Got a chance to throw the Fury again last night (GL, 167g) and I was excited that it threw very much like a well-seasoned DX Teebird for me - which is one of my favorite go-to drivers for controlled distance (325-350' .. max D driving is ~390-400'). I am thinking about moving away from carrying cycled DX 'birds and carrying a Fury instead (probably between 169-172g) since it will theoretically stay how I like it for longer.

My question is, would I want to pair it w/ a similar weight Saint for straighter shots that don't turn as much and can handle headwinds better? Any thoughts?

I pair my Fury with a Striker. It makes a good combo. I dont know if anyone agrees with me on this or not but I feel the Striker is a little more stable than a Saint. So to me I have less overlap with my Fury.

Well, the reason I ask is I carry anywhere between 2-3 DX 'birds in various wear for various shots depending on the situation. I don't mind having a bit of over-lap in my bag ('cause it holds plenty! ) and was thinking about carrying Fury/Saint/Champ Teebird as opposed to slightly season DX 'bird, moderately/heavily seasoned DX 'bird and the Champ Teebird stays the same for heavier headwinds and hyzer lines.

Saints handle headwinds a little better than they Fury but can still get pushed around. A Stag in VIP would pair nicely with the Fury. When I was tossing the Stag it handled a decent headwind. It would get pushed by the wind a little but still fade out at the end. It could be just me but I never had much luck with saints in a decent headwind. If you still want to try a Saint for that spot I would recommend a Opto Saint on the heavier side.

I am trying out a Fury/Tsunami setup. I'll post on the results when I can get a feel for it. The Tsunami may be a little too stable but I want my stable counterpart to be dependable.

Played in some sustained windy (15+ MPH) conditions this weekend and observed the same...

A GL Fury would turn-over in a headwind and begin a slow forward glide to the ground. A GL Saint would "slide" but not turn-over. A little hyzer-release seemed to help in both cases!

The TP Stag did well when thrown low and flat into the headwind. The normally strong (dumping) fade was transformed into a Saint-like forward fade.

The fury is the real deal. Not too understable, the hss is nice on this disc. The opto is dead nuts for me on about an 80% throw. Almost no fade at all. The gold line is a tricky little devil, but with some more work i thing it can stick around too.

I am worried for my saints.... The fury flies like I would want a beat saint to fly, but the saint gets too squirrelly and the fade is still in my main saint after 2 years of use. I trust my saint more downhill, but the fury is just too fun.

Stag fury underworld is proving to be stellar for me.

Proline Tsunamis will beat in some, so that pairing makes sense to me. I could see a SP Tsunami/Proline Tsunami/GL Fury setup.

I have a 169 fury, but that thing is a flip machine for me . . . i have for a niche for it, though. i've got maybe 350-380 in me for distance, tops, so i just hyzer flip it as hard as i can into the sky and watch it sail a looooooooooong way.

i keep my fury for turnovers and easy distance, my striker for lazer beam straight shots and hyzer, and my river for line shaping/s-curve distance.

i really love my striker the best out of the three; that disc is just soooo straight.

anybody else have the problem i've got with the fury? it really is only good for me with a LOT of room, like an open field.

I have a flat top SP Tsunami now. It's probably about ESP Pred stable right now. Knocked my Z Preds out of the bag because they were more than I needed. I would like to get my hands on a beat in Proline Tsunami and a newish Proline Tsunami. I think it could be a really good pairing.
