I would say learn to streach the Roc shot longer, in the end it will be the perfect disc to reach 300' even in a tunnel, if its not long enough something along the line of leapord or gazelle would be my next step up, although I dont even carry those anymore, I perfer my Z Glide over them for tunnels yet the Glide is more likely to turn if you cant control it, and I agree w/ blake that you shouldnt turn a tunnel shot.
Personally I throw the Buzzz not the roc (am a big fan of the roc though, and its in the back of my head that I may make the switch back once I have the money to buy new plastic every month) and I will throw my buzzz (or a Cyclone depending on the wind and hazards) anywhere 200-325 for tunnels. (250-350 in the open)
It sounds like you plan to keep your sidearm, and I highly reccomend you do, I drove sidearm when I started, and once I learned backhand I began throwing backhand for everything. Now Im relearning my sidearm, because it still saves me at least a stroke every round.
