I Like my drivers at the same weight, i went 172 on a gold line trident, and I am stoked on this thing. Beefy but workable. I think you will be fine with your current weights, this thing is beefy and will stay that way. Opto will be super duper beef and gold line will be super beef. Loving the trident!!

Thanks! It looks like we have a lot of similar tastes in discs. You should kick that Leo out of your bag for a River!

I tried and can inter change them, but... the leo does so much better on lower lines and for me is less squirley. I still have a stack of rivers for when i feel like it but my leos always win out. I did not throw lat for quite a while last year and beginning of this year, but they have made a return to the bag and my game is better for it. but sorry long live the mighty leopard!!!

I just picked up a 170 GL Trident to try out. Used to have a 172 but didn't find a spot in the bag. I'm going to give it another shot.

I wanted a 165-168, but damn it was hard to locate one in that weight!

Disc Nation has quite a few in that weight right now...Opto, at least.

I was thinking that the trident would be stupid stable. It is only dumb stable! straight with a hard fade. This trident will now be my only super stale disc in the bag. It powers own well and is kind of like my chip shot disc. overhand, hyzer, hard left. done and done. mmmmm trident, not your daddy's gum anymore!!!

I still vote xXx over Trident. Threw a Trident before and found lightweight GL XXX's to be more versatile.

The Trident was good at getting lost.

Well damn. I just bought a Trident before you posted this.

Oh well. I guess I will just have to buy an XXX if I lose the Trident. Shucks, more Latitude.

Buddy of mine gave me a 170g opto trident and I'm loving the heck out of it! Personally I don't see the point of a GL or lower weight one as the whole purpose of the disc is to be as beefy as possible (and therefore predictable). It's great for wooded shots where you HAVE to go straight then fade, and if thrown low it won't skip too far once it runs out of steam. Line drive, cut left, sit.
