I like my Champ Mako3(171g) better than my Star Mako(165g), but mine are the opposite of what you describe. My Mako is super flat while my Mako3 is not. I wouldn't call my Champ Mako3 super domey, but it certainly has a dome to it whereas my Star Mako is super flat.
My Star Mako is easier to flip than my Champ Mako3 when I give em some gas. I find that my Mako3 is more stable, it kinda seems to fight any kind of hyzer/anhyzer I try to put on it, although it will do it. Hard to explain, it's like I'm forcing the disc to do it.
My Mako is more touchy than the Mako3. However, I have used the Mako for quite some time longer than the Mako3 , and have used it BH, FH, Tommy, whereas I only throw the Mako3 BH.
IMO, the Champ Mako3 I have is better for driving from the tee or long mid shots BH , although my Star Mako is more of a workhorse.
I don't carry the Star Mako in my bag anymore, for mids I carry the Mako3 and an old Champion Cobra (165g) that's super flat topped . I use the Cobra as a workhorse. It does all the Star Mako did, is less touchy , and has a bit more fade at the end.
So I basically use the Mako3 for 250' and under drives/upshots that need to be straight, and the Champ Cobra for any (most) of my other short shots.
