    I'm going to change my answer to the new Discraft Stalker. I bought one today and WHOA! It will hold any line I put it on. The best thing about it was that i got it for 10 bucks in the used disc section at PIAS and it did not have a scuff or chip.

    Discraft Z Hawk. If you can get your hands on one get it. They are not made in Z plastic anymore. It's a titch on the understable side but always comes back.

    Innova Star Plastic Teebird. Any weight. It is amazing.

    Innova TL, in my opion this is the straightest flying driver ever... but I saw that this did not work for you. The second straightest flying disc I own is a Discraft Buzzz. It holds a line incredibly well, unfortunately even when I want it to fade.

    get some dx fairway drivers on the understable side, little bit lighter than usual might help too. I try to find that finesse in a beat dx glo leopard, 160-something.

    I'll throw in another vote for the Z XL it's my only fairway driver and I use it almost exclusively for dead straight drives. Then for everything shorter the Buzz is also very straight, and I can still throw it 80% of the distance of my max distance driver.

    I think the leopard that some of you suggested is a great choice. Just keep in mind that the valkyrie will never go away. I throw a 167 jk pro valkyrie (champion) on steilly pro alt. #1 (very tight tunnel) and get through 90% of the time.

    Other options if you got wimpy arm like me is: Sidewinder, roadrunner, monarch, avenger ss.........150-160 weights.

    for tight fairways i prefer the Z XL. it is the disc that i have the most control of and it has a straight flight.

    Aviar for <175ft, Roc for <265ft, Leopard for <325ft, Teebird for >325ft. This is assuming that I throw it correctly :-)

    Drivers are for throwing far with less control. For narrow fairways, throw a midrange disc. I like the Buzzz. I hear the Roc has a small but dedicated following, as well.
