Default I might regret asking - but ...

I recently lost a 1st Run Lat64 Fury and almost cried. I don't have much of a forehand so right curving fairways are tough. But when I threw that Fury flat it would do a beautiful slow right turn all the way to the ground. I'd used that disc for about two years and can't find a 1st run replacement. So I've ordered an Opto Fury hoping it will replace it but just in case . . . I'm open to recommendations for a slow turning speed 8-10 driver.

If it matters I'm over 55, throwing RHFH more than upshots hurts like H***, and my RHBH pretty much max out at 300-325.

Look at a Recycled Stag in a low weight, it may start more stable, but will beat in to exactly that.

My max distance is about the same, and for that shot I usually put a smidge of anny on a seasoned Star Valkyrie. A fresh DX Valk flies the same for me on a flat throw, but it'll probably get flippy before too long.

dga sail. get a proline easy turn over. I am in my mid 40s and like to hyzer flip stuff and the sail is great for that but when thrown smooth and flat it turns nicely.

155g or so Axiom Virus. I’m 51. It does all my right turn work.

Orion LS or JLS in Millennium plastic.
Star Sidewinder might work too.

Then again, if you like the Fury, buy two and start the cycle again!

I'm not much younger than you, my distances are similar to yours, and I bag a Fury. Not a first run, but I have a Gold Line Fury that is well-seasoned-in, and a backup for it. The Gold Line Fury will start out understable, and become more so with time and use. Your Opto Fury will also season in, though a little more slowly.

I also use my GL Fury for rollers, so if you get one and it starts getting flippy you can make it your roller disc and keep working that Opto Fury into understable sweetness.

A Neutron Relay might not be bad, though also might be a little slower than you're looking for.

And yes. On DGCR you ALWAYS regret asking!

i personally would go to pias or raid your box of used discs and try to find the flippiest most beat baseline plastic disc in there that is around speed 9

or you know you could work on your fh form

Speed 10: Inertia.
Speed 9: Falk
Speed 8: Mantis

Subjective numbers compared to the Innova standards.

All have a slow turn and will fly stable when powered down.
All can hold the turn to the ground, at speed or with anhyzer
