The local grass roots disc seller pointed me in the direction of the Fury as a beat longer teebird, meaning not much fade. He let me have a few downwind shots with a pink 175 opto around 300' with less than 10' height and the Fury almost hit the basket on each throw. Throwing back into the 10mph wind wasn't as predictable but I'm looking to pick up a used Fury and give it a good testing. I normally throw a seasoned qjls for tunnel shots and was able to do a side by side with the Fury. My QJ needed several feet to allow for the fade back to the basket on that low line and a lot more power where as the Fury was point and shoot and would hit the ground with almost no fade. I gave the Fury a harder rip downwind with less than 15' height and a couple more degrees hyzer and it preformed the same line as before but easily flew well past the basket, without fade or burning out, to 350'.

I've never tried the River but have a 168 tournament Underworld that gets way squirrely over 300' power. If rivers and underworlds are similar I think I'll pass on trying out a river as I can flick further for turn way right shots with much more confidence.

I haven't thrown the Underworld but the Fury is longer, faster, more HSS and LSS and a little less gliding than the River. The Fury is a pretty straight disc but loses out in distance to the Beast while being about as straight and stable. With the admittedly limited testing with my GL Fury it seems to range pretty linearly unlike the River that needs 100 % power to get to 100 % distance and if you give it 97 % power it will fade out to 90 % D so in that respect for my power level at least the Fury is the better disc. For anything but the straightest flights.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Underworld is way more understable than a River. I wouldn't compare those.

Underworld is close to barrel roll understable for me.

If anyone cares, Fury and Underworld are unthrowable molds to me. Rivers I can command, though they are still understable, but they will fly far. Stag's and newer Saint's are pretty awesome. Escape's are pretty sweet too. I forget what DD's flippy driver was called again but I was actually able to get a few good tosses out of a new one of those too. Very interested with the Truth right now to be honest...

I agree, I bought a Fury hoping for a longer leo, but the thing just dumps right unless I'm throwing with a tail wind. Powered way down it won't flip, but it's super touchy and not at all what I was hoping for. I had the same experience with the Bolt. Just burned instead of turning. The Renegade is a much better turning driver imo. Just a little longer than I was looking for.

went to a local course today JUST for minis (since i dont have any) and the guy behind the counter showed me the new to them LAT 64 line. i thought the plastics were gorgeous in the gold line, and he and i struck a deal for a few free rounds of golf and a mini if i got 3 discs. sure (while i know its not the deal of the century, i liked his salesmanship. and i was going to get the mini anyway)

i came home since i wasnt prepared to play today, and tossed the Flow, Bolt and Pain (just because of the name) out in the school field and man, the Bolt is impressive! for me, with a flat standard throw it flies right then stalls and comes back to the left. all in all, it seems to stay within 2 disc widths when flying, and ends up within a disc width or so of what you pointed it at.

so basically it makes a slow right curve to a semi quick left turn, an overall "S" and ends up basically in a straight line.

the other 2, well im still out on them. they both seem to fly well, but with a hard hyzer at the end. pretty hard left hook, so im going to work on them and see where that gets me.

Wow my Fury GL silver is much more HSS than that but my Bolt is one of the most understable discs i have ever thrown and unusable because of it. My Fury is more HSS than my Rivers from two years back. I heard that they made very flippy Rivers last year. The Fury does flip a few degrees but only a few at 400' power with warp speeders.

I tend to agree. I've pared my bag down to just absolute necessities and haven't bothered to even try replace lost discs. My favorite disc so far this year is the Bite. I have weird dreams about playing with an oversized messenger bag filled with an UltraStar, a Bite, a SuperHero and a Zephyr. Strangely I think Chuck Kennedy is right about superclass.

Just got River/Flow/Pure/Fury in my DD misprint pack. Not sure what I'll do with these. Really wanted an Escape. Oh well.

Putting in a mid will give you a bag :-D Not a bad one mind you although it won't shine on windy days.

The misprint pack as a whole is pretty playable, but on the understable side. Westside contribution is: Underworld/Warship/Tursas. DD was Renegade/Suspect/Judge. The disc I wanted most was not included. :cry: :x
