That being said I don't think I have any Tridents that aren't flat?

I really wish the Trident was in stock somewhere other than Infinite. I want to try one, but don't want to pay S&H for a single disc. Infinite was great as a beginner when purchasing 5 or more discs at a time, but it's a hastle once you've settled into what you like to throw.

There are two main ones I’ve seen that aren’t flat. The last run of stock Opto(had a ton of x outs) at slightly domey. Also have seen some GL that have a good bit of shoulder and then Puddle top.

There were some pretty early optos that had enough dome that they had a heart beat, however I only ever found red ones in the low 170's that were like this.

Infinite only has stock of Tridents because they paid Lat 64 to run them. It's kind of like the Dealer/Manufacturer relationship with cars. I'll pay them a little more to have had that good run.

That being said the S&H from infinite is killer. I normally bundle up with a bunch of friends of mine just as addicted to buying discs.

Most OS is the spin dye from TylerC, I wasn't throwing it for the longest time since it wasn't easily replaceable.
MF opto is next best and ITB currently.
Moonshines are a nice starting stability, but beat in pretty quick.
Gold line burst is OK but can turn in a headwind
Retro starts off stable and beats in turn quick
Gold Goldline and Purple Opto are hyzerflip machines.

Some do have some shoulder mentioned earlier but it's not noticeable to me

Not pictured are two lost at Giles run, a moonshine that was starting to turn and my original and favorite purple OS opto

The Latitude store has Opto-x Chameleon Tridents. They look pretty spectacular but I'm not paying $25+shipping for it, that's one pricey disc!
I threw my Infinite sparkle Opto into a pond this weekend, hopefully it returns to me one day.

I don't understand why they don't just bring the Trident back into regular production. Plenty of people throw them. I just started throwing them last year. I can't believe what I was missing. But yeah, I'll wait for the price to come down before trying a chameleon opto x.

Agreed. I bag Zones and a PDx for beef. I've often thought that a Trident-like disc would better split the gap between Zone and PDx, but I don't want to rely on a limited run/OOP disc. I bag a Felon there instead (although lately I've been skipping the OS fairway slot altogether). I would prefer something slower than a Felon.

I would say the Trident is definitely less stable than a fresh Felon.

Luckily for established Trident throwers, Infinite realized people will still buy these and has gotten Latitude to create at least 3 runs and since they seem to like money I can see it staying in semi production with Infinite bankrolling it moving forward.
