Sorry to keep flooding this thread, but every time I take the Fury out, I learn even more about it.

Today, I was able to put it on some awesome lines and got some of my longest drives with it. When I really clicked with it, the Fury went straight for about 60% of its flight, then had a late turn for the next 30% and faded back to finish just right of my release point. On sweeping anny lines it just holds the line all the way to the ground, unless given enough height to flex out.

The best part, though, is how forgiving I am finding it is. I have had trouble in the past with the River and the Saint where they would just climb into the air and stall out if I didn't have the nose angle right on release. I have had the same issue with the Fury, but instead of climbing and stalling, it will climb and keep gliding forward, almost working itself out of the bad release angle.

All in all, I am way too pumped on the Fury right now. If there is no wind, and I need a little wiggle, I am calling on it. Super versatile.

I've been digging the fury myself. And since I lost my favorite river a little bit ago I've been reaching for it more and more. I never thought I'd say this but in actually thinking about taking my other rivers out of my bag and just using my fury and beat TL for the US slots.

BTW Onemilemore: I see the pain and teebird are back in you signature.

The fury is probably going to be my next purchase. I've got a Fuse and a River. My river is very sensitive on OAT but when I hit it right it's a thing of beauty. My buddies River is what I want the River to be. His is juuuuust slightly more overstable than mine and allows a little forgiveness.

I ordered a Saint already and it should be here any day now but I already want a Fury. I absolutely love Opto plastic.

My thinking is that if my River is understable and the Saint is overstable, the Fury should be a laser beam for me.

Any idea how a 175g GL would fly from a 169 GL?

I would imagine the 169 would be more understable. I had 2 168's and lost them both. They were quite understable.

Has anyone noticed a difference between 1st run opto and reg. run opto?
And does weight affect this disc?
I have a 168 opto first run, that I lost for half of a tourney and was lost without it.
I got it back now, but am going to buy a back up.
Also thinking about getting a much heavier one

I just scored a beautiful yellow pearly Fury GL misprint, with the two printings at 90 degree angles.

Can't wait for the rains to end and give this a twirl!

I have its twin!

The Fury is sweet, but the late turn got me on my last hole today. Went out straight on my line, then turned straight into a tree. My Opto has started to wear in a little faster than I expected, so I need to start adding a little hyzer to it. But man, it is such a good disc and landed me in some great spots today otherwise.

I have both FR & Production 168g Furies in opto. They fly the same.

If you don't mind a silly little gram, both Community & Marshall have FR & Production available starting at 169g.

i bought another FR opto but its 174g
haven't thrown it yet, dont know if the 5g will affect the flight much
but i have been slowly moving up in weights as my throwing distance increases.
so, since its a back up, if and when i need it, i should be ready for a touch heavier disc
