I bag the Mako3 myself. It's also very straight, and I like it in Star and in Champion plastic.

Last but not least, you might try a VCobra. Similar to a Mako/Mako, but "sneaky long".

What he said. If you like the feel of your Roc's, the Comet should work just fine.

I'd say get another Mako since you already know you like it. If you decide on trying something else, it depends on how far you throw. I'd say if you throw mids 300' or less go with a Mako3. If you throw mids over 300' go with an Atlas.

The mako is well an amazing straight shooter of a disc, grate glide, pop top energy beyond the rim kind of disc.

But it"s beadless. The truth offers greatness if you can handle bead.

I live my mako/mako3, but I'm throwing my support behind the claymore. Shallower feel, still very glidey, and I find it more comfortable for sidearms due to the shallower feel

I lost my Star Mako a few years ago and replaced it with the M4. The M4 is amazing!

The KC Pro Rocs have a nice predictable right to left fade but need to keep in mind the infamous skip once it hits.
Why not just a regular old cycle of dx rocs? Pretty easy to find any seasoned ones which will fly like a mako and you have 2 molds plus could even go crazy with the vroc!

I do have a few DX Rocs that I throw, but for now the four in my bag suit my game perfectly. The thing that makes the Mako such a sweet addition is the glide. The glide and slight fade are both very soft. On a windy day though, forget it. I'm throwing Rocs all day.
