Hypothetical straight flying disc question

Assume all this is possible. You are presented with a pipe that is 12 feet in diameter. The pipe is in a warehouse with no windows, no fans nor any HVAC system. There is one door and it will be closed during this exercise. The temperature is 72* Fahrenheit, humidity is 60% and the area is 100' above sea level. There is a 12' concrete tee pad that ends 10' from the beginning of the pipe that is sitting on the floor of the warehouse. There is a full moon.

What disc, off the rack, would you choose in a contest where the winning throw is the one where the disc travels the farthest from the tee pad through the pipe before touching any part of the pipe?

From the stuff I've thrown, probably a Devan Owens Opto-X Sparkle River.

A used one from PIAS would be "off the rack," right?
