I threw my buddies Fury once today...didn't seem any more high speed understable than my Saints, but had waaaaayyy less fade. My buddy throws with just a little less power than me and was getting just dead straight ahoys with it. Like, no fade. It was like he was throwing a Lib 250-300 feet. Pretty cool.

Id like to give it more throws to see...one throw is a pretty poor sampling of a new disc. I will say it feels very Saint-ish in the hand, however. Its a 171g first run, Pink GL, foe the record.

Threw my Red 167g OPTO and Yellow 165g GL for 30 minutes. For me, it is a sweet and easy upgrade from the Diamond (my primary driver) to a "non-beginner" disc. Very straight, flat, low fade flier.

Interested to hear some more Saint comparisons. Even with my 250 ft. of power, I could turn over the GL on a good rip and the OPTO would "slide" a little in a playful headwind...

To those who have thrown these, do they fly like a longer Cyclone or Eagle? I like my Saint but it's just a little too high speed stable for my throwing style. A longer Cyclone with the glide of a Saint would be mint.

If this is in fact a less fade saint, then it is the disc I'm looking for and that makes me happy. I use two rivers, but I use them for powered down drives. I have been looking for a compliment to the striker I have, which has a slight turn and a decent fade.

You might try a vision
Same as a saint - almost
Little less HSS and about the same Fade.
basically a Saint for noodle arms.

Thanks! I'll try that! How do the max weight Opto Visions fly? Stable enough to take the place of the less stable versions of the Saints?

With my noodely arm, a 165g GL Fury flies a similar line to an 163g X Cyclone. Straight off of a shallow hyzer-flip with lots more glide, leading to a longer and shallower fade...
