Z Meteor. Throw with slight hyzer at full power or flat powered down. Generally goes very straight to slight right turn with very little fade, especially when broken in.

I’ve never thrown a Sirius Aurora MS. That might be even straighter...

Black Zombie Crossbow was my go-to for a bit. It’s a modified Gateway Element (if my memory serves me correctly).

And, I’m curious about the new DGA Rift for this slot.

There are some generalizations that hold true for most players but ultimately, Three Putt has got it right:

Both of those things would make a Mako3 fade.

If it's the power issue, you could switch to a less stable mid and it *should* straighten out a little for you. If you are throwing nose up, everything is going to stall and hyzer out to some degree so you would be better off working on your throwing technique than switching discs.

The same disc doesn't necessarily do the same thing for different players, particularly for different skill levels, and techniques. Even when two different players release a disc at about the same speed, some players naturally impart more or less spin than others. That affects the flight of the disc. What's flippy for one, might go lazer straight for someone else.


And you gotta execute a good throw if you want any disc to go straight.

I have felt a Mako and yeah it looks like a faster Areo. The Mako 3 would then loose the glide from the dome so... a tad faster from the beginning?

Another great putter like midrange that I have seen used is a Skeeter, my dad had a DX one from about the run that had the logo on it until he found it overlapped too much with the Rubber Putter he was using for non hyzer approach stuff so he gave the disc to my brother who did not like it. The disc flew as if you made putter with midrange speed to it, but it is not a faster speed 5 it is the slower speed 5 tier in the way the Innova chart is set up.

Due to how the disc is set up,you should be able to use the Skeeter as an emergency wind putter due to being wider rim then most putter's. The Skeeter is like a faster Areo/Dart anyhow.

If you can find it The Wham-O Maxflight is a good but odd option. Somebody has the TRC or MTA record with a Maxfight according to the box. I saw one in a Target in 2018, it is like a 190 gram max diameter no bead Comet but only sold at the 160-165 gram weight set.

I didn't read the entire thread so not sure if it was mentioned but the MVP atom thrown flat and smooth with a fan grip goes perfectly straight and does not fade. My neutron will also hold pretty much any line I put it on. An Axiom theory is another option, or a Tangent, or an axis, or a virus thrown standstill would work..and I'm sure these have been mentioned but the Mako3, Wombat3, z glo meteor, comet, archer.. Anything understable thrown with a bit of hyzer and a clean release should pop up and go lazer straight before a small dump at the end that you control with the angle of hyzer release.

I went through this same search for the same reason. The answer is definitely Comet.
