Default Fury vs Escape

Step on up, don't be shy, opine away. I've enjoyed my escapes, river and pro leopard. Felt like underworld was too flippy. I throw escape 320-375. Trying to figure out if I need a fury.

What kind of flight paths are you getting out of the discs you mentioned? It seems like there would be some overlap for sure, unless you had an escape that was straight with fade, a river that was just straight and a leo that was very flippy. I'd say pick Leopard, River or Fury.

I throw a Saint about the same distance you do, and I use an Opto Fury for my Anhyzer disc. I do like it a lot it doesn't take much at all to get it to turn, it can be a little touchy, but NO WHERE near as touchy as the Underworld. A breeze could blow on my bag and my Underworld would turn and burn.

Escapes and Furys go great together. When I carry my 9 max bag, those are my primary drivers. Underworld gets shorter shots needing more turn. My Fury is not that understable really, and is very long.

Really want to try a Bandit though.

That's what I want to see. I suspect the Bandit will be longer.

Escapes are a tad more overstable than Saints, so there is not a lot of overlap with a Fury there. Or maybe it's better to say the Escape has a more reliable fade. Never threw the Underworld although I have one at home as a present for someone in need of a flippy disc. He actually has a Fury and it just doesn't turn enough for him on some shots. I use my Saint for those shots and a healthy portion of bad form :P
It sounds like you could try a Fury if the Underworld is too flippy and the Escape not enough.

I started this thread because I have had underworld bagged but could only throw it at 50 - 65% power(this felt uncomfortable different from throwing other discs). I had a pro leopard that I also had to throw it softer (usually used it for straight tunnel shots and some LTR backhand). My saints (a number of goldlines) threw grew except into a headwind and to a one have become flippy. I liked them for longer straight shots. They always fade at absolute end of flight. My escapes need to be thrown soft with slower armspeed into a headwind. They bomb in calm or with a tailwind. The preferred flight trajectory of this disc is a RTL backhand. If thrown right, on slight hyzer they fly 320 - 375 for me. Not super far, but respectable.

Some people in this forum seem to absolutely rave about fury. I didn't exactly understand why it was awesome in relation to escape.

Is the consensus that the fury is a better turnover/ anhyzer disc than the escape? If so, does it pan out at end of flight or are cut rollers common?

Thanks again...

OPTO Saint is my go to driver
I have a moonshine escape for glow rounds
They (saint and escape) are almost the same for me

OPTO Fury is my long easy turnover that straightens out to flat at the end, or straight with very little/no fade disc.
These are both still kind of fresh, I expect them to season into straightflippy for the saint, and very understable all the way to the ground for the fury.
But that should be a while.
