I think you're good to try the Trident first and see if it fits your needs. While trying my new Lat64 stuff, I've been throwing that in place of my Z Hornet, but the Trident is a little longer and fades harder for me. If the Trident doesn't work out, then I'd recommend a Z Hornet. It feels similar to my GL Pain, but not quite as deep on the rim. Really, it feels virtually identical to a Z Buzzz to me.
About the skip potential of the Trident...if it hits the ground at semi-flat angle, it'll skip like crazy.
