Well this sounds promising. So then I may be able to get a light gl Fury for the x Cyclone like flight and a heavy Opto Fury for a heavy ESP Cyclone flight? Could be my dream driver... Anyone thrown a heavy Opto Fury yet?

my Opto vision is very close to my GL saint only a touch less HSS and a touch less Fade
very close-just more noodle arm friendly
partly because the vision is one speed slower 8 vs. 9

I would say vision = valk (slower than valk though)

Not to derail the thread, but I threw Cyclones for a while, and my lighter Tournament Stag is exactly this: the line of a Cyclone, but better, easier distance due to the awesome glide.

Just ordered a 167 GL. Hope it can become my understable/turnover driver. If it works out I'll be looking for some Optos for that tick of stability.

Have you thrown a VIP Underworld? I only have a few throws in with mine and have a Fury on the way. The VIP Underworld seems to have nice smooth turn to it, without much fade.

I can't say enough good things about the Underworld: awesome, versatile turnover driver, and the VIP handles the wind surprisingly well.

No I haven't thrown the Underworld. Haven't thrown anything Westside I don't believe. Maybe I'll check it out sometime...
