King Cobra is actually better than the roc and the Buzz and that is a mouthful. It is in between those discs in speed but glides way more than either so skippage is not an issue. In a mild rear wind i put the KC farther than any other mid ever including the much faster yet glidey Coyote that shared the previous rear wind record with the Buzz ripped at full power. Those flew 105 m tops and the KC took the top position with 107 m. The KC does not suffer from release difficulty shape wise and is quite HSS without a lot of but a definite LSS. People have described some variations in theirs but my 180 and 175 are nice. The 175 turns in mild headwinds by a couple of degrees at full power for me and the 180 won't but it too will turn in moderate headwinds. In other words the KC is a long mid that does not skip badly and has a nicely low power requirement with plenty of wind tolerance at your power with good resistance to flipping. AKA a pretty damn nice straight disc at power with still predictable mild fade and at your power probably a decent fade while being less fading than the Pain.

MVP Ion - I have tried 174 Glow Ion as a putt-putter some time ago, and loved it until the weather conditions became wet and slippery (bad grip). Switched over to Magic. Never really tried it as an approach disc, but I guess it could work quite well.
I'd first suggest you try the Ion again. If the Ion has too much fade, do what I did and move to the Judge. If you're okay with the Ion's bead and could use a better grip and a touch more fade try a Wizard in the same plastic as your Magic, if you still want a little more fade than the Wizard, try Prodigy's 300s PA-2 or a Rhyno
Also, my power is starting to get 150 weight Jackal a bit flippy, but not consistently strong enough for throwing a 168 D-line FD Jackal predictably enough for the whole round. If you can suggest another fairway driver, probably around 160-165 weight range, that would be appreciated as well.
Maybe a 167-169 Neutron Volt?
The Volt is a step up in speed over the fairway Jackal so it should be a lot more overstable if 168 Jackal is on the edge of being too much
