more OS then Shark 3 and need a slightly higher throw then a Shark 3 to get the full max distance as the Shark has more the putter float in a midrange distance disc.

Champ Aero probably. I always reach for it in those hallway situations so even if it comes up a bit short I will likely still be in the clear

Comet, get carried away and turn it over into the rough on the right, pitch out with a forehand Thunderbird, lay up, roll OB, two-putt for the 6.

Neither can I the mold will come up short. The Impact will hit at the 260-270 foot range and max for me is 280 feet on a good day.

This is distance (and elevation!) dependent. I have an arm so I could throw a putter or mid, or even power down a fairway...I'm also at sea level. Lower powered players and people at elevation are going to give you a different answer.

Also, Comet.
