I had a KC Pro Roc. It flew nice but gashed up fairly quick. I do not know how much of a difference there is from KC Pro from Pro, but I am not sure Pro is the plastic for midranges considering the abuse they are suppose to take in your approach/ recovery/ escape game.

At least the Star in the upper weights seem very durable.

With that logic DX Rocs should be poor mids; we know that ain't true...

I am not a fan of DX plastic either, but I am stressing the "I" part of that statement. At least DX is more economical than Pro, thus making it a better choice because you are getting more out of the money you spent on it. The question then is, would a DX Mako be a good idea?

My outlook Roc vs Mako is "old mold designed for taking a beating" vs "new mold designed for premium plastic". Rancho Rocs are molded with stability to spare so that they will beat in to what you want. The Mako is molded to be straight out of the box because the premium plastic will keep that flight longer. I see them as two different design philosophies. By that, I'd say the DX Roc is the pure form of the Rancho mold and the Star Mako is the pure form for the Mako. Discs don't always perform well outside of the plastic they were designed for.

I had a chance to throw a Star Mako last night at league. I was thoroughly impressed by it. The guy I was playing around with is a 1014 rated player and he was rocking that thing all night long for duece's. When I threw it after the round, I came to the conclusion that I need to get one of these things in my bag.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

I tried one out also, but came to the conclusion that while it's a good disc, the comet is better for me.

Been recommending it to a lot of people around here though.

Im not a 1000 rated golfer, but I have some game and I throw the Mako and love it.

The Mako compliments my Buzzz beautifully, as it is much better for lower power shots, tail wind and long glidey turnover shots. The Mako is very putter like in flight and for me its actually pretty damn easy to range. Ive been throwin the Mako since they were released and singing praises about the disc ever since. I'd find it hard to not have one in my bag.

Has no one noticed that the Mako IS the coyote? I am holding them side by side, and can detect no difference at all. I'll take a picture of the rims side by side, but I wont say which is which.

Very very slightly, yes.

If anyone is interested I have a brand new 180g white First Run Mako to trade.

San Marino (Mako) Vs Rancho (Coyote) top. Yes they are close and maybe I could have overlooked the Coyote but the Mako seams faster and straighter than a Coyote; and tweak that works out.

NoLifeLeft; pretty accurate summary. Rocs were made for DX and Makos perform well in Star.

I may buy ONE champ Mako to just try it but then I am a junkie.

The Coyote has also been tweaked lately, now it's noticeably more stable/overstable than the Mako or the old Coyote. The old Coyote feels very close to the Mako, just wants to move around a bit more overall.

Interesting, I hadn't heard about this. Any way to tell between the 2?

I want to point another thing out about the Mako; it does not have a bead. I personally do not like beaded disc. I do not like the feel of it sitting in my hand and how it digs into my palm. This is not a knock on those can handle or like a disc with a bead; they are just not for me. That is why I gave up on the Comet, Wasp, and the Shockwave. I can tolerate it in putters for someone reason, as long as the bead is not too pronounced.

I forgot the Roc has a bead and I almost slapped down some money on a new Star Roc the other day. I heard they are just a tick more stable than the Mako and I thought I would give it a try. I picked it up and set it immediately back down. I spent that money on an Echo Star Wraith and I am definitely not disappointed with that choice.

I am fairly comfortable with my Makos and I think I am going to stick with them for a long time to come.
