For me at least the Fury will fade out after it turns, whereas I don't get that with the Underworld. The underworld holds a solid anny and doesn't come out at all. This could be a form flaw, and I've only thrown both a few times. I personally get a lot more distance with my fury then my underworld and 9 out of 10 times it will come out of the turn at the very end.

not a form thing, thats how the underworld flys. Just keeps turning and turning, like a longer fuse.

Finally got to throw my Fury today. Here's my take/early review:
White Gold Line 168g, fairly domey and a pretty flexy/gummy gold line run.
First, I love this disc! It flies fairly similar to my beat in Elite-X Cyclone only WAY longer. I had two of my longest calm condition drives with this thing today. For reference I throw with a Swedish style throw, coming from down low kind of like a hyzer flip. With my normal drive, and aiming for straight distance it bombed. It had a really nice S pattern flight. Nothing abrubt, and the turn portion was almost like a slide to the right similar to how a Comet would slide. On a distance line the fade is pretty healthy.
Releasing flat produced some really nice turnovers that basically held to the ground as long as I don't put too much air under it. Again the turnover was more of a nice slide to the right instead of a turn.
On an Anny, this baby holds all the way, and doesn't come out.
On big sweeping hyzers, it was a really cool flight I haven't really seen before. I threw one hole with a lot of hyzer, maybe 45* hyzer. It climbed in hyzer, started to flatten out pretty high up, maybe25-30ft. Flattened, slide right just a hair, came back flat still pennetrating forward, and then started fading off left, still penetrating forward. Easily the longest hyzer shot I have had. If you need a LONG hyzer and have room to work at the apex of flight, this disc is what you need!
So far I'm loving it, beat out my Saints (I'm one of the apparently very few that didn't like the high speed stability of the Saint). I want to get a max weight Opto next to see if it will hold low hard hyzers and see if it has a little more fade on low straight shots.
Sorry for the wall of text, but I know a lot of people are wondering about this diisc, and if it was worth it for Lat to make it. I say YES!

It is nice to hear that it isn't my form for once

My 167 GL Fury acts like a fresh Opto River for me. Probably a little longer but I'll test it against a 164 Opto River for reliable turnover shots. I'm curious what it will beat into...hoping for a beat River that isn't absurdly flippy.

This is a nice disc for turnovers because it doesn't turn out of the box. It starts for me about mid-flight and fades out at the end. I think Rivers come out a little turnier, but that could just be me.

I haven't thrown my Opto 167 on the course but it was surprisingly more understable during field tests. Usually Opto goes the other way.

Thank you for the feedback. I decided to order an Opto and Goldline. If it works out for me I will put it in the bag. If not I am sure i can trade it on the marketplace.

I got to throw it a bit at the Disc Nation disc demo this last weekend. It was pretty close to the LASERi for me. Long understable disc, that flies straight in a tailwind, but when powered will hold flat on long turnover. I did really like the first run stamp on the opto as well.

For those still wanting to feel the Fury

It is the Primediscs deal of the day. Gold Line Fury 10.69 http://www.primediscs.com/Latitude-6...f-Drivers.html

Turnier is my new favorite word to describe a disc turning!

I haven't got to throw mine much yet
But this now sounds like a new slightly longer opto vision?
