As with any other type of shot, the best disc depends on what exactly you're trying to achieve, and how well and strongly you can throw the disc. A normal distance driver is likely to flip over very quickly, giving you a straighter overall flight, whereas a slower, true overstable disc (XXX, RESPECTi, flat Firebird, Banshee...) will usually tend to rotate very slowly in the air, with a lot of lateral movement, which allows you to go around corners but used right also a long time spent in an angle that lets the disc glide better. I also really like throwing overstable putters for shorter accuracy thumbers around corners or trees.
Similarly, what is the best distance overhead disc depends on how hard you can spank it. I for example have a very weak OH, so I get most distance with those slow turning true overstable discs that glide a long time, but some others who can really crank the disc can get much longer flights out of warp speed drivers, because even though they flip over faster and don't glide as much they hold on to their speed a lot longer. So far I've noticed personally that the new super overstable warp speeders like the Stiletto or Nuke OS, which would otherwise sound like the best of both worlds, tend to flip a lot faster than the slower true overstable discs, essentially as quickly as any other warp speeder, so they don't increase distance for me at all.

Which one suits you better is something you must try out for yourself. Your distance is a bit borderline, if I had to make a vague guess you'd possibly get a bit longer with the glidey discs atm. Just guessing though.
