Default Any Mako fans?

Its a disc I wanna like because the feel of it, but just haven't been able to utilize it on the course. Bought it when I was just starting because of all the claims about it finishing straight, then realized I had already played enough to kinda rely on some fade. Seems totally useless if there is any wind, my main complaint. Just wondering if anybody loves their Mako and why, possibly persuading me to hang onto it for certain shots.

I have played around with a couple different makos and now keep an echo star mako in the bag. It is more stable then the other makos I have tried.

I don't throw them, but a couple of my friends do. They swear by them. They throw hyzers annys and lasers very well.

Default Mako/Lycan

I love my mako, but I really only use it for a predictable anhy-line.

If you like the feel of the mako, but want something a bit more stable try the lycan. It is almost exactly the same as the mako, but it's more stable counterpart. It's my new go to mid-range.

I think the great thing about the Mako is how it feels in the hand. The only reason that I used them for the longest time. Very easy to throw as well. I'd like to try out a Lycan to see how I like it.

The Mako is a sweet disc. I use it all the time. It's super straight and has a predictable finish. It's my approach disc of choice.

Awesome disc for glidey annies. I used one for this until I got my hands on a fuse.

The mako is great if you have a lot of trees in your way but still need to get some distance after you clear them. When driving with it, I have to hyzer flip or it turns over pretty much every time though.

I throw heavy molds and all first run. However the FR does not vary from the RR.

It's also a great putt jump disc.

Throwing into the wind is tricky. How fast the wind is going is key. If it's crazy, no I don't use it in a head wind but would a cross or tail.

You just need to remember it's a finesse disc and does not need a power throw. For the folks turning it over on accident are throwing it too hard for approach anyways.

But like others side, if you let it go on a anny, it will hold it. The same goes with a slight hyzer but it always finishes straight. I sometimes even release it with a hyzer.

It's the Indian not the arrow.
