I looked at Warwicks, MIA Fenders, and Spectors. This bass is just as good if not better then all of those "High End" basses. It has features like string-thru bridge and quilted maple body that are found on many very expensive basses. If the Peavey Fury basses are so good then I can't even imgagine how good the Peavey Cirrus series is!!!

21 Fret solid maple neck w/ Rosewood fingerboard. Quilted maple body. With transparent finish (available in sunburst, blue or red).
2 VFL internally active pickups . 3-Band active EQ.
Active, Bass, Mid, and Treble controls.
Satin chrome hardware.
The Fury V has one of the fastest and comfortable necks on any 5 string at any price. The neck has a great feel as you move your hand up and down, and all over the fingerboard.
I play with the action low and it puts out great sustain (due to the string-thru body). This bass is a real players bass, and is comprable in feel and playability to Warwick,Fender and Musicman!
I plugged my Peavey through a fender bassman 100 and a Peavey Firebass head with a 410tvx cab. It delivered very powerful lows and piercing highs through both amps. I used this bass in both my hardcore metal band and my big band Jazz/Funk Ensamble. In my hardcore band during the slap breakdowns this bass had amazing punch. The notes rang clear cross the room. In my Jazz/Funk ensamble the Fury V provided me with nice smooth lows and clear cut highs. There is no hum at all. It sounds just as good if not better then my Warwick Corvette Proline (a bass well over $1000). The stock pickups sound great however I am thinking of upgrading to EMGs because I am planning on keeping this bass a long time!
Built like a tank. I have had this bass for over a year now and it hasn't needed a setup yet (knock on wood)! the neck is great the bridge is amazing, everything about this bass is amazing!
I think this is a perfect bass when you have only 500$, everything is ok except colors and useless controls.

I had a good feeling with it, it is not too heavy and big for a 5 string, not too hard to go from 4 to 5
Big sound, can play warm or metallic sound.

Cheap, but good sounding electronics, all pasive
I couldn't ask for more at that price, I like the playability of the bass
Well, good, I use for a lot of styles, and that's why I say "Good"
Well, I've had it for 6 months now and it still sounds like new
I looked at a squier bass which was $170 cheaper. It just felt weird and unsteady
Price: $450.00 (new)
I'm not sure of the details, so I'll just say what I know. It has a rosewood fingerboard and a green transparent finish on the body. It has active electronis with volume tone and 3 EQ knobs. It has a Strat body.
The neck's pretty wide so I've got a bit of a hard time reaching the 5th string. Everything else is fine
I use it with a Peavey TKO 115 Amp and it works great. I don't have any effects, but I'm keeping my eye out for sales. I just got it a month or so ago so I haven't played enough to say music genres and whatnot. In the beginning my Knobs caused static, but they don't anymore
Very solid. I've accidently wacked it a few times on doors, wall, my amp, and my sisters head(yes that one was an accident two). It's still like new
