I would go with a monarch(175). This is the most controllable disc in my bag for rhbh. I used to only flick valks for accuracy but lately I have been trying the monarch as well and it might take the spot in my bag.
Innova....I like the Champ Orcs in the lower 160's.
the FL is a very easy driver to control. it's not as fast as your other drivers, so if you were looking for something in similar speed, i'd suggest a star SL. Very, very straight with nice stability
A star SL is nice, but I found them a little too understable. I did, however, get my hands on a Star SL (thanks to some good advice) and it flies like a dream. Just to give you an idea, I was struggling to replace a beautifully worn star Wraith and I was trying the monarch, valk, surge, rogue, and a few others, but the champ SL fit the bill nicely. As long as I don't crank on it too hard it flies great with good control. They are, however, hard to find...

I used to throw a Champ Valk as a primary driver awhile back. Love the disc and still throw it occasionally. A few months ago I won an AM 3 event, not sanctioned, and with the disc voucher I had to get some other Innova discs since the guy was a distributor. I asked about a Viking since it looked and felt kinda close to my old Valk. He said the Viking was a little more stable than the Valk. After getting back home, I realized he was right. The Viking gets close to the same distance as my Valk and isn't the least bit flippy. Try a Viking.
I'm also a fan of Star Wraiths, less stable than the champs.... As well as a Surge, Surge SS, and Flash (gotta show some love to Discraft!!!)
They say the viking is the same disc as the valk.......
Men throw the viking.........
Women throw the Valkyrie.......
Sadly, I like the Valk, better!
the viking is just a little more stable. the stalker is the disc i use the most off the tee. there a difference definetly but you might look into a stalker.
The sleeper disc that I like is the Millinnium Orion LF. It's a bit longer than the Valk as well. Some others to consider are... Innova Orc, Destroyer, Wraith, Beast. and Starfire. Discraft.. Surge, Flash. Latitude 64.. Striker, Riot, and Blitz.
I have a champion groove that is way to fast for me to throw, thinking about trading for a banshee, orc, or another valkyrie. I love my monarch as of late too.
I echo the Star Beast.. Definitely close to a valk in flight but more stable.
