Comet. Effortless distance and dead straight if thrown proper.

Also, my new McPro Roc3's are very, very straight flyers.

At 200 ish ft of distance, you will be super happy with a mako III. You may find a z comet under 170 g pretty user friendly also. Comet in x is good , but will beat into a turnover quickly. All assuming a level pull on the disc. Both discs are very forgiving around 200, mako may have a touch more fade. I still carry my mako III, but have to put a little hyzer flip on it now. It will flip up to a270 ft lazer when thrown fast n low.

Another vote for the comet. I pair mine with a beat wizard for shorter shots so I won't keep gliding past the basket.
First round I threw a comet I was skeptical but kept using it and now I am loving it especially for the dead straight shots with little room to work (ie BRP hole 4).

Just find a disc you find comfortable and keep using it and cycle if need be.

My fairly beat eclipse axis tears up middle creek.

i tend to play with about 5 discs there.

beat rhyno
axis eclipse
leopard star
predator esp

this is the meat and potatoes of my bag.

the thing i really like about MC is the fact that it forces you to make a nice shot. i have even parked #10 with a leopard. it was a beaut.

im going to agree with the "find a disc you like and keep using it" motto. there is no magic disc, and somedays you're just not on. i have a whole tub of discs, and have whittled my bag down to 14. master that midrange you like, and buy a few of it and you're good to go.

The only way you will get a straight shot is if you adjust an understable mids release angle depending on your power level. I recceomend and 170g tp tursas. Very smooth turn from a slight hyzer at full power. At less power it's laser straight with great glide release it more at a hyzer as you increase power. It's one of the most fun mids i have ever thrown

A beat in Pro Roc is the closest thing I've thrown to what you are describing.

Fugitive is the straightest midrange I've thrown.

Mako or Legacy Gauge sounds like what you are looking for. for the shot you are talking about I also use a Champ Valk and throw it flat, low and straight.

Flying Squirrel from ABC with your power that thing will work wonders. Power it down as much as you want it will finish straight on a flat release. Then when your power increases it will become a hyzer flip machine that glides for days. I seriously can't say enough good things about this disc.
