The mako3 really is a fantastic mold. But.....

I had the same dilemma so I just bought both a Star Mako and Z Comet. I picked the Comet, but it's more about the anny lines that I'm abe to hit than it being a straighter or not when compared to the Mako. Another difference between the two is how they feel in the hand. Comets have a bead, Makos don't. If your looking for a little more speed then Panthers are nice straight discs too. They're smaller in diameter than a Mako with a similar feel

I think I'm just gonna buy both. Hopefully they won't overlap each other too much. I already have a DX Glow Roc and a Champion Roc3 for my other mid-ranges.

this ^

however, a Buzzz SS is a great option for tight tunnel shots, as expressed in the OP

I've never bagged a buzzz. I've thought about getting a buzzz ss though.

Pro d buzz is one of the best disc golf investments. Straight as an arrow and beats into a great hyzer flipper.

XT atlas bumped the mako3 out of my bag. Comets fly nice but too much dome.
Broken in(but not beat yet) Gstar FD is my favorite woods disc. Hyzer flip laser beams, slight hyzer flips to anny, deep hyzers that flip almost all the way up and ride a gentle fade line the whole way, it does everything predictably.

depends on what kind of mids you like.

If you're a fan of discs like the buzzz/axis you'd probably like the mako better. It's a bit faster and likes a lower line, and has some fade at the end. A little more resistant to torque.

If you're a fan of discs like the Roc/Wasp/Ghost you'd probably like the comet better. It's slower, glidier, and doesn't mind being thrown like a putter or with nose up. Not very torque resistant.
