Default A Longer Mako?

Hey fellow DG-Fans,

i recently bought a Star Mako(176) and i am totally hooked.
This was my first ever Innova Disc and i am really liking the Star-plastic so far.
The Mako itself seems to be a miracle for me. It does what i want it to do. I can throw it nice and straight, hyzer it and even Annys work well.

So the question is, whichFairway driver would be mako-ish?
I am looking for a Disc that does exactly what the Mako does, but only with a good amount of more distance to go along.

Maybe the Jackal?

I have been looking for the same thing. I have a Mako3, which actually does go slightly farther and has a tad bit more HSS. I like to put that on long anhyzer lines up to 200-225 feet. The Mako I normally throw for anything 125-175 ft when I need something to go straight or anny right.

You can try a Leopard in Pro or Star lighter weight or a Stratus for slightly longer shots. Or, perhaps you can try a Meteor. But, the Mako 3 for me covers a lot of ground.

There really is no faster mako as most drivers will turn/fade naturally due to different wing designs and mako is a mid vs fairway driver. Just get any understable slower fairway to work with and not worry about it being like any other disc.

your best bet is to get a disc like a Tbird or SPD that goes out straight and has fade, then beat the crap out of it until there is no more fade.

Does anyone think the mako3 is a touch faster? If so then maybe that would work.
Like AFTC said, there arent many drivers out there that will fly in a similar manner, off the shelf anyway. In my experience, domey C-FDs are close, possibly a roadrunner?

I'm fairly sure the mako is a speed 4, mako3 is a speed 5

That's what I was thinking - my beat in DX Teebird flies pretty straight from start to finish.

An MJLS or seasoned SJLS is gonna get you pretty close, but like others said a driver inherently has more lateral action due to the speed of the disc.
