Innova Mako3 Disc Review



Mako3 by Innova is a mid-range disc golf disc designed with perfect neutral flight characteristics. Known as a very straight flyer with extreme glide, little turn, and no fade at the end, the Mako3 disc golf disc should be in your bag if you want to expand your straight flying disc golf disc collection.

As for the physical attributes, Mako3 is the low profile version of Mako and is beadless that fits comfortably in any hand size. It has a wide and deep rim for more heft in the hands, particularly when doing a forehand grip. The design makes the Innova Mako3 disc is easy to throw and cuts through the air at top speed.


INNOVA Star Mako3 175-180g
  • Diameter: 21.7cm
  • Plastic: Star
  • Weight Range: 165-180g
  • Best Choice for: Dead straight shots, Smooth hyzer shots, One disc rounds
  • Colors May Vary


In The Hands of a Beginner


Beginners will love the Mako3 disc because it is naturally easy to throw. Beginners could have the 180g weight option as it fights wind better than lighter discs. Beginners learning throwing techniques should pick Innova Mako3. It flies straight and holds the angle you want to put it on. There is a reason this disc is on my list of the top disc golf mid ranges.

If you throw it flat, you can expect the Mako3 disc to go straight. Throw it on a hyzer and it will stick without fading too soon. The same is expected when you throw it on an anhyzer. Designed for straight shots, Mako3 is beginner-friendly, the go-to disc golf disc for point-and-shoot with the capability of covering longer distances.


In the Hands of a Pro


In the hands of advanced players, Mako3 is the perfect balance of distance and control. It is the disc that fulfills the role of a mid-ranger with very straight flight.

The disc has a 5-speed rating but even experienced players need not throw the disc with much power to fly straight to 200 to 250 feet line. I noticed that when you overpower Mako3, it will turn to some extent. Meanwhile, if you throw it at a slow arm speed, Mako3 will have a slight fade, but truly not very much. In fact, this is one of Nate Sextons favorite mid range discs.

The Mako3 disc golf disc by Innova will keep its designed flight characteristics covering a distance between 150 – 350 feet when thrown flat.


Best Used For


Mako3 is best used for smooth hyzer and dead straight shots. It flies long and straight provided that you do not overpower the disc. With a 0 turn and 0 fade rating, the Mako3 will hold straight shots. Even when you throw the disc on a headwind, on a hyzer, Mako3 works in the wind pretty well while holding a straight line.

If you are struggling to get those straight shots or need that throw through the trees, Mako3 should be in your bag.

Types of Plastics


  • Star: 170-180g- the type of plastic for superior grip, predictable performance, and durability
  • GStar: 170-180g – the blend that provides more flexibility and for those with less grip strength.
  • Champion: 170-180g – the material designed to provide outstanding performance and durability for professional players
  • XT: 170-180g – good as premium plastic, firm, durable, and feels good for all-weather grip




For beginners and intermediate players looking for a reliable disc to get those straight shots and throws through the trees with ease, the Mako3 is the answer. Anyone who wants a mid-range disc and a putter at the same time should have Mako3 in their bag.

An extremely straight flyer, easy to throw, has lots of glide, and will consistently hold whatever angle you throw it on the course.
