Feels strange throwing like that for something that will turn out nothing like a hyzer in the air, but it's a super cool flight. Really great mold.

I have been tossing both GL and Opto for the Fury at 169 grams. The Underworlds are VIP and TP at 172. The Fury is a little more stable than the Underworld but not to the point that it pulls out of anhyzers early.

I think hyper flipping is where you throw the disc so hard it does a barrel roll

Excellent! I'm running the same weight gap, with the Fury's coming in a little lighter at 167g.

Now, if I could just get a more consistent (i.e. non dirt-dart) anhyzer release...

When I want to muscle up on the Fury I put a little hyzer on the release then lay into it and watch it pop up to flat and then take off. I have been pulling off some really nice long shots in tight wooded areas with my Fury. It just takes time to get use to it. I don't have a powerful arm so discs on the more under stable side are my best bet for distance. Just take your time and don't give up on it you will be rewarded with some great shots.

I have been throwing the Fury and Underworld A LOT. I have found that I have more consistant anhyzers with the Underworld when I power it down and focus on being smooth; the disc does the work for me. (and I don't have a gun for an arm to begin with)
Take your discs to a field and change things up when you practice. Not just angles and releases, but power levels also.

Thanks for the reminder tip! I have a tendency to throw too hard leading to OAT induced dirt-darting.

Must remember the smooth 80% (or less) power throws...

Threw Valkyries outta the bag. I can LAUNCH these puppies.

For a more productive review: optos are much flippier than GL. Note flippy opto was a yellow FR. Dead straight GL was an orange FR.

Just curious, is there a Parting Line Height (PLH) difference on the two discs?

I've found with Diamonds that yellow (both OPTO and RGL) discs have slightly lower PLH than orange discs; red is an even bigger difference...
