The inbounds flight guide covers the flight of the Trident almost perfectly. I have not thrown or seen thrown a mid-range with a bigger fade and a HSS of 0.

The Whippet probably has a harder fade but its HSS is +1 for a normal power thrower, giving it more of a "C" shape flight instead of the Tridents upside down "L" shape

If you are scared of the skip you shold probably avoid the disc though, because it is unavoidable. It doesn't work for me as an apprach disc because of this, however I throw putters for approaches anyway. I use the Trident on holes where I specifically want a skip. I will say though, it is a predictable skip so you just have to adjust your aim. Or, you can throw the disc at a steeper hyzer angle and it won't skip much

The Gold Line Trident is easily one of my favorite discs in my bag.
