Default Mako3 vs Comet

I Love the Comet. In the right conditions its always been my first choice for midrange throws, but sometimes I wanted it to be a fraction more high speed stable. Sure that slight drift to the right (rhbh) is fantastic but sometimes something a bit straighter with the same glide and feel would be great.

I picked up a champ Mako 3 today and after a few throws can say this is the one. Man does it just go straight and glide like a Comet. It has very little movement through its flight and a touch of low speed fade (much less than the Buzzz for example). The Comet will never will leave my bag but The Mako 3 will be taking some of its throws away.

Anyone out there with similar experience.

I don't know about the Comet, but I agree with you about the Mako3. GStar is a bit more understable, and a G* Mako3 drifts right like you said the Comet does. My Star Mako3 is more stable and very straight, and the Champion Mako3 I have thrown seemed to be just a tad more stable than the Star plastic. It'll take a long time, but that Champ. Mako3 should beat in to a very straight mid for you. Let us know how it goes!

I've been throwing an MVP Axis I pulled out of my stash the last couple days - it is also a crazy straight flyer.

I think the Buzzz SS feels and flies a little closer to a Mako3.

I have to agree. Both of these discs are straight I guess but noticeably different for me. I also feel mako3's have much less glide

Man, I wish I had a comet to compare. I used to throw the comet a lot in the 90s. I remember it as been just so sweet. Don't know how it ever got pushed out of the bag.

After listening to Steve Brinister's in the bag I went out and bought a champion Mako 3. Only because Steve said it immediately went into his bag after trying it out.

No sales pitch on that one for innova because the Mako 3 is sweet kind like what I remembered of the comet. I would love to throw the two side by side to actually see what I like the best. Please send me a comet!

No in all seriousness I think a skilled player should do a video on this showing flights of both

Totally agree that the Axis is a straight flyer, but it does fade just a touch at the very end. The Mako3 doesn't: it just settles down straight to earth and lands flat for me.

I do agree with the other poster that says the Mako3's glide is not all that much.

The Theory needs a little hyzer like a Comet, though

I like the Lat 64 Opto Core as a compliment to my D Comet. With a Z Buzzz SS probably the next step stable.
