Probably just personal bias. Tired of hearing about stable midranges and fairways.

I kind of agree Kodachrome, it seems that Dynamic has stolen some of their thunder, ironic in that Lat makes their discs. Dynamic has a lot of vocal fans who proclaim their greatness, and a lot of Lat 64 molds that were as good get lost in the dust of hype.

Trident and Pain are great molds, and should continue forward - the drivers they dumped seems fairly valid to me.

My guess is that maybe the metal mold itself has worn out and it wasn't selling that great, rather then invest in the same mold come out with something less overlapping with the XXX.

Could be the same issue with the others, Pain is old. Doesn't seem to sell much. Now they are coming out with the Compass, another OS Midrange. Of course they have the Mace too.

As far as the drivers the Villain and Blitz really are not super sellers and what do you know, they introduce the Cutlass.

New sells, new is better? Maybe.

The Trident was the final nail in the coffin for me and Lat64. I know all manufacturers have some inconsistency issues and maybe it's just been my bad luck, but the Trdent I bought flew like a glidless Eagle-L. From what I heard, I got one of the bad runs, go figure!

The only Lat64 discs I have left is a few Claymores. I don't care what they make OOP, I don't see myself buying another LAT64 disc in the foreseeable future.

The Trident might have been the worst offender though, I had two, one flipped a bit, the other was a beefcake.

My overall experience with Trilogy is that it is not any better or worse then any of the other big disc makers. I actually prefer a little inconsistency as I like to carry a couple of the same molds usually and it's nice to have one that's a little more stable then the other.

There's inconsistencies from different batches of plastic and then there's differences from a mold retool. I'm pretty sure there's a thread somewhere about the trident getting a retool.
The beefy ones are the original mold and the ones that turn some with late fade are the retool.

I guess they might feel the Spark is good enough to do Trident things as well at less OS XXX things?

To this point, this is the best explanation I have heard for taking the Trident OOP.

That certainly seems to be Innova's business model vis-a-vis some molds. And one cannot say it's a failed business model...

Anyone looking to stock up on these while they still can, there is a good selection at Infinite Discs
