Ok, you have 150 feet to the basket, and the shot has to be dead straight (no fade, no skip left or right). There is only a 12 feet wide path to the basket. What do you throw???

I have three Disc's in my bag that I could use for that shot....Classic Roc, Z Breeze. or my putter SS Magic.

I would likely go with the Classic Roc or the Magic for that exact shot.
Focus esp, Z Buzz, Banger gt-d
Is there any wind? Is the terrain flat? Is there a hill or a drop off past the basket? Does my lie give me an easier forehand or backhand route? Am I trying to make it or lay it up? Is the window tighter high or low?

Generally I want to take this shot forehand. I am better at the forehand shot at this range and it is easier to hit a precise line forehand since I can face the target throughout the shot (one of the best reasons to learn a forehand is to negotiate tight tunnels).

Probably I choose a Soft Magnet or my beat in Buzzz ( it sounds like a close call between those two discs) but maybe a Rattler (tailwind or downhill) or a Z Buzzz (headwind or right to left crossing wind or uphill).

If it is the last hole and I'm trailing by one and willing to risk blasting long (or in doubles if my partner is parked) then I run it with the beat in Buzzz. If there is a drop off past the basket or I just want to play it safe and make sure I don't blast past then the Soft Magnet.

My first tournament ace, this spring. 162 ft tunnel shot very similar to your description. this is the back of my 170 gram dx aviar. I drive with it alot on very short holes like that.
