I was giving the Fury another try today. Throwing a 170 Opto and comparing it to a slightly beat Lucid Escape. The Fresh Opto Fury seemed to be a tick more HSS than the Escape which really surprised me. There was a very mild headwind, which may be the cause. As much as I love the Escape, it's a turning driver with any wind. Also, the Fury is absolutely fresh and should show some initial break in before long.

You might try a Hatchet, mine has the same or more HSS and a little more LSS than my Fury

If you can already throw a Saint the way it's supposed to fly, DO NOT get a Fury any lighter than said Saint. I love my 171g Saints and thought the Fury would be similar with a bit more turn. Well, my 168g Opto Furies were waaay flippier than anticipated straight out of the package. (Yes, I had two of them so it definitely wasn't a fluke in the mold.) I gave one to my sister and one to my girlfriend, both of whom have speed 6-7 arms, and they S-curve them a mile. I'm not a big fan of "turnover" discs, so these had no chance to end up in my bag.

Second this for sure. Hatchet is a lot like a Sidewinder with extra glide.

Hatchets are great for reliable turn. Thrown cleanly and flat and they will turn all day without flipping over.

My Fury is still a mystery. Way beefier than I expect, much more stable than the Hatchet. Basically flies like a Saint or Escape. Turns into a wind, fairly straight on a calm day and tons of glide. Sailing past my S-line TDs.

I have pulled the Fury from my bag and replaced it with the Underworld.
I really like this disc but lately we haven't been getting along.
The shallow plus rim was always coming out early, and can just get a better grip on the Underworld.
