Innova Star Mako Review

Description - A straight-out-of-the-box mid-range

Pros - Flies nice and straight, holds a line

Cons - Only available in Star plastic (expensive)

Compares to - Innova Coyote, BUZZZ-d

The Innova Roc is on the top of the food chain when it comes to Innova mid-range discs. The slightly overstable disc is the benchmark when it comes to consistent performance on the course. Looking for something that's a little more of a straight flier?  The Innova Mako might be your best bet...if you really don't want to throw a Discraft BUZZZ.

The Mako is currently only available in Star plastic. In case you aren't familiar, star plastic is the highest-end polymer that Innova offers. It is super durable and I really love the grip it provides. Just gummy enough...but still feels solid. However, it won't break in as easily as a DX model would, resulting in more stability for the Mako.

The Mako is indeed as straight as advertised.  I would compare it very favorably to my most used mid-range disc - the Discraft Buzzz. The Mako is everything you would expect from a straight-flying mid. It has very little low speed fade and it holds a line quite nicely. To me, discs such as these are irreplaceable in my bag.  I would never play a round without a dependable straight flyer.

The only criticism of the Mako that I have is the lack of availability in other plastics. I personally like my mid-range discs in "cheaper" plastics. My beat in buzzzs, rocs, and meteors are among my most trusted molds for their versatility.  The Mako is a really nice disc...I just would have preferred some more options. Pick one up if you like mid-range discs in durable plastics.  You won't be disappointed with the super-straight flight characteristics.
