Take any uber understable disc that will flip unless released at a 30-40 degree outer wing angle down (combined with an arm follow through at the same angle) and release it 5-10 degrees lower than that flipping point. This will take the S-curve out. Keep the nose down to prevent hyzer and throw it at less than 80% power to avoid turning, and it should go straight from start to finish.

Legacy Gauge and the Super Stingray would also fit this role. At 200 feet, a regular Stingray would probably work too.

Oh man, I hate to be that guy, but if you're throwing Buzzzes only 200', it's gonna be hard to see the designed flight.
At that speed, I'd probably suggest an Opto Fuse or a Tangent.

I would use an opto pure, or a opto fuse for the shots you are describing.

Stingray as mentioned above.
One of the only shallow mids I know of that is straight.

M4, opto fuse, buzzz ss, gauge, comet and more.

It's just a matter of finding something that matches perfectly to your armspeed and feels good in your hand.

I'd suggest a Comet (ESP is my preferred plastic). Slight hyzer for longer shots, almost flat for shorter ones. I don't know of any disc that will power down 50% without changing flight characteristics if thrown at the same angle.

At Middle Creek I use a Mako or Fuse for every hole except 3, 6 and 15. With MC you either want to go dead straight or on some holes you want to hyzerflip something so you can negotiate the early and late slight bends in the fairway.
