Years ago, probably around March 2015, I lost my favorite purple Opto Trident in the woods at Perkerson. park in Atlanta. I was super bummed and tried to buy a few more but after some bad luck and the release of the Justice, I gave up Tridents.

A couple of weeks ago this guy texts me out of the blue. He’s found my Trident and mailed it to me. It looks almost exactly the same and he found it on the hold I lost it on. So it’s been basically unmoved for almost five years, I haven’t gotten to throw it yet, but I do wonder if after all this time I’ll still like it.

I did it! After 4 years of being lost, I found the disc that started my torrid love affair with Tridents, my original purple opto I had lost at Giles.
I had looked for it almost every time I've played that course at least 10-15 minutes and yesterday was just my lucky day. It flies just as well as the day I lost it.

That looks almost exactly like the purple Opto I had lost

I really like the yellow flat translucent opto ones. They feel really good for forehand and have a nice stand up with the late fade. I am glad I have a stack of them

The only Trident I have is root beer. I like throwing it, but my friends hate looking for it, so it usually stays at home.
