Super straight!

Another Serpent vote, maybe a Birdie or DGA Reef could work as well.

Well, the Scale is a Wizard OS with NO glide. But they start pretty OS.

Yep. If you like Wizards and end up deciding to check out a Serpent, I would suggest checking out the Scale as well.

Oh baby are you looking fora Serpent. I actually dont bag them because I have beaten in enough Scales by now, but the Serpent is very unique in what it does. Resists turn, but has little to no fade. Beadless with a comfortable thumbtrack on top. Very thin flight plate. Its not totally glidless but its damn close.

Accurate. Like I said above, I have beaten in enough Scales (Fossil Fuel seasons nicely and holds the 'sweet spot' better than Fossil) to cover the Serpent role. I love the Scale because I also putt with Wizards. Honestly either one works, and they arent overly pricey...just know you'll have to work the Scale in to where you want it.

I'm gonna take this a different direction. I guess I don't know some of the discs mentioned (in particular the Serpent, which looks tempting), but my impression is most they don't fly straight since they're pretty overstable.

...so, I'd recommend a heavy Polecat. It doesn't fit the "glideless" description per se, but it also matches what you were saying about not wanting to go as far as your mids. It definitely goes straight, and it's a nice approach disc. Your form had better be smooth, though, as it's fairly sensitive to OAT. I know what you mean when you say that some putters go as far as mids (I'm looking at you, Zone & Pure), but the Polecat is definitely not that kind of disc.

I am surprised no one has mentioned a non-premium Rhyno. For people that can actually throw (not me), the Rhyno seems to be good at going straight and not gliding.

This is what I would use.

This is the easiest for me to grab locally. Polecat as well but I've held them and a bit too lid-like for me. I tried an r-pro rhyno when they came out bit it was quickly squirrelly and untrustworthy. Will have to see about something in DC I suppose.

Probably going to try these RDG recommendations as well, crazy amount of support for a brand I've never heard of.

I use a Lat 64 Spike (4,2,-1,2) for putting. Switched from a Judge, which was too glidey. I don't throw it, except for putting, but if you got it in Hard plastic, it might make a decent thrower. Thumb pads though, so buyer beware. I like them but weird to some people. For the distance you listed, I usually power my Comet down a little; I don't really throw putters.
