My god it was a thing of BEAUTY! Perfect narrow S-Curve that just kissed the right side foliage and came back to the pin. BOOM!

fury has won for me over the underworld. its just more trustworthy and the glide makes it easy to dial down the power and still get some great distance.

FURY throwers, I'd like to know, which plastic is "better" for hyzer flipping to a dead straight shot? Opto or GL?
Also, does a Fury compare at all to a 175g star sidewinder? This is what I use for a hyzer flip to straight shot.

thanks!

I actually replaced my Star sidewinder with a GL fury. I had been throwing sidewinders for years but I got a hold of the fury and knew from day one I wasn't looking back. The are about the same speed and the fury has more glide, because the extra glide I feel like its a lot more controllable and works right to left shots (RHBH) easier and stays straighter on hyzer flips. It's surprisingly not very nose angle sensitive at all, very easy disc to throw. And surprisingly long sometimes. Get one and you won't regret it!

now that's a good response! Now I'm VERY interested in a GL fury...
Do you think that extra glide makes the fury worse in the wind vs a star sidewinder?
My sw isn't great in winds but it can still hang with correct form.

The Furies I have thrown do not like headwind at all. But if you power them down with hyzer, they seem to go a long way relatively straight.

Cool, you're talkin like 80% power?
Any reason why it's not in your sig/bag?

Well it would depend on your power level. Your 80% may be different then my 80%. I would throw mine at about 60% for a 350ft throw in low/moderate wind. In tailwind however I could mash on it. But the reason for it not being in my bag now is that I lost two within about 3 weeks, and I liked my River better. I found the River to be more controllable and versatile for me personally. With all that said however, I was throwing a 168 and a 169. So take that into account too.

so was it too flippy for you at that weight?
did you lose it from flipping it unintentionally?

I wouldn't say it was TOO flippy. I'm sure if I thought out my shots better with it it would have been fine. I think that if I wasn't so attached to Rivers I would try a heavy Opto and see how that went. But I lost it throwing big anhyzers with it. Like the kind that the hole doesn't even call for. It was too fun. I couldn't help it.
