There are some generalizations that hold true for most players but ultimately, Three Putt has got it right:

Both of those things would make a Mako3 fade.

If it's the power issue, you could switch to a less stable mid and it *should* straighten out a little for you. If you are throwing nose up, everything is going to stall and hyzer out to some degree so you would be better off working on your throwing technique than switching discs.

The same disc doesn't necessarily do the same thing for different players, particularly for different skill levels, and techniques. Even when two different players release a disc at about the same speed, some players naturally impart more or less spin than others. That affects the flight of the disc. What's flippy for one, might go lazer straight for someone else.

And you gotta execute a good throw if you want any disc to go straight.
