The mako has good distance for a point and shoot mid. To go further on similar lines, I'd step up to a straight fairway driver like the FD, River, or a Leo. Those all have good glide and stay on the lines you throw them on.


Thanks for that, i guess Stingray isnt what im looking for then. I;ve got an FD waiting for me at home, unfortunately won't be there to throw it for another 5 months...
Current bag is sloppy yet fun; Judges, comet, wasp, FD's, river?, saint?, PD's, Flow, D1, Nuke, ...

How far do you get other mids because that is good D? I have a grip that might not be tight enough and the extra D you get over me might also come with the benefit of more spin thanks to a probably better grip. But my disc may be in the middle of the pack too and your disc can of course be beefier still. I've heard of more understable SSs than mine. My SS is not great in the wind either if is not a rear wind.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

That's about as far as I throw mids. My grip is loose. The pro I play with has been ragging on me about it. I am a snap guy mostly.

Made my longest flat land toss in some rear wind with my 180 King Cobra with 356' so i thought i'd try a lighter one and get a spare so i got one in 175. Headwind only driving range in pretty bad wind speeds flipped a few degrees. Gotta try the 175 in less wind and more opportune wind directions and see how the 180 fares in headwinds. As a comparison a Z 172 Stalker flipped as much. I imagine that the 175 can be a pretty nice combo of non flipping HSS and good glide with nice D for a mid in less demanding winds.
