it is also good to get your elbow out there as far as you can in front of you.

I think I usually throw about 50 feet high at the apex when I'm really going for it.

I really want to hit 500' on golf line, but I am interested in learning some distance lines.

The line I use is a 45ish degree hyzerflip. Long hyzerflip, probably out to nearly 350-400. Then it has to flip into a decent anni, maybe as much as your hyzerflip, otherwise it will stall/hyzer out at 460-480. This is in my experience what happens, I got the line from a pro, but I already used it naturally to go far on a straightish line. He actually said he got it from Avery, just throwing something stable like a teerex-x or pro destroyer with a lot of power on a steep hyzer.

distance lines are best learned with beat, slow, narrow rimmed drivers as they are easier to learn to keep nose down for a long time when thrown very high.

your throwing mechanics are better suited for a hyzer flip line than an anhyzer line and you'll have to use some strategic OAT in order to get something 50'+ high and still able to hold a turn out > 400'. once you have that down with slower discs it's easier to translate what you've learned to faster discs.

milking lines and learning to make the disc fly that far is step one.

So, I should try to throwing teebirds/eagles for those hyzer flip lines?

if they're beat, sure. cheetahs, polaris, jls, etc. all would work in that.

newer teebirds/eagles would probably require anhyzer release, which is its own shot to tackle.

learning how to adjust/break your shoulder plane in order to get different types of turn/pan characteristics while maintaining nose down is key.

Okay, I have an old eagle L and a couple flippy teebirds that I think will work. Thanks.
