Default Latitude 64 Trident.

I'd be curious to know how many of you throw the Trident. For me, its perfect for 200-250ft. I contacted Latitude to find out if they'd be making a Test Material Trident, since my D-Zone breaks in so well and flies super straight when banged up a bit, I figured a test-material Trident would be amazing.

Thoughts? Any trident lovers out there, or am I the only one?

Who needs a test material fuse... seriously? I can't imagine what a beat up fuse would do. It'd be like a boomerang.

I just added the Trident to my bag for the exact same thing. It's a great short range meathook driver. It's quickly shoving the Drone out as a short backhand hyzer disc.

ME. Best right turning mid I've ever thrown. As for the Trident, well, never threw it. I carried a XXX for a long time for FH & short BH that needed a big skip

The Trident for me was like a glorified Drone in supreme plastic. However, since it could not get driver distance I converted to the XXX. What the Trident did best was thumbers. Its blunt nose would cause it to hit the ground, flop like a fish, but never bounce it more than six or so feet from the point of impact. Most other discs I have tried throwing thumbers with had a tendency to get up on edge and roll. Not the Trident and the XXX.

Fit about the same spot as my banshee so it wasn't a huge loss.

I had a trident that I lost as well. It constantly fought with my Z drones for the spot in my bag. About the same distance, same ridiculous skip potential.

I have a few forehanding buddies that swear by them. The XXX has a straight flight with hard fade, where as the Trident starts the fade action much sooner. I have a new flat top 12x Firebird that acts like the Trident or I'd get one. The Trident has quite a skip to it.

I don't know if I have a freak Trident or XXX, but my XXX is waaaaay more overstable than my Trident. My Trident flies pretty straight then has its fade at the end, almost like a new Champ Teebird.

I don't remember who explained it to me, but it was right - the Trident (or mine, at least) flies in the shape of a tall L, whereas the XXX flies in a curved shape, like a C.

Most likely a freak. I beat the hell out of my Trident from all the thumbers I threw with it and I have to lay into it with some considerable over the top OAT to make it fly straight (or at least the appearance of it) for any period of time. Because it does not glide as well as the XXX, I did not like doing this because most of the time I am just throwing it into the ground. What it was best at was spike hyzering for placement, not distance.

GL or Opto for each?

I've found the GL to be less stable than Opto, at least as far as the XXX is concerned.
