sorry i havent read through the entire thread but im very curious about this disc.. been throwing my Rivers again but just not flippy enough yet but hope to get them there.. so is the Fury like a understable river? I throw and LOVE Sidewinders but if i can get a SW type flight with more glide from the Fury i may be sold.. I dont have much power more of a finese player.. if thrown flat will it have any turn?

I found that it has a later turn, not an imediate turnover. Flies wonderful for a finese thrower. I was not in love with the river, it has to have much cleaner form to be thrown consistantly omgish; the Fury is much more forgiving and it sounds cooler.

I've seen it compared more to the Saint than the River. River is speed 7, Saint and Fury are both 9. Fury and River both have -2 turn, whereas Saint is -1.

More understable Saint. Faster River.

I would have to agree with EL-KABONG: if you're looking for a more US River, the Underworld is what you seek: about the same speed as the River (maybe a mild tick slower), same monster glide, but more turn. I've only thrown a Fury a few times, but it struck me as being definitely faster than the River - a solid speed 9. Didn't have a significant amount of turn for me on my trial throws (though it was an Opto).

For what it's worth, I had the same sense of the River that you do: loved its speed, glide, and distance potential, but wanted more turn. The Underworld was exactly what I sought. Awesome anny and turnover potential. The Rivers recently made their way back into my bag in the form of heavy Optos, providing a nice stable compliment to my Stags and Underworlds.

Can anyone compare the gold line fury to opto? Love my optos wondering if the gold line will offer something different.

I don't think so
I have both in the bag. I think my FR Opto might be slightly more understable but I could be imagining that
My Opto is quite gummy and grippy.
I think I reach for my GL more often simply because it is a bright pearly pink vs the orange that is my opto

Nailed it, on every point made.
Plus, I also just like to say - FURY
