Trident from Latitude 64°

Postby keltik » Thu Jun 11, 2009 3:58 am

the subject of this disc came up in another thread and i'm still curious.....i read on the Lat64 site that the "Trident is a reliable overstable control driver good for headwinds and hyzer bombs. It fits between Striker and Riot in stability but with less speed."

apparently it was delayed from production.....and then i read on the PDGA boards that they were not able to mold it all and it won't ever come out.....probably lies

regardless i'm still curious about this disc since everyone on here is absolutely orgasmic over the rest of the Lat64 offerings but no word of this particular mold......it sounds like it may be a wiener i mean a winner

So a slower and slightly more stable Striker (I assume shorter too). Could this be the answer to a champ gazelle (that flies like a gazelle) need and/or a more direct answer to the Teebird?? This might compliment my QJLS better than the Striker for the more overstable fairway driver slot. Hmmmm.

Got my hands on a few Tridents. Didn't toss them, but they looked pretty beefy. Max-like fat nose, but with a domeyish top. The rim was smaller, and of course concave, too.

Latitude 64 Striker
Max Weight: 177.6
Diameter: 21.4
Height:1.6
Rim Depth: 1.2
Rim Thickness: 1.9

Latitude 64 Trident
Max Weight: 177.6
Diameter: 21.4
Height:1.4
Rim Depth: 1.1
Rim Thickness: 1.9

From the numbers, it looks as though the Trident will not really be significantly slower than the Striker. The rim thickness is identical. It's also lower profile. Tumpsi says the nose is beefy, so perhaps that's why it flies a little slower than the striker. (Pure guess/conjecture: Striker bottom with XXX top?). Sounds like a good mod. overstable driver for lower power players... Still seems too fast to be considered a fairway driver though.

EDIT: must be a new top; the XXX is 21.5cm in diameter.

well "Fairway Driver" is just a marketing term used by Innova.....Latitude 64° calls the disc a "Stable Control Driver".....which is often used interchangeably with "Fairway Driver"......but we also drive off the tee with a putter or a Midrange (Driver).....i guess you could call this disc a speed 8 or 9.....but those numbers are also mainly marketing tools and/or relative numbers.....it may end up being a large diameter viking.....

Banzai you also got me looking at the tech specs page.....wtf is the rim configuration number?.....the striker is a 29 the trident is a 36.75

Teebird 29.25
Kite 36.25 O_O??? Lucy ju got some splainin' to doooo
