I finally watched the show and I don't think the Mako looked bad, I think it showed the difference between the Mako and Jackal Ghost.
Mako definitely looked more angular than the Ghost and it forced Dom and Mitch into a spot of over/under because of the strength of the cover. T
The Ghost, Chronic Paranoia, Alpha Crux, and IQ Nano were all smoother than the Mako. Quintero switched to a Code Black that was angular but the weaker cover had a much better look than the Mako
