I challenge someone to compare side by side the Innova Mako and the Innova Coyote.

I believe that this is the same disc, re-named and re-stamped just to sell more discs.
I was out on the course today and noticed similar flight characteristics between my buddy's Mako and my new Coyote. When held side by side they are incredibly similar by sight and feel. What drove me over the edge and made me believe is that another guy on our card had what he was told at purchase was a first run Mako. It has the proto star stamp and looks and feels just like the other Mako (and my Coyote), but on the bottom of the flight plate it is marked by Innova as a star Coyote.
Compare the two discs side by side and I think you'll agree that the new first run Mako is a renamed, restamped Coyote, being sold under the guise of being a "first run" to generate more sales.
I'm a big fan of Innova Discs and my bag is 93% Innova, but thats a dirty trick.

Got a mako and on the bottom had cy on it and also compared it to my coyote and its the same thing
Could some one post the profile side by side compairison pictures.
Noticed the same situation with the Dart and the Goblin.
Check them out, they seem to be the same mold with the only difference being the plastic.
Anyone else noticed this?

Bubble burster...lol!!
Men lie, Women lie, the NUMBERS don't lie :)
Ok, millimeters difference...if you like the Dart, check out the Goblin; if you like the Mako, check out the Coyote. I throw Innova, and others, but sometimes it seems they're almost too good at marketing...
I've never told a lie! Well .... sort of never:)
Different tops. Mako has a san marino roc top and the coyote has a rancho roc top if I remember.
thankyou for this valuable info. i'm considering getting either an xd, dart, or goblin and now the difference between a dart and goblin, i can tell what seems more suitable for my game. thanks again

quick question: does a higher flex number mean softer or harder? sorry for the thread drift
Coyote is also slower than a Mako.
I like to think of the Mako as a Rhyno on steroids.

To me, the Mako's rim looks like they reversed the Rhyno's...

I have never tried the Coyote. I wish that I had.

It's the Mako however, that ended up in my hands.

And I like it lots.


With so many, TOO MANY choices in the realm of discs, I may never have ever tried a Coyote.

I've been looking for a golf disc that behaves the way this one does (Mako) since I began playing.

This is one time where promotional gimmickry, coming out with something "new", got my attention.

And I found my disc.


If it was already out there, I couldn't see the tree for the forest...



Make mine Mako !
