There was a gorgeous pink burst GL Trident in the used bin today that looked like it had been thrown meekly in a field, once tops so I couldn't resist. I love the rim profile. Gonna see how it fares against my old Banshee and EXP-X for my FH roller, thumber and other overstable junk role.

Has anyone compared trident and this new mold Pioneer? I switched from trident to spark and i was happy. But then they made spark more understable and ruined it. I don't want to chase after oop discs.

If the Pioneer is supposed to be the L64 firebird -which is what I've heard- it will probably be in a different league than the Trident. Firebirds I've thrown have all been more HSS than Tridents. Your best option might be getting some xXxs and beating them in. Those share a kind of blunt wing the Trident has and are more consistently OS, though a friend of mine has some beat ones that seem very workable.

Not sure what is the speed of pioneer, but xxx is too fast for my trident type of shots. I have thrown some. Something with speed around 7 would be nice. Looking for slower and truly OS "firebird".
Trident was marked as speed 5 at some point but it is definately faster.

My opto tridents were silly overstable. I could throw those in any anny and they would still fade back. I throw around 450 with forehand and I got barely any turn in my tridents.

My Tridents are easily as stable as a Firebird.

I'm jealous, you guys got all the good ones. Even the new run of moonshines from last year aren't as stable as some of the old ones.

I have several overstable ones I will never throw. Fortunatly I have a decent stack of the flat straighter ones.

The prodigy fairways are the closest I have seen to the trident in flight speed and feel. I throw the f3 with a trident, similar feel but finishes straight.

I know, I traded you for at least one of them and it's fantastic
If I beat my current moonshine one in a little more it might be of interest to you for another swap.

I think I've found the closest thing to a Trident without being a Trident in a Resistor. I don't have one but I tossed one my friend has, and watched him throw it around the other day and they're pretty close. Both are kind of mid/fairway tweeners in terms of length and workable with a large fade. If I didn't have a stack of Tridents I'd pick a couple up to try
