Default Prodigy equivalent to Mako/Mako3?

I'm looking to build a Prodigy bag and am wondering what is the closest thing to Innova Mako/Mako3. I'm thinking maybe and Overstable M4, or a beat in 300S M3.

Nothing really, closest will be a stable M4 and that's going to be close to the Mako3 - nothing like a Mako though.
I mean, an A4 is a slower straighter approach disc but that is really not much like a Mako or Mako3 at all.

750 M4 was pretty dang close to a Mako3 when I last tossed one, something like 4 years ago.

If youre only looking at Prodigy that's still my answer but if youre on the look for similar discs or whatever - I try almost all brands and many discs so I can compare/contrast a lot of stuff - I give an honest opinion and don't lean one way or another just because of brand, I like to keeps it real. But yeah Mako (original) is a unique disc and used to be one of my favorites, Im just using other things now, but I still have a couple OG Makos chillin'

Mako3 is a smooth slight US mid and really solid, but there are a lot of similar discs out there.

I threw a 300 M4 and it flew close to a mako until it hit a few trees and then not so much. I had a core team 400 M4 that if you put a touch of hyzer on it flew just like a mako, but thrown flat had more turn. I also had an M3 I threw for awhile that when I threw hard flew close to a mako3 but was more low speed stable. Also for feel the M4 is closest IMO.

Agree with the above. An M4 will be close to a Star Mako3.

Although the Mako3 and M4 may have somewhat similar stability, I've thrown both and used them differently. M4 seems faster and farther. Mako3 is a great straight helicopter landing touch disc. Both good discs. Maybe I didn't launch the Mako3 enough to compare properly but M4 one of longest mids I've tested. Pairs well with fast putters.
