Ordered a Purple Goldline Fury 172g this past week and had the opportunity to field test it today. I was surprised that the disc I received was quite flexible, even more so then my gold line river, nearly flx plastic flexibility. I don't have a huge arm but with 5-10 degrees of hyzer the disc flipped up and turned just slightly before evening out and landing with minimal fade, a fairly straight flight landing at about 345 feet consistently. I was quite happy with the flight and looking forward to working with it more soon!

Agong noodle arm checking in. I bought a 173 GL and a 171 Opto Fury to goof around with on vacation this week. Threw the GL a hadful of times today and was very impressed. It has great glide and kind of a second gear my Rivers don't have. Jury is still out, but it seems like a slightly faster River at thisoint with exceptional glide. I'll throw it at least a few more rounds this week and see how it goes, but it is really bice so far.

Hey sloppy! Loving the Fury myself. It's definitely a great finesse fairway driver. I think it's not quite as sensitive as the River and thus makes it a little bit more forgiving and overall more useful for a greater range of shots.

I want to give it a try in opto. I feel like I like my opto rivers better, and I'm wondering if this will be the same.

I'll throw my Opto later this week, and give you a noodle arm report. IF the courses I hit have any good holesmto throw it on.

I'm curious to the findings as well, I'm another noodle arm myself, I'm really digging the Saint as a straight disc with a mild fade at the end. I hear the Fury is the same except with a fade to the right. I lost my Underworld, which was WAY to flippy for me. I'm hoping an Opto Fury will be what I am looking for.

its more hss than the gold line and the lss is about the same. I can put more on the opto and it will be less likely to turn for me. i prefer the opto cause of the exrtra stability.

I threw my 168 Opto today on a couple holes. It went dead straight nuts to the tune of about 300' on one hole and about 325' on the other. Too bad that second one was a slight dog leg that only need about 275' of straight before the fade. Oops. Nice disc so far. Great straight disc to about 300-325' of power. After that my guess is the big turns start, but it is nice for us old guys.

I traded for 3 Fury's yesterday

I wanted something less stable than the Saint and longer than the River

Hopefully this mold is it...my locl shop didn't have Underworlds or I might have gone with those.

Reading this thread to get an understanding of this disc was painful...the first 20 some odd pages should just be trashed

In any event I got 3 Gold Line one of which is a FR
They have some significant dashing on that I plan on taking off
Hopefully I get some throws in this weekend
