Mako fades harder than the Coyote the HSS is so close that it could be the same between some individuals. Lycans i've seen have insane domes so no joy in the wind and no joy ever grip wise. As a consequence i've never thrown one and don't own one.
What are you talking about "many" Wedges arent durable? You talking about dx wedges? What does durability have to to do with the OPs question? I have a star wedge that hasn't changed it's flight since i bought it 6 months ago and I play on a heavy wooded courses in my area. It knocked out all my bullet XDs out of my bag and sometimes use it over my beat up roc when I need more glide. I've tried the fuse, meteor, and MD2 but settled on the wedge. I have thrown dx, 1st run, and reg star wedges and they all fly the same and are very durable.
I've heard from others that Star Wedges have the same quick abrupt change in HSS as mine did in less than two weeks. It also probably depends on your bag. The Wedge ain't structurally durable and if you stuff your bag without dividers with lots of disc (like i do for disc shoot outs in hours of field practice) the weight of the other discs piled every which way in my rucksack (a must for me filming too) twists the Wedge out of shape. Too bad because when new it is a tremendous disc in max weight Star. The situation may be better stored in the putter pocket of a disc golf bag.
I meant a new Wedge is more valuable as a mild hyzer flip to flat each time in calm conditions. For the purpose of this thread a broken in Wedge is good for hard turning far right flying shots. It ain't so hot in minute turns right because it is squirrely at high power and turns fast and glides so much that slight increments from a straight to a few feet right to a few feet more to a few feet more ain't easy at high power. The Wedge would benefit from a more HSS disc even a straight mid complementing it for the fine tuning of slower turns with accurate repeatable small increment sideways placement control. That is not true of all understable mids or straight mids with absolute finesse requirement that are easy to throw right as well especially with a dirty form.
What i like about the Wedge is the grip for small hands and short fingers and the great distance for power input. Comets and Fuses fly far too for similar power. Wedge is more like a putter than a mid though. Each of those has a fairly tight height window and needs height for absolute greatest distance. The Wedge is the fastest one of these and IIRC can fly farthest for itself at a few feet lower apex than Fuses and Comets.
The Wedge fades pretty hard in the end for the HSS and it is a preference issue because it won't help much in pulling out of anny for s-curves thus versatility. It hurts in tunnels.
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.
