Default Fury vs. Amp

I know, I know...people hate these threads, but I am really having a hard time choosing.

For reference, I throw LHBH and RHBH. Make drives are around 380. I throw PDs and Rogues as my other drivers. Stalkers and Preds for Fairway shots. Lost my River and Leo.

Thanks for helping me make decisions.

I carry both. I find the Fury(Opto) to be a bit less understable than the Amp and somewhat longer with more glide. I use the Fury more as a downwind distance driver, and the Amp for specific LtoR lines. I'll allow my Amp to see trees. My Fury isn't getting near a tree.

Haven't thrown the Fury but I got nothing but love for the Amp. I would suggest picking this disc up, it took me awhile to fully appreciate the disc but now that I do, it's fantastic. It's an understable disc that can truly fight the wind. Thrown flat and the disc goes out to the right and ends with a small fade, slight anhyzer and the thing booms to the right before coming back ever so slightly. It's perfect for what I want. Hope that helps.

I find my amp to be GREAT for when i need a disc to do the opposite of what a disc is supposed to do RHBH, i get a turnover that looks like i threw LHBH when really i throw RHBH, its a strange thing.

I gave an amp to my left handed buddy and he hits lines left handed that i hit right handed with my Volt.

The amp is very easy to control for tight turnovers, it can go straight for a bit before it turns, which is what i look for and REALLY like compared to some other under-stable fairways out there.

The amp has a little less glide than something like a river, but i also like that because it adds more control and wind resistance to your arsenal.

If you have the money, get both and pick one after a few rounds, then sell the other one on the market place.

oh yea, like all MVP fairways, it will have a bit more of a shallow rim, which i like for easy releases and since the rims are the same on all the MVP fairways it makes it easy to quickly pick up on a Volt or Shock in the future if you want to try more MVP, which i know you will once you try an Amp

It depends on what you want these discs to do.

I have a 169g GL Fury and a 171g Neutron Amp. The Fury is easier to turn and will fade back less. I can get my Fury to hold an "anhyzer" line a lot farther then I can with the Amp. But the Amp will fly straighter and have a more predictable fade. Fury definitely has more glide (IMO)

I am using the Fury as my US Fairway while the Amp sits in my trunk. I am using a Lucid Escape as my stable Fairway - for today..... Next time I shank the Escape I will probably switch.

At your power level both are going to turn. I would use them for downwind or controlled turning shots - but there might be overlap a different combination wouldn't have

The Fury is effortless to throw on numerous lines. Glide for days. In my brief experience with the Amp, it took more effort to do the same.

At the same time, it depends on your throwing style. The Fury is a finesse disc and likes a smooth toss. If you throw with sheer power then the Amp might be better.

I can't believe this hasn't gotten more of a response from MVP fanboys. I will say, the Fury is sounding sweeter and sweeter.

IMO if you want truly understable the amp won't be that disc for flippy shots. Its a great hyzer-flip or slow turn-over disc but not really understable enough IMO to consider it consistently workable like many similar compared fairway drivers. There are many times it would be nice if the amp was a few speeds slower. Something about the unique low speed fade which makes the amp different and really a good as well as bad thing about it.
