Dart or Mako?

Which of Innova's straightest midrange/approach discs do you prefer? Why?

Different discs. As said before, the Mako is a midrange and the Dart is a putt and approach disc. (Albeit a fast one.)

Though the Dart is labeled as putt and approach they're sneaky long...you can get one out much farther than say a typical Wizard/Aviar/Ion or even Pures and XDs. Never been a fan of the Mako so my opinion is biased, but nonetheless Darts are underrated and under appreciated.

What would you like to know about them? It's easier for us to answer questions than to arbitrarily come up with what you're seeking.

Mako is great, similar to my Tangents when they were fresh out of the box. The last time i tried it was a champion mako.

If I didn't throw a Tangent, it would be the Mako for sure.

I voted mako simply because it feels better. The dart feels weird

Very true about the Dart being fast, much faster than most putters. I can get one nearly 400 with a significant tailwind; they're fast and they glide forever.

That said, I still keep a beat DX Dart in my bag for all kinds of shots. They're great for get-out-of-trouble shots, touchy forehands out of bushes, nice wide left-to-right turns on a RHBH.

Both discs have a funky feel. But I would go mako. The dart just seems to touchy.

I like them both a lot! frankly I find the two very similar but I would prefer the dart for approaching and the mako for longer drives and approaching. It's easier to find a more overstable mako and premium plastic darts tend to suck.

Also depends on your power level. If 225' is powered down for you then the Mako.
