I agree with Wolfmandragon. Comets fly further for me, too. Not hugely further, just a little bit. Comets don't replace fairway drivers for me.

To answer the original question you asked, here are the ones that have worked for me:
DX Gazelle
DX Teebird
Pro Leopard
TL
Discraft XL
Discraft Mantis? I don't have a ton of experience with this one but it seems like it might fit

I think your original hunch is very good. Fadeless discs are tough to find unless you are willing to beat in a disc that begins with little fade. The problem is that these discs will usually begin to turn like your Cheetah and you said you don't like that. The go-to answer to your question is DX Teebird. That's been the standard choice for this shot since 1999.

I recommend the FD. I prefer S-Line. The more dome the more understable in my experience.

Icon Patriot and Z Stalker are both laser straight discs for me if they are beaten in a little bit. Fresh ones will have a decent amount of fade, but they'll lose it over time. Anything faster will generally have more turn or more fade.

Once upon a time I had a beat S-PD that would finish straight, but I've never been able to re-create it. A slightly beat S-CD2 can get there, but I've found that they don't stay in that sweet spot of stability for very long.

I kind of assumed this was true but was looking for a lazier way to get there. Might snatch a DX teebird, that will be a great disc even new and hopefully beat into what I'm looking for.

A 175g ESP Meteor will bomb on a laser from a hyzer flip. Just figure out the right angle & snap. Its a mid but goes really far.

Warship you mentioned is sneaky long. My most beloved one finally got untrustworthy though and would occasionally turn over on me if I wasn’t really careful.

These days I’d throw an FD for that type of shot or maybe an MD3.

Discraft Heat is worth a try for this.

Get a couple of them.
Also get one in the mid 160's, it will get there faster.

Another option;
Millennium Polaris or JLS

I was thinking a Z Heat when I read the title, but also agree with the recommendation of an FD - I would consider the P-Line if you're looking to start it on a hyzer flip.

A Fuzion Escape might also work for this application.
