A midrange allows you to hit longer breaking points, tighter lines, or lower ceiling shots because of the increased "speed". Putters can be limited in their line shaping ability unless you carry 5 different types of putter shapes
Every bit of this post by Zj is, as usual, on point and correct. Yes putters can go really far but sometimes you need a mid to keep it low and hit those really tight lines.

I vote for Zj and/or Mike C to just post quickly in every new thread and just shut it down right away.

Just stick with the Anode, it's a little shorter but close to the Mako3.

Thanks guys sorry for the double post on the same topic. I still am not sure if I will get one, i am leaning towards a buzz but don't know what kind is best for a not as powerful beginner.

I think you'll find the Buzzz is more forgiving than the Mako 3. You might get an elite-X first -- spend a little less money until you're certain it's the disc for you.

A Buzzz is a fine disc for the developing player. One thing that makes it so good is that it is there's a low power requirement to keep it straight, but at the same time it can absorb a decent amount of power. If you're throwing it 225' or 325', the flight path can be pretty similar.

So just pick up an ESP or Z Buzzz and enjoy. If you're really worried about not getting it up to speed, just go with a lighter weight and you'll be set.

Hahaha that's true. I haven't thrown a Mako3 (my stack of discs to try is too damn high; the last I sampled was the Volt, so I'm way behind and can't keep up). But this guy asked for some Buzzz advice in another thread, and my thinking is that you listen to your gut. If you feel the Buzzz is the next disc to audition, you should stop pussyfooting around and audition it.

Mako3 is better at shaping lines than the Buzzz & Anode (*Gasp* by MVP & Buzzz fanboys)

Ugh. The whole fanboy thing is pretty tired, isn't it, but whatever.

I wouldn't really call the Buzzz a line shaper anyway. It will hold an anny or a hyzer, but I don't pull it out of the bag to shape lines. The Anode, on the other hand, is a great line shaper. I'd bet a Mako3 is a pretty good line shaper though too, even if I haven't thrown one.

I'm not sure if OP is looking for a line shaper in the Buzzz. If he's got the Anode, he's got a good line shaper. Pair that with the Buzzz et voila, you've got a solid line shaper and line holder combo.
