Default Fury vs Valkyrie

Giving some thought to replacing my Star Valk with a Fury. I am not a hard thrower and think the additional glide that the Fury has might give me a little more distance. I haven't decided on Gold line vs Opto and started another thread asking about the differences.

Has anyone thrown both discs? Is there enough of a difference to make the change worthwhile or am I just wasting time thinking about this?

I used to throw a Valk earlier in my game. (It's a good disc)
When I picked up a GL Fury last year, it was one of the discs that I had been looking for for a long time.
Was the perfect flight for my power/style right out of the box.

What weights did you throw in each disc? My Valk is 171g and I am thinking of going a bit lighter, maybe 168.

For me, the Valk goes out straight, maybe a bit of a slight turn and fades consistently back. How does the flight of the Fury compare to the Valk for your use?

Finally, I'm assuming it is useless in a headwind since it is so under stable?

Thanks, sorry for so many questions.

My GL Fury is exactly at 168g.
I had (actually still do) an old 4x JK Valk (was max weight, 175) that got beaten in to a hyzerflip machine that I couldn't control at the time. I'd say that the Fury is a bit more on the stable side of the Valk of mine.
And yes, a headwind is dangerous to throw in with either.
I prefer a *Destroyer for headwind driving duties.
All of this is only my opinion though, there are others on here more suited to advise you.

valk is more forgiving and stable (neutral). fury is a finesse disc, put some mustard on it and its not going to handle it well but thrown at like 75% it is a hyzer flip machine

My experience is that a GL is what you want. Unlike most L64 molds, my optos are *significantly* more flippy than my GLs at the same weight (168/172/174).

The Fury can be hard to dial in. I had one in the bag for awhile but went back to the Valk.

i carry the saint pro, saint, fury combo (with the hatchet thrown in there)
this covers most shots, and has replaced my stack of different weight and plastics valks
when the hatchet gets seasoned up well, it will replace the fury

I have both (Star Valk and GL Fury), and both are in my bag. Both are great. The *Valk is straight in technical conditions before fading off. The Fury is a bit more understable for me; I throw the Fury uphill and when I'm tired and don't want to throw as hard.
