No. They have about the same distance.

im loving the underworld. I changed from a vision to it couple months ago. Fury sounds interesting though, hopefully it feels like an underworld but a little more stable. For me the underworld never hooks up, it just keeps turning and turning. Something very slightly more stable might be nice.

Cool, thanks. I'm pretty invested in the Underworld at this point, and head over heels with it, so I was wondering if the Fury could serve as a more long distance compliment. Sounds like I'll just stick with the Underworld.

Why do these have to sound so good? I just spent all my money on revamping my mid-range game! I must resist!

...anyone know when discgolfcenter will have these?

Flight report from a Gold Line Fury, 168 grams:
Threw my new Fury against some other discs today on a wide open course. Keep in mind I'm playing at 5000' altitude, so everything is a bit more stable up here in the thin air. I typically throw 330'
• Has a nice S-shaped flight path. Doesn't turn out immediately- has a nice gentle high speed turn, and seems to have a strong enough fade to prevent a turn and burn with a little wind. The shape of the flight path is most like a Leopard.
• I'd put the flight numbers at 8/6/-2/1, a notch longer than a River or Leopard. Maybe just a bit shorter than a Saint with almost as much glide as a Saint. A good driver choice when you can't get a good run-up.
• At this weight, it held against a 10 mph headwind. Wouldn't want to put it up against much more than that. More controllable than a Roadrunner in my opinion, with the same distance.
• The Fury is definitely longer than my TP Underworld, more stable than an Underworld (at least the single copy that I own), with a modest fade at the end that the Underworld seems to lack.
• Would pair nicely with a more stable Saint, such as one with a higher PLH or in Opto plastic. Of course there is a bit of variation, so you could probably end up with a stable Fury that flies a lot like an unstable Saint. I'm pairing mine with a Westside Stag and a Saint for my control drivers. This Scandinavian trio has replaced Innova TL and Leopard.
• The Fury somewhat duplicates one of the two Rivers I have. It overlaps with my flattop River which is understable and flippy. I have another River with a big dome which flies almost straight that I'll keep in my bag since it powers down so nicely.
• Seems like a great disc for non-windy days for those 800ish rating players.

Like the Fury but not sure where it would fit in my bag. I know the underworld is supposed to be speed 7 and the fury a 9 but I can get the underworld almost as far and it's not as nose angle sensitive as the fury has been so far. I think I'll probably just continue to wear in gold line saints and hit those straight lines instead of the slight s curve of the fury. I already have a lucid escape that does that shot better for me.

I'm hoping the Fury fits in between the Saints I have, which are all pretty stable still, and the Underworlds I have. That would cover every fairway shot I'd ever need.

I throw around 320-350. I found my 166 VIP underworld to be way to understable and angle sensitive. I threw both the Gl and VIp fury today. Threw around 340-380 today. Released flat and threw some lazer shots with predictable fade. Threw some nice hyzer flips with it as well. Definitely stayin in my bag. Both were not angle sensitive for me.

Also threw in 7-10 mph headwinds an it never turned over. Worked great.

Not sure. Mine is about the same but it wasn't on every throw. I got into it on a few and they were fine I just noticed it was easier for me to nose it up on a tailwind than my saint. Won't matter now I lost my beat in saint that I had since they released. I was pretty upset but I'm going to throw a fresh GL saint in the bag and keep the fury in there to practice with. It might just end up working. I loved that saint though. It was flat and dead straight in no wind.

Underworld is definitely flippy and these are just good turning control drivers. Still, I can get the same lines with almost the exact distance in everything but a strong tailwind. In that instance the fury really shows that it's near neutral.
